Friendship Day
On Wednesday the 14th of February, the British School Community will be celebrating Friendship Day.  In recognition of this, we invite all members of our community to come to school dressed in either white, pink or red on this day.

As we near the end of our third week of classes, our students are already fully immersed in their STEAM projects.  Students have been asked to create a hypothesis and then undertake research to identify facts that will answer the question they posed.  Students have also created their own representations of tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, tornados and others.
