Mr. Simon Higham, Principal
On behalf of the whole school, I would like to welcome you all back to BVIS for Term 3. I trust that you have had a very relaxing and family orientated holiday and are ready to engage and connect with our school once again so that we can all provide the very best learning opportunities for all children.
Please take time to talk about and share the Weekly Highlights with your friends and family and remember to encourage as many BVIS parents as you can to read them for a minimum of just 5 minutes per week. Your support in this matter would be highly appreciated.
Always Looking to Improve
As outlined in the final Highlights of Term 2 there was significant improvements to our facilities across the school made during the break. I mentioned substantial investment in:
- The creative arts provision to enhance our links with Juilliard with a new double sized dance studio and extended performance spaces
- Improved school access for parents in terms of a new uniform shop and updated outdoor social areas
- Increased toilet provision for Primary students
- Updated interactive technology across Primary and Secondary classrooms.
- The creation of an examinations room to ensure that our whole school indoor sports facilities are not compromised during examination periods
- We have also added an MIT inspired timeline to the 2nd floor Primary corridor. This represents all the major inventions through history and aims to motivate our students to think what they can invent in the future.
I am pleased to confirm that all these projects have been successfully completed and are ready for students and parents to now access.
We continue to look forward to seeing the impact that these developments will make on the learning outcomes of students. Please take time to go and visit these new developments during your next visit to school – I’m sure you will be impressed like our children are!
