My name is Kevin Fullbrook and I am the Middle School Principal. I feel incredibly lucky to be given the opportunity to work with some amazing staff at BBS who work very hard each and every day to get the best out of their students.
I am originally from Brisbane, Australia, where I taught in a range of schools from a small, remote P-12 school of 300 students, to a large metropolitan high school of over 2500 students. My main teaching disciplines are Math and PE, and I have served in roles such as Math HOD, Deputy Principal and Principal. Last year I was the Head of Secondary for a bilingual school in Beijing before joining BBS for the start of this academic year.
One thing that has become very clear to me over my years in education is the collective power of a group of people committed to achieving an outcome. Typically, educators are an inspiring, dedicated, and passionate group of people who are in the profession because they love working with children and helping them achieve their best. This is certainly why I got into the profession in the first place, and why I love my job.
What really excites me as we navigate our way through some changes in the Middle School is that as a group of educators we take collective responsibility for the success of all students in the Middle School, not just the ones we teach. That we have a responsibility to share, collaborate, and support all of our colleagues, not just the ones in our department or grade level. When each and every staff member takes collective responsibility for student success right across the school, great things can happen.
I am excited by the work that lays ahead of us as we look to diversify our curriculum offerings for students with a focus on developing 21st century skills, student leadership, and development of the whole child. With subjects like Robotics, Coding, 3D Printing, STEAM, Entrepreneurship, Leadership Academy, and more, our students will get a head start on their journey to becoming the next generation of leaders in Kuwait.
I am delighted to be a part of the journey!
