Principal Weekly Update 02/12/16 from Mr Mark Sayer

Time is on the wing and the end of term at the British Vietnamese International School, Hanoi looms quickly.  The list of activities in which the students and staff will be engaged is extensive and it promises to be a wonder last couple of weeks. 

Today nearly all the Year 10 students left for their Duke of Edinburgh Practice Expedition.  It is wonderful to see so many engaging in this thoroughly worthwhile activity.  They will learn so much about themselves and about others in the next few days.  My very great thanks to the staff attending this trip who are there to help develop the students in this way.

We were very fortunate to have Stephanie Song from the Juilliard School of Performing Arts.  Stephanie, who as a violin specialist is currently teaching and playing in Shanghai, attended the school for both Secondary and Primary Assemblies and to conduct a Violin Masterclass for Years 7, 8 and 9.  She was also kind enough to give a private rendition of Mendelsohn’s Violin Concerto in the Secondary staff room – an unusual venue perhaps but breathtaking nonetheless.

I do hope that all parents will come to support the different plays taking place towards the end of term.  ‘The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe’, a dramatized version of the wonderful allegorical story by CS Lewis promises to be very special, as well as the Early Years’ Christmas Performance.  Do come and join us.

The British Vietnamese International School students are very able and increasingly throwing themselves into the performing arts.  It is such a great vehicle for developing confidence in expression, performance and in physicality.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Mr. Mark Sayer - Principal
