Mr Anthony Rowlands Weekly Update 01.04

What a great Saturday I experienced last weekend! I spent most of the day with our KS4 Boys and Girls Football teams who were participating in the Hanoi Schools’ Football Tournament held at St Paul’s International School. The girls lost their semi final to UNIS but  our young team battled hard and created several chances although they were not able to score that elusive goal. A great effort from our girls but what was more impressive is that they stayed for the rest of the morning to support our boys’ team. The boys won their Semi Final against St Paul’s comfortably. However, they faced a tough final against BVIS and the game ended 1-1, even after extra time. Eventually, BIS won the penalty shoot-out and were crowned Hanoi Schools KS4 Football Champions. It was a wonderful and successful day and the students really rose up to the challenge that I issued the day before in the Secondary Assembly to “Be Ambitious”.

This week we have seen three performances of the Secondary Production ‘West Side Story’, the famous musical by Leonard Bernstein. What spectacular performances they were showing what talented actors, singers, dancers and musicians we have at the school.  Over two hundred people attended on each of the evening performances and the fact that the band that played the music throughout was made up entirely of our students was quite amazing! Congratulations to all the students and staff involved and a special thank you to Ms Woolgar for producing and directing the show. Once again, the challenge to “Be Ambitious” was well and truly achieved!

If you have been following our

Facebook page

you will notice that a group of 10 students and 2 teachers have spent the past week at the Nord Anglia Camp in

Tanzania

. They have had some wonderful experiences by being involved in a great deal of community work and going on Safari. We look forward to hearing more from them upon their return to school next week.

In the

Primary School

it has been ‘Shared Learning’ week and it was wonderful to see many parents take the opportunity to come to school and discover from the students and teachers what the children have been learning.  It is really quite an unique way for parents to see how and what their children are experiencing in the Primary School and I could see how happy parents were after this experience. My hope is that, when we next offer this opportunity, all our parents come and join us.
