Aide Memoire

Perseverance, Enquiry and Reflection, along with Respect, Care and Integrity, being all encompassed by Global Citizenship and Vietnamese Perspective, our students endeavour to develop these essential elements of a successful individual in preparation for a lifetime of fulfillment and opportunity. Two of our Year 6 students have met the ambitious target of being recognised as demonstrating all eight characteristics since the beginning of this school year. Ae Sun and Grace one of our Vice Presidents and Creative Curators, respectively, have been noticed by teachers demonstrating each of these characteristics; a fine achievement that deserves recognition by all. Congratulations, Ae Sun and Grace.

Wellbeing

At BVIS we focus on all aspects of the development of a child. This not only includes academic skills, knowledge and understanding, but also wellbeing and mental health. Our programme for Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is a key driver to ensuring our students are provided with the forum to explore, ask questions and understand their feelings and emotions. In addition, teachers and teaching assistants are trained to deliver concepts that deserve sensitivity and time taken to connect and engage with to ensure our students develop into all rounded individuals and are prepared for the future ahead.

As a parent, our teaching team are always available for you to discuss the elements of wellbeing and mental health of your child’s development. Support in this way is always advantageous; working together as a team for your child has the most positive impact on development and progress. If you are ever concerned or have questions in this field, then please do contact your class teachers, we are here to support; Connect and Engage.

Global Campus update for Secondary

I want to say a huge well done to all students who engaged with Global Campus last term. The work produced was amazing and I am impressed at our students’ dedication and creativity. An extra big well done to Hai in Y9 and Eddie in Y11 – both of which are top in Vietnam for Global Campus! Hai is the top student for interaction on the platform, and Eddie is the top Secondary student for posts and contributions.

BVIS HCMC Global Campus

This upcoming Tet holiday we want as many of our students as possible to enter the Virtual Musician of the Year competition and the Visual Arts competition, and if you need any information about either of these then please see Ms Mumby-Cole, Ms Hardiman or Ms Hannah in Primary.

BVIS Secondary Champion of the Week

Congratulations to Peh, Jun Hao (David) in 7I, who is this week’s Champion of the Week. He managed to achieve 40 housepoints last week which is amazing! Well done David! Good luck to you all for this week – let's see who comes out on top for their house!

Mock Exams

Over the last two weeks mock exams have taken place with all of the Year 11, 12 and 13 students eagerly waiting on their results. The mock exams are an important mid-course assessment point where students can practise crucial exam techniques and also teachers get a ‘real-time’ assessment to see where students are with regards to their subjects. Once the exam results are out, subject departments will put in place support programmes to help students further improve to achieve their full potential.

Y12 Business Studies (4)

From now until the summer exams all students know that they need to continually seek guidance from their teachers, who have the experience of guiding many students in the past to exam success. Next week there are also parent/teacher consultations and I would urge all parents to come into school to meet with their teachers so that we can all support the students as much as possible.

For 6th form students, if you have any questions or worries please contact your child's tutor in the first instance and they will pass the queries on to the appropriate person.

Humanities

This term Year 7 have been looking at what happened in England in 1066. They have been particularly interested in the events of the Battle of Hastings. In order to try and make these events come to life, our students broke up the Battle of Hastings into a few key moments and acted them out. They were very creative with their use of space and the movement of their bodies. It was very interesting to see!
