Photographs from The Bermuda Institute's 2018-2019 school year

Periodic table: Bermuda Institute students are shown in a chemistry lab, a required course. Subjects like chemistry are often considered tough, but students are fascinated by the subject and recognise that science is a part of our daily lives. Bermuda Institute also offers physics and other subjects such as Home Arts and gardening. Students are even encouraged to recycle, just another way or protecting our environment. In the words of student: “The truth be told, we are all chemists.”
Sailing and leadership: Bermuda Institute students participated in the Endeavour Community Sailing programme, sailing from the Endeavour Forts in St George's and Dockyard to Shelly Bay, where they met for an afternoon of activities
Motivated to lead: every year Bermuda Institute student leaders participate in a variety of leadership workshops, including this year, a fun and educational trip on The Spirit of Bermuda. The workshops are an opportunity for staff to motivate them while teaching basic skills that all leaders must possess, including teamwork, commitment and responsibility. Our students are taught to be servant leaders, committed to serve God and their fellow students. They joined the team on the sloop where special attention was given to those much needed skills
Life saving: Bermuda Institute's first aid class has always been a requirement for the A & P class. In recent years, it has taken a whole new format. Now, not only do students participate, faculty and staff have come to realise that this is a necessary skill to acquire, as it equips them to provide immediate care to minor injuries. Students and staff report the sense of purpose that they get when learning the skills that enable them to perhaps save a life. If nothing else, it certainly builds confidence as they become engaged in strengthening their first aid knowledge
Learning time: every year, during the third week of October, Bermuda Institute hosts senior citizens to its campus to reminisce with them and celebrate them. BI has always felt blessed and privileged to be able to spend a day with our grandparents celebrating and honouring their contributions to our community and our individual lives. We also extend this by frequenting our nearby nursing homes to spend time, pray and chat with them. Regardless of their age, through the visits, our students learn to appreciate our seniors, any fears they may have and it is also an opportunity for them to understand the idea of ageing. Several years ago, Bermuda Institute petitioned a Premier of Bermuda to proclaim a National Grandparents Day
Christmas spirit: Bermuda Institute does not only focus on the academics but works to teach young people from pre-kindergarten to Grade 12 about the rewards of community service, as it is essential, regardless of age, to learn about compassion and understanding for others. By engaging them, they become more sensitive to the needs of others, thus make them more aware of the importance of service to their local community and beyond, and making a difference wherever they can. Aside from implementing two school-wide community service projects a year in our curriculum. The Bermuda Institute choir sang and the band performed on the steps of City Hall to spread joy to others during the holiday season, a time that can be wonderful for some and depressing for others. Other students walked handed out lunches and generally shared Christmas Spirit
