BIS Hanoi is a school where integrity, care and respect lie at its core.
This week, our Secondary students took part in a day of activities which challenged them to consider themes relating to respect. Treating people, places, and things with kindness is an important life skill. Giving respect to gain respect in addition to respecting yourself were topics for discussion in small groups. Throughout the day, I managed to join children composing songs about respect and debates about stereotypes portrayed in the media. This was a valuable learning experience spanning a range of subjects such as PE, Art and Drama too and involving challenging a range of beliefs and practice.
