Dear parents

I am delighted to announce that Mr Jack Rudin has been appointed to the position of Secondary Headteacher of the British Vietnamese International School, Ho Chi Minh City with effect from August 2017.

Mr Rudin is a well-qualified and experienced educator. He graduated from Manchester University with a BSc (Hons) degree in chemistry. He then went on to gain a masters degree at Cranfield University and gained his teaching qualification in physics and outdoor activities in 1998. Mr Rudin has recently been awarded his NPQH (National Professional Qualification for Headship). He has worked in a number of schools in England and internationally during his teaching career and is an experienced senior leader. He is currently the Senior Deputy Headteacher at The English College in Prague and formerly Deputy Headteacher at International Community School in Jordan. His experience in the UK included posts as a physics teacher and Head of Science. He is looking forward with great enthusiasm to the new challenges this promotion will present. Mr Rudin will be moving to Vietnam with his wife Camilla and his two young girls Anna and Alex.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming Mr Rudin and his family to the Ho Chi Minh City and working with him in his new role as we continue to develop and make BVIS Ho Chi Minh City the very best school on offer. You will have opportunity to meet Mr Rudin once he has formally started at the school in August.


This week some of our primary students attended and are participating in the FOBISIA Games in Phuket, Thailand. We have been receiving some great stories, news and photos form the event and our students are having a wonderful time. This is just another example of the benefit of being part of the FOBISIA network of schools and the opportunity this presents to our students to compete against other top international schools. Further updates will be announced next week.



I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.

Paul Holyome
