On Wednesday this week, Key Stage 3 students put their thinking caps on and became engineers for the day. This was part of a STEM day (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). They had to design the car that would go the furthest. It was really interesting to see their designs and watch the races in the afternoon. To see more about this see Mr William Murray-Smith’s article.
On Wednesday, it was also Transition Day and we welcomed Year 6 for a day into Secondary Section. They first came to an assembly, when we continued to talk about what the differences between Primary and Secondary and answered some of their questions. They then spent time in lessons studying Vietnamese, Vietnamese Humanities and English, so that they could meet a number of the staff.
On Thursday, many certificates were given out in Assembly. I am so proud of the achievements and efforts of Secondary students at BVIS. It is so important to celebrate all their successes from throughout the year. Subject prizes were also given out.
On Thursday afternoon, we held our first ‘BVIS Has Got Talent’ house competition. And all I can say that at BVIS we really do have talent! Well done to our winner Minh Khoi from Year 10 from Hue House! We were fortunate to have 2 guest judges with artistic backgrounds to help us judge such a tough competition!
We are very sad to say goodbye to Ms Shelley, Ms Crocker, Ms Muir and Ms Gray. The students organized a lovely party for them on Friday morning. We wish them all the best for their futures in their different destinations.
