This award will recognise a subject-specific or whole-school initiative that has supported teaching and learning to the benefit of the students. BIS Houston will be judged on how the teaching and learning initiative goes beyond what the school would be doing as an effective international school. This could be a teaching and learning initiative relevant to COVID-19 or otherwise.
The International School Awards celebrate learning, teaching, community, wellbeing, leadership and strategic initiatives at international schools. They provide the opportunity for international schools to share best practice, creative endeavours, community participation, and innovation. Learn more here.
This year, due to the impact of COVID-19 on schools throughout the world, many initiatives will have been developed to respond to the crisis. As a result, the judges will be looking for initiatives that show innovation and the potential for change through adversity.
What a superb achievement! This is absolutely fantastic and testament to the amazing things our world class teachers lead on and deliver every single day.
When you see all of the elements described for this nomination you can really see how impactful the work our world class teachers are doing in transforming the lives of young people.
Congratulations on this wonderful achievement and we look forward to the results in January.
