BIStopia Week

Apr 24, 2015   //   by jhaynes   //   Events, Uncategorized  //  No Comments

Once a year our students’ study into community, economic and governance systems culminates in BIStopia, a week where the BIStopia government makes laws, the post office send letters, the hospital and emergency services of BIS rescue those in need and…the BISmark (our currency) rules supreme as our budding entrepreneurs set up shops and sell their wares. Cookies, peg dolls, hairdressing and book shops are just some of the few shops from the past, made by the children with passion and vision.

It is a really remarkable event and great to take part in. If you would like to come along and shop please book in to attend by emailing
