Year 5 Camp
On Friday of last week, all of Year 5 returned from their three-day camp experience at La Montaña Camp. While they were there, they participated in a range of activities focused on team-building, leadership, responsibility and independence.  Throughout the camp, the students were excellent role models for the BSCR as they took part in the many challenging activities including hiking, high rope courses, mud runs, archery and keeping their shared bedrooms tidy!  We would like to thank both staff members and the Secondary students that joined us on the trip as camp counsellors: Leonardo Jiménez, Ariella Chaves, Andrea Soley, Ankit Patel, Gabriel Jiménez.  All five students were exemplary as counsellors for the Year 5s and we greatly appreciate their willingness to volunteer for this challenging role.
