Welcome to the October edition of BISSness.  It has been a busy half term across all the departments.  Scroll down and read what we've been up to.



Letter from The Principal


Dear Parents,


The term is flying past at a fast rate of knots and already preparations are in place for upcoming concerts and performances. It's always a joy to see our youngest children learning their lines and singing their hearts out. I know you will all be able to look forward to some eye watering treats just before the Christmas vacation.



High Performance Learning


BISS is a High Performance Learning school and committed to encouraging every child to adopt a growth mindset. Here's how every BISS parent can contribute to that aspiration and help his/her own child reach the best they can be.

Fabulous 40!

Spotlight on writing


Have a look at a selection of writing from some of the youngest children in PYP up to some of the oldest in MYP.  Some of our students have also contributed writing to this newsletter giving them the opportunity to write for a real audience.
