We are delighted to be able to announce that we will be presenting an exhibition on 14 March at Eurovea which will showcase the amazing work done by our students on Children’s Rights and their Make It Right project to improve the experience of children on the Orthopedic ward at the Children’s University Hospital Kramare. More details of this unique and exciting event will follow over the coming weeks. As part of this exhibition we will be screening a film which is being produced by 3 of our IB students (Laura, Alicia and Zuzana) on the work carried out on the Orthopedic ward. These three students have been working closely with staff at Joj TV to learn the skills required to put together good interviews and we are looking forward to sharing their work with you. We would like to thank the staff at both Joj TV and Kramare for helping our students with their work. These three students have also set up a Facebook page for their project which can be found on https://www.facebook.com/kramare.project?fref=ts
Friday 13th February will see children from both Primary and Secondary take part in our fund raising Sponsored Run. We are expecting to be able to welcome runners from the medical staff at Kramare and also from the US Marines to help motivate and encourage our young runners. We anticipate currently over 200 of our students from Year 1 right up to IB will be running. I am sure you join with us in wishing them every success as they aim to boost our fundraising! Thank you to all friends, family and teachers who have dug deep to sponsor our runners.
Secondary students are able to purchase our unique Global Classroom t-shirts every Wednesday-Friday in school for the bargain price of 10 euro. All profits generated go towards our Kramare project. They are allowed to wear these t-shirts every Friday for the rest of the school year instead of the normal shirt and tie.
Friday 13th also sees our Into The Night event taking place from 8pm-8am. This event has been organised by three of our IB students as part of their Diploma ‘CAS’ requirements and they are donating all money raised from the event to our Kramare project. Thanks to these students for their hard work and for the support given to them by Mr. Evans, Ms. Bea, Ms. Mably, Mr. Warmington and Mr. Pugh who will be staffing the sleepover.
Secondary students will be involved in a Day of Rights after half term, with each year group being involved in a carefully planned day of events to enhance their understanding of the Rights of the Child and the work of organisations such as the UN in supporting Children’s Rights.

The Global Classroom continues to inspire students not just to think locally, but internationally too. Later this month a group of 11 students from Years 9 & 12 will travel to Tanzania to continue the pioneering work begun last year. The camp at Arusha has the opportunity to host students from all 31 Nord Anglia schools, and we know that our students will enjoy the opportunity to continue working to improve the local primary school and orphanage with which we are partnered. They will be accompanied on this trip by Ms. Williams and Mr. Darwell of our Geography department
You will be able to follow along with #TeamTanzania on their 7 day trip via our Twitter account @BISB_Global
Round Two of the Debate League is now closed and we look forward to sharing the results with you soon.
Creative Writing 2015
The 2015 Creative Writing Competition (with parallel Illustration competition) launched at the beginning of January. Year 9C students worked this week with Year 3 classes to help them prepare their own creative writing pieces. This was a great experience for Year 9 who thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with younger children. There were many requests to repeat the activity from them, and we would like to pass our thanks onto Ms. Cook, Mr. Thomson and Mr. Williamson for welcoming Year 9 into their classes. Pictures from the activities were live Tweeted at the time (Tuesday Period 1) and can be found on our @BISB_Global Twitter feed. Remember, you do not have to register on Twitter to view our feed!
The annual Open Mic competition for our singers and musicians has also opened. Students can upload a recording of their performance to the Global Classroom. Winning entries will be available in a compilation album later this year. You can listen to last year’s winners on the Global Classroom. Closing date is April 17th.
