"Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference." - Dame Jane Goodall
Staff and students at BISA had the privilege of hearing world-renowned primatologist and anthropologist, Dame Jane Goodall, speak on her most recent visit to Arusha.
Dr Goodall spoke to a packed audience on planet conservation, climate change and the importance of those tiny changes that everyone can make to help preserve our precious planet for future generations. The students of BISA were enthralled by her message and, following clean up day last week, have been further inspired to play their part in looking after our little corner of the world here in Arusha.
Students and staff will be taking part in World Clean Up Day events on their return to school in September. Keep an eye on our website to find out more about how to get involved or go to the 'Let's Do It' page to see what is happening around the city in preparation for this day.
We want to say another huge thank you to Dr Goodall and her team for giving our students your time and your inspiration. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to Arusha.
Our Primary students had a fantastic fun sports morning on Tuesday morning to help them round off a busy sporting year at BISA! A big thank you to Mr Odhiambo for organising such a fun event!

KS3 rounded off an amazing year of BISA productions by taking us on a trip to Neverland on Friday 22nd June. Their performance of 'Wendy and Peter' had all the elements of the classic J.M.Barrie book: the Darling children, a hungry crocodile, the larger than life Captain Hook, the rambunctious Lost Boys, the feisty Tinkerbell and TigerLily and, of course, the boy who never grew up, Peter Pan.
The young Secondary students did a wonderful job of creating the fantasy world of Neverland with their minimalistic set. The production was filled with comedy, music, and some fantastic performances channeling some of famous pirates and lost boys!
By far and away the most exciting element of the production was the aerial antics - making our cast members actually fly. With the help of a large contingent of BISA staff backstage, our young performers literally took to the air throughout the performance.
Well done to all of the students and staff involved in this fantastic performance! Enjoy a highlights reel below:
