School Events – Summer Term 2024

The children had a wonderful morning taking part in the Olympic themed sports day. They were split into 4 teams; Africa, Asia, Americas and Oceania. To begin with, children took part in a round robin style medley of events; from shotput, hurdles, javelin throwing and long jump to football and hockey dribbling skills. At half time, the children enjoyed a cool off in their classrooms with ice pops and the grown ups went into the hall for tea and cake. The children then took to the race track to run individual sprint events and a team relay. Even the Mums and Dads joined in with a race of their own. The winning continent was Asia with only 5 points in it. Everyone had a fantastic morning – well done to all participants and FoBFS for helping out with the refreshments.

To celebrate the wonderful children at BFS and to showcase the amazing resilience and strength that each and every one radiates, each class held craft sessions and produced some fantastic work to represent how they feel about being a “military child”. The children did some wonderful artwork of dandelions that are representative of a military child in that the seeds are sown and then flourish wherever they land – just like our wonderful military children. The day was made even more special with a fabulous hotdog picnic organised by the FoBFS team. Thank you to everyone who made the day so wonderful and for our fantastic children for just being themselves.

The school were very privileged to welcome the US Naval Forces Europe and Africa “Maritime Winds” Woodwind Quintet band to conduct an assembly for the staff and pupils of BFS Naples. The event was kindly organised by the Vice Chairman of the SGC, Sgt Mark Botterill. The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the musical performance and a very informative Q&A was held afterwards. Thank you to our American friends for taking the time to visit us and impart their fantastic musical skills. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
