As we approach the final few days of the year, we have filled the days with activity, as ever. It is easy to be busy, but the trick is to be productively busy and it’s certainly been a productive week at AP2.
Many BIS students and many from other schools visited this week to take their ABRSM Exams (http://vn.abrsm.org/en/home). We are proud to be a centre for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and to host the annual examinations. We are pleased, also, to be able to offer the pianists among the candidates a much improved experience, having taken delivery of a second baby grand piano this term, located in the Theatre.
This week we have held the first ever Science and Engineering Week at AP2, a new initiative coordinated by our Head of Chemistry Ms. Ciara Gillespie. Many events have taken place in and out of lessons throughout the week, promoting science and engineering for all.
Articles in BISbuzz this week highlight the IB Diploma Programme. Last week we welcomed Year 11 students back into school for 3 days of pre-IB induction and our IB Coordinator, Mr. Richard Arch, describes some of the events and activities. I have also included an article from The South China Morning Post which gives a small insight into one of the core elements of the IB Diploma, the Theory of Knowledge.
