BIS is proud to announce that we have opened a National Honor Society Chapter! BIS is one of few schools in China to offer NHS to its students. An induction ceremony was held on September 14th to celebrate and induct the NHS members of BIS.
The ceremony started with the welcome speech from our Academic Principal, Mr. Brian Rotunno. Then an NHS alumnus from our faculty, Mr. Michael Johnson, shared his experience on stage.
Led by MYP Coordinator Ms. Laura Ward, four inductees briefly introduced the four pillars of NHS – Scholarship, Service, Leadership and Character.
Afterwards, four candles standing for the four pillars were lit. The members made their pledge and received pins and certificates from our Academic Principal, Mr. Brian Rotunno and High School Coordinator, Mr. Matthew Kirk, in recognition of their NHS membership.
The National Honor Society (NHS)
The National Honor Society (NHS) is an American premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with NHS membership since its beginning in 1921.
As the only IB continuum school in Wuxi, BIS is authorized and accredited by various international academic associations.
