Tuesday morning Year 7 and 8 were invited to meet the champion of the world of Yoyo perform. He had a clear message that if you want something badly and you work hard, it can happen for you! I am sure he has inspired a few of our students! On Thursday afternoon Years 9, 10 and 11 were given the opportunity to work with the London College of Fashion and Design, learning more about careers in this field of Design.
To finish the week, the Secondary students and staff celebrated the Moon festival in an assembly led by Ms Giang Tran and our students. It was a wonderful end to a very busy week.
Also, it has been a full week for sport with 3 fixtures.
The Key Stage 3 boys’ basketball team got off to a winning start in their 2015 campaign as they beat Wellspring International School 30 -10 in the season opener. It was a shaky start for both teams with no one getting on the score sheet in the first few minutes. Strong rebounding from Tri Dung and accurate shooting Xuan Quang allowed the Dragons to pull into an early lead. From half time, BVIS started to pull away and a strong team defence made it difficult for Wellspring to get any momentum. Special mention must go to Minh Quang who was the only Year 7 in the team, and one who held his own against more physical and experienced players. Well done, Dragons!
On Wednesday, the Key Stage 4, beat UNIS at Volleyball 2 games to 1 (26 – 24, 22 – 25, 15 – 13), which is a real achievement as UNIS is a very difficult team to beat! (read more about the game against UNIS)
On Thursday 24th September the KS3 basketball teams, both boys and girls, undertook their first away matches of the season. The girls showed huge potential during their first campaign and were unlucky not to come away with a win. During the games against to BIS and Olympia the team were good on the attack with some great individual performances by Jen and Shelly.
After a successful game earlier on in the week the KS3 boys’ basketball team struggled to meet the standard they had set themselves and work as a team. Sport can be brutal but it teaches some very valuable life lessons.
