The British International School of Jeddah is a private community school licensed by the Ministry of Education. We are a not for profit organisation governed by a Board of Trustees.

Our school caters for children from years K-13 and has in excess of 1500 students from over 60 countries. We are accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS)  and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).  Additionally we are authorised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) and are a centre for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and also a member school of British Schools in the Middle East (BSME).

 

 

We are all living in unprecedented times. We do like to have a lot of control over how things happen. I am sure that some of you realise that for the British, and their obsession with timing, these times are very unnerving.

 At BISJ we are striving to keep the high quality of education that we are all used to. We are thankful for the online programmes that allow us to 'meet' the students and classes 'face to face'. We are used to hearing the mention of one of the four R's, Resilience, and during this time it has been very encouraging to know that wherever our students and teachers are, the persistent effort for excellence continues.

While school is open, our VLE started the day after we were told not to admit students, we do not know how long the school buildings will be closed. We are working on being ready and to comply with any regulations that are needed. There are many returning and new staff members overseas, and this is an area which we are working on. We are talking with the authorities, to try and make sure any quarantine period is over, that any danger of transmission has passed when the go-ahead to re-open the buildings is given.

When we do open, there will be certain guidelines that we will all have to follow. The aim is to reduce the chances of infection, we know this cannot be zero, but we will continue to take measures to minimise any risk.

In the meantime, it is important to carry on the curriculum as closely as we are able. To look forward to the day when we shall be back in the classroom. I know from the feedback I am getting that a lot of learning is going on, a lot of work is being put into preparing and delivering work by teachers, and a lot of individual work is being carried out by students. Parents are also having to take on an increased role.

Our strong Conti spirit is what will carry us through. This period of difficulty will make us stronger, and when we emerge, we will value the sense of community even more.

Please stay safe, eat well, exercise and sleep well.

Ian Williams

Director
