Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 07/12/2018

As we head  towards the Christmas Holidays,  it is natural that within school we celebrate with Christmas productions and performances.

There have been several in the EY&IC this week  with the Year One production last Wednesday and the EYFS  performance this morning (Friday). The Year One performance focused on Santa Claus not being able to find his hat and involved a lot of characters trying to find it. Thankfully, after numerous Christmas songs and scenes, the hat was found and everybody was happy. It was a lovely performance which was thoroughly enjoyed by a large audience of family and friends and I would like to add my congratulations to all the Year One students and staff for a wonderful experience.

The EYFS Christmas singalong, which took place this morning, was a delightful event which was enjoyed by a huge number of family and friends who sang Christmas songs alongside our youngest students. It was, indeed, a very special celebration full of colour and Christmas cheer.

The Secondary Auditorium was a busy place this week with the Secondary ‘9 Carols and Readings’  taking place on Thursday evening. It involved a selection of readings and music which certainly got a large audience into the festive mood. In the same venue on Tuesday and Wednesday evening,  our younger Secondary students performed ‘Metamorphoses’ to captivated audiences on both evenings. The students, under the direction of Ms Jessica Bostock and Ms Emily Rhead, took us on a journey through a number of different short stories. We are now looking forward to the Primary Christmas Carol Service which will be held next Tuesday at the Junior School.

NAE Games Team 2018

It was wonderful to hear of the success of our Primary students at the NAE Global Games held last weekend at Northbridge International School, Cambodia. Our students performed exceptionally well and were great ambassadors for BIS HCMC showing great respect, integrity  and humility. Many congratulations to our team and to Ms Lindsey Shuttleworth and the staff for preparing and accompanying the students to Cambodia.

Secondary mentors

I met with two groups of Secondary students in my office  this week. One group of Year 10 students have been involved with a very successful peer mentoring programme initiated  by Mr Quarrington and Ms McWilliam. They really showed themselves  to be a group who care about the  wellbeing of others, which is very admirable and is a great credit to them all.

Penta students

The second group of students met with Mr Mark Evans who was doing a BSO  Pre Inspection visit at the school. They had a very detailed discussion and the students  were extremely  positive about the school and, in particular, the relationship between students  and staff. They also raised issues that they felt could be improved and we value that kind of feedback and honesty  from our students.

I do hope to see many of you at the Christmas  BISzaar tomorrow morning and wish you all a wonderful weekend.
