COBIS Eco Film Awards

The Year 8 BIST students made it their mission to give recycling materials a whole new purpose. They gathered plastic water bottles, paint buckets, textile string, flower pots, cardboard boxes and recycled paper and transformed them into musical instruments. Bongos from flower pots, Maracas from plastic water bottles and Congas from paint buckets soon became their favourite percussion instruments. After finalising the instruments, the students gave them more personality by painting them in different colours and patterns.

All the percussion instruments that were manufactured with a lot of enthusiasm and creativity by the students were used to accompany their musical creation. With support from their music teacher, Mihai Bizgan, students wrote the lyrics and put together the structure of an original composition called “We protect the nature”. The whole experience concluded with the performance of their creation. We hope you enjoy the result of their work, they definitely enjoyed being a part of it!

The video was sent to COBIS and results of the Eco Film Awards competition will be announced in April 2020.

Creative Arts

The 9th grade students learned about Pop Art during the Creative Arts classes. They were introduced to different visions of this modern art trend, by studying the works of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein but also by applying the concepts in practice. Using bright colours, water colours, markers, pencils, bold outlines and repetitive patterns they created their own works that were displayed in the school’s main hall.

Creative writing – Romanian competition “Clipe de toamnă”

In October 2019, four of our Primary School students took part in the Reagional Creative Writing Competition, „Clipe de toamnă”, organized by ISJ Timiș, CCD Timiș, Secondary School no.7 ”Sfânta Maria” and ”Împreună pentru copii” Association.

Based on a collaboration agreement between the two schools, BIST students, coordinated by Ms. Adelian Leanca, Romanian language teacher and Ms. Raluca Bembe, Romanian language teacher, competed in the creative writing section. They won outstanding awards for their creations, which makes us proud of their involvement in activities outside of school:

Gloris year 4  – 1st place

Anda year 5   – 2nd place

Raul year 5    – 3rd place

Year 7 Science Lesson

In Physics, the students from Y7B studied air resistance, one of the forces slowing things down. They designed their own parachutes from plastic bags and as parachutists they used various toys. They weighed the mass of the parachutist by using an electronic scale and they measured the surface area of the parachute. They launched the parachutes from the balcony of the indoor courtyard and measured the time taken to fall down was measured with a stopwatch. They noticed that air resistance is affected by both surface area and the weight.

Year 9 Science Lesson

In Biology, the students from Y9 learnt about the different types of microscopes, the main parts of a light microscope and they started to study about cells, specialised cells and how cells join together to form a tissue. They used the microscopes to visualise different specimens originating from both plants and animals.

Fancy Dress Event

Fancy dress on Friday 15th November 2019 was a great opportunity for our children to dress as one of their favourite hero or book character, have fun with their friends and teachers, but also help a noble cause. Our children have made a collection and contributed with money in order to support the children in need as part of our newly created collaboration with Asociatia C.O.P.I.I.

United Day Celebration – 25 October

This was an amazing day; a great opportunity for the BIST community to get together and celebrate the international spirit of our school, diversity, respect and tolerance for other cultures and nationalities. The show has revealed the creativity and talent of our children and has helped us put in practice a number of our school values. All in all, it was the perfect end of a first very busy half term. Congratulations to all our students and teachers and many thanks to our parents for sharing the moment with us!
