Beaconhouse International Student Convention (BISC)
The first Beaconhouse International Student Convention (BISC) was held in Bangkok, Thailand in January 2016, followed by BISC 2017, held in January in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A co-curricular and cultural sports event, BISC 2017 saw more than 160 boys and girls from Beaconhouse schools in Oman, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Pakistan.
BISC events aim to bring the worldwide network of Beaconhouse schools together to create a global community of students and teachers who can learn from one another while representing Beaconhouse as an international leader in education.
Every year, many Beaconhouse students from across the network travel internationally to engage with peers in various conferences, competitions and workshops. In 2016, over 350 students travelled abroad to various countries for a number of events. There were three trips to the NASA Headquarters in Florida, USA, one trip to Europe and one to China.
