Secondary Update – From Mr Simon Graves 08/01/2016

A very happy new year to all of you, and I trust you had a restful and enjoyable break. It’s always nice to take the opportunity to spend extended time with family, and for us as British and North American teachers, that’s very much what the period of Christmas is all about.

New Year is traditionally also about new beginnings and it is a time when people often make new year’s resolutions – which people also often break very soon after! In our assembly this week, expertly delivered by Ben and Jen, we looked at small things we could do that would make a difference to the people around us: smiling, paying compliments behind people’s backs, holding the door open… It is these small things, those things that often go unheeded or without gratitude, that help to make people’s lives so much nicer.

Last term ended with a bang, as two year 7s became the latest winners of the coveted BVIS Has Got Talent trophy, so a massive well done to Thia Ostrander and Bui Ngoc Anh Thu (Alice) from 7B!

BVIS has got talent

There’s lots more going on this term too. This week we have been engaging in our first ever Secondary International Week. Unlike in Primary, each department has been focusing on a different country. There will be more on this on next week‘s hub, but as a taster, see how the Vietnamese department managed to develop a greater understanding of Japanese culture…

The HCMC Haiku Club Authors’ Visit to BVIS

Clubs start next week, and then of course the week after, years 7-10 are off on their trips. Please, if you haven’t sent copies of passports and other documentation in, they need to come in by Monday! The same week, of course, years 11-13 will be taking their mock iGCSE, AS and A level examinations. These are such important exams, and I know all of our students have been studying hard towards them.

Also next week we are hosting a UK Universities Fair here in school on Wednesday afternoon. We would like to invite parents along from 3-4pm to meet with representatives from around 15 universities to discuss any questions you may have. Students from years 10-13 will also have the opportunity during the day to meet with representatives.

Have a lovely weekend.
