This week in the Primary School – Ms Rosy Clark 22/01/2016

I thought BVIS parents may like to know more about our links with our BIS sister schools in District 3 and District 2, especially as this week we hosted the annual “Teddy Bears’ Picnic” for all of our Early Years classes.

Our BVIS Early Year’s department doubled in size on Wednesday when all the teachers and children from the BIS campus located in Tu Xuong, District 3 travelled over by bus to spend the morning taking part in a variety of teddy bear themed activities. The children from both schools mixed and played together, indoors and outdoors, and it was a great opportunity for all the teachers and teaching assistants to mix together too. A great time was had by all!

The children at the British Vietnamese International School have the opportunity to mix with BIS children through sporting events as well as special events like the “Teddy Bears’ Picnic”. Recently you may remember we hosted a meeting for all the BVIS/BIS Primary Student Councils – another fabulous opportunity for our children to share and develop their skills.

Teachers and teaching assistants also have the opportunity to meet professionally and socially with their colleagues from BIS. Last weekend, 250 BIS and BVIS teachers participated in a day’s training with Professor Guy Claxton here at BVIS and at the beginning of January an evening party hosted by our Nord Anglia Regional Director allowed BIS and BVIS teachers to relax together informally.

The Primary senior leaders all meet together regularly. This year, Mr Oliver and I have been meeting with the BIS Primary Headteachers and their Deputy Heads to review the recent changes to the English National Curriculum.

We believe this close working relationship between the schools benefits the children and the staff. The children are able to broaden their experiences by meeting and mixing with other children and the staff gain from the professional dialogue and support from colleagues.
