The BVIS Primary school was buzzing with excitement this week as students participated in different activities associated with the ‘Moon Festival’. Monday began with a fruit tray decoration competition, which gained a lot of interest not only from the students, but parents and teachers too. Over the course of the week, the students were able to take part in many other activities such as designing invitations, creating colorful lanterns and exploring traditional stories about the legend of Cuoi and the story of Change. The children thoroughly enjoyed the activity where they made tasty traditional moon cakes. We closed this week with the children wearing their Ao dai and performing on the Moon festival stage, full of energy and excitement to be in front of a huge audience. My thanks go to Ms Diep and Ms Trang for coordinating the activities.
Our Year 6 students are looking forward to their upcoming residential trip to Mai Chau on October 9th, so it was good to see some parents at the information afternoon on Tuesday. If you were unable to attend, then please ensure that you check the feed on Class Dojo for information. In particular, the children will be unable to receive phone calls from home during their trip as they will be heavily immersed in their activities. However, the staff will ensure that they provide you with emergency contact numbers and will continually update the Class Dojo story throughout their visit.
On a final note, remember we have a busy week ahead with the launch of ‘Book Week’ and our visit from the UK children’s author Adam Bushnell. We have a very exciting schedule planned so be sure to follow our activities through the Class Dojo feeds.
I hope you have a restful weekend.
