04 Jan 2024

As the British School of Sofia gracefully navigates through the 2023-2024 academic year, it's a moment to pause and reflect on our remarkable journey. Embedded in each day are stories of growth, discovery, and the unwavering spirit of our community.

Embracing Our Values

Our year commenced under the guiding light of our core values: excellence, respect, integrity, and curiosity. These principles have been words on our walls and living, breathing elements of our everyday life at the school.

Academic Achievements

As we bid farewell to the first trimester, reflecting on the milestones we've achieved is heartening. Our students have excelled academically and grown in empathy, resilience, and global awareness - qualities that define the ethos of the British School of Sofia. We've seen remarkable academic achievements. Our dedicated teachers have continuously innovated to make learning engaging and practical, ensuring each child finds their path to success. From interactive science experiments to thought-provoking debates in humanities, our students have flourished. Even as the Winter Break ends, they are busy expanding their qualifications with specialized training, planning for the rest of the school year, and ensuring everything is ready for their pupils.

Extracurricular Excellence

Our extracurricular landscape has been just as vibrant. The sports teams have shown exceptional talent and sportsmanship. Our football team has yet to match among the local private schools, making us a reigning champion with a well-balanced offence/defence strategy. The children excelling at Taekwondo have brought home ten medals and have successfully passed the belt promotion test, effectively raising the bar for the remainder of the year. Every new competition will see them compete at a higher level, with opponents who will challenge them to advance their skills. 

Community and Collaboration

The highlight of this trimester has undoubtedly been the sense of community. From parents participating in our workshops to students collaborating on various projects, the strength of our community has shone brightly. Charitable events and fundraisers have been a focus for our BSS students and their parents. 

Nurturing Future Leaders

Our Student Council has been hard at work making sure that students stay engaged with good causes, have fun activities available during lunch break, and participate in the governing of daily life at the school in a structured and productive way. 

Looking Forward with Anticipation

With the first trimester behind us, the excitement for what's next is palpable. We are on the cusp of more groundbreaking initiatives, opportunities for learning, and moments of joy. The upcoming trimesters promise to be filled with new challenges, achievements, and memories that will last a lifetime.
