The Network of International Christian Schools
Having just returned back to Indonesia from meetings in the U.S. with leaders from the Network of Christian Schools (NICS), I am greatly encouraged and excited about the future of the network. There is a real focus right now on cultivating a collaborative atmosphere between our network schools (there are 12 around the world). This excites me as it gives our teachers and staff access to the wisdom and expertise of many others around the world. This year’s conference focused on well-being for both leaders and each school’s constituents. One of the goals was to continue to think about how we as a school can make well-being part of the DNA of our school. I am incredibly grateful for the staff at BAIS and the care that they show towards one another, our children, and our families. I believe that this is one of our strengths, but it is not something that we are taking for granted. In fact, we continue to have conversations around how we can continue to elevate and cultivate a caring, compassionate environment for all.
Some of you may wonder what other benefits we as a school get from being a part of the network? Some of the key benefits revolve around recruiting and onboarding. NICS screens all candidates (literally thousands in a year) to make sure that they align with our biblical standards and beliefs. They also screen for quality and fit. In addition, this year, NICS has provided BAIS with a subscription to the International School Services which is one of two major recruiting systems for international schools. This will give us access to thousands of more candidates. Secondly, all overseas direct hires attend a pre-field orientation called IMPACT. At IMPACT, teachers and their families are prepared for the challenges of moving overseas and living in a new culture. This time is also spent continuing to make sure that teachers are unified in the mission and vision of our schools. Finally, one other way that NICS supports our schools is by providing all of our teachers, staff and volunteers with Child Safety training. This is a practical way that the network supports us in our endeavors to ensure that our school is a center of safety and well-being for our children. These are just a few of the reasons we are thankful to be a part of the network!

We’re excited to let you know that our Parent-Teacher Conferences:
The elementary team has arranged specific time slots for each family to meet with your child’s teacher. We’ve also tried to be considerate of siblings who are in elementary classes. You’ll find the date and time for your conference in your child’s Friday folder, which is coming home with them today.
For secondary conferences, you can drop by at any time that works best for you to meet with your child’s teacher. There’s no need to worry about pre-assigned slots.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Parent-Teacher Conferences. It’s a great opportunity for us to discuss your child’s progress and answer any questions you may have.
