Bielefeld Bear On Deployment

Bielefeld Bear (BB) has now deployed to Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

BB, accompanied by one of the regiment’s soldiers, is on a special mission for Bielefeld School. Once BB arrives, he will be joining many of our brave parents who are already on deployment.

Part of BB’s top secret work will be to make contact with as many people in Afghanistan as possible. We are expecting some very exciting photographs.

In preparation for the mission, all of the children from FS2 to Year 6 wrote messages of goodwill to BB during Thursday’s assembly.

We also looked at a map of the world, to locate Germany, the UK and Afghanistan. We discovered that the flight would take about 7 hours and 30 minutes.

Luckily, BB will be taking plenty of water and a few snacks!
