An idea that came from our students after our 'Refugee Awareness Day' back in November, will culminate in a Fun Day for all on Saturday. After being part of a 'Refugee simulation' our students were talking about what they could do for the refugee children .....and one of the students said 'Can't we just have some fun together?'
Art is not what you see but what you make others see (Edgar Degas). A popular IB Diploma Programme course at BBIS is visual arts, one of the Group 6 subjects. By its very nature as a discipline, visual arts demands creativity along with discipline and commitment to a lot of out-of-ours time to produce all that is necessary in a course which combines theory with a significant amount of practice.
In order to celebrate our students’ individual CAS experiences, each student will be required to present an overview of what has been learned from his / her involvement in the various chosen CAS experiences, with particular reference to the Seven Learning Outcomes of CAS and the IB Learner Profile.
This morning in our P.H.S.E information morning,our students coached parents in using a strategy to solve conflict. This 'Peace Bridge' strategy is used by our trained team of Student Peacemakers, to solve conflicts and disputes on the playground. This is just one example of Personal, Social and Health education, which is a critical part of everything we do at school.
This week, Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet was performed at the Heizhaus by our grade 8 students. The tale of the two star-crossed lovers was a real treat, and the audience rewarded the many special moments during the performance with lots of applause.
