Life at BKA

Welcome to the BKA community where we celebrate open mindedness and diversity!

A place where teachers and families come together to encourage children to learn, explore and inquire to become the next generation of great innovators. We celebrate local traditions as well as traditions from around the world which reflect the diversity of our families and staff members.

We are proud to invite parents with a specific talent or knowledge to join our classes as guest speakers and share their know-how with the children. Basel serves as the perfect city for field trips to enrich children’s cultural understanding and certainly brings learning alive.

Traditions & Celebrations

At the BKA International School we enjoy celebrating life and culture. We encourage our children and their families to come together and join us as we celebrate the great traditions we have established over the years. Some of these traditions include:

  • Summer Picnic
  • Lantern Walk (a Basel tradition)
  • Winter Celebration

As a Basel based International School our students learn about Swiss traditions as well as celebrating international holidays. Throughout the year, we introduce the children to fun local traditions, such as “Vogel Gryff” or “Fasnacht” and teach them about their significance and history, giving the children a valuable insight into local culture.

Keeping the children engaged and motivated is of utmost importance to us as a school, for that reason we teach inquiry based curricula and have regular assemblies to celebrate our learning. We like to believe that no day at the BKA International school is the same and to keep things exciting for the children we celebrate many international holidays such as Halloween, Valentine’s day and more.
