Principal Update BVIS HCMC

Mr. Simon Higham, Principal

Dear Parents

This will be the final Weekly Highlights of this academic year, and what highlights there have been over a very busy and successful 3 terms.

Weekly Highlights 28/06/2019

As your child(ren) bring home their Yearbook(s), take a moment to look through it with them and talk about what have been their highlights from 22nd August 2018 through to 28th June 2019. Take time to think about how your child(ren) have grown over the year – academically, physically and socially and begin to look forward to the next academic year (and beyond) at BVIS HCMC.

BVIS HCMC Yearbook 2018-2019

We have all achieved a great deal over the last year and this could not have been achieved without the help and support from all the BVIS community. On behalf of our school, I would like to thank all parents for taking time to engage and connect with us and I look forward to looking at how we can further develop this next year. I truly believe that a successful school must engage with all of its community and in turn, the community must engage with it.

This week, there has continued to be lots of great learning happening across our school:

Global Citizenship Week through STEAM Week in Secondary

A clear part of the mission of BVIS is to develop global citizens within a Vietnamese perspective. This week in secondary, we have had a week of activities to develop our students’ awareness about global issues by giving them opportunities to collaborate on practical projects to help develop effective solutions. 

  • STEAM Secondary  (2)
  • STEAM Secondary  (1)
  • STEAM Secondary  (10)
  • STEAM Secondary  (9)
  • STEAM Secondary  (8)
  • STEAM Secondary  (7)
  • STEAM Secondary  (6)

On Monday, we presented all students with a video from the future:

We told them that there was an imaginary environmental disaster and refugee crisis and gave them four separate tasks to help the refugees. In their house teams they were asked to:

 

  • plan some refugee shelters
  • develop a menu and prepare some Vietnamese food to feed the refugees
  • create a dance to lift the spirits of refugees
  • produce a fund-raising video to generate much needed money to support the refugees.  

All students have thrown themselves into this project and the buzz around school this week has been amazing. Well done to all!

Year 11 Induction

Whilst most of the secondary students have been taking part in the Global Citizen Week, our Year 11 students have been taking part in a programme of induction lessons to give them a head start in preparing for their A level courses next year.

A levels are academically challenging and we want to give all of our future Year 12s, the best possible head start.  

In addition, the Year 11s have also been working together with the Green Bamboo Shelter to provide some beds for the boys who live here. The students have raised the money for the beds and really enjoyed working with the staff and boys from the shelter, to improve their lives.  

Year 6 Graduation

Congratulations to all of our Year 6 students who attended their Graduation event on Wednesday evening.

Year 6 Graduation Ceremony 2019

Dressed to impress, the children not only received some well-deserved awards for both academic and non-academic progress and achievement, but they also put on a great show for the audience. Throughout the evening, there were songs from the paired classes, musical pieces, dance groups, bilingual story recitals and some profound speeches from our Student Council Executive.

Events such as these truly show the spirit of our school and the confidence and progress of our children across the year. Of course, their teachers will be sad for them to leave their primary years but we all look forward to seeing them continue to thrive and flourish in Year 7.

Thank you to all parents who attended this evening event in support of their children and our school.

Uniform - Collection Information

BVIS HCMC Uniform Shop 2018-2019

Also in the letters issued to you this week, is information relating the collection of new swipe cards and lanyards for the next academic year. These will be available for collection from the Uniform Shop at the same time as when you collect your child’s new uniform.

BVIS HCMC Parents New Cards 2019-2020

A newly updated lanyard and plastic wallet will also be issued with each swipe card. From the beginning of the new academic year, it is expected that all parents wear their lanyard and swipe card when entering the school. This will allow us to visually identify designated parents who are on site, by means of the blue lanyard.

As part of our commitment to the safety of everyone within our BVIS community, I would like to remind you of the following people who you can contact if you have a concern about the welfare of any child within our school.
