Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 09/03/2018

09 March 2018

At the beginning of this week I attended the Nord Anglia Education (South East Asia) Leadership  Conference at Regents International School Pattaya. It was a very productive conference with over 100 representatives from each of the schools in our region.

The SEA Region is made up of the following schools:

  • BIS Hanoi
  • BVIS Hanoi
  • Northbridge International School Phnom Penh
  • St Andrew’s International School Bangkok
  • Regents International School Pattaya
  • Dover Court International School Singapore
  • NIS Jakarta
  • British School Kuala Lumpur
  • The King’s School Manila
  • British School Yangon

At the conference we were welcomed by the Regional Managing Director for South East Asia, Mr Shaun Williams, and we were also addressed by two keynote speakers. Firstly, Dr Virachai (Founder of Regents International  School) who spoke about the ‘Changing Face of Education in Thailand’. This was followed by a presentation from Mr Andy Puttock the Education Director for NAE who spoke about the Strategic Direction of Nord Anglia Education. During the two day conference  there were a number of excellent  workshops  for us, as delegates, to experience offered by staff from all the schools. The theme of the conference was ‘Making Connections’  through Technology, EAL and Learning Support. It was a wonderful conference and great connections were certainly made. I would like to thank the Principal of Regents International School, Ms Sarah Osborne James, and her team for organising and hosting a wonderful event for us all.

Three outstanding events took place at the school yesterday (Thursday). Firstly, our Year 3 students and staff took part in a sleepover at the school. They slept in the Junior School Gym and had a nutritious supper with a number of exciting activities during the evening. They then had a hearty breakfast at school and it really was an enjoyable event. Thank you so much to the Year 3 staff who made this all possible. Secondly, in the Secondary Theatre we hosted our first BISHCMC TEDx Youth Event. As explained on their website “TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, ‘ideas worth spreading.’ It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.” It was a fascinating event to watch, full of great presentations and entertainment. My sincere congratulations to everyone involved with organising this enjoyable event. Finally, “Super Thursday” brought two exciting football games to the school. BIS Boys and Girls U19 teams  played their keen rivals ISHCMC. It was a pleasure to watch some of the quality football produced in these games. Our boys drew their game after being in the lead on two occasions and the girls won their game comfortably. Once again congratulations to our talented students and a grateful thanks to our dedicated staff for working with them in developing their footballing skills.

During the week some of our Y4, Y5 and Y6 students have been out  at various locations for their annual ‘Residentals.’ Reports from all locations indicate the children are all having a great time with their peers and staff. Once again I am grateful to our wonderful staff for their dedication in organising and attending these ‘Residentials.’ Next week it will be the turn of the remaining Y4, Y5 and Y6 students to go on their adventures.

I do hope that you have an enjoyable weekend.

Anthony Rowlands, Principal
