Sports Week
To promote participation in sports and healthy living among our community, the BSCR will hold its annual school-wide “Sports Week” during the next week, May 23-27.  This week is organized jointly by the PE Department and our Student Council.  Please see the sections below for dress rules.
Students in all year levels will participate in a wide variety of competitive and fun activities during their breaks and regular PE classes throughout this week.  In addition, swimming Olympic Champion, Ms. Claudia Poll, and Former National Football Team Member, Ms. Alexandra Mora, will share their experience with our students.  Finally, on Friday 27th of May, Secondary students and staff members will be participating in an activity called “A Kilometre for Ukraine”.  This activity is a 1 km walkathon (3 laps) of the BSCR campus, with participants being asked to make a suggested donation of ₡500 that will go to the Ukraine Appeal of the United Nations’ World Food Programme.

Thank you to each of our Parent Representatives who participated in this week’s Parent Council meetings.  These meetings serve as an important communication channel between the Parent Body and the School’s Administration.
