More than 600 members of the BB&N community gathered at the Nicholas Athletic Center on November 16th for One School One World (OSOW), the School's celebration of multiculturalism and diversity.
Held bi-annually, the seventh OSOW highlighted BB&N's various initiatives, programs, clubs, and curricula. The event also provided a venue for School families to promote understanding of cultures and countries.
The festival featured countless tables of exhibits, "main stage" student performances, and artwork from all three campuses. In addition, BB&N teachers from all three campuses were out in force to show off the student work and the multifaceted activities taking place in their respective classrooms.
One School One World's success is due in large part to parent organizer Karen Fabbri, to the many parent and student volunteers who put in countless hours to make it happen, and to Lewis Bryant, BB&N's director of multicultural services.
