It´s been another busy week at BIC, Sant Agustí, and the school has been buzzing with activity for both children and adults alike.

Breathe in, breathe out

We were lucky to have Richard Lindstrom back with us on Tuesday who helped us set up the one-minute meditation programme last year for teachers to use in the classroom, which was a great success. See our Facebook page for more details and a video. This time, Richard´s training session focused on compassionate listening and techniques for encouraging happiness and gratitude. Ms. Carrie, Year 4 teacher, was able to put it into practice straight away and took her class to the outdoor playground to talk about the things that made them feel happy and grateful. Family and friends to play with featured prominently!

Something for the little ones

On Thursday morning, we launched our new babies and toddler group aimed at local mums and dads keen to get to know other parents in the area with young children. We had beautiful weather and a wonderful turn-out. The group is open to everyone and completely free so please bring your little ones and come and join us in our nursery playground on Thursday mornings between 9.15 and 10.30am. Refreshments and toys provided.

The great Sant Agustí bake off

The whole school got stuck in to mixing and baking this week too, in aid of the Macmillan coffee morning, organised by BIC’s very own baking queen, Charlotte Briggs. Each class baked a different treat and highlights of the production line include chocolate crispy cakes, gingerbread and banana cake. And all for a good cause! On Friday morning, the school welcomed BIC parents and friends to join us on the lemon tree terrace for a tea and cake sale, with all proceeds donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. What a talented and generous bunch our BIC families are.
