Principal Update BVIS HCMC

Mr. Simon Higham, Principal

Dear Parents

On Monday this week, it was great to welcome back our Year 1 students who, I am pleased to report, have settled quickly and effectively back into school life. Already, teachers have started to assess and evaluate their academic progress during Virtual School and are already utilising curriculum time, including the extended day to ensure that any support that is needed, is given.

Welcome back F3 and F2 students next week

We are looking forward to welcoming back our F3 and F2 children back into school next Monday, 25th May. Please ensure that all parents of EYFS (F1, F2 and F3) are up to date with the new drop off and pick up procedures that have been shared with you by Ms Rosy and the EYFS team.

Please take time to read though this post for our 05 top tips for parents to ease the anxiety that young learner’s may have as they prepare to return back-to-school.

Welcome from Principal BVIS HCMC

On Thursday this week, all EYFS parents received a letter from me outlining our plan to offer some extended learning opportunities for our very youngest children. In recognition that children in F1, F2 and F3 will return to school much later than all other year groups, we have arranged for our school to be open for them to access after the end of Term 3. A special programme based upon the 3 prime areas of learning is being prepared for all those who would like to join. These areas include: 

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development

During the campus closure, it has been the most challenging for our youngest children to fully develop their communication, social and physical skills and we are confident that through these additional learning opportunities, we can further support in these crucial areas of early childhood development. 

Please ensure all parents of F1, F2 and F3 sign up using the link provided on the letter. The deadline for sign up is Friday 29th May which is important for us to adhere to so that we can staff the programme safely and appropriately.

Class of 2020

This academic year has been unprecedented and challenging for all students across the globe – especially our 13 examination students. Nevertheless, our Class of 2020 have continuously shown their independence, resilience and exceptional efforts to complete their A Level courses and receive offers from their dream University destinations.

BVIS Year 13 back to learning

For all parents of Y13, please look out for information coming soon to your inboxes from our Secondary team, regarding next month’s Graduation Ceremony.

Summer School 2020 Update 

It is with regret, that this week, I have had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Summer School. The decision was not taken lightly and we are now looking forward to when it can resume again in the Summer 2021. We will shortly be writing to all individual parents who had signed up, with all further details.

Thank you

I would like to thank all of our students, parents and teachers in their support of our extension of the school day for one hour to finish at 4.05pm on Monday – Thursday each week.

Students have been picked up promptly from school which has allowed us to effectively deep clean the campus at the end of each day. This provision will continue in school until the end of the published academic year.

Please be reminded that on Fridays, school will finish at 3.05pm as normal.

Extraordinary achievement during BVIS Virtual School Experience

On Monday we welcomed Year 1 back to school and within minutes I had a visitor in my office sharing his extraordinary achievements of the past months. Little Khong Minh in class 1V proudly shared his reading diary with me and his record of 90 books read during virtual school!

What an amazing achievement, demonstrating the commitment of both his teachers and his parents to support quality learning, although the school building itself was closed for many, many weeks.

Some other examples of extraordinary learning during our virtual school experience are:

  • In Year 2 and Year 4, brothers Luke and Daniel enrolled in BVIS even though we were in the middle of our virtual school! Both are learning English and Vietnamese to become trilinguals and were welcomed to BVIS by their classmates and teachers online before beginning their learning via our virtual school. It was such a pleasure to meet them in person last week when Years 2 and 4 returned to school.

  • In Year 3, we have witnessed a complete change in one of our learners, Khai Lam in class 3B. During our virtual school, teachers, parents and student formed a powerful partnership for learning and what an incredible difference this made. Every single day, Dad ensured that this young learner was at his desk ready for the day and that he participated as fully as possible in the learning provided by his teachers online. As a result of this, Khai Lam has returned to school alert, engaged and demonstrating just how much he benefited from the BVIS virtual school experience. Well done Khai Lam… and Dad!

  • One of our online tools at BVIS is “Reading Eggs” which was used extensively by teachers and students during virtual school. In Year 5, special mention goes to two students for their extraordinary achievement in reading. Ken in 5S read 105 books and Hoai Anh read 119 books during the BVIS virtual school experience. Reading is one of the core skills in learning so congratulations to these two students for working so hard online.

  • Finally, Ms Phuong, Year 6 Leader is very proud of class 6S and the 100% attendance by 6S students in ‘live lessons’. As a whole, Year 6 were particularly good learners during our virtual school, but some students stood out for their exceptionally positive, hardworking approach. The following students participated in 100% of the learning tasks provided by their teachers and consistently responded to feedback they were given to improve their learning: Hoang Nam 6S; Bao Nam 6S; Tuong Anh 6S, Brian 6I and Minh Anh 6I. Congratulations children!

Secondary Update BVIS HCMC

Jack

Mr Jack Rudin, Head of Secondary

This week we have been able to ease some social distancing that we had in place in line with revised government advice. This means that students are now able to play some sports again at lunch time and it has been a pleasure to see them running around and enjoying themselves.

We have noticed a huge rise in the efforts of the children since they have been back in school and this week. Last week alone the students were awarded 762 housepoints for their efforts inside and outside of the classroom – what an excellent achievement! The Student of the week for last week was Gia Ngoc 8I.

BVIS Student of the week May 2020

Gia Ngoc 8I

The tutor group with the highest number of house points each week gets the privilege of either punishing or rewarding a member of staff. They can either vote for a teacher to get a bucket of ice water over the head or a free smoothie. This week 8I won the privilege to vote and here is a video of the result of their choice.

This week the teachers of years 11, 12 and 13 have been working hard on preparing the IGCSE & A Level assessment information to go off to the exam boards so that they can award grades to them this year. This is something we need to do this year as Covid 19 has prevented the normal process of examinations set by the exam boards. I would like to thank the teachers for all their hard work and would like to take this opportunity to wish the students good luck with their final results that will be published over the Summer.

Year 11, 12 and 13 are now in the process of beginning their extended curriculums that we have designed to take them beyond the work that they would normally cover this year. This is a great opportunity for them to get ahead and prepare for next year's courses.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our students remains the number one priority at BVIS HCMC. Should you have a concern for the welfare of any child in our school, please refer to our Safeguarding poster below:
