ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN 2018-2021
Our objective is for BFIS to become a model Eco-school for all schools in Barcelona and our action plan will help us to achieve a higher standard for the conservation of the environment.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
Please support us by making a donation towards our going green efforts and sustainable eco-spaces. Your donation will ensure that BFIS will be awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag, a certification from the Eco-Schools Program received for reducing our waste, energy and water consumption, therefore becoming a more eco-minded school.
To coincide with our ecological initiatives,contributions to this campaign will go toward our outdoor play space with the purchase of a new jungle gym for Elementary students. The BFIS Annual Fund will also support the upgrades to our spaces by providing durable outdoor furniture and tables placed in the Middle and High School courtyard to compliment a garden with new plants and materials, also known as Eco-Spaces.

It is clear that in order to prepare our students to lead in a 21st century work environment, we have to provide a 21st century learning environment. The brand new BFIS Strategic Plan created in 2017 has set a very high priority on creating this environment in all divisions of the school. This year, the money raised through the BFIS Fund will be invested in implementing technology initiatives for our students from K-12. It means:
— The continuation of our Lego Robotics K-5.
— The addition of interactive whiteboards throughout the ES.
— And the preparation for a 1:1 laptop environment in MS/HS.
