‘Christmas Wonderland’ Student Fair - Tuesday 15th December
This year the PTG was excitedly looking forward to welcoming BIS families to the annual PTG Christmas BISzaar and one of the areas of the BISzaar that has been growing since it began just a few years ago are the students’ Community and Enterprise stalls.
The students, who are involved in a wide variety of community clubs at the Secondary Campus enthusiastically take up this opportunity to spread awareness and raise funds for their chosen Community Partner through posters, sale items, bake sales and activities.
This year for the Christmas BISzaar we had more than 20 student Community and Enterprise stalls signed-up to participate and so the PTG were very happy to hear that these students will be able to hold their stalls and share community awareness through the student Christmas Wonderland on the last day of school.
We are delighted to showcase our students’ stalls, with a wide range of products that will benefit our community partners. These students will also have a physical stall at the Christmas Wonderland on Tuesday to spread their message. All funds raised go to support our community partnerships.
Perhaps you might find some treats in this online marketplace, created with the help of Mr Colin Astbury, one of our ICT Teachers, that will make the perfect Christmas gifts and encourage your children to visit the community stalls at the Christmas Wonderland on Tuesday.
Tet Gift Box Collection 2020
The Year of the Buffalo will be welcomed on the 12th February 2021, heralding one of the most significant holiday celebrations in Vietnam; the Vietnamese Lunar New Year!
The characteristics symbolised by the Buffalo/Ox are those of leadership, determination, hard work and dependability; all of which aptly reflected by the trait of “perseverance” in our school Aide Memoir and for which we strive. Likewise at that time, as we reflect on the past year and look with optimism to the future, we will continue to strive to act with integrity, to treat one another with respect and to care for our community.
The Tet Gift Box Collection 2020 continues here at Secondary and there will be a Tet Gift Box stall at the Christmas Wonderland event on Tuesday for any students who would still like to join in this opportunity to share this lovely Vietnamese custom with our Community Partners.
