Respect Day 1

Dear Parents,

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.

Care, respect and integrity were also at the fore when I discussed recent community projects completed by students who took part in the Nord Anglia Education Camp in Tanzania. Students recounted their feelings and successes when reporting about helping to improve lives for villagers through installing solar panels, light sources and building projects. Many of the students said the experience had changed their lives too. An awareness of how people lived with minimal possessions and still remained happy prompted some to be less materialistic. A more in-depth report on this meeting will follow however Heidy’s reflection below captures the thoughts of many.

When I went to Tanzania, I truly realised the severity of poverty. I always knew and still know that poverty is a big problem in the world. However, when it is displayed on media all the time I believe that we become numb to the reality of the situation. Actually seeing people who live in poverty changed my views and truly made me understand the phrase “seeing is believing”. It changed my perspective on how I view life and made me more grateful for the things I have instead of complaining for the things I don’t have. CHO Minseo (Heidy), 10S
