Dear Parents,

Welcome back to all our BVIS HCMC community for Term 2. On behalf of our whole school, I would like to wish you all a very happy 2020.

On Monday this week, it was great to meet all our new students and families who have begun their BVIS journey. Welcome to our school and as I outlined in my introduction to you, please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions – our doors are always open.

International Week 2020

We began our new term with our annual International Week here in the Primary school. Learning has been focussed upon different continents around the world as follows:

Year Group

Continent

Countries

Early Years

Asia

South Korea

Year 1 and Year 2

Asia and Australasia

Mongolia, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand

Year 3

North America

Mexico

Year 4

Europe

Italy and Spain

Year 5

Africa

Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, Mali

Year 6

South America

Brazil

Learning has covered topics such as: language, geography, food, the creative arts (including art and dance) and celebrations. For older children, some more complex topics have been explored such as beliefs and perceptions. For example, Year 5 children found out about the impact of trade upon the lives of people.

Teachers have supported the children’s understanding of difference and similarity by exploring their lives in Vietnam compared to the lives of children in other countries, especially in Year 6 where the children looked at comparisons between Brazil and Vietnam.

At BVIS we actively encourage our children’s development as global citizens with a Vietnamese perspective so, before the Tet holidays later this month, our children will spend some time learning more about the traditions of Tet.

New House Display Areas

Đội Nhà House Sports BVIS HCMC

It has been great to come back and see the improvements that have been made around the school over the holiday. This year we have been developing and improving our house system and there has been a considerable increase in the number of house competitions and events across the whole school. We have been very impressed with our student house leaders this year and they have asked for an area in school for them to promote their house and publicise what they are doing. We were pleased to provide this over the holiday and we are now looking forward to seeing the growth of displays within these areas.

Parents Evening

Mr Higham has already mentioned the parents’ evenings next week for Year 11, 12 and 13 students and parents.

We would like to see all parents attend these events. Please check the emails that we have sent you and sign up for appointments using the links provided.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at: Simon.Higham@bvisvietnam.com to give feedback on our Weekly Highlights and how they can be further improved in the future.
