Welcome from the Vice President

Welcome to the BIBS learning community!Vice President-Mike Weeks

At BIBS and the Beanstalk Kindergartens, we are more than just a school. We are a learning community which strives to place students at the center of all that we do. We aspire to create environments where students can come to school with an enthusiasm to learn, while being fostered and supported by thoughtful and committed teachers.

It is a delight to see our students speaking, reading and writing in the two languages of the school, English and Chinese. As they progress through the lower to upper Elementary School, then on to Middle and High School, we aim to enable children to develop as independent learners. We provide an environment where they learn to be passionate about discovery and can increasingly take responsibility for their own education as they inquire, reflect and engage in action.

The BIBS educational experience aims to develop children and young people to become global citizens, those who care for the world in which they live, through practical actions and a range of service activities. We believe each student has his or her own unique abilities and talents. We know it is important to foster and promote all students’ natural love of learning, inquiry, problem solving, communication, collaboration and creativity, in order to become leaders and compassionate individuals, who possess resilient ethical values.

During their time at BIBS, students develop skills in thinking, communication, social, self-management and research, under the careful guidance of our teachers. We appreciate the challenges and opportunities of growing up in a global, rapidly changing world – one which calls on us to incorporate 21st century technologies, as we work toward a 1:1 IT learning environment.

Our philosophy is that the right school environment contributes to a conducive learning atmosphere. Thus, we continually strive to enhance our facilities and learning spaces. As a community, we welcome everyone to become an active partner in this adventurous learning journey that our children and young people are undertaking.

Enjoy watching your children grow and learn,

Mike Weeks,
Vice President
