This week at the BIBS Shunyi Campus we have leapt into Spring with refreshed vigour;
- On Monday the ES staff had their weekly get together. The ES PE teacher talked about the upcoming Sports Day on April 20th before our PYP Coordinator reported back from the IB Global Conference in Singapore on the enhanced PYP, which will take effect from the beginning of the new academic year. The new approach has all to do with ‘Agency’. All the stakeholders on the school community must embrace the concept of taking ownership of their own learning. Or becoming agents of their own learning through making their own choices, researching and acquiring the skills necessary to become independent life long learners, sharing this learning within a community of learners through mutual respect for all, etc.
- On Wednesday after school the Exhibition team got together with the mentors to discuss recent developments and reflect on the process thus far. It was clear that there had been considerable process and it was also noted that the role of the mentor had had a great impact on the progression and the lives of the students. There were expressions of gratitude to all the mentors for their wonderful efforts.
- Also on Wednesday the Grade Five team held a parent’s evening to convey the information about the Xian trip in May. This trip will involve visiting another school to see their exhibition and also the Terracotta Warriors as part of their new unit of inquiry. The students and parents were really excited about this upcoming event and appreciated the efforts of all the students and staff involved.
Upcoming dates to note;
April 20th is our Sports Day.
April 24th Parent Coffee/tea morning. This will be a presentation in Chinese about the PYP at BIBS ES Shunyi.
April 25th and 26th will be our Exhibition days.
April 30th to May 4th will be a school holiday.
The BIBS Shunyi Campus Elementary School team.
Before the break BIBS students participated in inter house competitions for football, basketball, dodgeball, handball and swimming. These results along with sports day events were added together to see which team would lift the trophy for the BIBS Olympics Overall Winner 2018; Fire, Wind, Earth, or Water? This year there was also the chance to win the best sportsmanship trophy.
Grade 11 and 12 students did a great job helping out at the stations along with the teachers supervising. A big thank you to the PTA who kindly supplied ice cream which was much appreciated by all after several gripping tug of war battles.

Our under 19’s football team played against Keystone this Wednesday. The scoreline was 12-1 in favor of our school. We fielded a mixed team with both boys and girls playing together against a full boys team from Keystone. This is a full testament to the sense of community we have at the school and the team put in an epic performance. First goals were scored for the school by Sherya and Annalise and strong performance from Junior and Heydar. All the students performed exceptionally well and we congratulate them on this big win. Next week we have another game against another school and we hope to continue our winning form.
Next week we will be having our Musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Performances will start at 7pm on both Thursday and Friday and we encourage our whole community to buy tickets from the Drama department and support the event. These musicals are a product of months of hard work from the students and we hope our community can come and celebrate this with us.
THE ANIMATION SENSATION
This year’s annual performing arts show is called The Animation Sensation. It will be a wonderful show that every student in the school is involved in performing either a song, dance or drama. It will take place on Friday, April 27 at 10:00am in the lower level theatre of the Century Theatre in Liangmaqiao. This year we will be selling very reasonably priced tickets for all those attending the show that can be purchased from the school office next week. The ticket price for a single ticket will be 30rmb or 50rmb for 2 tickets. Seats are limited so we encourage you to purchase your tickets next week.
In collaboration with the PTA, we are pleased to advise that we are opening our classroom doors to existing parents to visit their child’s classroom during an ‘open classroom’ event. This will take place next Tuesday morning between 9:00am – 12:00pm ONLY. All parents must register upon arrival and before entering classrooms. We ask that any parent attending on the day be mindful that normal, scheduled lessons will be taking place for the teachers and students during this time. Therefore, parents should not interrupt or disrupt the normal flow of the lessons or use the time to hold a casual interview with the teachers or talk with other parents during lesson times. It will be an opportunity to observe and learn more about some of the regular teaching and learning activities that take place each day.
We are still looking for more parents to support the school by requiring their children to attend school in their full school uniform. This is more than just wearing a single item of clothing such as the jacket or just the green shirt but applies to the whole uniform. Please ensure that your child is wearing their school uniform each day.
DEEP LEARNING WEEK
Parents are reminded about the upcoming Deep Learning event taking place on April 23 & 24. As mentioned in the recently provided letter, parents are asked to support this initiative by helping their children gather information, resources and ideas at home. More details are found on the Deep Learning week letter. We hope you enjoy the learning experience together with your child/ren.
ANNUAL TUITION FEES (2018-19)
The deadline for payment of tuition fees has now arrived and parents are asked to make contact with the Admissions staff immediately to make payment of fees. We are thankful to all those parents that have already paid their fees for and demonstrated their support of the educational program on offer here at Dongrun.
LABOUR DAY & PD DAYS
Please be reminded that our school will be closed April 30 – May 1 for Labour Day holiday and the rest of that week (May 2-4) there are no classes due to staff professional development days.
