Primary Live Lunch

Mr Scott arranged the first Primary Live Lunch of 2019, with children from Year 2 to 6 giving magnificent performances in our foyer area. Our students demonstrated their musical talents with a range of solo and group performances on Wednesday lunchtime. In a relaxed arena of comfy chairs and beanbags, the audience of students, teachers and parents enjoyed over half an hour of vocal, piano and string performances from a range of genres. What stands out most, is the passion and perseverance that goes into rehearsing and practising and the pure enjoyment of performing. Live lunches are a welcome intermission in the busy school day and we look forward to the next one.

 

Studio Theatre Inspires Debate

The Year 13 Theatre Arts students performed to a studio audience on Wednesday evening.  Their innovative piece of original drama explored the theme of masculinity. The audience was treated to a remarkable piece of theatre that inspired debate and admiration in equal measure.

Pirates of the Curry Bean

Our final performance of the week was an absolutely outstanding performance by Year 6 in their production of ‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’. They entertained us with humour, songs and dance as they told this exciting tale. Watching how much the students enjoyed this performance was the magical element; they performed with confidence and flair. There was a full-house of parents, siblings, teachers and students and a fantastic evening’s entertainment. Congratulations again to the students and staff who worked tirelessly in putting together such a high-quality performance.

BIS Hanoi Explorers Return as Global Citizens

The Year 11 and Year 13 trial exams ended and the school sprang to life immediately. We welcomed back our International Award students from Dalat on Tuesday. Their four-day expedition was challenging but there were many smiles at the end of it all. On Thursday evening, another team of explorers returned from Tanzania. In both cases, students have been living the values enshrined in our Global Citizen initiative. In different ways, the children on the Tanzania and Dalat trip have celebrated diversity, adapted to their environment, demonstrated balance, solved problems and taken action.

Friends of BIS

It’s not just our students who have had a busy week but parents too. Sunday saw our first Community Litter Pick with over 50 volunteers made up of parents, students and staff. We set off to a public area just outside Vinhomes to pick up litter, with the help of Keep Hanoi Clean, who generously provided re-usable gloves, grabbers and sacks for the rubbish. Our hard work certainly paid off, picking up over 220kg of rubbish in just over an hour. We will be organising another one in March so please keep an eye out for the date.  

Parent Yoga was back on this week in the chill-out chamber with Stephanie and there will be more yoga and Zumba after the Tet Holidays. Finally, Ms Huyen, who has been leading Vietnamese language lessons for parents, led a cooking class on Thursday. Savouring the delights of Vietnamese cuisine, our parents got to make and taste Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Banh Trung and Coconut Candy. It was lovely to see so many parents learning more about some of the local traditions, food and Tet preparations.

We take this opportunity to invite parents to our Tet Assembly next Wednesday at 2 pm in the auditorium. It is a wonderful celebration which our Vietnamese staff and children are busy preparing for. It has been a short term but both Primary and Secondary teams have achieved a lot in the month of January. We now look forward to the Tet celebration and holiday with a sense of satisfaction of a job well done.
