BIS Inter-House Cross Country CS-DON Fun Run and Meet the Teachers

13th October 2014




Saturday 18th October Inter-House Cross Country

CS-DON Fun Run and Meet the Teachers


Dear Parents,


As you are aware, the annual Inter-House Cross Country Run event, the CS-Don Fun Run and a meeting for parents and teachers will be held on Saturday 18th October 2014.


All students are required to be in school by 8.00am on Saturday 18th October to take part in the Inter-House event and Fun Run.


Between 8.00am and 10.00am, 4 races will be held including: Junior Boys; Junior girls; Senior Boys; Senior Girls’ House Teams. Following the completion of the Inter-House races, all students are encouraged to take part in the Fun Run and make a donation of N1000 each to the CS-Don Charity.


As the entire school compound will be used for the runs the campus, for safety reasons, will be closed to traffic between 8.00am and 10.00am. Vehicles arriving at school between these times will not be allowed access and vehicles already within the compound will not be allowed to move.  Following the completion of the Fun Run, the free flow of traffic in and out of the school compound will be restored.


Although students will be free to leave following the completion of the runs, teachers will be available to meet parents in New Horizons between 10.00am and 12 noon. This meeting is primarily designed for new parents to meet with their children’s new teachers, please note the parents of children returning to BIS are equally welcome to attend.


Teachers will not be speaking about individual children’s progress at this meeting but rather introducing themselves and providing details relating to this year’s academic programme. Parent Teacher Conferences to discuss student progress are scheduled for just after half term.


We do hope as many parents as possible are able to join us on Saturday morning to cheer on the runners and have the opportunity to meet members of staff.


With regards,




Peter Yates,
