Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from BCIS!

“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

In the lane, snow is glistening,

A beautiful sight, oh, we're happy tonight,

Walking in a winter wonderland.”

Ladies and gentlemen! The first semester of the 2017-2018 school year has come to an end. Hearty congratulations to all our students, parents, guardians, teachers, and staff members for making it through another fruitful semester. We would like to wish the entire BCIS community a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! When each holiday commences, one can not be but happy to finally receive a break from all the hardships that have passed and savor the sweet moments from the past year. Take the BCIS choir for example, which worked extremely hard to put on wonderful performances showing that great Christmas spirit (if one needs further convincing just take a look at the video below to see the smiling faces they have put on our friendly neighbors at Golden Heights). Everywhere the group performed this year, they brought the joy of the festivities to the show. Audiences could not only see the children's talent, but also their warmth and happiness in sharing the message of the holidays.

This semester, there were many wonderful events held at BCIS that truly showed what a tight-knit community we are, as well as how we are living our mission, “to challenge and empower students to be compassionate and inspired people, who act for the good of all and for the sustainable development of the world.” We sincerely thank you for your participation and continued support!

2017-2018 Semester 1: "Warming Hearts":

• Grade 5 businesses: Over RMB 15,000 is raised for various migrant children's schools.

• Terry Fox Charity Run: RMB 170,687 raised for cancer research.

• Christmas Bazaar: RMB 36,600 raised to provide medical and health check-ups for migrant children.

• ECC Kindergarten Christmas Bazaar Shop: RMB 3,500 raised for an animal shelter and the Help a Child Smile organization.

During the winter break, we will continue to share more heart-warming stories, which we hope all our readers will enjoy in their spare time. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all once again! May 2018 bring you and your family much peace and joy!
