BIS Principal's Newsletter 28th February 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope that all members of the BIS family had a pleasant and relaxing break and welcome everyone back to school. I equally extend a warm welcome to the new students who have joined us this week.

We are also pleased to welcome a new member of our teaching staff. Miss Mene has joined the English Department and will be teaching classes in Years 7 to 9 initially. She is a very experienced teacher and I am sure that she will make an excellent contribution to our school.

Upgrading of Facilities

Surveyors from the UK will be visiting BIS before the end of this term to conduct a survey of our current Science facilities with a view to an overhaul and upgrade in readiness for the next academic session. We are also planning a major upgrade of our boys’ boarding hostels before September 2017 as part of our phased development plan of improvements to the infrastructure of the school.

With best wishes for a successful second half of the term.

Yours sincerely,


Howard Bullock.
