BBGV Fun Run 29th September 2013

A remarkable 500 BIS students, parents and teachers participated in the 4km Fun Run, making this day an extremely ‘FUN’ event.  It was also the largest ever turn out of BIS participants for a BBGV Fun Run, evident from the size of our BIS Team Photo.  A great morning was had by all!  Pre-run we were motivated by the energy of the Cheer Teams. Post run, we were entertained by the Corazo’n Latino Band.  There was a great community atmosphere under the red and white striped tents, with balloons, a variety of food & drinks from vendors, fun games, and our very own BIS ‘FUN’ Photo Booth.  Everyone participated in some shape or form - some ran a highly competitive race, others took a leisurely stroll and many students used a variety of transportation devices such as bikes, scooters, rollerblades and skate boards.  It was great to see so many BIS participants at this event in our distinctive Union Jack inspired Event T-shirts.

We are also extremely proud of our students who once again featured in the awards categories of the Fun Run and who had the honour of receiving their medals from Lord Puttnam of Queensgate and Douglas Barnes, HM Consul General.
