ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN 2018-2019
OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE €125,000 TOTAL FOR OUR ECO-INITIATIVES BY 2021
OVER THE NEXT 3 YEARS the Going Green Committee, made up of students, teachers and parents, will concentrate on three themes to look at how BFIS can reduce waste and consumption to become more eco-conscious. We will begin with waste, then energy and end with water; one theme per year with the addition of educational units incorporated within our curriculum.
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.
