The Bali International School (BIS) Bazaar will provide a day of relaxed fun for island residents and visitors alike on Saturday, March 16, 2002. The family oriented day will also provide much needed funds for a number of school and community improvement projects planned by the island's oldest established international teaching center.
Children attending the event will be able to enter a jumping castle, play volleyball and even test their skills on computer games - all under the watchful supervision of parent and teacher volunteers.
Students at the school have caught the spirit of the event and will be organizing their own activities such as face painting, hair braiding, ping-pong, a bake sale, and an indoor War Hammer game. The school's rock band will perform on stage, along with other talented student entertainers. Meanwhile, more refined listeners ears will have the chance to be serenaded by a gamelan orchestra from the local banjar, celebrating and strengthening the school's links with its host community in Sanur.
"Bali International School is important to many of Bali's expatriate families. They are supporting their school by donating terrific prizes for our raffles," said Dr. Nelson, who heads the school. Raffle tickets are Rp 20.000 each and will be on sale at the event.
Bali International School has invited 40 local merchants to participate by promoting products at the Bazaar.
Established in 1986 by a small group of parents, The Bali International School is a not-for-profit foundation. Completely self-supporting, all profits are reinvested to maintain and improve the amenities for the students and teachers. As a result, the school now has an extensive range of modern facilities for its 300 students. Last year a new senior school was built, including a computer and science Lab.
The Bali International School Bazaar will run from 10.00 a.m. until 3.00 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, and is open to all. The event will be held at the school, just off the Bypass (behind the Sarinah Supermarket), on Jalan Danau Buyan IV/15, Sanur. Entry tickets are Rp 10.000 for adults and Rp 5.000 for children.
