"A while ago, we shared our preparations for Geometry Week at Brillantmont International School. It's in full swing and the students continue to be engaged in interesting and exciting new ways of connecting maths to the world around us. All this week students at Brillantmont are improving their geometry skills and getting to grips with abstract concepts. Every year our mathematics department joins forces with a different department and asks students to consider the links between subjects. This year we are connecting the dots between mathematics and art. Students have been learning about geometry and creating designs using abstract compositions and impossible shapes.Read More
We're always thinking cross-curricular at Brillantmont and trying to find ways to engage the students in Maths by thinking creatively. We are currently in the throes of the "Splat competition", which is a regular annual event for which students can win a prize by completing as much of the booklet as possible.

Brillantmont teachers are always using different resources in order to fully engage and stimulate their students. In the Maths Department, some classes are signed up to the online iMaths and my iMaths platform. Through a variety of activities, games and quizzes, students can extend and reinforce their maths skills, consolidating their in-class knowledge. Their teachers can even set and mark homework through it. Students receive clearly explained feedback on their results, helping them and the teacher evaluate areas of strength and areas which need further work.
Cooking up a cultural feast!
This week saw our first international evening of the new school year. What better way to learn about a country's culture than through its food! At BM international evenings pave the school year and our students are always very excited and proud to be able to show-case their country to others who might know very little about it. They work together with our chef and our kitchen team to cook delicious food for over 100 people and put a lot of thought and energy into the little details.Read More
