Capoeira club ends with grand presentation

We finished our first Capoeira club with a great exhibition where the BIS students played Capoeira with the group "Oficina Cultura e Raízes". Our teacher Aladin and his group once again put on a great show, and we even had a special guest, Mestre Zulu. Zulu is a master of Capoeira and one of the biggest names of Capoeira in Brazil and in the world. We were honored to have him in our "roda de capoeira" and our kids had a great time doing Capoeira with him. Every BIS student that completed the Capoeira club received a certificate at the end of the event. Special thanks for our teacher Aladin for all his hard work and support. We will offer more capoeira clubs in August... : )

3rd - 6th grade Soccer team plays against Corinthians at home


  The 3r - 6th grade team finished the season with a great game against Corinthians. The Eagles lost their final game at home, but it turned out to be a great game with many goals from both teams. This concludes the soccer season for this year, but I am sure we'll see more of this team next year. Congratulations to Allan and Tomohiro for scoring the goals for the Ealges!
