This week, along with other members of the school’s leadership team, I attended the first Nord Anglia Regional Conference for schools in South East Asia. It was hosted by BVIS HCMC and was a wonderful event full of great Professional Development opportunities for BIS Hanoi staff members. The region is made up of 8 schools:
- BIS Hanoi
- BVIS Hanoi
- BIS HCMC
- BVIS HCMC
- Northbridge International School Cambodia
- Regents School Thailand
- St Andrew’s International School Thailand
- Dover Court Preparatory School Singapore
There is no doubt that there is a great deal of expertise amongst the group, which is extremely useful for us as a school. The recently appointed NAE Regional Director for SE Asia is Mr Shaun Williams. Our school community is, I am sure, very familiar with Mr Williams as he was previously CEO of the BIS Group of Schools (Vietnam). Many of our founding parents will remember him well from the time we were setting up and opening the school in 2012 when he was a wonderful support to us at a very busy time. Mr Williams will help us to continue our important journey to make BIS Hanoi one of the most respected schools in SE Asia.
That journey, I can assure you, is well underway and a great example of the quality that we provide was on show Thursday evening in the school auditorium. Our “Winter Concert” saw 140 students perform to an audience of 250 people. Students from Year 2 to Year 13 sang and played a variety of musical instruments to the very supportive and receptive audience. What a wonderful evening which showed the talents of our students and the staff teaching them, along with the support that we get from our wonderful school community.
I do hope that you all have a most pleasant weekend.
Mr Anthony Rowlands, Principal
