International London House and English Kids Academy organizes on June 14, the 2013 edition of British Ball. The event will take place at Palatele Brancovenesti in Mogosoaia, near Bucharest, and will be held with the support of the Bucharest City Hall, Bucharest School Inspectorate and His Excellency Mr. Martin Harris – Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
British Ball 2013 ends the annual project “Your British Break”, within which, students from 6 schools in Bucharest, carefully selected by the criterion of performance, benefit from a complementary program of non-formal education in English. By developing skills, promoting among children the British cultural model and increasing the involvement of parents in the school learning, organizers aim to create the necessary conditions to ensure the development of a successful new generation.
In this context, Bucharest students have the chance to participate in the annual Fonix English contest, conducted by one of the most influential teacher, trainer and manual author for teachers of English in the world: Scott Thornbury.
In the English Kids Academy programs children learn more than English, besides creativity and teamwork, they learn respect and responsibility towards the environment and towards other children. During the program they will organize a Homecoming raffle and auction with unique items gathered from around the world, and all of the proceeds will be donated to children with special needs from St. Margaret center of the Foundation “Children in Distress”.
