Dear Parents

On Monday next week, we celebrate Children’s Day and it is befitting that this day falls on the day that our school becomes complete again with our F1 students.BVIS HCMC EYFS teacher Tara Mần non quốc tế TPHCM

In talking with colleagues across our Nord Anglia Education family and helping them to prepare for their school opening, I have described to them that having children back in school is like our heart starting to fully beat again. With the return of F1 students on Monday and the start of Fundinotots on Tuesday, our school heart is now beating stronger than ever across the whole of our community.

Again, I would like to thank all parents for your support during our campus closure and phased return to school. We will continue to practice social distancing across the school and control our drop off and pick up procedures. All students are still expected to wear masks in open areas and continue to wash their hands regularly and use hand sanitizer when entering school, our classrooms and during lunch and break times.

Please be reminded that school will continue to finish at 4.05pm on Monday to Thursday each week and on Friday, school will finish at 3.05pm as normal.

The development of the whole child is something that we are proud of across our school

As you will read in Ms Rosy’s Highlights, this week our Year 6 students were the first to have their ‘Big Day in With Sleepover’ to give additional opportunities for learning following their return to school. Year 5, 4 and 3 children will be given similar experiences over the coming weeks. In addition, our Year 1 and 2 students are looking forward to their teddy bear’s picnics to again, give opportunities that go further than our published curriculum.

It is important to note that on Saturday 13th June, we will be saying farewell and ‘good luck’ to our Year 13 students at their Graduation Ceremony that will be held at school. This is an important event that celebrates the achievements of every student and helps to draw a line under what has been a challenging year for this cohort of examination students. 

BVIS HCMC Graduation Class of 2020

Events such as these (with more to come between now and the end of the year) should be seen as ‘moments in time’. Together with the content and skills that we learn, events such as these are engrained in our memories and help to further define who are children are and allow each and every one of us to reflect upon what we want to become.

Looking back, other experiences this year have included the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award,  the EYFS Sports Morning, the NAE Games and many more.

This weekend, please find time to talk with your child(ren) about their ‘moments in time’ and ask them what they want to achieve next. This will encourage reflection and enquiry and allow each child to look back with fondness whilst also looking forward with anticipation and determination.

It would be great if you would share these reflections with myself and your child’s class teacher.

Love BVIS HCMC 2019

Sleepovers

At BVIS, we are constantly looking at ways in which we can go the extra mile and give our children the enriched learning opportunities that they deserve. During the school closure, it is important to note that although our school and learning remained open to all, our children did not have the chance to socialise face to face with their friends and be able enjoy the company of others that children both seek and thrive upon. Therefore, BVIS is providing a themed “Big day in with sleepover” at school for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

We began our series of sleepovers this week with Year 6. Their theme was “Go Green” and all children were given a special “Go Green” T-shirt as a souvenir of this event. The evening began with swimming and cooking. Later on, after dinner, a talent show took place in the school’s theatre before bedtime in the sports hall.

After breakfast and assembly on Friday morning, Year 6 participated in a house competition comprising the following activities: flash mob with Ms Yen and Ms Khuyen; puzzles with Ms Phuong; shuttlecock with Mr Dan; STEAM lego with Ms Rachael.

We hope that the BVIS's "Big Day in with Sleepover" was a truly memorable experience for Year 6. Huge thanks to all the teaching assistants, teachers and PE staff who gave their time to take part in the sleepover at this late stage of the academic year.

Year 13 Graduation

In the last few weeks, we have been planning how to celebrate this year’s Year 13 graduation. It was uncertain whether we would be able to hold the event this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, after all their hard work we were determined to find a way to make this happen. We were very glad to send out an invite last week to all the Year 13 parents to come to this event. We are looking forward to celebrating the achievements of our Graduates on the 13th of June. If you are a Year 13 parent, please make sure you have responded to the form to let us know that you will be attending.

Y11, 12 and 13 Art Trip

This week, art students from Years 11-13 visited BIS to see their IB final exhibition, where they saw a great variety of fantastic work in a range of media and materials. Year 11 and 13 have now started planning BVIS’s own exhibition of artwork from across the secondary school, whilst Year 12 are beginning the second year of their A Level studies so hopefully all can take some inspiration from their visit. We also visited the Factory of Contemporary Arts where students saw an exhibition of professional fine artists’ work, focusing their notes and sketches on the way the work was curated and presented. I am very excited to see the BVIS final show in a few weeks’ time!

BVIS Champion of the Week

Well done this week to Vinh Phuc (Peter) who achieved a huge 30 house points last week and is therefore the BVIS Champion of the Week. Peter is a student who always reflects our Aide Memoire characteristics and always demonstrates politeness and courtesy to all members of our school community so this award is thoroughly deserved. Well done Peter!

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:
