History Competitions, Campaigns & Trips

02 December 2014

In History, we encourage students to participate in a number of extra-curricular trips, competitions and campaigns. This helps to enhance their knowledge and personal interests in learning. In fact, in the History Department we enrich the lives of our students through hands-on and active learning strategies.


This year we have a small and dedicated group of students who have taken on the challenge to extend their passion for history by joining the History Club. They are committed and hardworking historians and it will be great to watch them succeed this year. The History Club will help judge the first of four History writing competitions. Our first competition invites pupils to write about the History of London and is designed for BIS students only. Our second competition will be the first time that we have competed internationally and students will submit essays to the Historical Association of the United Kingdom’s “History Fiction Competition.”

Additionally, students are producing entries for this year’s National History Day Competition. This is a large event and BIS Hanoi scholars are getting prepared to compete with over half a million other students from all over the world. Our first goal is to compete in the preliminary rounds of National History Day (Asia). We wish them all success.

Campaign set for 2014-2015

Students decided that this year they would support the Anne Frank Trust charity. The History Club members look forward to raising awareness in and out of school about Anne and her life. By doing so, we hope to encourage and embrace positive attitudes, personal responsibility and respect for others.

History Trip: A Discovery of Vietnamese Educational History

The History Club shall run trips which create educational links with other institutions across Vietnam whilst learning about Hanoi.

Our first day trip will be to Ke Ve Village and the Temple of Literature. Ke Ve Village, the home of many generals and doctors during the feudal period, and Temple of Literature, the first university in Vietnam, both display the best of schooling and examination systems of Vietnam in in the past. Following this, we will visit a modern university to ask our question “How is knowledge from the past used in universities today?”

We look forward to an exciting year of learning in History.
