Aspiring BWYA Poets Perform Pieces at Poetry Slam

ISB hosted its second annual poetry slam, The Beijing School Slam, at the Bookworm a few weeks ago. You may be wondering, “what exactly is a poetry slam?” and “who would want to attend a poetry slam, let alone participate in one?”. A poetry slam is a chance for poets to write their own poems, perform them in front of a large audience and compete to find the best poem and poet.

Clothes, Toys & School Supplies Donated to Qinghai Temple School

Last year we started a Community & Service project to collect clothes, books and toys for a poor village school in Qinghai, and we have continued our efforts this year. A local temple built this school for the children in the village. We usually mailed the clothes to them, costing lots of money and time, but when we did it we felt very happy about it. We collected the clothes and school supplies mostly from people at BWYA, and we made posters to promote our project and let the other people at BWYA help us.
