Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 12/04/2019

It has certainly been a frantic, but enjoyable, final week of term at BIS HCMC.

As I informed you last week, we have hosted a BSO Inspection and will receive a detailed report of the outcome in a few weeks. This report will be made available to the school community in its entirety.  However, on Wednesday following the completion of the inspection, Mark Evans (Lead Inspector) provided the Senior Leadership Team  with some verbal feedback which was extremely positive. The whole inspection team was very impressed with what they saw and heard around the school over their three days. BIS will show up very strongly in the forthcoming inspection  report  in all nine BSO  areas. Importantly, as well as achieving these exceptional standards, the inspecting team were so impressed with how the staff, parents and students interacted within the school community whilst showing such a sense of belonging and trust in BIS. I assure you that we can look forward, with excitement, to an exceptional final report which we anticipate will be published early in May.

I have witnessed two outstanding productions at the school this week. Firstly, the Secondary school’s  ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ was such an exceptional production that it  would not have looked out of place on London’s West End! The students and staff involved worked very hard over the last few months to produce a wonderful performance which they can all be proud of. I would like to offer my congratulations to every single person involved for giving the BIS community three nights of absolute enjoyment. 

On Wednesday morning at the  EY&IC, I was extremely pleased to be able to enjoy ‘Hats Off’, the Year 2 annual production. It was performed to perfection so, once again, my sincere congratulations to all the students and staff involved who thoroughly entertained a large and appreciative audience.

On Thursday morning, a PTG Community Coffee Morning was held at the EY&IC to support ‘Thuy’s Dream’ which is an organisation set up to support cancer victims in Vietnam. It was an enjoyable, but sometimes emotional, morning with its true purpose to raise funds for an extremely worthy cause. Once again a grateful ‘thank you’ from me to the parents, staff and students for what was a very special morning.

Y13 Assembly - BIS HCMC

This morning we said goodbye to our Y11 and Y13 students who are now undertaking their study leave as they prepare for their IGCSE and IBDP examinations respectively. I would like to wish them the best of luck as they embark on this journey.

It just remains for me to wish you all a wonderful holiday  and we look forward to welcoming all the children back to school on the 2nd May.
