It was a great pleasure to welcome Craig Leeson to BIS today. Craig is the director of the award winning documentary “Plastic Ocean” and his impassioned presentation and discussion with our students will now add much to our activity towards reaching our vision of ‘Zero Plastic 2020’, our commitment to zero single-use plastics in our school community by this time. More on this event will follow.
The day also began with the next thrilling round in our Sixth Form debating competition where the heated discussion centred around a motion ‘Should governments impose a night time curfew on teenagers?’.
During our lunchtime we were treated to a great tonic to this serious debate as students challenged teachers in the finale of Strength Week, ‘Beat the Teacher’. Strength in mind, body and community has been the theme of the week and all aspects were evident in this wonderful fun event to round off the week.
Mai Tam- Challenging Taboos
Our Community Service Coordinator shares the experience of some of our IB students who have recently delved into the reality of the power of language and how it can shape our perceptions with a visit to Mai Tam House of Hope, a place where the daily task of reshaping perceptions and seeking out the positivity is helping to Challenge Taboos.

This year MIT challenges YOU to be a STEAM Superhero!

Read more from Mark Orrow-Whiting, Director of Curriculum and Student Performance at Nord Anglia Education about how our collaboration with MIT is helping our students to develop as STEAM Superheroes.
NAE Global Challenge launch
Each year, all Nord Anglia schools are invited to participate in a project that sees students across our family tackle a set of challenges. The Global Challenge is designed to support the development of key skills and give our students extended learning opportunities to collaborate with students in their own school and around the world.
This year’s focus is on two prominent goals:
Goal 4 (Quality Education) and
Goal 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).
The Global Challenge is designed to give students and schools the opportunity to make the world a better place!
Listen to Shannon O’Shea, Team Leader, Political and Partner Advocacy for the UNICEF and four of our Nord Anglia Education students as they share the importance of these two goals in the official NAE Global Challenge Launch.
