Weekly update from Head of Secondary
At Friday’s Assembly, students and teachers presented a dialogue around one of our school values: Respect.
I am reminded of how important kindness and respect are in helping young people grow and develop. When we respect others, we value them for who they truly are and give them the freedom to flourish. Respect is also about acknowledging everyone’s own unique journey and realising that everyone is doing the best with what they know and have. Educationally, at BIS Hanoi, we know that a personalised and caring approach leads to a sense of psychological safety that enables young people to try, learn, take risks, and grow. Respect is a powerful principle and a strong part of who we are as a learning community.
This week you will see proud and exciting announcement regarding both university offers and Cambridge Outstanding Education Awards. Those Year 13 students who applied early to universities around the world are beginning to receive offers, all from top universities. Additionally, you will read about the tremendous achievements of students from last year’s Year 11 cohort. We hope you enjoy this week’s updates and Virtual Learning Showcase.
