Dearest BAMBI members,

Welcome to March! I always get excited in March, as in my mind, it’s the beginning of Spring! What is your image of March?

For BAMBI, March is when our year ends. BAMBI’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be on 26 March at the British Club. At the AGM, we will report on what we achieved in 2019, elect a new committee, and announce our plans for 2020. Please come to support the committee, and you can enjoy our British Club Playgroup at the same time.

This month’s theme is “Learning.” It feels like my eternal quest is to find the best education for our kids. I have two boys, two years apart. They went to the same kindergarten and now go to the same elementary school. They are learning in the same way, but as you can imagine, they are SO different! One is living in an imaginary world, and the other is very real and believes in money. As they attend an IB school, many assignments require using their imagination. One can come up with so many answers using his imagination, and the other one cries because he cannot imagine non-existent things. But for logical questions, the imaginative one always struggles. I often question if they should be getting the same style of education or not. I wish I knew the answer.

Finding the best education for our kids is a mission and we have to make decisions as parents. Parenting is hard from day one and it keeps getting harder as the kids get older, but parenting is also very meaningful and fun. We are meant to enjoy it and learn from it!

If you have some time to spare, please remember that BAMBI is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers. Parents and parents-to-be can become BAMBI volunteers. If you are looking for a way to contribute to the community, want to use your skills or develop new ones while connecting with other parents and like-minded people, then please consider volunteering.

We need a Chairwoman, Vice-Chairwoman, Secretary Assistant, Editor Assistant, Playgroup Leaders and Activities Leaders right away!!

If you are interested, please let us know because BAMBI needs you! 

See you all at the AGM.

Akiko Cayne
Acting Chairwoman
