On behalf of the Parents’ and Teachers’ Association (PTA), congratulations on the first week of school completed and half of the second! We hope your children have had a wonderful start to their school year!
As we continue to dive into school, it is with great pleasure that this letter announces the beginning preparations for the return of the exceptional International Day Event on Friday 13th October. So many students within the BSB community have grown to love the event over the years, and new students that have been to International Days at other schools have found that same adoration of an event that truly celebrates our diverse community.
As a reminder, the objective of our International Day is for our children to leave our event with a deeper understanding of their classmates’ cultures. The students will be given an ‘International Day Passport’ and will be gifted with stamps on their passport from each country that they visit along with stamps as prizes for answering trivia questions about each country. This is an exceptional event for our students dependent upon our parent volunteers.
To begin preparations for our students, we will seek to organize country groups.
a) County Lead - If you are interested in leading the group for your country, we are more than excited for you to contact us.
b) For those interested in volunteering at the event or contributing to the booths, we look forward to having your input. If your country has an individual that has agreed to organize the booth, that individual will contact you. If your country does not, the PTA will contact you.
Please email PTA@britishschool.org.cn by Tuesday 19th September with the following information:
