Message from Principal

This week we held our first Parent-Teacher Consultations of the school year. This is the first formal chance for teachers to discuss the progress of students with their parents, but it isn’t the only one and we encourage parents to talk regularly to their children and to their children’s teachers about their performance as the research is clear - children do better in school when their parents communicate often with teachers.

One of the best ways to do so, is to become involved in the life of the school. Parents who take part in school activities and events have more opportunities to talk socially with teachers, outside the classroom, and to break the ice and build links – so that when there is a need to communicate, it is informal and quick.

As it happens, the end of the Parent-Teacher Consultation week also saw our Parent Association host a hugely successful Bake Sale. With teachers, as well as students, taking the chance to test our parents’ baking skills, it was a great moment to engage in small talk and for teachers to find out what parents think and for parents to see how the school works.

If you missed the Bake Sale, there’s always our United Nations Day, at the end of the coming week. Every year, parents run an incredible International Fair and there are performances in our theatre throughout the day. Parents are warmly encouraged to join in the fun and get a feel for how teachers interact with students, and how students respond.

And the week after that will see BSN host a huge sporting event as schools from across China join us to compete in the Under 11s Football event of the Nord Anglia Global Games. With hundreds of young footballers expected to join our four teams, our sports team is always on the lookout for volunteer parents to ensure our visitors get a warm welcome, and it is, of course, another chance to spend some time in school and get a feel for the life of our campus.
