There is only one possible subject to focus on this week: Tet at the British Vietnamese International School, Hanoi. The school came to life last Sunday as the whole community celebrated the Tet Fayre. It was so rewarding to spend time with you all. Thank you to everyone who participated, but we must thank the countless hours and organisation contributed by our Marketing Department, administration and teaching assistants. Thank you.

On Wednesday, EYFS had their very own Tet celebrations and were joined by the vast majority of parents. We enjoyed the singing and dancing of all the EYFS children who looked amazing in their outfits, traditional to Vietnam and Korea, all streamed live on Facebook. The Cyclo bike was extremely popular outside, as were all the activities. This included some of the children who created their own Lion Dance, an example of independent learning choices being made, all whilst having great fun. Thanks to our EYFS team and thank you also to the Primary team who will be celebrating next Tuesday. You are all invited to the Primary Sports Hall at 1.30pm and we hope to see you all there.

Personally for me, this is the best time of year in Vietnam and I thoroughly enjoy being part of the Tet celebrations. As a Primary school, we truly care for each other, respect each other and look after each other – we are one big family.  The family values that the children have learnt throughout their lives, at school and at home, the family values that are clearly evident during Tet, are the values that the children will live their lives by. I, for one, am very proud of them. I truly feel part of a very special Vietnamese family.

Chúc Mừng Năm Mới!
