Secondary Update – Mr Simon Graves – 16/12/2016

Secondary Update

We’ve had a fantastic last week of term in Secondary, culminating in another whole school staff pantomime this morning. The students were once more entertained –and ever so slightly bemused – by their teachers dressed as singing woodland animals, 2 metre-high dwarves and Mr Gunn marrying Mr Webb ( I also had to marry Mr Shooter but the less said about that the better…) Such is the magical – and extremely odd – world of the traditional Christmas Pantomime!

The week started off with the focus on the students, however, and rightly so as the under 14 table tennis squad coached by Mr Waddingham final defeated their nemesis, SIS, as well as BIS, to win the 2016 City Championships.

Our Model United Nations (MUN) club, overseen by Ms Allan and Mr Livesey, attended the D2MUN Conference at BIS over the weekend. Students each represented a different country, mixing with students from other schools in the city, and discussed such vital issues as human trafficking and universal access to safe drinking water. MUN is a great way for young people to learn vital debating and research skills, and really supports them in their university applications. This is the first year we have run the club, and it’s been a great success so far.

Our end of term assembly once again celebrated some of the many achievements of our fabulous young people.  As well as certificates for House Merits and sports, each key stage made a presentation to their student of the term. We also introduced our new – and largest ever – cohort of prefects, who will be starting their new role after the break.

After much worrying about the inclement weather (not quite as cold as an English December - but similar colour skies!) Sports Day went ahead as planned with students running, jumping and throwing their way to personal bests in a bid to gain some more much-sought-after house points. A massive thanks to the PE department for once again putting on a fabulous sporting end to a long term.

And so it only leaves me to wish each of you a very peaceful and merry Christmas and New Year. Although Christmas is not officially celebrated in Vietnam, the Vietnamese people still manage to create a wonderful Christmassy atmosphere throughout Saigon with the lights and decorations. For me, it is very much a time to celebrate our families and be thankful for all the important people in our lives. Family is so central to the Vietnamese culture, which is perhaps why it is also enjoyed so much here.

We start next term with International Week, so students will be off normal timetable and participating in some fabulous activities culminating in a Golden Globe Show on Friday, 6 January at 1.30pm. Please come along – I think you’ll be amazed at what you see!

Have a wonderful break – see you in 2017!
