Charity Work

Charitable Funds Support The Rebuilding of Three Schools in Nepal

We are pleased to report on the progress of the construction work in Dhading. Work is progressing on schedule and it is not long until the students will be back in permanent classrooms.

BISS Lions Swim

BISS Lions Swim Team Excel in Phuket

Even before the BISS Lions swim team changed into their swimming gear for the FOBISIA Games held last week in Phuket, practice made perfect when they arrived at the venue during a tropical rainstorm which meant shoes had to be taken off for everyone to march through the flood. This on top of delayed flights meant the team pretty much went to bed straight away to be fresh and active for the next day.
