Dear Parents

The safety of your children is always our first priority at BIS Hanoi, therefore, we have been monitoring the progress of the weather in the region, as our residential trips approach.

The widely reported typhoon Mangkhut Typhoon is a concern. As a consequence, we have taken the decision to postpone the Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 trips. Therefore, Key Stage 3 students will attend school for all of next week. We will make every effort to re-schedule the Key Stage 3 trips, later in the school year.

The Year 10 trip to Dalat will proceed, as planned.

Any updates will be communicated via our secondary office.

Value Added Performance at BIS Hanoi and last week’s Year 7 CAT tests

When students enter BIS Hanoi, either in Year 7 or as a new entrant, they take a cognitive abilities test (CAT). This test provides teachers with a better understanding of each student’s strengths and areas for development. The results are extremely useful for the teaching team. The test also generates predicted levels of performance at the end of each key stage. These predicted grades form the baseline from which we measure each child’s progress. Our ambition is to help students to go beyond this baseline or expected level of performance and attain a higher grade than the one predicted for them. When a school takes its pupils beyond expectations, it is said to have added value to student performance.

Overcoming Obstacles to learning at BIS Hanoi

For our students, difficulty with the English language, is the most common obstacle to making progress beyond expectations within our British international curriculum. However, we don’t make excuses at BIS Hanoi. Our mission is to make sure your children overcome the obstacles they face. We have invested heavily in strategies to improve the level of English throughout the student body. It remains a priority for us, this year, and success in language learning will continue to be an important factor in our students’ progress for years to come.

Another Joyful Experience at BIS Hanoi

Thank you to all secondary students and parents who joined us to celebrate the Moon Festival today.  It was another reminder of the joyfulness one experiences as a member of the BIS Hanoi community.
