We are now at the end of a long and busy half term. We have seen an amazing range of work and participation from our students. Today we will have a final assembly celebrating the end of our bilingual month where we have quizzes writing completion and music all showing our students talents in both English and Vietnamese.
Well done to the U14 boys and girls basketball teams who played an away fixture at ISHCMC on Monday 16th October after school. Both teams are working hard preparing for the upcoming City Basketball Championships on Tuesday 31st October. The boys played first, winning their game 36-10 with the girls cheering on the sidelines! The girls followed with another strong team performance, winning 22-8. Go BVIS!
Year 12 and 13 art students enjoyed a trip around districts 1 and 2, exploring Ho Chi Minh city’s art galleries. First-hand experience of art is an important part of the A Level syllabus, and also a crucial tool in developing and contextualising ideas within their own artwork. Students were able to see a range of work, from historical Vietnamese combat art to contemporary national and international artists. They also had ample opportunities to draw as well as access to an exclusive art library where they could gather further research for their coursework.
It was the final matches of the house football and it was rounded up with some great team performances. In the KS3 games, Hanoi beat Dalat 3-2 in a thrilling finale and Saigon completed their unbeaten record with a 2-0 win over Hue. In the KS4/5 games Hue drew 0-0 and with Saigon and a late goal by Hanoi held Dalat to a 1-1 draw.
In any sports competition there can only be one winner and therefore, this year's secondary footballing house champions are Saigon.
1st - Saigon
2nd - Dalat
3rd - Hanoi
4th - Hue
Over half term Music, Art and Drama have been working with a group of boys from the Green Bamboo Shelter and introducing them to the Performing Arts. From singing, instrumental activities, acting workshops, painting and graffiti - the boys have participated in it all! We look forward to continuing this project throughout the school year.
If you are in KS4 and would like to volunteer to help out with this project please see Ms. Hardiman, Ms. Clements or Mr. O’Donnell.
I wish you and your family a great half term break and we look forward to seeing all the students back in school on the 30th of October.
