Our community partnerships are very important to our school; this week was particularly rewarding as our BIS community was offered a glimpse of how we can impact the lives of others. Mid-week, Year 6 students went to Hy Vong, a school for disabled, to meet the children we have formed relationships with over the past three years.
Over the year money has been raised to help Hy Vong to update their facilities by adding a stage and performance area so they too can showcase song and dance. I would like to thank the group of Korean Secondary parents who donated VND23 million to this fund.
Our partnership with Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation was also strengthened further this week as our Global Studies Group has worked hard to provide much-needed bicycles adapted for disabled children. Further details can be found in Mr Halpin’s article here.
