Our phase 2/3 children were asked these questions as we introduced the next trip to SOS. It was overwhelming the number of BIS students who wanted to join the trip on Saturday 3rd December. We could only take 29 children with us, and what a great group they were. It is not always easy trying to communicate with others when they do not speak the same language or you are meeting them for the first time, but our students did a great job. There were about 30 children from SOS Village excitedly waiting for us to arrive. We quickly split into teams and started a game of t-ball with Mr Wild and Mr Adams; some of the children preferred other games so they moved to the side and created their own fun, with a parachute, skipping ropes, and a variety of toys and games that we also brought along for them to enjoy. It was lovely to see children of different ages, different nationalities and different backgrounds, all playing together. This trip was another lovely opportunity for BIS students to reach out to others beyond their school gates, and show their true caring and respectful natures. Well done everyone who attended.
I would like to extend a big thank you to Ms Elliot for helping to organise the event, also to the parents who came along to join in the fun and assist our teachers. We could not have coped with the crowds of children without your support. Watch out for more information about our next meeting with SOS.
