There was a wonderful buzz around the school today as the students celebrated ‘Teachers Day’. I am always amazed at the gratitude, respect and affection the parents and students show to our very hard working and dedicated teachers. Just a small thank you goes a long way and I know the teachers are extremely appreciative of your support throughout the year.
On Tuesday 24th November we are launching the first of a series of evening seminars. The first seminar will focus on the contrast between the English and American curriculum and promises to be well attended and we are looking forward to delivering this exciting initiative. (register here)
Thank you to all the parents who have taken the time to attend the EYFS and Primary parent evenings. Again these have been well attended and there are two more evenings next week. We sincerely hope that you have found these evenings informative as we work collectively to support your children and their progress through this academic year and beyond.
I would like to pay tribute to our PE Department, the TA’s, teacher coaches and especially Mr Kenny who have worked tirelessly over the past 2 years to develop competitive sport here at BVIS. We are now seeing the results of this hard work pay off. In the last two weeks alone we have won the city swimming championships, the U19 girls volleyball championship and a good range of first place prizes at the recent badminton city championships. This does not happen by accident and I would like to thank all the staff and students for putting us firmly on the sporting map in Ho Chi Minh, long may our success continue.
Finally, I have now had chance to look through the feedback many of you provided at my recent breakfast meeting. I have been extremely impressed with the range of thoughts and suggestions proposed for helping to move the school further forward. In the coming weeks I shall be building an action plan around these suggestions and once complete I will share these plans with you as parents so that you know we have listened carefully and where feasible taken on board your ideas and planned appropriate actions.
I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.
