Year 10 & 12 Students Ask Our Alumni
Last week we welcomed back some familiar faces as 12 BIS HCMC Alumni joined us in the common room on Friday lunchtime to answer questions from current students about life after BIS. It was fantastic to greet so many alumni and welcome them back to pass on their thoughts and experiences to students who are just embarking on their post-BIS journey. Our expert panel was made up of alumni from ...
We really appreciate the time that our alumni have given in joining us for this year’s Ask the Alumni event and thoroughly enjoy having them in throughout the year. They have often remembered how useful these events were for them at the point that they made their university decisions and it is great that they have been able to continue this tradition and pass on their advice to our current students. We highly value the relationships that are built through their time in school and are pleased that the affiliation with BIS still remains. We’re always happy to welcome them home!
Week Without Walls for Year 7 & Year 8
Our Year 7 and 8 students experienced a week developing their learning skills outside of the traditional walls of the curriculum and classroom. From the 26th to the 31st of May the youngest members of our campus took part in a range of different activities designed by their teachers to challenge them as leaders and learners.
The activities ranged in theme from STEAM projects to Juilliard collaborations to wellbeing, with a lot of fun being had across the week. If you would like to know more beyond the winning video above from our History Amazing Race activity, you can read the Week Without Walls for Year 7 and Year 8.
Events Committee - Tech No! Day
When the idea of a no-technology day arose in the Events Committee’s initial brainstorming they were reluctant at best: they knew how much the students here at BIS love using phones and laptops. However, after more consideration and discussion they became more keen on the idea and the potential challenges it could create. Our continued focus on well-being and mental health at BIS reinforced how beneficial this day could be across the school. Achieving balance is something that we feel, in this day and age, is increasingly important and difficult to achieve. So...using our school as a guinea pig, we launched the social experiment that was BIS’ first TechNo! Day.
Year 7 and 8 English Competitions 2019
