HCMC International School Monologue Competition 2017

This week, five talented pupils participated in a monologue competition with six other International schools in the city. The monologues were a mix of Shakespeare, contemporary, scripted and devised and all were performed with energy and charm.  The competition was fierce, the talent in the city was at its best and unfortunately, our students did not win in their categories. However, all pupils that took part used courage, resilience and incredible skills in communication developed through involvement in Drama curriculum - and they deserve massive congratulations.  I have known the students for very little time but was so very proud of their achievements, particularly when the judges spoke with me about how close our candidates were to the top spot. I look forward to next year’s competition!

Last Friday Year 11 iGCSE Geography students went on their urban fieldwork trip. In the morning they conducted investigations along a transection at Hai Ba Trung and an environmental impact assessment at Nguyen Hue. They then travelled to Phu My hung to practice land use mapping at Crescent Mall before completing a transection in a suburban residential area there. This will all prove invaluable practice for their summer geography examinations.

Last Saturday some of our KS5 maths students (plus 2 year 11s) took part in the Saigon Senior Maths Competition where they worked in teams against other International schools in HCMC.  There were plenty of opportunities to showcase their maths skills in interesting and unfamiliar contexts both as a team and an individual.  Dang (13V) came in the top 10 out of 100 of the best students across the city.  The top team placed 3rd in the cross number round and came 7th overall.

Participants:   Dang (13V), Ngoc (13V), Nguyen (12B), Nha (12I)

                        Harry (13V), Minh (13I), Han (13I), Ha(13I)

                        Minh(12V), Hai Linh (11B), Huong (11V)

Also on Tuesday it was the UKMT senior maths challenge, where some of our best mathematicians from Yr 11,12 and 13 took an individual challenge to test their application of their maths knowledge.  Their answers have been sent to England for marking and we eagerly await the results.
