We have many children moving on from BNIS this year to places far and wide. There are children moving to Sweden, to Portugal, to the UK, to Germany, going to boarding school, relocating to remote Scottish Islands, transferring to Nairobi schools or moving up to senior schools. This is tough for any child, let alone those who have been at the school for most of their lives.
To support the children with this big move, they spent the two days of transition altogether. This means they did not have to travel up to the new classes and find out about what they will not be becoming part of. Mrs Gould planned two days of fun for them and spent time chatting to those who are feeling a bit overwhelmed by their impending move.
The departing children, from the current FS2 to Year 8, had a great time playing outdoor games, creating Goldsworthy Art, sewing a bunting flag, building a structure from spaghetti and marshmallows, creating a shared replica of a Paul Klee painting and writing their account of the Bag Mystery. They also created thank you cards and some wrote speeches for the Leavers Assembly on Friday.
Mrs Gould had a wonderful time and would like to thank the children for their enthusiasm, as well as the support she received from some of the staff!
Everyone at BNIS wishes every one of our leavers all the best at their new schools and we can’t wait to hear how they are getting on.
