Week in, Week out
A Secondary School publication

It's been a slow and steady start to the term, with mock exams wrapping up this week for our Year 11 & 13 students. 

We made the big announcement this week about the newly appointed Director of Secondary, Mr Richard Robinson, who will take over as Director from Mr William Bradley following his retirement at the end of this academic year. The news was shared with our whole BISI community, including students, and we're sure you will all join us in giving Mr Robinson your congratulations. 

We've lots coming up during term 2, including the official opening of our BISI Basketball Academy, which starts today. We've also got our annual Careers Fair coming up in March which our students are working on in the background and will be keeping you updated over the coming weeks. 

In our 'Week Out' section there's also some information about our Global Community Day which we hold every year. It's always a great success and an event which the students really enjoy being part of. If anyone would like to volunteer or find out more about the day, please check out the flyer below for more contact details. 

Happy reading!

Lunchtime & After-School Activities

Lunchtime & after-school activities start again this week. Students can sign-up directly with the teachers running the activity. If any of the activities require a permission slip and payment, students will not be permitted to join the activity until slips have been handed in to the activity leader. 

BISI Basketball Academy

After months of preperation, the BISI Basketball Academy finally starts on Monday 20 January, with our very experienced coach, Levent Topsakal. 

On Monday 20 & Tuesday 21 January, Mr Topsakal has invited interested students and parents to the sports hall between 3:30 - 4:30 to ask any questions and find out more about the training sessions. Our academy organiser, Ms Leyla, will also be there to give further details on how you can sign up for the rest of the term. 

Here's to a great new season of sport at BISI. 
Coming up from the PTA

Global Community Day is just around the corner and for those who are new to the school community this year, it's a great day to get involved in.

And that's us for another week. Next week we will update you on the opening of the BISI Academy, our upcoming Careers Fair and all other activities starting this term. 

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
