Students compete in various sporting events, such as football, long and short distance running, netball, long jump, tug-a-rope and others.
During the closing ceremony, individual, group and Houses are awarded. BIS Olympics is a memorable event that students and families love, and it is a good opportunity to strengthen connections within the community and to build tradition.
