'Performing Arts Week is a time for BSN students, teachers and families to get involved with all kinds of celebrations of music and performance. Our campuses' halls and courtyards will come alive with the performing arts from students, teachers and the wider BSN community. During the week, starting 23th of March, we will be putting on a range of events, as well as having students and teachers busking all week, to raise money for Beat Batten'.
Batten disease (also called Child Dementia) is a disease of the nervous system that typically begins in childhood. The onset of symptoms is usually between 5 and 10 years of age. First the child loses sight until they become completely blind and after this they are affected by seizures. So far no medicine, treatment or cure is available. The Beat Batten Foundation raises money with the goal to finally find a cure to this disease.
