Service Learning

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Taal Volcano Appeal. We are still accepting donations, so please help if you can. The fire-trucks of the National Civil Defence Network will be coming on Monday to collect what we have, and will coordinate the distribution.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty around Taal Volcano, the potential impact an explosion could have on a big outdoor event, and the difficulties our fellow Filipinos are facing at this time, we have decided to postpone International Evening until after the half term break.

The event will now be on Saturday 29 February, instead of Friday 7 February. 

14 February: Non Uniform Day
29 February: International Evening

PTA

30 January: Coffee morning for new parents (who joined BSM after the start of this school year) from 8.15am onwards
