    This semester, five of our wonderful MYP students have had the invaluable opportunity to write book reviews for the children’s literature section of “The Guardian” newspaper. The UK team sent us a collection of titles they wanted reviewed by children aged 11-14 and our budding writers did just that. The name of our book group is “Haveaninkaboutit” (which is so genius it makes me wish that I came up with it…!) “The Guardian” team were VERY impressed with the quality of our student’s […]

    The British International School of New York was delighted to be involved in the first USA Red Nose Day. All our pupils appeared in red clothes, proudly sporting their red noses. The theme of “red” was interpreted by our chef who produced a fantastic “red lunch”. We are rightly proud of Red Nose Day USA and we look forward to even more fun next year!

    Welcome to New York, 1958: it’s a “rock around the clock” type of place, where romance and jovial blues pulse through the streets. Think Hitchcock, space exploration, all-night diners; Cadillac convertibles, poodle skirts, and of course, that great animal that is Rock ‘n Roll. It’s here that we meet hip-thrusting, toe tapping, teen heart-throb, Conrad Birdie (think Harry Styles of the 1950s) who has been drafted into the army to the despair of his many adoring fanatical and borderline neurotic […]

With five successful rounds, the students tried out their debate chops amongst the best of the best in the East Coast. Students thoughtfully debated the merits of holding the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev trial in Boston, approving the […]

    English teachers love an analogy and none more so than any book related one.

Well, in true BISNY style, the idea of life as a book truly came to town on March 2nd 2015.   For that week, […]
