This week in the Primary School

Another Production and more Exit Points!

Last week I shared news of the fabulous EYFS production of the “Three Little Pigs” with you. This week we thoroughly enjoyed the Year 4 production of “Pirates of the Curry Bean” as a finale to term two here at the British Vietnamese International School.  

My foot was tapping along to the catchy songs sung with great enthusiasm by the Year 4 children as I admired the eye-catching costumes and set. The story was fun and the lead characters all took their parts very well. The hard work of both students and staff over the last few weeks paid off as the production was impressive both in terms of quality and scale – every child in Year 4 was involved.

Large numbers of parents have been in school over the past two weeks to see the productions but also for various Lien Ket “exit points”. At BVIS, we foster parental involvement in school not just by attending events such as productions. We also encourage parents to extend their understanding of how their children learn at BVIS through ‘having a go’ themselves at coffee mornings and exit points.

It is widely accepted that parental engagement with school has a large and positive effect on children’s learning.

Parents and families play an important role in supporting their child's education. Research has shown that when schools and families work together, children do better, stay in school longer, are more engaged with their school work, go to school more regularly, behave better, and have better social skills. Parent engagement also results in longer term economic, social and emotional benefits.” (for more: https://www.education.gov.au/parent-engagement-children-s-learning)

There have been many occasions this past term for you as BVIS parents to get involved: parents evenings in March; Tet celebrations when we reinforce the importance of Vietnamese culture in school; residential trip information meetings; collaborative activities with your children at “Lien Ket “exit points”; class assemblies; sports mornings … and much more! We hope you feel this has been beneficial for you as parents as well as for your children in their learning journey at BVIS.

Primary Swimming City Championships

The Primary U8 and U11 swim teams competed in their annual swim city championships this week with the C team swimming at the Australian International School on Tuesday and the B team swimming at Saigon South International School on Wednesday.

Both teams competed well during what was a very long and tiring day. I am pleased to say that all swimmers improved either on their season’s best or personal best swim times showing that the their hard work and effort in training has been worth it.

C Team
