Welcome from the Director

 


It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Al-Bayan Bilingual School (BBS) for the 2022-2023 academic year.  Whether you are a prospective or new family, or perhaps you have been with us for many years, I trust that you will find BBS to be an inclusive and supportive learning community.  
 
As the leading bilingual school in Kuwait, we have and long and proud tradition of achieving outstanding outcomes for our students who go on to become leaders in Kuwait and throughout the world.
 
As I begin my 6th year at BBS, I am honored to serve this wonderful school community as its Director.  Having started my career over 20 years ago in a remote school in outback Australia, I have enjoyed living and working in a range of communities and schools across Australia, China and the Middle East.  As with most people who have a passion for learning and education, I consider myself a lifelong learner, and have been fortunate to earn undergraduate degrees in both Applied Science and Education, as well as a postgraduate degree in Business Administration.  My family and I highly value the opportunities a comprehensive education can offer, and my focus is to ensure that every single child at BBS is afforded every opportunity to be their best and to achieve at the highest levels.
 
We have an amazing staff throughout BBS.  From Central Office, to our Leadership Team, to our teachers and support staff, we are all committed to providing an amazing educational experience for our students.
 
Again, welcome to BBS, and please do not hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance in any way.
 
Warm regards,
 
 
 
Kevin Fullbrook 
Director
 

 

 

I welcome you at Al-Bayan Bilingual School and wish you a flourishing school year. My name is Paul Said, and I am privileged to assist you in my capacity of Deputy Director.
 
Having served as a ‘Youth Talks’ teacher and Middle School Principal within a school network in Beirut-Lebanon as well as a scouts’ leader, I believe that every child is gifted in his/her own way and I appreciate the role of school in developing students’ potential and talents for a meaningful and impactful life. I am inspired by our school’s mission and ethos and feel honored to join the Director, Mr. Kevin Fullbrook and BBS educators & staff, in guaranteeing a student-centered educational experience, while maintaining a safe, empowering, intercultural, compassionate and engaging learning environment.
 
The coronavirus pandemic has shaken not only the educational system, but also the entire humanity. Amidst these challenging times, we have all grasped new learning opportunities; we have been geared up with faith, patience, social responsibility, and self-regulation abilities. Hence, after an extended phase of exclusive online learning, we are thrilled to greet you on-campus and look forward to unfolding collaboratively the new reality that is of post-covid education.
 
BBS teachers and staff are educators from the heart, and I assure you that we are all committed to support you throughout your educational journey.
Warmest welcome,

 

Paul Said
Deputy Director
