Next Wednesday is an important date for our BIS calendar as we celebrate the 30-year anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of a Child. On World Children’s Day, we ask all our school community to wear blue, the UNICEF colour, to mark the occasion. Various activities will be happening to reinforce the link between the Global Goals and the Convention, and students are encouraged to have a voice.
This weekend 14 students from BIS will join with students from UNIS to work in partnership with UNICEF. Our students will be leading teams of children from local schools in order to voice opinions about ways of improving the lives of children here in Vietnam. I am looking forward to hearing the outcomes of the weekend and seeing the impact of the collaboration.
