Message From the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The principal Dr. W.A. Davis

This year, the fourteenth year in the life of Bright Future School has been one of many successes for our children and our school. 

The long awaited construction of the school’s own building is underway and making good progress. We hope to move to our own facility by 2014/2015. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank our parents on this news, especially those parents who have been encouraging BFS to build its own school premises for many years now. Thank you for your support and congratulations! We are finally on the way.

Teacher turnover this year, though still present, has been minimized and for this, our teachers need to be appreciated for their dedication.

This past year, due to financial stress, we were hard-pressed to increase our fees midway through the academic year. Though this practice was unheard of at BFS and put our parents through unexpected economic pressure, it was necessary to sustain the school. First, I would like to thank our Parent Committee members for their time and hard work to help us reach a fee increment that could help the school with minimum strain on parents. I also would like to thank all parents and guardians for their cooperation and understanding in making the fee increment possible and helping the school through hard times. Thank you for your continued support.

There will be no increment in the fees for next year.

Our children have been preparing for national exams throughout the year with additional worksheets and practice papers for afterschool study time as well as for their Saturday classes. As always we are expecting high results from all our grade 8, 10 and 12 students.

Our students were extremely busy this year with many activities outside of their academics. Question/Answer competitions, science fair, educational excursions, extracurricular clubs, fun days, sport competitions (BFS is the table tennis champion this year) and cultural exchange were some of the activities that our children had the opportunity to be involved in during 2012/2013. The cultural exchange is currently preparing to take its second group of students to the USA around December 2013.

Our plans for next year include the following

  • We have acquired a spacious, new compound behind the current primary campus which will serve as our elementary section while the Kindergarten will move to the current elementary campus(1-4).
  • We plan to open an international division for our grade 11 and 12 sections to prepare them for SATs and IGCSE exams. These classes will be optional for parents
  • Providing separate Special Ed classes especially for our primary students in light of the academic weakness we encountered with some students this year.
  • Continue the construction of our school building.
  • Providing Day Care services for children too young for regular kindergarten.
  • Using a parent-teacher contact diary kept with students on a daily basis.
  • Extending our high school stricter uniform policy towards the primary sections.

I thank you in advance, parents, for the help and support you render us to reach the above goals.

I look forward to yet another successful year for our children, for you and for our school.
Thank you for being part of the Bright Future School family.

Dr. W. A. Davis
