    Congratulations to all students from grade 6 to 12 who were involved – on and off the stage – in last night’s performance of “Annie”. It was a truly fantastic show, with numerous special moments, very skilfully choreographed group performances and stunning solos. The audience could see, hear and feel how much passion and preparation had gone into this performance. As one parent mentioned after the show: “It is things like this that really make BBIS special. You should all be very proud.”

While it is always sad to farewell the students, it is also exciting as I contemplate the potential of each person as he or she moves on to the next stage of life, however that may play out.
