At BIS HCMC we pride ourselves on providing the opportunities to make a positive change upon the people and environments around us. The Community Service department is at the forefront of providing countless opportunities to do so and has an extensive outreach program that was described as ‘exemplary’ during the most recent BSO inspection.
At Primary, the hummingbird stands as our iconic symbol for Community Service. Dating back to the Ancient Aztecs as a symbol of care and empathy, this wonderful creature truly embodies the positive characteristics we look to build through community service. A few weeks ago, our primary students were challenged to design a new hummingbird logo and short story that we could use for BIS HCMC.
We had numerous entries that demonstrated fantastic creativity, passion and thoughtfulness. It was challenging to choose the winners for both contests. The three winning entries were from Erik (F3), Risa (Year 1) and Jacob (Year 2).
