Grade 12 took a trip to the Chronic Care Center in Hazmieh, where they visited the genetic lab and learned more about gel electrophoresis and DNA analysis. They listened to lectures about Thalassemia and Type 1 Diabetes, which are two prevailing diseases in Lebanon and are also covered in their curriculum. They also passed by the blood bank to learn more about the process of handling, preserving and testing blood samples before blood transfusions are given to patients.

Our BE THE “I” IN KIND campaign was created as a tool to teach our BBS learners about the importance of being kind to one another.
During this time our counselors and teachers emphasized kindness in their guidance classes, and encouraged learners to practice in action what it looks and sounds like to be KIND in order to make their classrooms, playgrounds and school a kinder place. Learners also picked an act of kindness paper and were encouraged to apply it in their daily life.
