As an international school, welcoming students to BMS is a matter close to our hearts. For many of our new students, the first day at school is also associated with settling into a new country, a new culture, and a new social circle.
Our principals, student support staff, as well as our faculty take the time to support students with their transition and full integration into the BMS community. We want to ensure that students feel fully equipped and confident in starting their academic journey at BMS. Our goal is to build personal relationships as quickly as possible, so that students can build trust in us as an institution and in members of our staff.
New BMS Families are supported in a step-by-step process guiding by our dedicated team in admissions. Once students are ready to begin their first day of school at BMS, our team from the ELC, the Primary School and the Secondary School are engaged in the onboarding process. Our principals and the academic and student support staff are ready to welcome incoming students and become their trusted partner for the transition process.
- New students are introduced to school life at BMS by a "buddy student". All students receive a Welcome Package on the first day of school with all the information and material they need for a successful start at BMS.
- The parent representatives of each class, who are elected at the beginning of the year, help to coordinate school-related events for students to participate in workshops and events. They also help to organize welcome events for new students and families in their class and offer helpful support for the transition period.
- Our parent community MET@BMS organizes regular social meet-ups for current BMS Families as well as new members of our community throughout the year.
