The BFIS strategic plan kicked off in Fall 2022 with us listening closely to students from Grades 4-12 about what they valued about BFIS, what they felt needed upgrade, so that we could achieve our bold mission, and what their hopes and dreams for the school were. With this rich and wonderful information as a starting point, we then worked with our staff, board, and parents to refine our Vision for Learning 2021-2025. It aims to build upon the fantastic education our students already received and elevate what we do.
We want our students to go out into the world and solve the wicked problems that will define the future of human-kind and the planet. Challenges like economic and political instability, famine, conflict, physical and mental healthcare, inequality, mass migration, and perhaps, the driver or all other and most crucial, climate change. In September 2015, 193 world leaders ratified 17 Global Goals. Achieving Global Goals is the challenge of a new generation of young people.
This is why our strategic Vision for Learning must meet the challenge of ..
…nurturing collaborative individuals connected to the world around them who are empowered to design innovative solutions to complex problems to create a better world.
Over the next three years we will be refining, upgrading and adding to what we do as we action the goals of three Learning Pillars and strengthen four Foundation Stones to ensure thar we can achieve the goals sustainably.
