Mr Tim Deyes: Weekly Update 09/09/16

09 September 2016

As we come to the close of the third week of the new academic year at BIS my week has been full of new experiences.  New(ish) as I am to both BIS and Vietnam I am still at the stage of discovery as the school year unfolds at what sometimes feels to be a vertiginous pace.

As is the norm in the role that I carry out I need to work into my daily routine spaces to purposefully take me out of the confines of my office and interact with all the members of the BIS Community: it is an easy trap to fall into being a desk bound Principal who is distanced from the reality of what school life is really about.

On a wider school level the planning stages of the new Infant Campus are nearing completion.  This will be a monumental event in the developmental growth stage of BIS in that it will tangibly bring each section of the school into a very close physical proximity that will enable far more agile communication processes and planning, enabling the One School notion to quickly become even more of a reality.

At BIS we always make sure that we live and breathe our Aide Memoire and accordingly communication is of utmost importance to us.  I had the pleasure of speaking at and attending the Year 7 Parent Information meeting, where parents were able to meet the Form Tutors who will provide the vital pastoral guidance and care for their children in what is a very important transitional year for them. 

One of the elements that I feel proudest of at BIS is our commitment to working with the wider community and this week I was at our TX campus to see the first visit of our community partners to BIS.  What most impressed me were the natural friendships that immediately sprung up between the multitudes of students that were present from a variety of distinct social and economic backgrounds.  There really are a lot of advantages in seeing the world through the eyes of a child.

And just to give you an idea of a small part of a day in the life of….we are five hours into my working day and I have already attended a House Assembly, briefly greeted the PTG,  travelled to TX and back, had lunch with the fantastic “Finer Diners” students, corrected and arranged a meeting regarding the Extended Essay student I am supervising, had    my weekly meeting with Mr Ian, bonded over cake (quite delicious cake I must add) with a group of Teachers, met a group of new BIS Teachers to discuss their experience so far at our school, listened to a fantastic pop-up music concert in AP2 and dealt with umpteen other tasks. And the day has really only just started!
