On November 24, Christmas came early this year in the form of the Migrant Children's Foundation (MCF) and Beijing City International School (BCIS)'s Christmas Bazaar held at the BCIS Main Campus. As is the norm for this annual tradition, community and charity were the key words of the day. With this in mind, over 70 Christmas shopping stalls selling a wide a range of products, including food, beverages, and handicrafts, kept the numerous attendees in a festive and charitable mood. There were also various student-led booths that helped raised money for worthy causes, showing how empowered and caring our students are. In addition to the wonderful treats and trinkets on sale, a fun program featuring live music and other performances from BCIS students and guests from MCF that helped keep everyone's spirit up. By the end of the event, a total of 47,200 RMB was raised, which will be used to provide 94 migrant children with health check-ups in Beijing.
Once again, the BCIS staff, students, parents, and other community members showed the true BCIS spirit by gathering on this day to make it a truly special event.
