Newsletter 10 - Term 1 2018-2019

This has been a very exciting week with a lot of notable achievements. As calendared in our planner, BKIS set the pace in marking the annual Thanksgiving Luncheon on Wednesday 21st.  A brief history of this celebration was given by one of our parents; Rachel Griffith as,  “ Thanksgiving Day, is a public holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. ... The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621”.  She also reminded the BKIS community to always  be thankful for the many experiences we have.

The climax of the day was of course the sharing of the meals brought to school by our supportive parents. It was also a great opportunity to reunite over a meal as BKIS family.

We also had the rear opportunity to see the talents in BKIS as was coordinated by the student council. Indeed BKIS has Talents ranging from dance moves, singing and creativity in puppet show!

A big thank you to all those who made the day a great success. Thank you too to our MD –Mr. Andy Hill who also graced the occasion.
