Mr Simon Graves Weekly Update 28th August

Welcome back one and all to another wonderful year. It was strange going back to the UK in the summer; although I had a wonderful time meeting up with friends and family, when the time came to return to Vietnam, it really felt as though I was coming home.

I’d like to say a very special welcome to all our new students and staff, who I can see by the smiles on their faces are already loving life here. You’ll be getting to meet all of our new teachers on this page over the coming weeks, so watch this space.

In my assembly this week I spoke to students about the importance of positive thinking; in short, being happy improves your grades and makes you live longer! A positive, can-do attitude; a willingness to give things a go, however difficult they may seem; even a smile to say hello to someone in the corridor; all of these things improve our own well-being and our achievements as a whole.

We have an extremely exciting term coming up, as always. Squad trials have already begun, Student Council elections and House Captain appointments take place over the next couple of weeks, as do the FOBISIA Student Leadership Conference, sign-up for clubs begins shortly and we even have a visit from a world-famous polar explorer! And of course amidst all this extra excitement, classes are as busy and productive as ever. Please do ensure that your child arrives on time, in full uniform – including black school shoes – with all their equipment each day, so that they can settle quickly into their learning.

I look forward to seeing you very soon at our coffee mornings, and wish you a wonderful weekend, but I’d like to finish with a few words by our new Assistant Head of Secondary, thầy Joe Shooter:

Well what a whirlwind 2 weeks it has been! Just over 2 weeks ago I was sat at home in the very wet and different United Kingdom and now I am here in Vietnam! In such a short space of time I have met wonderful new friends and colleagues, moved into a new apartment, sent my daughters to a new school, tried some incredible new food, started a new job and in the last few days I have enjoyed meeting all of the amazing students of BVIS.


I cannot tell you how impressed I have been with both BVIS and the BVIS students. It has been a real pleasure to come to a school where the students are so polite and enthusiastic about learning. As I have walked through the corridors I have really noticed the smiles on the faces of everyone here and this has given a real positive atmosphere to the school which is very pleasing indeed. I am sure that as the year progresses the smiles will become even wider and the atmosphere will become even more positive.
