Mr Simon Higham – Weekly Update: 13th November

13 November 2015

Dear Parents

Once again, it has been another very busy week at the An Phu Primary Campus and I have the pleasure of bringing you some of the many highlights from the last 7 days.

Phuket Football

This week saw the return of our Phuket football teams from their fantastic (albeit very rainy) experience at this year's Phuket 7s tournament. It has been lovely to receive so much positive feedback about this event. Even though there wasn't a final result, our teams were triumphant in both their hard work and sportsmanship - well done everyone. Please read the posts below to find out more details of this weekend.

Poppy Appeal 2015

There has been great support for our poppy appeal in school this week, with every poppy at AP1 being sold and worn with pride. I hope that you enjoyed watching the short video from last week's update, to explain to your children why we wear a poppy and where the funds go to.

Thank you for all of your support for this year's poppy appeal. I am pleased to announce that AP1 has raised 11,238,500VND - well done everyone!

Music at AP1

Following the successful Young Musician of the Year 2015, please ensure that you put the dates in your diary for the next two musical extravaganzas that are coming your way. Firstly, on Decemeber 10th, our cross campus concert takes place entitled, 'The Most Wonderful Time of the Year' – A Seasonal Spectacular! Also, our AP1 Carol Concert takes place on Tuesday 15th December - this is something that you mustn't miss with traditional carols, a magical setting and a selection of Christmas food on offer.

More details that showcase our music department can be found on the Music Blog.

EAL (English as an Additional Language) Department

The EAL Department enables young learners in school to further develop their academic English in order for them to effectively access the curriculum at BIS. Have a look at what enriching learning opportunities they have been experiencing so far this term, by accessing the post written by our EAL teachers

Community Play Dough Club

This term, our Community Clubs have gone from strength to strength. Year 1 and 2 students have been having lots of fun and getting to know each other better in the Play Dough Club. Read through the post from Ms Samantha Baker / EAL Teacher and Community Service Leader for more information.

Robert Swan OBE

Last weekend, Ms Dee and I attended the annual FOBISIA Senior Leaders Conference held at Tanglin Trust School in Singapore. The theme of the weekend was 'Be Inspired'. Amongst many of the speakers, one stood out for me in both his message and how this links to all of the six attributes in our Aide Memoire.


Robert Swan is the first person to have walked unaided to both the South and North Poles. He founded an organisation named 2041 that has shaped Swan’s lifetime goal – to work for the preservation of the Antarctic as the last great wilderness on earth.
From his Care, Integrity and Respect towards the world's last frontier, to his dogged perseverance and constant reflection, Robert Swan challenges us all to enquire about what we can do to make a positive difference to our environment.

Thank you for taking time to read today's weekly update. I hope that you all have a great weekend.
