The British Vietnamese International School has been commended many times by visiting inspectors, Headteachers and Principals for having a clear, strong Mission Statement which is firmly embedded in school life.
In the Primary School you can see the visual reminder of our Mission Statement, known as our “Aide Memoire” on display in every room, in the Primary Foyer and printed in our school publications.
Our Friday Primary School assemblies often refer to the special words in the Aide Memoire and all the children have a copy printed in their school diaries.
Additionally, we have soft toy characters to help our children remember each of these special words with accompanying stickers which teachers can give as rewards. For example, a child who shows good enquiry skills may earn the purple enquiry sticker with the gibbon picture or a child who perseveres may receive a blue sticker with the turtle picture.
Primary School children work towards earning these stickers and filling a special page at the back of their diaries. Once 6 of the stickers have been collected, the student receives 100 housepoints for their house team.
We are delighted that the first child to earn 6 stickers this year is truly an outstanding BVIS citizen. Phan Nam Thiet Hung in class 6B has studied at BVIS since the school opened in 2011 and, in fact, received one of the very first “Star of the Week” certificates back then. He showed early promise as an excellent role model in the school and is now one of our Year 6 House Captains.
Congratulations to Hung! We look forward to more children filling their sticker page and earning lots of housepoints for their team this year.
