Indoor Athletics and Student Leaders

This week, we were delighted to host the Hanoi Activities Conference (HAC) Indoor Athletics tournament. Teams from Hanoi came to compete in running races and a range of jumping and throwing events in both our Secondary and Primary Sports Halls. The event was a great success with many tremendous performances from our students. However, I would just like to highlight the work of our student sports’ leaders. Students in Year 10 have been learning how to lead sports events, to coach children and to administer competition in their PE lessons. At the indoor athletics, they essentially ran the competition and did a great job. My thanks go to the PE staff for enabling this leadership opportunity, and I know how proud they were of the student sports’ leaders on the day.

History coming to life

 

Year 9 History students have been learning how to build Anderson shelters, as part of their studies into World War 2. This week, as I have welcomed students in to school at the start of each day, a range of home built shelters, made with care, precision and creative flair, have all been brought into school, demonstrating their understanding of this topic. My favorite was made by Quynh Anh in 9S who produced an Anderson shelter in cake! It took her several hours over the weekend, and was a spectacular recreation. My thanks go to Mr Gannon for inspiring this work.

BVIS Oscars  2019

This week, we were very proud to host our second annual BVIS Oscars’ Ceremony. This is held to celebrate the work of the Media Studies and Film Club students. The event was presented by Film Club members, Hoang Duy and Phuc Binh in 7I and Tran Hoan and Duc Loc in 9B. The categories were as follows:

  1. Best Opening Sequence in a Year 12 film.

Their brief was to create the titles and opening sequence (approximately two minutes) of a feature film. Three sequences were nominated:

 

  • Choco Studios – BEFORE US – Sasu, Thao and Hoang (romantic drama)
  • Bellow Production  –  JUDGE – Keisuke, Phan Anh and Arjun (gritty cop drama)
  • Tuning Production -  STRANDED – Cong, Nam and Leo (psychological horror)

And the overall winner was STRANDED

Best Short Film - Year 13.

Their brief was to create a short film, of approximately five minutes, of any genre. Two films were nominated:

  • ‘APPINESS’ – Jane and Frank - a comment on social media influence and materialism.
  • ‘Ớ?!’ – Hayley, Anna and Danny - a romantic drama challenging gender/sexual stereotypes in Vietnamese with English subtitles.

And the winner was ‘Ớ?!’

 There was also an Audience Award presented by BVIS 2018 graduate, Steve Le. This was voted for by all the students, live, in Secondary Assembly during the ceremony.

The Year 12s and Year 13 students proved that they had really worked well together to support each other’s productions by providing crew and acting talent in each other’s films. They were supportive rather than competitive and deep friendships were developed between students new to BVIS in Year 12 and those continuing from Year 11.

Congratulations to all of the students for making films of the highest quality and my thanks to Mrs McKie for organising the event and guiding the Media students through their coursework.

I hope you all have a great week ahead.
