The Primary School Choir has been extremely busy rehearsing for their forthcoming concerts.

Their first venture on the road was at the Anglican Church Bazaar, an event which for many years has heralded the arrival of the festive season. This event is always well supported and the Choir filled the altar as they enjoyed performing their repertoire for the first time in public.

 

 

Their Christmas repertoire included the immortal carol Silent Night, which they performed admirably in English, Spanish, German and Catalan, followed by Cliff’ Richard's wonderful song 'Mistletoe and Wine', which certainly gave the audience a warm, Christmasy feeling. The solos and duets were sang beautifully by Victoria, Nieve and Amber and the children were accompanied in some songs by Aleksandra on the piano and Dana on the recorder. 

 

This is just the start of the season for the Choir and they have several more concerts, including the BIC Christmas Fair, The Boat House, Mood Beach and Porto Pi and their music teacher and Choir Director, Mrs Baggaley is very proud of all members of the BIC Choir.

The school Principal represented Baleares International College at the monthly abcMallorca Business Lunch. While enjoying the beautiful surroundings, Mallorca’s top business community gathered once more at the opening cocktail to exchange ideas and share interesting projects.

 

 

The popularity of the abcMallorca Business networking lunches was once again confirmed by the large attendance of around 80 guests. The abcMallorca editor Helen Cummins gave a brief introductory speech welcoming participants




The lunch also provided an excellent opportunity to make all important connections and it was encouraging to see so many members of our school community present that afternoon as well as old friends from the Rotary Club of Calvia.

Year 13 student Anne-Sophie Rehbock has kindly donated her piece 'Faceless' on loan to the Principal's Office. 
The artwork, a monochrome painting depicting an uncertain embrace features interesting views on homosexuality and the importance of tolerance and understanding in the world we live in; the faces of both are deliberately obscured so as to exemplify the little relevance between gender in these matters.

A deliberately provocative piece that leads to important and valuable conversations on the topic.

With a little over 4 weeks for Christmas, it is time to begin our preparations in earnest. BIC is proud to continue to host the Christmas Fair on the school site. This is an excellent opportunity to find those all-important stocking fillers, to enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie or to simply catch up with friends away from the early morning rigours of the school drop-off. We look forward top seeing many of you there. 

 

 

The school also launches its Christmas card competition, students of all ages can take part and design the card the school will send out at the end of term.

Halloween celebrations got off to a scary start, when Year 4B presented their Halloween Assembly, which was enjoyed by peers, parents and teachers alike.





This included singing, dancing and dressing up, as well as many interesting facts about this festival which has grown in popularity over the years. There was a competition for the most gruesome costumes. The winner was…ALL of the Year 4B fortheir great efforts. The assembly came to an end with Michael Jackson’s immortal classic 'Thriller'.





All the children, together with their class teacher, Mrs Bakes enjoyed this experience and certainly impressed their audiences, setting them up for a horrifying Halloween!





This was followed on Thursday evening when the school opened after dark to celebrate the very popular disco; the dining room was transformed into a scary dance hall and many pupils returned to school in frightening and amazing costumes.





They also visited the Horror Chamber, where they encountered many frightening characters and all enjoyed this special evening.Many thanks to the Sixth Form who make this part of the event sospecial for the younger ones.
