At BISL, our values guide us each and every day. I am delighted to announce that we will add the three further values of responsibility, integrity and compassion.
We will share the same values with all schools across the Orbital Education family from August 2021. All staff, students and parents in the Orbital family of schools are proud to be united under these five shared values.
We finished the academic year with three Appreciation Day celebrations, showing our gratitude to our Students, Teachers and Parents here at BISL. This event series was a wonderful opportunity to recognise and value the support, dedication, kindness and encouragement that we get from everyone in our community. You will see a gallery of photos from these events below.
Before the end of term, we have sent out the welcome letters from the lead teachers of all our classes for next year, as well as the staff profiles of the new incoming teachers to BISL. Our Orientation Day on Friday 20th August will be a chance for you to meet our new teachers, new families and find out more information about the school for the academic year ahead.
In this active PE Block, I had two very enjoyable Enrichment Saturdays with the students as they played dodgeball, capture the flag and other fun team building games, and look forward to being able to offer similar opportunities for our students in the next academic year.
Our Summer School starts this week, and we are delighted by the number of students involved in this two-week adventure this year. We look forward to sharing updates with you on social media.
In the next few weeks, you will receive an email with the link to this year's edition of our digital BISL Yearbook 2020-21, full of wonderful photos and memories for you and our students to look back on and enjoy for many years to come.
Wishing you a safe and relaxing summer holiday.
I am very proud that our school has been awarded Accredited Member (BSO) status by COBIS, the Council of British International Schools.
This means we have been quality assured against a strict set of standards and recognised as offering a high-quality British education. COBIS membership enables our school to access some excellent benefits including CPD and professional development for staff, competitions and events for students and the ability to learn from colleagues based in leading British international schools around the world.
I would like to thank every member of our community for your contributions towards this excellent achievement and a further reflection of the high quality of education that we provide here at the British International School of Ljubljana.
Students, Teacher and Parent Appreciation Day Photos
For Student Appreciation Day, our PTA arranged for some delicious ice creams for our students, and they all received some personal messages from their teachers.
Then, we had our Teacher Appreciation Breakfast, celebrating our amazing teachers and staff here at BISL. The PTA arranged a wonderful breakfast spread for our teachers, while our students prepared heartfelt messages and posters for their teachers to show their appreciation for everything they do.
Our Parent Appreciation Day was held to recognise our wonderfully supportive parents here at BISL, and our students decorated lovely personalised cards to take home for their parents.
Outstanding PTM and PTE Results
I have been delighted to share with you the fantastic results from our recent Progress Test in Maths and Progress Test in English prior to the end of term. I am very proud of the hard work, perseverance and effort by our students, who continue to develop and thrive through inspirational teaching by our amazing staff. Congratulations to each and every one of our students.
It was wonderful to see our students have a fantastic time together during our two Enrichment Saturdays this term. A special thank you to Mr Damjan, Ms Fairchild, Mr Černi and Ms Kukovica for organising the activities.
PE Block Roundup
To celebrate sports, health and wellbeing as part of our PE block this year, our students and the PE Department created a variety of fun and challenging competitions on a weekly basis for everyone to get involved in.
What a great way to finish the academic year, and I hope you stay active and healthy throughout the summer and look forward to celebrating more sports together in the new academic year.
All of our upcoming events are listed on the school website here.
Our school calendar for the 2021-22 academic year is available here.
