DECEMBER DASH 2021!
Ho Ho Ho Boys and Girls!
The Primary PE Department invites all students, parents and teachers to take part in the DECEMBER DASH. For the first 12 days of Christmas, we would like you ALL to get up and get active participating in daily events building a stronger, healthier and more festive community together!
All BIS students, parents and teachers from F1 – Year 6 can take part. This is an optional activity, but we would REALLY encourage you all to participate to help increase your current health and well-being.
As a PE Team, we’ve set a GOAL to achieve a combined total score of 200,000 minutes of physical activity as a community. This is the number we have chosen, as it represents the average number of lights on the big Christmas trees planted in central squares of towns and cities across the world, as done by many of our home countries.
Who can gain the most minutes of action in your class?... in your year group … in the school … in your family?
Also, there will be a page here for you to submit your photos of you in action - solo, with friends and family, or even with your pets!
So, starting from the 1st December it’s all Go Go Go Ho Ho Ho! , we look forward to sharing with you our passion for the benefits of Physical Activity, and the wondrous joy of the Christmas spirit!

Regards, your Primary PE Team

PTG 2021 - 2022
We celebrated Teachers’ Day by organizing a potluck lunch for all the teachers in EY and JC campuses. A task that looked huge initially, but the parents' support made this event very successful.
A huge thank you to all the parents who participated in this event either by volunteering or by sending delicious food to be enjoyed by the school community. The volunteering team at both the campuses were busy from 9 am-11 am collecting and displaying the food. It was a treat to watch the teachers walking into the gym surprised. They were overwhelmed with the food and the love we showered on them. The expressions on the teachers while enjoying the food was priceless.
Thank you, teachers, for being so amazing, caring, positive, supportive and wonderful people. You are special to your students hence when they got an opportunity to showcase the love through video or postcards, our PTG inbox was filled with these videos.
A special thanks to PTG core team Pamela, Anchal, Jana and Thomas for giving their 100%. Pamela took on a huge responsibility of making a video montage for the teachers. She spent more than 7 hours editing the video.
I would like to thank the volunteers- EY- Eric, Petra, Hannah, Mercia, Vedra, Shruthi, Packialakshimi, Rohni, Taehyun, and Hayden. In JC- Suvidha, Naoko Herrmann, Anupam Khosla, Divya Chinnasamy, Anh Duong, Phillip West, Pham Kim Duyen, To My Lan, Ganga, and Eunyoun Son. Taehyun created 20 centerpieces at both campuses. Anupam created the design for the coffee mugs.
Thank you everyone for helping us to run this event successfully. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us on email@example.com.
