As we all know, Music plays a vital part in the life of our school. Next Wednesday, we have the Secondary Winter Concert to look forward to which has a Beatles theme. The programme looks absolutely wonderful and is one of many exciting musical events taking place in the last four weeks of Term 1. The Beatles are one of my favourite bands of all time and it was really wonderful to attend the recent BIS ‘Battle of Bands’ which was a stunning event with high quality music all the way through the evening. This week in my office, I met and congratulated the winning band, Mad Friday. It was very enlightening to talk to the five young ladies who made up this talented group and to have the opportunity to offer my personal congratulations.
Next Monday and Tuesday, we are holding two major events at the school. Monday will see our annual TEDx event, when we host a team of great speakers made up of students, staff and guests. The final speaker at the TEDx event will be Lord David Puttnam who is also Guest of Honour at our second major event on Tuesday - the official opening of the EY&IC. We are very pleased to welcome Lord Puttnam to BIS as Chairman of Nord Anglia’s Education Advisory Board (EAB) and they will be meeting at the EY&IC after the official opening. During these two days, we are also pleased to welcome Andrew Fitzmaurice, who is CEO of Nord Anglia, and Andy Puttock, the NAE Education Director. Both Andrew and Andy will speak at the TEDx event and attend the EY&IC opening ceremony as well as attend the EAB meeting.
As ever, very exciting and busy times at BIS HCMC, therefore, I would like to wish you a very relaxing weekend and, hopefully, see some of you at the Primary PTG Family Evening on Saturday.
Anthony Rowlands, Principal
