    The BBIS Annual Secondary Meet and Greet. On Thursday August the annual secondary Meet and Greet was held in the Sports Hall. The new Director of BBIS, Mr Nick Hazell, welcomed parents of students in Grades 6-10 to meet with the teachers and support staff to put names to faces and to make, in some cases at least, first contact with those members of staff who will be working most closely with, and supporting, their children this academic year. It was an opportunity to forge or re-forge...

    After 2 years of intensive training for our Primary and Secondary staff, we are now entering the next phase of our Whole School Positive Education initiative.

We are also establishing a...

    Last year, World Cleanup Day united 18 million people across 157 countries and territories for the biggest waste collection day in human history.

This year, World Cleanup Day will happen on September 21st – and BBIS will take part in it. Following the motto ‘Clean Seeberg – Green BBIS Campus’ our student action group is calling on our...

    Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast. (Shakespeare) On Monday 19 August, we departed from our normal back-to-school routine to focus on welcoming our new students and our returning students to the last two years of their secondary school experience. The students spent the early part of the day getting know their classmates and their homeroom teacher. They also spent some of this time completing a WOOP Kit to think about their short, medium and long term goals: WISH: What is...

    We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow mouldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read. (Jules Verne) We would like to encourage more secondary school students to read, so please donate your used books (fiction, non-fiction) to the book exchange. Sophia (now Grade 11) built beautiful shelves for this purpose in her Grade 10 Design Technology class.

    It is time to change. In collaboration with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, BBIS hosted the Inaugural European Sustainability Leadership Summit.

    Dear Parents and Students That was the year that was ….. As we rush headlong towards the last day of school with all the excited anticipation of those lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer, I wanted to look back over this academic year and remember some of the broad learning opportunities, annual and new, in school and beyond the gate:
