Piloting new Parking and Bus Departure Arrangements for 2017-18 School Year

Dear Parents,

If you have been to campus recently, you have undoubtedly noticed that the new Greencore Apartment buildings across the street from the school are almost completed. The opening of these apartments this summer means that BIFS needs to crate a new plan and system for safe student transportation during drop off and pick up times. Our buses will not be able to load and unload on the street in front of the school once school resumes in August.

Therefore, we would like to test a new parking and transportation plan on Tuesday, June 6 and Wednesday, June 7 for our after-school student departures at 3:30. (The morning drop off procedure will remain the same). We are including a map to this email to identify the new bus loading and parent driving areas for the after-school time. Please note that the bus loading area will be a “no driving area” of campus from 3:25pm to 3:40pm on these days. Parents are asked to park and or pick up their students in the parking lot under A building (under the ELC Building). Faculty and Staff are asked to park in the C building parking lot (under the cafeteria and secondary school).

Thank you for your cooperation during this piloting phase as we seek to identify the more efficient and safe manner for the loading and unload of students for the next school year.

Kind Regards,
Mr Baker

Grade 9 Film Gala

On Thursday, June 1, 2017, From 5pm to 7pm, ninth grade students showcased six short films. Featuring Korean student, foreign student, and adult actors, the films explored the contemporary human condition in modern Korea. 

Reality is a film about the thin line between fiction and reality and warns us that sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between what is real and what is not. Knot Friends, by contrast, is a film about a test of loyalty and trust among friends. As The Sun Goes Down is a film about a girl who learns too much about her future, and reminds us that knowing what is to come can change your perspective on life. Insight is a film about a boy searching for belonging, suggesting that knowing what everyone else is thinking is lonelier than you would think. Identity is a film about a boy who struggles with his own negative thoughts. It urges us to not take things too personally. And finally, it’s not easy being Different, a film about a boy who is not accepted by society.

The BIFS Film Academy is interdisciplinary, inquiry-based learning at its best: project-based, student-led, and teacher-facilitated, offering practical and conceptual 21st-century skills needed for students to lead at the cutting edge of tomorrow’s world.  The BIFS Film Academy connects teaching in the classroom with action in the community, and is integral to the IB’s vision of teaching creative global citizenship.
