Message from Tracey Thomas - Term 3 2017/18

Dear Parents, 

Welcome to the final newsletter of 2017/18. It’s been a wonderfully busy term, and I cannot help but beam with pride as I reflect upon all the fantastic achievements and accomplishments I have seen this year.

This term, pupils participated in two magnificent performances. The first involved our youngest students who retold the story of the Litter Muncher.  Not only did pupils dazzle their audience with their brilliant acting, singing and dancing, they learnt about and shared a very important message about our responsibility to the environment. 

The second production, Pirates vs Mermaids, was brought to us by our Primary students. This really was a showcase of tremendous performance skills and energy, whilst once again sharing a very important message about tolerance, honesty and integrity. 

Continuing to reflect upon the amazing creativity we have amongst our student body, we held the first ever BSB’s Got Talent. It was excellent to see so many children wanting to be involved presenting a whole range of talents from singing and dancing, to gymnastics and football skills routines. The finalists inspired many and I cannot wait to see what next year’s show might bring. 

Science was magnificently brought to life by students participating in this year’s Science Fair. The theme of food allowed children to explore and investigate in a whole manner of different ways. We had some very impressive demonstrations and explanations including how to make eggs blue, the chemical breakdown of fizzy drinks and comparing the differences between organic and non-organic produce.

We’ve also had a brilliant year of family events which were brought to us through the awesome work of our very dedicated EFG (Events and Fundraising Group). Children’s Day, The Christmas Fayre, International Day and Festa Junina all built upon and exceeded the foundation established last year, raising more money, awareness and resources for very worthy causes. It was wonderful to see so many parents involved and the generosity in time and donations was outstanding.  

At this time of year, as an international school, we expect to see a number of students and families moving on to new and exciting adventures. This is also true of some of our incredible staff. Saying goodbye to pupils and staff is incredibly sad, but I want to say a huge thank you and wish you all the very best for the future. 

I hope you all have a fabulous winter holiday and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Best wishes, 
Tracey Thomas
