The British International School Hanoi is proud to be a member school of Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) – a federation of over 50 of the best British International schools in the region. All member schools are closely scrutinised on application and have to meet an extensive range of quality standards in order to be accepted into the group and to retain membership.
Being a member of FOBISIA offers BIS Hanoi students opportunities to take part in a variety of cross-school international competitions, fixtures, and events, such as the FOBISIA Games and the FOBISIA Performing Arts Festival. Other FOBISIA events for students include collaboration over community service projects, a Model United Nations conference, a Primary Maths competition and a Drama Festival.
FOBISIA organises conferences where teachers from across the region can meet to share good practice, swap ideas and receive professional training. Some examples would be conferences for Principals, Deputy Heads, Business Managers, ICT Coordinators, Careers Education and Guidance teachers, Music teachers and PE teachers.
There is also a FOBISIA teacher professional development executive committee. The committee arranges for university lecturers from the UK to train teachers from around the region helping to ensure we keep our teachers up to date with the latest educational thinking, providing opportunities for them to study for further qualifications.
