I trust you all had a great holiday last weekend and spent some valuable time as families celebrating Vietnam’s Independence Day.
We also held some assemblies to celebrate this occasion.
We have had another full few days with information sessions for parents and meetings for both primary and secondary families and we hope you found these useful.
Next week, I will also host 2 Parent information sessions as below:
One of the benefits of having two NAE schools in Hanoi is that we can collaborate on initiatives and share staff to run activities and events for both schools. As you know, BVIS already runs an annual summer school that is open to both sets of families attending BVIS and BIS. In return, BIS will be offering some Saturday morning CCA for families from both BIS and BVIS. Please see attached link HERE further details. Kindly note that the CCA is applied for students from F3 and will be held in BIS campus.
Each year we support and take part in the BritCham Charity fun run. Last year over 250 members of our community took part and I hope we can beat that record this year. I hope you will join us on this fun and worthwhile event.
To participate in the event, all members of the BVIS community purchase a Running package “T-shirt and Ticket Combo” with a price contribution of 330,000VND. These funds will be distributed directly to the charitable activities of BritCham Fun Run. This combined price of 330,000VND is reserved for BVIS community members only.
Please kindly click HERE to register and order your shirt size.
Deadline for registration: 5pm on Sunday, 1st October 2023.

This week in Early Years the children consolidated their work on co-regulation and self-regulation – learning to manage their emotions. The children understand that it’s ok to feel a tricky emotion like anger or sadness, but the important thing is learning how to manage it. Resilience in the Early Years is a process that will grow over time. It is our responsibility to teach the children regulating strategies. The children have learnt to use their words to express how they are feeling and a range of breathing techniques to support their emotions.
They enjoyed playing matching games to review the vocabulary. They were inventive in creating actions for each word.
Year 2 starts our Vietnamese and English lessons this week. Children are getting familiar with a new routine in these lessons. They are excited to learn new sounds and get many dojos from lessons. Well-done Year 2!
Year 3 are practicing being story tellers. They can perform the story ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ and use expression and actions to convey meaning. They can also recall the entire story using our story maps.
Year 4 embarked on an exciting journey into rounding to the nearest 10s; 100s; and 1,000s. They dove headfirst into the exhilarating Number Tennis game filled with joy. Then they explored through the Rocket Rounding game at Topmarks - an educational website, where fun and learning merged seamlessly.
During Vietnamese lessons, the students have been using roleplay to help them remember the story, “Ông vua Lãng Phí và ông vua Tiết Kiệm.”
The Year 6 students are learning all about how to create a narrative in both English and Vietnamese. In English they are looking specifically at gothic texts which use suspense. The students began learning the model text story off by heart and created their own actions to help them remember the words and structure of the story.
This week, the Y10 IGCSE Drama class have embarked on their first devising unit. Inspired by 'Patch Theatre Company', pupils have been exploring multiple ways to create imaginative performance work using everyday materials.
Year 7V artist of the week, showed integrity in her work.
Year 7 students during their first secondary school practical session. They demonstrated a remarkable level of responsibility and safety awareness while using Bunsen burners. It is amazing to see their enthusiasm for hands-on science and their ability to follow instructions carefully. Their responsible behaviour sets a positive tone for their scientific journey ahead, and we are excited to guide them as they continue to explore the world of science.
12BsY1 students meticulously developed business plans from real-world case studies and then adeptly delivered 60-second 'elevator pitches,' fostering confident public speaking and on-the-spot persuasion skills.
Year 12 were introduced to the new medium of oils in their art class this week. They showed how talented they all were and enjoyed discovering new skills. Their work was of high-quality, well-done year 12!
