Leadership is not an extracurricular activity, it is a skill nourished in every aspect of school life.

"Only when we push ourselves to empathize, to learn and to be curious, can we begin each of our journeys towards global companionship and complete international understanding." 

Recipient of the International Understanding Award, Class of 2020, (full speech)

Leadership is not simply an innate quality or gift reserved for only the most accomplished, nor is it reserved for the most senior. We discover successful leaders across all ages and areas of our school. Our programmes seek to nourish leadership qualities in all our students. They nurture this potential through a student-centred and student-led experiential model, guided through mentorship, education, experience, and reflection.

From simple opportunities in the classroom through to a range of extracurricular activities, BIS students choose and make decisions to flourish. Those who crave further challenge engage in a range of additional activities.

These include: Primary and Secondary School Student Councils, House Captains, TEDx, Model United Nations, Student Ambassadors, as well as ample opportunities through community service projects.
