Our Sprint Towards The Finish Line

Our Sprint Towards The Finish Line

Friday, 28 April, 2017

Dear Parents,

After Easter, schools embark on the sprint towards the annual finish line. We know it is May when our Grade 12 students assemble for their final exams. It's an exciting time for the students, but also for you as parents and us as teachers too. 

We should be excited but there is no reason to be nervous: assessment is the celebration of achievement. BBIS students have shown in the past that they are well prepared. As a cohort, the IB DP students last year were only beaten by one school and one point in Germany in their exam average grade. And the IB CP results were the best we had. So making sure the “kids” get enough sleep is the only thing we really can do for them at this stage.

The teacher and admin sprint includes planning curriculum, building renovations, and dates for events for the coming year. The general calendar for the next two years is on the website already.

Today you will receive a letter from the BBIS Board Chair, Dr. Frank Walter-von Gierke, regarding next year’s school fees. Please contact us in case you do not get this important message.

The last “Director’s platform” of this school year takes place on 16 May, 19:00, in the Primary Aula. We will round up the year with all info we have for you, respond to your questions and give you a sneak preview of 2017/18.

Wishing you a sunny long weekend,
Peter Kotrc
