Wow, term 2 at BIS Hanoi has been an exciting one! Bookended by our production of the Beauty and the Beast at the beginning and an equally stunning art exhibition at the end, the term has been packed with memorable events.
We have contested three Hanoi Athletic Conference soccer finals; dominated the Under 13 FOBISIA sports tournament in Phuket; smashed our way into the top half of the table of the Junior Mathematics FOBISIA Olympiad and participated in two Model United Nations competitions.
In addition to this, we have enjoyed trips to Mai Chau and Cat Ba. Our huge cohort of International Award students have marched their way across Vietnam towards their bronze and silver awards. There was a spectacular science week, a melodic music recital and the first ever BIS Hanoi IB Diploma showcase evening. We have hosted a parents evening for every year group in order to provide individual and personalised feedback for every student from every one of their teachers.
As we enter the holiday, it is time for the whole community to reflect on their achievements. The hard work is a beast and the students and teachers have earned their rest. I know that they will be content this holiday because they could not have given an ounce more of their energy to BIS Hanoi; Term 2 has been a very special and beautiful one for our community.
There is no rest for our Year 11 and Year 13 students
