Mr. Simon Higham, Principal
Thank you for taking time to engage and connect with our Weekly Highlights across what has been an extremely busy first full week back after the holiday break. Throughout the week, there has been international celebrations, sports days, visits and the continuation of mock examinations – it really has been great to see the variety of learning experiences for all of our BVIS students.

Mrs Mary McAloon, Head of Primary
On Monday, an aeroplane took off from the main hall runway with hundreds of children travelling to all sorts of exciting destinations. Some landed in Singapore, others in the Philippines, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, China, India with the final stop being Turkey. International week had begun for children in Years 1 and 2! Other year groups had equally as much fun in their entry to learning about the countries their year groups had chosen. International Week is all about others’ traditions, culture, climate, language and food, which supports our students to develop ‘Global Citizenship’.
Students shared their fantastic findings through a variety of ways in our assembly on Friday. The presentations of learning demonstrated how interesting and varied countries and cultures are across the globe.
I would like to thank all those involved in preparing and delivering this year’s International week with a special thanks to Ms Emily Purdy, our Lien Ket Coordinator who led the vision and direction of the students’ learning.
