Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 20/10/2017

20 October 2017

What a wonderful school week we experienced at BIS HCMC to celebrate the end of the first half term of the 2017/18 academic year.

The BIS/BVIS Primary Young Musician of the Year Final held at the Secondary Theatre on Tuesday evening was such a special event. We were treated to outstanding performances from the students who had already progressed through a tough qualifying process in order to even make the final. I was impressed by the variety of performances and each student showed such enjoyment in performing in front of a very appreciative audience. My congratulations to all the students from both BVIS and BIS who participated and some sincere congratulations to Caitlin Chua who won the coveted Primary Young Musician of the Year Trophy. I am grateful to Ms Frances Amos and the music team who coordinated this wonderful event.

Going into classrooms is the best part of my role as a Principal and it is something I will do more of in the coming weeks now that I am more comfortable with other school issues. This week, I had the pleasure of spending some time in Year 2 and Year 3 classes at both Primary campuses. I was so pleased to be able to read a story to the students in these classes. We have some really special students at our school and it was an absolute pleasure to interact with them in this way. Thank you Year 2 and Year 3, both at APP and TX.

International Day on the final day of the week was, indeed, very special in the Secondary school. The day commenced with the parade of nations which preceded the International Day Assembly and was a vibrant launch to this colourful and cultural day. Events to celebrate the day happened thick and fast in all areas of the Secondary school and it was wonderful to experience some of them. My sincere thanks to all the students and staff who worked so hard to produce such an outstanding day. However, it would be remiss of me not to mention the amazing support we received from our parents who worked tirelessly to set up classrooms as ‘countries’ and support us throughout the day.

As I have said in an earlier update, we have a lot to look forward to during the next half term. Work on our new Early Years and Infant campus continues to progress well and our planning to move into the campus is equally efficient. I know that many parents and members of the local community have concerns about the additional traffic problems that our new campus may bring. As a school, we have always looked, to the best of our ability, at ways that we can help to manage the traffic around our campuses. However, as we all know this is not an easy fix. The school is in a great location, meaning that the majority of our students do not have to travel extremely long distances to travel to school. However, being in this convenient location does add to the traffic problem at specific times of the day. Please be assured that we will liaise closely with the school community over the next few months in order to make traffic flow around our campuses as efficient as possible.

I would like to take this opportunity of wishing our school community a pleasant and relaxing half term break.

Anthony Rowlands, Principal
