Dear Baldwin’s International School Community, (BIS).
I want to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to BBHS. The Nursery, Prep, Primary, Lower Secondary and Secondary (ICSE) years are an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. Each year will provide important transitions and the acquisition of new skills, knowledge, aptitude and above all right attitude that will enhance each student’s ability to apply learning in many ways. BBHS School is committed to providing a challenging and rigorous curriculum ranked the best in the Contry that helps each student progress at a developmentally appropriate rate and provides a safe environment for all students.
“In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa
In her quote, Mother Teresa very powerfully captures important wisdom about how to approach life in schooling to make it more fulfilling and significant. Teaching and learning offers us all numerous opportunities to focus on a number of “small things” that culminate over time to produce students that are prepared to do the “great things” of life. With this in mind, ultimately as a school community we are judged by the actions of our students and the way new student learning connects and impacts the world beyond our school. As an International school, I’m committed to integrating the performing art and Science into learning opportunities.
Our mission statement reflects this commitment:
“With the support of staff and families, BBHS students explore, express and excel holistcallcally in creatively. In partnership with our community, we integrate the art and Science to ignite enthusiasm, deepen understanding, and enhance learning for every student.”
As an International Educator, I value the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child as they go through the stages of transition from their primary years through early adolescence. I value life-long learning and aim to make your child’s learning experience at BIS School engaging and exciting.
As the principal of BBHS School, I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school. Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.
