New Families Welcome Program

Monday, August 28, 2017

To BFIS is important that new families feel a part of our community as soon as possible, providing new students a quick and easy transition. We all have been there and we know that new beginnings sometimes can be overwhelming. We want them to experience a smooth transition into their new city and their new school. BFIS provides a Welcome Program designed to help new students and their families make early connections within our friendly and inclusive community and provide them with all the information they need to know for a successful start.

As part of our program all new families were invited to a Barbeque in our campus. Many current families were also there to welcome them and connect with them. Everybody had a wonderful time and the students enjoyed different activities and games planned for the afternoon.  The next day the school organized an orientation morning for new families to discover what the year ahead at BFIS holds. After receiving their Welcome Packages they had  the opportunity to see the campus more fully and meet the teachers. This was an exciting moment for the students and gave them the opportunity to familiarize themselves with their peers and new surroundings. This morning was also a very good opportunity to learn more about BFIS’ culture and services and find out how to get involved.
