There has been a great deal of recognition for BIS Abu Dhabi in recent months in terms of international and local awards and acknowledgments. Many of you will have seen for instance Mr Horne speaking at a conference for the Crown Prince’s Court after our school was identified as a leading practitioner for Moral Education.
We are also delighted to inform everyone that the school has recently been shortlisted by Schools Compared across a wide range of categories for their 2019 UAE School Awards. As ever, this is testament to the attitude and commitment of everyone in our community: students, staff and parents.
BIS Abu Dhabi has been shortlisted in the following categories:
- IB Blended Curriculum School of the Year (this is for schools which do IB plus another curriculum, in our case the British curriculum)
- Best School for Sport
- Best School for Theatre and Performing Arts
- School Principal of the Year
We are always extremely proud of the achievements of our students; that is in terms of their excellent academic achievements and also their overall personal development and strong commitment to all the opportunities on offer. Members of staff do not work with students every day in order to win awards, but it is still extremely pleasing that their work is being valued and celebrated in such a way.
