Haiti Appeal

Over the last few weeks, the BCIS community raised a total of over 42,000 RMB for the Haiti relief effort. We will donate this to a microfinance organisation in Haiti called Fonkoze (www.fonkoze.org). Fonkoze (a contraction of the Haitian Creole phrase “Fondasyon Kole Zepòl” meaning “Shoulder-to-Shoulder Foundation”) is essentially a bank for the poor, and will disburse these funds not as charitable donations, but as easy loans to lift Haitians out of poverty whilst contributing to the growth of the economy of the country.

From the Children of Madaifu and the Christmas Apples

BCIS joined a charity drive called “the Christmas Apples” organized by the Children of Madaifu at the end of 2009. A total of 79,941RMB was raised by the sales of all apples in Beijing. BCIS sold lots in Elementary School, Middle School and High School. A small primary school in Nanshan (Gansu) had a new heating system installed and classrooms are now heated to 20 degrees. Additionally, there is no coal smoke in the classes now so students are better able to concentrate on their lessons. The remainder of the money was used to buy new books for their library. Thank you once again for your kindness towards your community.


JUMP into It – Developing Leadership in Middle School

Last weekend 12 of our Middle School students (grades 6-8) participated in a truly inspiring JUMP into it leadership training workshop. The workshop focused on developing self-awareness, self-confidence, team-building and leadership skills. The students took part in a series of increasingly challenging activities during the two day workshop, reflected on what they learnt and how they could apply their learnings after the workshop. These students proudly demonstrated at a Middle School assembly some of the things they had learnt at the workshop. Most inspiring of all was when these 12 students led the entire Middle School, almost 150 students, in a huge group activity without the need for any assistance or intervention from their teachers!
