It’s been an incredibly busy first term of the year right across the school, with visiting explorers, mindfulness coaching, inter house competitions, sports matches, not to mention a visit from CIS! I think everyone is ready for a well-earned break.
It was great to celebrate just some of the achievements of our young people in our prize giving assembly this week. Many congratulations to all for their amazing efforts.
Secondary Award Winners Term 1
Sports Day is always a great day, and this year as no exception. With the house competition so close this year, every point was keenly fought for. Not everyone can win a race, or throw or jump the furthest, but it’s so nice seeing everyone trying so hard with smiles on their faces.
And of course the best way to end any term is by showcasing the many talents of our students through BVIS has got Talent. As I write this, the winners are still to be announced but I have no doubt that the judges will have an incredibly difficult decision to make.
Next half term is a very short one – we start back with International Week for Key Stage 3 students who will be developing their internationalism through all their subjects. A week and a half later, years 11-13 will be undertaking their mock exams, whilst our younger students jet off to Mui Ne, Dalat, Hoi An and, for the first time, Cambodia. With Tet Fair shortly after there’s no time to relax!
And so I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Two weeks in which to recharge and enjoy being with families and friends, and I look forward to seeing everyone again in 2016.
