BIS Seniors get a “GRIP” on Leadership

Mar 22, 2014   //   by jhaynes   //   Blog  //  No Comments
Kids go to GRIP Conference

BIS School Leaders and emerging leaders participating in the GRIP leadership convention  bonded as a cohesive leadership team and learnt from each other what it means to be a “hero” (Sleeman Sports Centre, February 2014).

Brisbane Independent School’s student community is undergoing a transformation, as student leaders coach themselves and their younger peers to role-model the quality of integrity.

BIS is renowned for its focus on individualised education and collaborative democracy, where every voice is valued. At the same time, the school community recognises the need to foster leadership in our students, and to prepare our children for ‘what comes next’ after BIS.

Do you know anyone who has worked for (or has been) a State or Federal Member of Parliament? Or someone who has managed a large business or organisation? We would love to hear from you. Term 2 will feature the BIStopia micro-economy where our school leaders will be immersing themselves in government and democratic processes – we are keen for the children to meet people with real world experience in the many complexities of governing and leading.

Wednesday 13th of November – SPEAKING UP FOR YOUR PREP CHILD – Free Workshop

Oct 19, 2013   //   by bisadmin   //   Events  //  No Comments
LEARN HOW TO HELP YOUR PREP CHILD NAVIGATE THE FIRST YEAR OF SCHOOL
FREE WORKSHOP

Are you worried about your child’s transition to school next year? How do you share your concerns with your child’s teacher? Each child is different so how do you avoid your child being overlooked in class?

Learn how to communicate effectively with your child’s teacher about:

  • Learning styles and special needs
  • Assessment and NAPLAN
  • Bullying
  • Values
  • Curriculum design

The first year of school can be a challenging journey for both parent and child. Start it with a clear plan: identify what matters to you. You will leave the session with a written commitment to your child’s education, reminding yourself when you need to stand up and advocate for them during the first, vital years of schooling.

Wednesday 13th of November 10am
Brisbane Independent School
2447 Moggill Road Pullenvale
RSVP 3378 5466 office@bis.org.au
Children welcome
