This week we have enjoyed a fabulous opening night for our Visual Arts Exhibition. If you get a chance to visit, the exhibition is now open to the public. Details are on our Facebook page and have been highlighted in AsiaLife in print and on their website here:
This week we also enjoyed an evening of KS3 drama at our annual KS3 Showcase. This is an event where we gain an inside view on the work that our students undertake in drama lessons in years 7, 8 and 9. My thanks go to our drama teachers, Mr. Sargent, Mrs. Astley and Ms. Sinker for putting on such a wonderful opportunity for students and parents.
Last Saturday our graduating year 13 students were honoured at a daytime ceremony at the Park Hyatt Hotel, followed by an evening dinner. The formal part of the day included a poignant speech from Mr. Maurice Nguyen on the founding of BIS and the importance of the day for his daughter, Jenny, for whom the school was originally conceived and founded. The Head Students presented mementoes to our outgoing Head Students and our outgoing Head Girl, Annette Wu, and Head Boy, Nicholas Yap spoke fondly of their time at BIS. Nick and Annette received a standing ovation from their peers, who were clearly touched, judging by the tears in many eyes. Extracts from their speeches will be in this year’s Yearbook, alongside photographs of the event.
