Dear Parents

This week has been the final week in our Term 3 Extra Curricular Clubs programme. With 125 clubs on offer, it has been a very busy period allowing a diverse range of experiences for our children to take part in. Thank you for supporting our children throughout the whole programme this year and please can I remind you all that pick up for the last 2 weeks of term is at the regular time of 2.30pm.

Summer Music Concert

 Summer concert1


Wow! What an event!

I trust that all parents who attended yesterday's Summer Music Concert, enjoyed the event as much as I did. Events such as these truly define what our school's vision for education is - a rounded education with the commitment to develop the whole child. Congratulations to all those who were involved!

Take time to read some of the reflections of the children who have been working with our Learning Support Department this year. It certainly has been a year of hard work and perseverance.


PTG – We Still Need Your Help

As we approach the end of the school year, we start planning for the next academic year. We are looking for parents to volunteer on different event committees for the 2016-2017 school year.

The events run by parents for the BIS students adds to the social fabric of the school. Please consider signing up to any of the committees that BIS AP1 is going to need to run all the events. Remember, if an event does not have a committee to organise or volunteers to help, it may not run.

This signup list is just to create a steering committee.  Once the event is approaching, we will recruit more volunteers to help run it. The committee will be in charge of coordinating the event.  The school will help with the logistics and the funds needed to run each event. Please use this link below to sign up.


Thank you in advance for your valuable support. Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions via this email: bisvnptgap1@gmail.com

we need you
