On Friday we had two collaborative meetings with school staff/management.
In the morning we met with the BBIS director, Peter Kotrc, and the principals, Angela Hollington (Primary School), Michaela Jung (MYP), Andrew Hand (IBDP/CP) and Whitney Stirling (Boarding) for our first "Bridging Meeting". This kind of meetings will happen once each month during the school year.
We discussed expectations and interactions, the planned grant workshop, the Winterbazaar, the confusions concerning the ECAs during the start of the school year and the boarding school construction works. Other topics were the availability of the Blue Box (Reception) after 3 pm, the math placement tests in Grade 11 and the Parking situation (markings are already on their way and a new drop off solution is planned).
In the afternoon we met with Steve Gregory (SecSchool Student Support) to review the Orientation Day where new students were welcomed by school and parents. The goal was to find out was had worked well and what could be better next year.
