BIS HCMC says NO to plastic
Over the last twelve months we have seen a steady but inexorable movement taking place within the grounds of BIS. Individuals and small groups have been saying no to plastics, upcycling, educating and gathering towards a single global goal. There have been many small changes already made this year, but we are looking forward to an even greater movement.

Introducing the new PTG Committee
As parents you are an important part of the BIS community and through the many and varied PTG events held throughout the year, we have welcomed a great support from you. Many of these events would not be possible without our PTG Committee and I would like to say a final thank you to this year’s energetic PTG Committee for all of their efforts from the Christmas BISzaar to Social Nights and everything else in between.
I am very happy to see that most of this year’s team will be returning next year with a few extra members too. I look forward to working with you all and thank you for your commitment to your children and the BIS Community.
