This week we welcomed Janice Short, new appointed Principal at BIC, Sant Agustí. Accompanied by the Regional Head of Schools, Karl Wilkinson. Mrs Short was able to meet with all staff, parents and took time to visit many of the classrooms and engage with our students. She thoroughly enjoyed her time at the school and the school would like thank all staff, parents and students for making her feel so welcome. We kindly invite you to read our latest Press Release: Janice Short - New appointed Principal of BIC, Sant Agustí
Thank you all for your patience in the current difficult times. We have been focusing on preparing for e-learning to take over in the event of school closure. Working with the staff and students in order to facilitate this we are confident that we will be able to provide an excellent level of online learning.
We have been preparing our Online Learning procedures for such a situation. All our staff will be sending daily lessons via CANVAS, our e-learning platform, and are fully committed to ensuring that you and the students can access learning, support and advice during the school day. Please know that even if the school is not physically open after tomorrow, myself and staff will be reachable daily via email and myself via phone.
With best wishes and hopes to see you all back at BIC again very soon.
All the best,
Ms Millar and the BIC Team
