In our weekly assembly the children wait excitedly to discover just who has been the winning house that week. We are all part of the BVIS Hanoi family but the house system adds another layer for the children to belong to. They have a strong allegiance to their own house and it is incredible to see the pride they have supporting it. This system also teaches key lessons in sportsmanship and integrity as not every house can win. Throughout the year many events are held; artistic, charitable and sporting and these would not run without the energy and enthusiasm of the House Leaders in each House.
All of our new House Leaders are aiming to win but behind all this is a strong desire to develop the independence and positive competitive nature of your children. They will always need to work as part of a team and cooperate whilst wanting to achieve and succeed; the House system is a great platform for this. Good luck to all our houses this year and to the new staff leading them.
