Extra-Murral ActivitiesThese activities are held in the afternoons and may vary every year or even every term. They usually include chess, swimming, cricket, soccer, netball, beauty club, taekwondo, piano and guitar lessons and more.
A fee may apply to attend certain activities. Also, some of these activities may be held on a weeked and outside campus.
These activities have been of paramount importance in fostering our belief in a holistic development of the children in our school.
Winter FairThe Winter Fair is BIS's biggest fundraising event usually held around June every year. Vendors from the school community as well as all around Beira, come and sell their new or second-hand products and offer their services. Every class in the school offers fun activities in which other children may participate for a chance to win prizes. There's also a rifle draw where one of the prizes has been a return flight to Johannesburg and stays at paradisiac touristic destinations in Mozambique.
Sport's Day & Spelling BeeEvery child, parent and faculty at BIS is part of a House. BIS is divided into two houses, the Cheetahs and the Lions. These compete between them in two main events - the Sport's Day and the Spelling Bee - throughout the year.
The Sport's Day is the biggest sport's event of the year and includes such activities as athletics, relays, spoon and egg race, bean bag throwing and others. Scores are recoded and in the end the house with the most points wins.
Awards NightThe Awards Night is the last event of the year. It takes places at the last day of the academic year at Beira International School to celebrate those students who have achieved above average marks and have made remarkable progress throught the year. We identify and acknowledge those students with leadership qualities, the winning House for the year and celebrate graduation of students in the crèche.
