World Water Day

The United Nations General Assembly designated March 22nd as World Water Day in 1993 to recognise the importance of water as a basic necessity of life and the need to mange this precious resource wisely. On this day, Ryan's Well promotes awareness for water,  think of the impact of not having access to clean water and of the need to conserve and protect our freshwater supplies.


In 2014, during Water Week, the CAS Team and CAS students invited students across all subjects to produce work related to the theme of WATER. The aim was to help increase awareness about the need for access to safe water for everyone.

A Bake Sale and Non-Uniform Day were also held to raise funds for the Ryan’s Well Foundation to support their new School Challenge project - to help bring water and sanitation facilities to schools without these very basic needs - so it really does change their lives.

TOK Guest Lecturer - Pablo Casacuberta

The renowned artist Pablo Casacuberta visited TBS on Thursday, March 12 to give a lecture titled "Apuntes para una historia natural del arte".  He addressed all IB students and challenged conventional thinking about why people do art.  He focused on insights provided by recent research in neuroscience to argue that art is a biological imperative that has allowed our evolution as a species.  It was an interesting and thought-provoking event.

The Hague 2015

A group of students from The British Schools braced themselves for some challenging debates, and the cold January weather of the northern hemisphere, as they travelled to the Netherlands in a joint delegation with students from Stella Maris to participate in the THIMUN 2015 Conference.  


THIMUN - The Hague International Model United Nations

The THIMUN Conference is a five-day simulation of the United Nations for secondary school students, which takes place at the end of January each year in the World Forum Convention Center in The Hague.

Campamento Matemáticas - Febrero 2015

El pasado jueves 5 de Febrero alumnos de Maths Olympics (Delfina Collazo, Nicolás Collazo, Marcelo Perez, Julieta Regules y Alejandro Seré) concurrieron al Campamento Matemático (acompañados de la Prof. Natalia Colino) realizado en el Centro Educativo Los Pinos. Allí participaron de seminarios sobre estrategias de resolución de problemas a cargo de ex olímpicos y profesionales del área científica, lo que forma parte de su entrenamiento para las próximas Olimpíadas de Matemática nacionales e internacionales. Esta experiencia ha sido enriquecedora tanto a nivel académico, como a nivel personal y social.

Beyond the data - influencing international student decision making

“The five most important factors for international students when considering study abroad are consistent regardless of where they intend to study. These five factors in order of importance are: quality of education (compared to their home country), international recognition of qualifications, the country’s attitude to international students, safety, and ease of getting a visa.

The four least important factors for international students when considering study abroad are also consistent regardless of where they intend to study. The four least important factors are: distance from home country, ability to get permanent residency in the destination country after study, exposure to culture or life in the destination country, better job prospects in the destination country.”

Hobsons recently released a new report called Beyond the data: Influencing international student decision making. The report is based on Hobsons’ International Student Survey and provides important insights into how international students decide where they will go for study abroad.
