Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 02/03/2018

02 March 2018

It was really nice  to return to school after a relaxing  Tet break and I do hope that the wider school community also  had a very  enjoyable holiday. Being part of Nord Anglia Education (NAE)  brings many benefits to BIS HCMC.

As we  are aware, we have embraced the music programme that is offered to the school, with our collaboration with Juilliard School, New York. In August 2018, we will be launching a new Drama programme  also in collaboration with Juilliard. Anne-Marie Astley, a member of our Drama department, is currently attending training at The Juilliard School in New York and will be responsible for initiating and driving this exciting programme at BIS HCMC in the next academic year.

In addition, NAE also have a collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the top five universities in the world. I am very pleased to announce that BIS HCMC  will also be launching a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) programme  in collaboration with MIT. In April 2018, a group of four students has been selected to go to MIT in Boston to work on STEAM related projects where they will be joined by other students from some other NAE schools. The four students are Matheo Luong (Y6), Naomi Tran (Y6), Anya Chakrabarty (Y7) David Nguyen (Y7) and they will be accompanied by Mr Luke Dyer, who is the ICT/DT leader in the Primary School. The students were selected from a total  40 applicants from Year 6 and Year 7. The standard of the applications received was outstanding  and each applicant had to present their ideas and reasons for going to MIT to  a  selection panel. The panel, made up of myself, Mr James Chandler and Mr Simon Higham, had a very difficult task choosing the successful candidates but in the end, the decision was unanimous. I am sure that each student will have a unique and fulfilling experience at MIT. In addition Mr. Luke Dyer and Mr, James Chandler have been selected by the school to go to  MIT in May to undertake training to further develop our STEAM programme at BIS HCMC in collaboration with MIT.  

Last night (Thursday), I attended a PTG dinner held at the Auditorium in the Secondary School campus. As well as being a lovely social event, we had thought provoking presentations by Ms Dee Grimshaw (Deputy Head of the Junior Campus) and Ms Jutta  Arnaud (Parent)  on the subject of ‘Third Culture Kids’. We also had three Sixth Form Students (Riona Carriage, Saebom Park and Charlotte Jacquemin) in attendance who spoke about their personal experiences of being ‘Third Culture Kids’. They spoke articulately with thought and consideration whilst showing amazing confidence  in answering some challenging questions from the audience. I would like to thank the PTG and all who contributed to a wonderful evening.

I do hope that you have an enjoyable weekend.

Mr Anthony Rowlands, Principal
