BST plays a pivotal role for our families: it’s where we send our children to learn to think critically about the world around them and themselves, socialise, discover their interests, passions and hobbies, and be active. It’s where we leave them in the capable hands of their teachers, tutors, and the school’s administration to allow and encourage them to thrive and grow.

This is why we, as parents, take active initiative in shaping and driving the school, not just in terms of its curriculum, but also the services and support it provides to us and our children. It is also why we play an essential role in the school to facilitate parents to come together, and to work together to support and engage with the school, the wider community, and each other.
