The British International School, Hanoi has a core commitment to the all-round (holistic) development of each child. Through a range of planned community service and fund raising activities the school will provide appropriate opportunities for the students to develop a respectful and caring sense of social responsibility towards other people and the environment on both a local and global scale.
Promoting Community Service
Projects are currently being developed for both primary and secondary schools.
We have 3 types of community projects
The expectation is that our students give time, energy and commitment to benefit others and ideally we will help them with proceeds of any fund raising activities supporting the projects which involve our students.
Benefits for the Students Involved
We aim to make links with various organisations which become known as our community partners. Our community partners may be from orphanages, they may be from charities involving disabled children, they may be from other schools. We believe it is very important that our students have the opportunity to make friends and communicate with other children. Learning together benefits both the school and our community partners forging lasting friendships and awareness.
Teaching our students about the environment helps them to respect the planet. They will learn to take responsibility for all our actions and using integrity they will become global citizens caring for the Earth on which we all live. These are some of the attributes that we look for and expect and can be seen in our Aide Memoire.
Everyone loves animals! Well almost everyone!
We will be looking at how to care for animals in our community, also raising awareness on endangered species both here in Vietnam and across the world.
The school believes that involvement in community service activities will assist in the development of the following personal qualities:
||- Social responsibility
- Care, kindness and compassion
- Respect and tolerance
- Leadership and problem solving skills
- Personal confidence
- Cultural understanding
- Personal satisfaction and pride
I look forward to updating you on projects as they become established, I would like to welcome any parents who are interested in supporting our initiatives.
