This week in BVIS Primary School – From Ms Rosy Clark 02/10/2015 02 October 2015 Moon Festival Celebrations Excited and happy children could be found at BVIS this week as we celebrated the Moon Festival. A fine, bright morning on Tuesday meant we could gather as a community on the school field for a dragon dance. As ever the Primary School children enjoyed the colourful costumes, the rhythms of the drums and the daring acrobatics. Later that morning, some of the youngest children in the school performed on stage to a packed hall. All the Year 1 and Year 3 classes danced, sang or acted, plus a group of Year 6 boys performed a modern twist to the dragon dance to the music of ‘Gangnam Style”. As always I felt so proud of the Primary children showing such confidence at an early age. Performing in front of the entire school plus a substantial audience of parents is quite an accomplishment for 4 – 7 years olds. Our celebrations here at the British Vietnamese International School continued on Wednesday with our Early Years department. In costume, the F1, F2 and F3 teachers and TAs retold the traditional Moon Festival story, before a musical game and a lantern parade followed by snacks. It was a lovely opportunity for families to enjoy time with their little ones. I would like to thank the Early Years, Y1 and Year 3 staff for all their hard work to prepare these special celebrations. Whole school events such as these are some of my personal highlights of the year as it’s a delight to see students of all ages enjoying each other’s performances and achievements.
