Dear Parents

Thank you to all parents who have engaged and connected with our online Parent Meetings, both this week and last, across Primary and Year 10. Your involvement in these meetings is vital to ensure that we continue to offer the very best educational opportunities for all students across the school as we work in partnership with you.

Please do not hesitate to continue to engage and connect with your son/daughter’s teachers in order to both further understand how you can support their learning at home.

Reminder for Year 6 Parents

Following the successful Year 13 Graduation last Saturday, I would like to remind all Year 6 parents of the Year 6 Graduation Event that will be held in the Main Hall on Tuesday 23rd June from 6.00pm.

Nurturing Global Citizens and a Vietnamese Perspective

At BVIS, we fully understand that a truly global citizen needs to have the right knowledge, skills and global perspective. At the same time, they also need to be absorbed within their country’s culture and traditions to succeed in life and make positive contributions to the outside world.

Primary Update BVIS HCMC

Ms Rosy Clark, Head of Primary

Throughout Year 6, there are many learning opportunities that are used to prepare the children for the challenges of being a Secondary student. This week, two of these occasions took place:

Eco-project presentations

In Term 3, Year 6 students are tasked with an independent, cross-curricular project that is designed to bring together many skills and areas of learning at the very end of their Primary school education. IT, geography, design, literacy and maths skills, as well as the children’s ‘global citizenship with a Vietnamese perspective’ all form part of this project. The children are required to design their own eco-park in a location of their own choice in Vietnam, taking into account the effect of their eco-park on the local environment, society and economy.

On Wednesday afternoon, groups of Year 6 students presented their eco-parks in either English or Vietnamese to panels of judges and answered questions about their projects, justifying their designs, choices and ideas. Assessment rubrics were used by the judges in each group to ensure consistency across the year group.

By combining the results from Wednesday’s presentations with the children’s work in class during the past few weeks, an overall winner will be decided and announced at the Year 6 graduation in the final week of term.

Year 6 transition day

Year 6 students can sometimes be anxious about moving to Year 7 so a special day is provided at BVIS towards the end of the academic year to expose the children to many of the changes they will encounter next academic year.

BVIS HCMC Year 6 Transition Day 2020 (23)

The transition day took place on Thursday in the Secondary part of the building, with Secondary teachers and senior members of staff. The children spent the day in their Year 7 house-based forms and one of the highlights of the day was the opportunity to visit the Sunken Garden café at breaktime! By the end of the day’s transition activities, Year 6 were clearly feeling excited about next academic year. We hope that the online parent meetings have provided families with the transition information they need too!

Graduation

Last Saturday we held the secondary school Graduation for the class of 2020.  Due to the restrictions caused by Covid 19, this year we held the ceremony at BVIS and it turned out to be our best graduation yet. We had great food, warm words from our teachers for the graduating class but the highlight of the evening came from our students. We were able to showcase their art work and entertained by 3 fantastic musical performances from; our school choir, student band “The Darrow” (featuring Ky Dan) and one final piece that was composed and played on the piano by Khoa. We are very proud that Khoa is our first Year 13 student to complete A level Music.  Finally, to round off a great evening Khoa, Ky Dan,  Noel and Dieu Anh delivered some moving and speeches about their time at BVIS – what a night of celebration!

Maths competitions

Over the last few weeks our Year 13 Maths students have been planning and preparing to run Maths competitions with all KS3 students over the course of one week. This week, their hard work and dedication finally came to fruition as they successfully executed the competition! Our KS3 students really enjoyed themselves, working in house teams and testing their problem-solving and time-management skills. More impressive however was the year 13 students’ conduct, whether it be problem-solving on the day, contacting teachers or arranging hundreds of students into appropriate groupings. The skills that they have developed over the last few weeks will be crucial for their further studies beyond BVIS, and we are very proud of them!

BVIS HCMC Maths Competition 2020

Champion of the week

This week has seen yet another fantastic effort with the awarding and collecting of house points. There have been some great achievements from many different students across Secondary but it was Mai Lam in 10V who won the title of BVIS Champion of the Week after receiving more house points than anyone else. It was also great to see that Mai Lam received house points from all of her subjects so has shown to be making maximum effort across the board and not just in one single subject. Well done Mai Lam!
