We had skin in the game! 👏⚽🏀❤️
Great CCB performance in sports
CCB had a great performance during the “Torneo Nacional Infantil AACBI” hosted by The English School in Bogotá. Our student athletes faced the competition with boldness and respect. Their growth has been notorious and it is a source of great pride for the school. They measured themselves against competitors from different schools and in the end these were the fruits of their labours:
Girls Football: 3rd Place🥉
Boys Basketball: 3rd Place 🥉
Boys Football: 4th Place
Big shout-out to our up-and-coming athletes and their coaches! To our Coaches Angie Riveros and Iván Guzmán (Girls Football), Michael Torres (Boys Basketball), Stiven Peláez (Boys Football), and CCB Extracurriculars Coordinator, Diego Bernal, thank you for your guidance and support.
📓✏️Our Students in the UK! 🇬🇧
Travel Log # 1
Our 27 6th grade students arrived at Heathrow
Airport in London brimming with excitement and expectations. For the last week they’ve been greeted by students at Barnardiston from different parts of the world and brought up to speed on the way the exchange works. Juliana Diez, CCB’s MYP Counsellor and travel companion, says that our
students have shown so far a wonderful adaptation
to the experience. They have grown in autonomy
and agency, establishing meaningful relationships
with their Barnardiston peers on their own!
And the journey has just begun.
Is there anything better than play? Last Saturday, the Early Childhood section had its Big Day Out, an event where EC’s staff, students and parents, come together to play as one big family.
María de Los Ángeles Marulanda Idrobo, CCB student, has been highlighted as a leader during her exchange program at Givat Haviva International School (GHIS) located in northern Israel.
