Dear Parents,

I hope you find this week's Newsletter informative and that it can also give you a good insight into the many activities taking place at BIC.

We continue to look for ways to share with you the many initiatives we currently have in place to support student learning and enhance their experience at school. Next week we will feature news and photographs of the recent trip to London and as well as upcoming events.

Yours ever,

Duncan Giles

Principal, BIC Sa Porrassa

BIC Dragons' Den


Following the format of the BBC’s Dragons’ Den, BIC students aged 12 to 15 from Sa Porrassa will pitch their business idea for 3 minutes, then face a question and answer session for 5 minutes, to successful local entrepreneurs - our BIC Dragons.

House points will be awarded for all participants, with double house points for those whose ideas the Dragons approve!

Parents, students and teachers from both BIC campuses are invited to attend.

Last week the children had several experiments to do, including putting an egg in coca-cola and vinegar! The results were very interesting. On Friday, Nati from Coped Dentist in Palma came to visit the class to talk about the results of the experiments and talked to the children about what they need to do to have strong, healthy teeth.
