Let’s Keep on Giving! The BIS annual blood drive and the flu vaccination offerings were held on the BIS Campus on October 27th and November 2nd, 2020.
At Bali Island School, the importance of community is acknowledged; not only the school community but also beyond the school walls. The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) has a tradition of a strong presence since its inception at BIS.
According to PTA Chairman, Jinae Harrington, this has been very successful in raising funds for the students while also give back to the community by donating funds raised to their chosen charities. In this quarter, the PTA organised two events dedicated to healthcare by running a blood drive and a flu vaccine offering at the BIS Courtyard.
“Under the cloud of COVID-19, the BIS PTA stood strong and were proudly able to organise a successful flu vaccine with 31 people keen to receive their vaccine and a recent blood drive saw over 50 participants eager to give blood to support the wider community,” said Jinae.
