BIC - Fundraising Heroes

The Baleares International School (BIC) is one of the heroes of Mediterranea, most notable for providing schooling for Mikias, a fourteen year old Ethiopian boy visiting Mallorca to receive medical treatment. He will shortly be returning to his family in good health but also with language skills which will provide employment opportunities for him in the future. BIC are keen for Mikias to continue his studies at home and donated the proceeds of their Spring Fair to Mediterranea.

On Saturday 28th of May the sun shone down on the school. There were stalls overflowing with home baked cakes, delicious local and international food, stalls and competitions. The children and teachers showcased the school’s musical talent and there were dancing and juggling displays. Meantime a sponsored walk/run was taking place on the sports field. After three mad hours Mikias drew the raffle and it was all over with €3124.33 raised.

But that’s not all. On 6th and 7th June over 100 children from the Primary School performed the Wizard of Oz to a packed house at the Bendinat Auditorium. Proceeds from ticket sales were again donated to Mediterranea...more details to follow in an upcoming report.

A big thank you to Mrs Mitchell, the Principal, and all the staff, kids and parents.
