The Global Games
This week the Global Games has arrived at BIS Hanoi. Athletes from three schools will compete on the international stage in the sports of football, athletics and swimming. We have young stars from Year 5 to Year 8 playing sport at a wonderful level. The intensity of competition and the thrill of discovering new opponents for the first time is a great feeling for young athletes. Even better is the opportunity to forge new friendships both on and off the field of play. It would be great if parents can come along and support the students taking part in the games. There is an athletics meet from 10 am at Bac Ninh University on Saturday and a swim meet at BIS Hanoi on Sunday from 10:30 am. Please note the competitors must arrive earlier and must follow Mrs Airdrie’s schedule.
If you were lucky enough to be present at school on Thursday afternoon, you were witness to something special. The talent contest finalists provided a stunning display of music, dance, singing and magic. The competition was of the highest quality and the winner will have triumphed in the most demanding of arenas- the peer vote.
Respect the Brave
Between the Global Games and the Talent Contest a massive number of young people have been brave enough to perform on a challenging platform. A platform where the rest of the school watches and judges performance. All of us need to remember that we should celebrate the bravery of those who perform in front of us. We need to admire their skills and their talent which shines and often delights us. It should never cross our minds to criticise those who perform in public; instead we must find ways to admire their skills and above all, their courage.
Thank you to the School Council
Congratulations and thank you to the School Council who planned a terrifyingly good Hallowe’en party for BIS students on Friday 28 October.
