Tet at BVIS:
1. Tet Box Appeal
We launched our annual ‘Tet Box Appeal’ on Monday in the Primary School. Every class has Tet boxes and a list of items to donate for the needy children at the Que Huong orphanage.
As we enjoy our Tet holiday time with family and friends with special food and gifts, we would like our children at the British Vietnamese International School to think of others and show how they care through giving to this special ‘Tet Box Appeal’.

Learning in Lien Ket at BVIS
We know that our parents like to learn more about the curriculum at BVIS, so we are holding a coffee morning for parents of Year 1 – Year 6 children on Thursday 25th February from 08:30 – 09:30 in the Main Hall. The coffee morning will provide you with information about our Lien Ket curriculum and give you the opportunity to gain a practical understanding of the types of learning activities your children experience here at BVIS.
We have carried out a great deal of work this year to review our Lien Ket units of study and to enhance the quality of learning in three key areas: art, history and geography. Our in-house teaching mentors led practical workshops for the other teachers and teaching assistants this week.
At BVIS, it’s not just the children who learn! We operate a continuous professional development programme throughout the academic year for our staff to ensure that the teaching and learning in our Early Years and Primary classrooms is up-to-date and high quality. Our recent CIS (Council of International Schools) accreditation report commended this and stated that:
“The VT (Visiting Team) observed a culture of learning amongst the teachers in the Primary School.”
They also noted how we recognise that our professional development “had contributed to student learning.”
