As we come to the end of this week, I am reminded of the diversity of opportunity and experience which AP2 offers. From the focus and determination of our students who sat exams, the joy and celebration of brass band music with the Desford Colliery Band visit, and looking to the future with a visit from the prestigious KAIST university, it has been a full and exciting week for our students.
Last Saturday family members, friends, and BIS staff gathered at the Park Hyatt to celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2016. There was a real buzz in the air throughout the ceremony, which involved speeches from Mr Carl Mincher (Head Teacher Secondary), Mr Ian Gibbons (British Consul General), and our outgoing Head Students, Gabby Cullen and Hikaru Hotta. The students reflected fondly on their time at BIS and spoke of looking forward to the next chapter in their lives. It was a real celebration of success and we hope that the Graduating Class of 2016 enjoyed their day. We’re looking forward to hearing about their next adventures!

When Desford Colliery Band Came to Play
The sounds of brass band music entertained all at AP2 on Wednesday when we were lucky enough to host a visit from the Desford Colliery Band who are touring Vietnam. The band worked extremely hard throughout the day and played 4 mini concerts, for Primary and Secondary students.The quality of the music was stunning and showed extreme professionalism. Photos and some sound clips are available here. A highlight for our concert band was a rehearsal session with the group. I hope you managed to catch them at The Conservatory last night where they gave a public performance. A superb band and we are very grateful for the time they spent teaching and entertaining our students.
KAIST is often referred to as the MIT of Korea and Asia and it was a privilege to host Professor Seung Lee, Dean of Admissions, Ms Jaeyoung Shim and Ms Eunjung Baek from Admissions this week. Read more about this prestigious institution and their visit to BIS on the BIS Hub.
