House Captain Interview

Impressive Year 6 Leaders

At BIS Hanoi, we believe in empowering students and providing a range of leadership opportunities, so one of the highlights of the start of the academic year for me, is talking to the Year 6 students who apply for House and Vice-Captain roles.

At the beginning of term, Year 6 students were invited to apply for this important position; almost a third of the cohort put pen to paper, outlining why they would like to take on this role and what strengths they could bring. Their letters and ideas certainly impressed, but they took it to another level during their interviews this morning with myself and Mr. Webb.

Inspired by and having learned from the current Year 7 students, they were articulate, reflective and showed great humility. These Year 6 students talked about responsibility, being a role model, encouraging others and the importance of honesty as we discussed leadership qualities.

By the end of the interviews and brimming with pride, we reflected that each and everyone one of them is already a leader and how lucky we are to have such an outstanding group of students in our school. As they shared their thoughts, they also supported each other, listening carefully and building on ideas throughout the interviews. Mr. Webb and I would like to congratulate every single one of you for your efforts today and hope you return home this evening feeling proud of yourselves – you were all brilliant!

Across the rest of the Primary school, there were more entry points this week. Year 1 were out exploring Vinhomes this morning looking at buildings. Earlier in the week, Year 6 came in dressed as Romans and Year 4 dressed as cave men and women to kick off their topic ‘Pictures, Paintings and Photographs’.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
