Ms Sue Hill Weekly Update: 5th June

In assembly this morning two important messages were given to children; the value of taking charge of your own life and the importance of acting with integrity.


An announcement was made at the beginning of assembly by Mr Ian, saying that he had received an important message which was urgent for us all to hear. The authorities in Ho Chi Minh City had decided that from next week, girls were not allowed to receive an education and could not attend school. The TX children gasped and one or two even cheered! They became more alarmed when we  considered the consequences of girls not being able to access an education or take exams. This was the situation that Malala Yousafzai found herself in, at the age of 11years, in Pakistan. When the Taliban took over The Swat Valley, where Malala was living, the thought of not having access to an education prompted her to take charge and let the world know what was happening through a blog. Malala who now lives in the UK is a highly inspirational young lady, who was recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize as she continues to campaign for education for all children no matter what their religion or nationality is.


Taking Charge is one of our BISCAT pillars and children are encouraged to look at ways they can take control of their own lives and have a voice in their community. Luckily, we are not in the situation that Malala found herself in however we can make a difference. Remember children, you can have a voice by joining the Eco Warriors and the Eco Scouts or you could let your student council representative know of your ideas for making our school even better.


The second part of the assembly was a celebration for 12 children who were awarded the Masters of   Integrity in a graduation ceremony. I then had the pleasure of fine dining with our Masters graduates this lunch time. Congratulations to Rena, Trong, Toshi, Subin, Truc, Tammy, Pauline, Mina, Gia An, Gia Bao, Chi Nghia and Hannah. These children have shown that they repeatedly make good choices about how to act.


Next week, I am looking forward to our Summer Concert - TXstravaganza. All parents are welcome to come and watch on Wednesday 10th June at 6pm.


Ms Sue Hill, Head Teacher
