At BIS, we consider teachers as one of the most precious treasures of the school. They set an important role model and worked hard for shaping the lives of their students, in addition to teach them knowledge and skills.
We would like to extend our best wishes and appreciation to all BIS teachers, as well as teachers all around the world, on this special day of September 10th, Teacher’s Day.
We did a lot of joyful activities to celebrate the day in and out of campus.
Teachers started the day by receiving a warm message from Ms. Sue Su, Executive President in WeChat staff group at 6am this morning.
The school admin team has prepared surprise gifts for teachers as they arrived at the reception in the morning, presenting the gratitude to all teachers for their hard work.
While students also prepared cards, flowers and handcrafts that contains the heartful feelings and appreciation to their teachers.
At lunch time, a cake was prepared in the canteen, shared by teachers and students.
EY Assembly was held this morning. Teachers were surprised and moved by the cards and flowers secretly prepared by their lovely little students and executive team.
Also, sometimes our students are keen on “beating” the teachers, just like the PYP assembly we held this morning. Students representatives from four houses took part in a quiz competition with teachers and finally the Phoenix House “beat” the teachers! On the assembly, students whose behaviors meet the principle of IB Learner Profiles were also awarded by House tokens. They cheer for both their own houses and other houses where their friends are in!
On English, Mandarin and Visual Arts classes, our Secondary students also let out their inmost voice by designing posters and letters to celebrate Teacher’s Day.
In addition to a series of activities on campus, our teachers impressed the audience on the Excellent Teacher Awarding Ceremony held in district performance center on Sep.8th.
Ms. Bibiana Garcia gave a performance together with BIS teachers Ms. Aida Agudelo and Ms. Luz Alvarado and BIS student Daniel (G8) and Andres (G11). The Columbia Traditional National Dance and the enthusiasm they showed impressed the conference committee and all participants represented each school in community. They represented the proactive action of Boston International School to contribute in building international community for our area.
