BIS News Update: Monday 31st March 2014

After a good deal of anticipation on the part of Year 11 students the 2014 summer examination session has got under way. Last week our Artists sat the Art examination and this week we have ICT examinations and Oral exams for English and French. 

On Tuesday we were delighted to have Dr. Olajobi in school talking to students about Career aspirations and choices. Dr Olajobi's talk was entitled 'Making Your hobby Your Career'. It was a real pleasure to hear someone speaking with such passion about the need for students to think their career choices through. His message was it's your life, your career and your happiness- you make the choices, sentiments I entirely agree with.

Year 10 science students were out of school this week visiting a cement works looking at what they have learnt in the classroom works in the real world. 

Our PTA Executive met on Wednesday morning to continue planning for the Lower School Formal Dinner to be held this Friday. A lot of work has gone into this planning of a special occasion for our younger students who will have the opportunity to celebrate the coming world cup with a taste of Brazil.

On Saturday 5th April the PTA have also organised a Parent Teacher Lunch in New Horizons at which we hope to see as many parents as possible meeting with teachers in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.  

Last week ended in a very energetic manner with parents and students joining together for a Zumbathon. All who attended left slightly exhausted from their exertions but energised for the weekend. This is something the PTA would like to repeat before the end of the year. 

Please don't forget the school production of Romeo and Juliet which will be staged in New Horizons at 4:30pm on Tuesday 8th April.
