An Emotional Science Week at BIS Hanoi

16 March 2018

The announcement of the death of the extraordinary British scientist, Stephen Hawking, poignantly fell amidst this week’s celebration of science at BIS Hanoi.

Thus, it was a fitting tribute to Hawking’s passion for popular science, that our secondary science team at BIS Hanoi should present a pyrotechnic extravaganza today, that illustrated difficult science subject matter in highly entertaining and accessible ways.

Dancing Waves of Fire

I don’t think the children will ever forget the sight of Mr Minchin and Mr Lovatt playing the organ, whilst waves of sound danced in flames before their eyes.  Nor will it be easy to forget the voice changing attributes of dense gases, as illustrated by Mr Duckett, whose impression of Bane, from Batman, was pitch perfect.  The assembly even ended with a big bang!  As troops of young scientists left the auditorium, there was a sense that the wonder of discovery was alive in the hearts of the children, whose own journey through our universe has only just begun.

Every Subject is Important at Parents Evening

Thank you to the parents of Year 7 who attended Tuesday’s parents’ evening.  We look forward to seeing parents of Year 8 students on Tuesday 20 March, at 3:30 pm.

These evenings are vital to your child’s development.  They provide the opportunity for teachers to share with you the areas of strength that your child is developing.  They also provide an opportunity for sharing future targets.  Most importantly, it is a chance to celebrate your child’s success, with their individual teachers.  We would urge parents to visit all subject teachers at this event.  By doing so you are reinforcing for your child the importance of all aspects of their education.  Making sure our children know that we value music, the arts, languages and sport is one of the most important roles we can play in helping our children become well rounded, open minded learners.  Mathematics and English are important but they represent less than a third of the curriculum that your child studies, each week.

IB Visual Arts Exhibition Monday 19 March 

Please feel welcome to visit the school next week and enjoy that work of our IB Visual Arts students.  Their work will be displayed in the Sixth Form Study Room.

Enjoy your weekend and Happy St Patrick’s Day to our Irish parents.
