Thanks to connections made by BOSIA board member Holly McIver, Wilkes Elementary School on Bainbridge and Ruben Dario Primary School in Altagracia are now Sister Schools.
Once it became clear that the state, country and world would be engaged with trying to restrict the spread of the Covid-19 virus for a long time, the Student Delegation Committee explained to student delegates and their parents why there would not be a delegation in 2020.
The second and fifth grades of The Island School presented a check for $8,848.47 to treasurer Paul Carroll and other board members. The students raised that money by creating and selling 2020 calendars.
When the Sister Islands’ staff on Ometepe visited Bainbridge in December, one of the highlights was a warm reconnection of old friends: Keith and Jane Wentworth and Karla Varela.
