Einstein was a person who believed in civil rights for everyone and stood up for African American people during a difficult period in American history. Importantly, he believed that the work that he did in science was to help the human race to become better human beings.
At BIS HCMC we also believe in serving others. We aim to develop people who care for everyone inside and outside the school community. As we all know, one of our key attributes in the BIS Aide Memoire, is Care. Students and staff at the school are educated to be kind and to respect other people. We have developed a key programme at BIS which is our ‘Community Service Programme.’ This programme is now a fundamental part of the school’s daily life. Each of our Year Groups is linked to community partners in order to support and serve them. The programme is geared towards serving community and is not about raising money. This programme is wonderfully coordinated by Clover Sharman, our Community Service Project Manager, with the support of her staff and the BIS community. It is a comprehensive and supportive programme aimed at serving others and BIS HCMC are part of a pilot scheme to develop the idea of service to others more widely within Nord Anglia Education.
I do hope that you have a most wonderful weekend.
Anthony Rowlands, Principal
