Alumnus visit- Evan Planchon
It was a delight to welcome yet another of our alumni visiting the campus this week, supporting our sporting events and catching up with some of the staff who taught him.
Like any family, we enjoy the welcome home and the opportunity to catch up with our students when they are able to return and to hear about their life and adventures beyond BIS.
Thanks for the FB post Evan...

BIS Gymnastics Invitational
BIS held their 5th annual Gymnastics competition on Wednesday, with nearly 60 Primary and Secondary children from BIS, BVIS and ISHCMC competing for the accolade of aesthetic gymnasts of the area.
We had terrific tumbling, fantastic floor work and victorious vaulting from all of our competing girls and boys, who have been training hard with the GymKraft coaches since January for this event. BIS finished in 2nd place behind ISHCMC in both age groups, but did win individual awards for the following students:
Myra U11 Level 1 2nd Place
Anais U11 Level 3 2nd Place
Velvet U19 Level 4 1st Place
The gymnasts will continue to train hard for the rest of the year. If you would like your child to compete next year, please make sure to sign up for the GymKraft paid ECA sessions in September so that BIS can go one better next year.
