As the fourth year supporting Heart to Heart, the Lower School has successfully raised over a total of RMB503,000 to sponsor the surgical needs of 23 children with CHD.

Throughout each year, SCIS students have the unique opportunity to be involved in many different community projects to develop into responsible global citizens.

As the chill of winter draws to a close, so too does a tumultuous yet exciting university application cycle for BISS’ Year 13 cohort.

The Year 13 students have had to balance the business and rigors of their IB Diploma Programme commitments with all the trying components of a competitive university application: extra study sessions for entrance exams; critical self-reflection and thinking sessions for essays, CVs and interviews; and extensive research sessions for composing a university list that fits their character and ambitions.
