On Monday 20th May the twenty four BIS students who had completed the Bronze and Silver levels of the Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award (iDEA) were presented with their certificates by HRH Crown Prince Alexander Karadjordjevic at the White Palace.
Special congratulations go to several of these students who have managed to achieve both the Bronze and the Silver level award.
The Ceremony represented one of the peak events in the life of our school community this year. It also reflected the true educational ethos of BIS, giving our students an opportunity to rejoice in their accomplishments.
We are most thankful to HRH Crown Prince Alexander and HRH Crown Princess Katherine for their hospitality. We are also thankful to the Ambassadors and First Secretaries of various countries posted to Serbia, as well as to a number guests who attended the Ceremony.
The evening began with a welcome speech from HRH Crown Prince Alexander. After that, Mr Howie introduced the audience to the concept of iDEA award programme and the tasks our students needed to complete in order to achieve their Bronze and Silver awards. The students were then presented with their award certificate by HRH Crown Prince Alexander and the BIS Principal Ms Keserovic. Ms Keserovic closed the formal part of the evening by thanking their Royal Highnesses and the guests and by congratulating the students on their success.
