We have a lot planned for the students again this term. We have several UK Universities coming to speak to Year 10 and Year 11. In mid-January, the Year 10s will go on their assessed expedition for Duke of Edinburgh. On the 26th of January, we will hold a Holocaust Memorial Day working again with the Israeli Embassy, and a renowned Israeli concert pianist. It promises to be a thought-provoking occasion. Our annual Public Speaking competition is themed around the Holocaust Memorial Day, planned for the last week in January. This year it will be both in English and Vietnamese. Preparation for all the Tet activities will also be taking place. At the end of March, Year 9 will go to Sa Pa on their residential trip.
Throughout the term, the sports department will continue to run many practices and fixtures after school and at the week-ends. Rehearsals for the Secondary play will also be in full-flow, as the show will take place on the 7th of April. So, as you can see, Secondary students will be kept very busy, enjoying extra-curricular activities as well as working hard in lessons. It is important that they get and remain involved in school life! We are also very focused on year 11, who are sitting their mock exams this week. We look forward to seeing their results and supporting them through this term, so that they are as well prepared as possible for the IGCSE examinations in May.
