Books and singing - two of my favourite things!

We have have had a week of joy at BVIS this week. We have celebrated book week at school with a huge number of activities taking place in and out of lessons to celebrate the wonderful world of books and reading.

There were two ‘dragons den’ events where student and staff had to convince the ‘dragons’ to choose the book that they thought was the most essential for all teenagers. Thus we had The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole winning against The Stranger, The Maze Runner and The Catcher in the Rye. In the second event the dragons chose Running Gold over Skellig and Lord of The Flies. The library was packed with people watching this event and the speakers spoke with passion about their books.

Our Year 7s had the opportunity to hear from and talk to Adam Bushnell, an author of children’s books from England. Adam used to be a teacher and he was able to speak to the students in a way that really conveyed his love of books, it was really inspiring to hear from him.

All week in the dining hall we have had the BVIS books being written. In English, Korean and Vietnamese, each day students have been adding to it, sentence by sentence, to create a unique story.  We have also had a live spelling bee competition - congratulations to Duong Khanh Linh and Nam HoSeong for coming joint first. Some of the words were incredibly difficult to spell, and all who took part were very  brave. Also twice in the week, over the tannoy, we announced a ten minute time for everyone to ‘drop everything and read’ - and that is exactly what everyone did - whether they were in Science or Drama - everyone stopped and just read.

My thanks to Mr Anderson and all of the English and EAL team for putting in the hard work to make this week a true success.

On Wednesday we had the wonderful Song For Peace performance. As I have mentioned before in these articles, the students have been practicing hard and performed “What's So Funny About Peace Love and Understanding” in full voice with a terrific student band playing the music. My thanks to Ms Metcalf Smith and Ms Tulloh for organising this. Community singing really does lift the spirits.

 

Lastly I would like to thank Mr James Shaw and the Maths team for organising the inaugural Year 7 Hanoi Maths  festival - hosted here at BVIS  last weekend. It was a great occasion of team activities and maths challenges and I know that all the students participating had a good time.

I hope you all manage to find a good book and have a great week ahead.
