Mr Mark Sayer Weekly Update 04th December: Choices

04 December 2015

In recent weeks, the school has been involved in informing students and parents about the International A Level, university application processes and IGCSE choices.

  • BVIS Principal update 20151204
  • BVIS Hanoi student choices
  • BVIS parents teachers 20151204

This has been a very important process for all concerned.  At the British Vietnamese International School, Hanoi, there is a wealth of talent and experience here to help all parties make informed choices, based on personal tastes, interests and developing life plans.  Talking to parents, it is clear that you share our desire for the long-term success of your children, our students.  Which parent is not interested in seeing their child(ren) benefiting greatly from the worthy investment in their education?

But when it comes to life chances and future direction, it is so important to enter into an open and patient dialogue with your child.  If their voice is heard, acknowledged and recognized as at least valid, the chances of arriving at decisions that benefit both the student and the parental desire for strong educational and economic outcomes in the future are much more likely.  Where a young person is encouraged to research, and explore possibilities based on their own interests and abilities, there is a greater probability that all parties concerned will see a growth in responsibility-taking, passion and engagement, all leading to more successful outcomes.

In family life and at school, who knows better your children than you as parents and we as educators who spend vast quantities of time with your children?   But we also know that part of this process is the student themselves.  We encourage this self-awareness, almost expect it within the framework of respect for families and institutions.  It is very much a strength of our education, and as ever we seek to work closely and impartially with students and families to help arrive at the best decisions for them.  Do come and chat.  Together, we are best placed to serve you.
