Letter from the Principal


Dear Parents

Term is well underway and as you can see from our Facebook feed all age groups are very busy and most importantly, enjoying their various learning experiences.

The School Board is now fully engaged in appointing my successor which is being handled by Anthony Millard Consultancy (UK). It is hoped that the appointment process will be completed by December, the new Principal taking over my post in August 2018.

Football Victory!


On the afternoon of 21st September Team BISS played against the ISS for the first time in a mixed year MYP1-3, 9-a-side football match. The boys won 3-2 in a very tense and pulsating game in driving rain!

Well done to the boys, Mr Thompson and Arthur Hoth for developing the team.
