Teachers Day - Friday, November 22nd
We got an amazing response from the school community to send in their favourite dishes to be shared with the teachers and staff at BIS Secondary. The teachers undoubtedly felt loved and cared for all their hard work.
Special thanks to The Caterers for helping out with all the crockery and cutlery. And to all the parents who contributed to making this event such a success.
JR France Group Manufacturers Tour
The tour was a full house and the attendees thoroughly enjoyed the factory tour. Mr. Rostaing himself conducted the tour and also accompanied us to their factory showroom in District 3. People enjoyed learning about leather as well as shopping. A good discount offered by Mr. Rostaing to the shoppers brought a big smile to all.
