Preamble

The new Strategic Action Plan for School Development follows on from the first such strategic plan that was intended to cover the
period from 2004 to 2010. As a starting point for the new plan it was agreed that the school should look critically at what had been
achieved from the existing plan and what was still valid and in need of achieving. Thus, there are elements of the old strategic plan
carried over into the new plan.

The format of the plan has also changed slightly, in order that it matches with the Council of International Schools Accreditation
process. The recent CIS Five Year Report produced by the school identified action plans for key areas of the school. These have been
incorporated into the new strategic plan. This will help in the self-study stage of the accreditation process as well as being beneficial to
the visiting team from CIS. There are seven main sections. The information in brackets refers to the relevant section in the Strategic
Action Plan for School Improvement 2004-2010.

    A        Philosophy and Objectives
    B        Curriculum (Focus Area 4: Student Learning and Performance)
    C        Governance and Management (Focus Area 1: Governance and Management and Focus Area 2: Finance)
    D        Staff (Focus Area 3: Human Resource)
    E        Student Support Services
    F        Resources (Focus Area 6: School Facilities)
    G        Student and Community Life (Focus Area 5: School Community, Life and Culture)

In reviewing the old plan, there was an acceptance that it was in some ways over ambitious and that many aspects were not achieved.
There will also be a need to monitor more closely the implementation of the plan to ensure that it is carried out or is amended
regularly.

The updated plan has involved consultation with representatives from all the major sections of the school. This has included teaching
and non-teaching staff, parents, students and Board members. However it is acknowledged that to maintain consistency and to ensure
an overview the Head has been responsible for coordinating the writing of the report and has been responsible for submitting it to the
Board of Governors for final approval.

Vision Statement: Le Bocage International School in 2015

Le Bocage International School (LBIS) will continue to be the preferred international school in Mauritius and a leading international
school in the region. This will be built on continued Council of International Schools accreditation and the drive for self-improvement,
and also a desire from those within the LBIS community to provide a quality international education.

The school will strongly adhere to the core values of excellence of teaching and learning, teamwork, personal commitment, ethical
behaviour, mutual respect and intellectual honesty, intellectual growth and a focus on creating a stimulating learning environment. A
sense of pride, loyalty and commitment to the distinctive mission of the school will be evident throughout the LBIS community.

The point of convergence for all of the strategies and action plans is the prospect that LBIS will prepare all students to think
creatively, reason critically, communicate effectively and learn enthusiastically throughout life. We will transform our students to be
highly successful in the workplace and the world throughout their lives.

The LBIS Strategic Plan aims to balance the desire for a quality teaching and learning environment and infrastructure with the wish to
offer an international education to as wide a range of students as possible.
