Well done to all the students who joined the trip to Mountain View School in Salatiga to take part in the IISSAC Cross-country running and Badminton tournament from 7-9 April.  Special congratulations to Gilbert (Grade 8) who got 1st place and Max (Grade 7) who got 3rd place in the 3km event.  Our boys’ team got 2nd in the Cross-country and the girls were placed 3rd! In Badminton Sofyan and Chan Woo were placed 2nd in the Doubles and many of our other players got 3rd and 4th spots.  All of the students showed wonderful team spirit and were very supportive of their friends on the court or field when they themselves were not playing or running.  Many thanks to Mr. Hector and Mr. Markey who led the trip and supported the students so well.

Well done to the Grade 7 students who organised Friday’s Movie Night as a fundraiser for the Refugee Learning Nest in Bogor.  RLN teachers visited us on Friday afternoon and we felt privileged to find out more about how these teachers, refugees themselves, are helping the refugee children in Bogor.  They came to Fabulous Friday and then joined a meet and greet with the Grade 7 students.  Thank you to all staff, students and parents who welcomed and supported our visitors in different ways.  We really appreciate your generosity.  Many students watched one or both movies and several BIS community members donated food and other resources to support the organisation.  Grade 7 has managed to raise more than Rp 15,000,000 for the RLN!!
