Today is an important milestone for the Geography Department here at BIS Hanoi as we have been awarded the Secondary Geography Quality Mark awarded by the Geographical Association of the UK. Both myself and Mr Forster have been working over the last year to audit the Department in various aspects (using our students as a key source of feedback), such as teaching and Learning, pupil attainment and achievement and leadership and management. This shows our dedication to continual improvement and us striving to provide the highest quality Geography education to your children.
Using this recent accreditation from the GA, widely renowned for being at the forefront of Geography curriculum design, we will now be offering trips to each year group, including the upcoming Year 8 trip to the Geology Museum, so Year 8 parents please look out for the CHQ invite and click to allow your child permission to attend this trip.
Also, on September 27th, Key Stage 3 and 4 will, once again, be participating in The World’s Largest Lesson, organised by the United Nations in recognition of the new Sustainable Development Goals, with this year’s focus being on Goal 5 – Gender Equality. Watch this space for more about how your children will be involved!
Thanks for reading,
Jim Schofield, Subject Leader of Geography
