Dear Parents

As I write, I cannot quite believe how quickly this year is passing by. Already, we are in the month of March which signifies the half way mark in an academic calendar. As I reflect on the past 6 months, I recall the many achievements, milestones and events that have since gone. At this stage in the year, take time to reflect with your children and ask them what they remember, what they have achieved so far at BVIS and what they aspire to achieve in the future. It would be great if you could share these with me as I’d be interested to find out about those ‘real’ stories that make our school a special to be. Please do not hesitate to share these with me either face to face or via email – I’m looking forward to your engagement with me.

More Primary trips!

Last week Year 4 and Year 6 went on their annual residential trips as part of our carefully planned progression of educational visits, away from home and school.

This week, our Year 3 classes travelled many hours to the jungle for an exciting day trip. As part of their Lien Ket topic on ‘Rainforests’ last term, the children raised money to support the work of an organisation called EAST (Endangered Asian Species Trust) based at Cat Tien National Park. On Tuesday, the children visited EAST to deepen their learning about the work this organisation carries out with endangered wildlife and to see the animals they had learned about in school.

At Cat Tien, the children were thrilled to see some gibbons and the black-shanked douc, finding out why they are so special. They saw the equipment used by EAST at night-time to spot the loris and the loris’ food.  The children also watched videos of young loris to see how they develop and learn to find food. Most exciting of all, BVIS children got to name some loris twins! How special is that!

For further information about the work of EAST, please visit www.go-east.org and do look out for news on Class Dojo and in our weekly highlights about the benches our Year 3 children are painting with their own designs to be placed in Cat Tien National Park.

The other trip that took place this week was the annual residential trip for Year 5 to the Mekong Delta. Once again it was my pleasure to accompany the children on this trip as they learned more about life on and by the river as part of their current Lien Ket topic, ‘Rivers’. The busy itinerary included visits to the Gao Giong ecological zone, a traditional brick factory and a floating market. The children also carried out some farming activities and built their own shelters using a range of natural materials. Raft building and mud fishing were some of the highlights of the trip.

Congratulations to the Year 3 and Year 5 children this week for their excellent behaviour and the respect they showed to the people they met during their trips. A huge thanks to the trip leaders, Ms Yen and Mr Ian, and their teams for all their hard work to provide such valuable learning experiences for BVIS students.

Art Trip 

Art Trip BVIS HCMC | Nord Anglia 2019

It has been a busy but exciting week for secondary art. On Monday, two year 9 classes were lucky to have a visit from an architect living and working in Perth. Their current 3D project is inspired by Brutalist architecture and having a professional architect in the classroom really helped them with their design ideas.

BVIS HCMC Art Trip 2019 | Nord Anglia

It’s also been an exciting week for year 12 and 13 art students, who have recently returned from a trip to various galleries in Ho Chi Minh city – ranging from the traditional Museum of Fine Arts to contemporary art spaces such as MOT+++ and the Factory of Contemporary Arts. Students were welcomed by talks from curators and artists and had access to an extensive library of art books to assist them with their A Level research tasks. The trip culminated in a visit to Estella Place where internationally acclaimed artist Von Wong has created an installation from recycled straws and plastic bags, raising awareness of the dangers of single-use plastic.

Current Year 9 Students Only :Tanzania Expedition

We believe that there is no limit to what your child can achieve and that every student can reach further with us than they ever thought possible. It is within this context, of striving for a world class programme of Outdoor and Expeditionary Learning, that we proudly offer your child the opportunity to take part in Nord Anglia’s successful Tanzania Citizenship Expedition.

This year, if selected, your child will be joining a team of fellow students and staff, from both BVIS and the Nord Anglia Education family.

The eight day expedition will take them to Majiya Chai and the Usa River in the Arusha region of Tanzania. Here they will follow in the footsteps of 45 BVIS HCMC students who took part in the extremely successful 2017 and 2018 expeditions, during which they discovered the diverse and vibrant culture of Tanzania whilst significantly contributing to the communities of Kitefu and Imbaseni.

The proposed expedition dates are Wednesday 23rd October – Wednesday 30th October (with one or two days either side for travel). If your child is currently in Year 9 (Year 10 next academic year) and they would be interested in having this once in a lifetime opportunity, please contact our expedition leaders, Mr Jon Every Jon.Every@bvisvietnam.com">Jon.Every@bvisvietnam.com or Ms Georgina Hardiman Georgina.Hardiman@bvisvietnam.com">Georgina.Hardiman@bvisvietnam.com for further details.

World Book Day  - Thursday 7th March  

Next week in Secondary we will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March.  Students are encouraged to enter into the spirit of things by dressing up as a character from one of their favourite stories.  Prizes for costumes will be awarded in the Library at lunchtime.

Worl Book Day | BVIS HCMC | Nord Anglia

We are also hoping that lots of students can donate any old and unwanted books, magazines and comics as we are hoping to be able to donate books to the Green Bamboo Shelter and help them develop a small library.  Any contributions will be gratefully received.

On behalf of our whole school community, we would like to wish you an enjoyable weekend ahead and we look forward to seeing you all again on Monday. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at Simon.Higham@bvisvietnam.com">Simon.Higham@bvisvietnam.com to give feedback on our Weekly Highlights and how it can be further improved in the future.
