Dear families

Chuc Mung Nam Moi and a very warm welcome back and I trust you had a very happy holiday with your families.

We finished just before TET with some amazing TET assembly performances:

2. Welcome new families in Term 2

This week we were delighted to welcome many new families to our school. We had over 25 new families so far join us in Term 2 with some more still asking to join. I am also pleased to say that due to our growing popularity at least 4 year groups across the school are now at full capacity with waiting lists of families waiting to join the school.

Please find below the photo of the Induction meeting with new Korean families, another meeting will be held next week for new Vietnamese families:

3. NAE Internal Audit results

I am delighted to inform you that following the NAE audit in November, the school has been informed that the school has achieved the highest score of grade 1. We are the first school ever in NAE history to achieve this outstanding score. This is amazing and demonstrates our commitment to Health and Safety, Safeguarding and compliance across the whole school.

5. Community service

Before Tet holiday, our students and teachers in Secondary school participated in series of community service to support local people.

Year 8 and members of of Khuong Dinh Elderly Association together made beautiful Banh Chung and sent to disadvantaged households.

On the occasion of Kitchen God Day, Year 12' students and teachers from BVIS Hanoi went to West Lake to spread awareness about saving the environment. They instructed the local people not to drop plastic bags into the lake and collect plastic bags after people performed the ritual of releasing goldfish into the lake. In addition, they picked up trash in public areas such as gardens and sidewalks.

In addition, with the support of the Helping Hanoi Homeless Club, a group of  Year 13 students distributed many packages of Tet gifts to homeless people around Hanoi at night.

On behalf of BVIS Hanoi, I wish you a very happy weekend.
