Extracurricular Clubs

“There are a lot of popular clubs here at BBIS that are successful, attract a lot of students, and are a whole lot of fun. Students enjoy the clubs as they are unique compared to the regular timetabled lessons. Our school hosts clubs that allow students to compete with other schools such as Drama Club, the Sports Teams and Model UN. On top of this, they enable students to go above and beyond with their studies with the accessibility of various clubs that help us build on our skills. We would typically practice these skills during school hours, but with clubs such as Hungarian, Choir, Homework Club, Science Club and Creative Writing, we improve without being restricted to our subject lessons”.

Residential Trips

“Residential trips usually take place at the end of the academic year. The school staff plan well in advance to make the trips as enjoyable and challenging as possible. The different year groups go on separate trips to various destinations. We have enjoyed sailing trips at Lake Balaton, a farm stay in Mohacs and a trip to Vienna. It depends on the year group as to how long they go for. MYP students may go on a five day trip to another country. The younger students would usually go for 2 or 3 nights to a destination in Hungary. Students have many opportunities to participate in fun activities that are always interesting and help inspire teamwork and encourage us to face new challenges. All students make lovely new memories that they will last a lifetime; residential trips are a fantastic experience for all involved”.

MYP Personal Project

I’ve been dancing for six years, 3 or 4 times a week. When I was little, I tried every sport out until I found my true passion, dance, at the age of 9. After two years of doing it, I had this emotional roller coaster. I was getting bored during training, and my determination flew away instantly. But even when I was at my lowest, I still did not stop. I just kept going. Eventually, I found joy again and started working twice as hard as I did before. Now I can create and choreograph a piece and know what movement should come after another. It took me two months to put this trio piece together with only two half hours a week to practice and memorise it. 

I chose to choreograph a contemporary piece for my Personal Project. Every style has its specifications, movement style and technique. As one of my teachers once said: “ it takes ten years of learning about dance and your body to understand the basic concept of dance technique.”  I agree with it 100%.  One important thing that I have learned about being a choreographer and going through this huge journey is that you should always know how to transform your vision and ideas into movement and towards your dancers. Most importantly, understand the structure of a performance.
