A warm welcome back to a new academic year. All our staff have been extremely busy over the last few weeks getting the school ready for this particular week. On Tuesday it was wonderful to welcome our new students, along with their parents, to the school for their induction morning. It was equally exciting to see all our students return to school on Wednesday. On both occasions there was a great atmosphere around the school with many smiling faces and excited greetings. The photographs in the BIS Hub will give the school community an insight into these two exciting days.
In his article Mr. Short has outlined in more detail about our achievements in our first IGCSE and AS Level examinations. The results were very pleasing and almost half our grades at IGCSE were A*/A which clearly shows our wonderful achievement as a school. Our younger students have also performed extremely well and from the assessment data we have we know that our Primary and KS3 students are making excellent progress. In this respect our students and teachers should be commended and be extremely proud of themselves.
We are a relatively young school but we have extremely strong foundations and this bodes well for the future. The popularity of the school is built on these strong foundations which has seen us receive a record number of applications over the past few months from prospective parents who want enroll their children at BIS Hanoi. As we move into our fourth year of operation we have a great deal to look forward to.
I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and that next week you will all be able to enjoy the Vietnam National day celebrations.
Mr. Anthony Rowlands, Principal
