Mr Simon Higham Weekly Update 12th June

12 June 2015

Today, you have received your child’s End of Year Report that evaluates achievement and effort across the identified curriculum areas. Please take time to read this with your child and in particular look at the targets that have been identified for their future learning.

Next week, on Wednesday 17th June, I would like to invite all parents to come into school and visit your child’s classroom between 2.00pm and 3.00pm. This will be a chance for your child to guide you through the work that has taken place this year. A follow up letter will be sent to all parents as a reminder on Monday.

In addition to today’s report, you have also received your child’s finalised class allocation for the forthcoming academic year, including the class teacher, class name and room allocation. Thank you for your support within this process.

On Saturday 30th May, it was a privilege for me to attend our Year 13 graduate ceremony at the Rex Hotel to mark the transition of these students from BIS. Ms Lara Vu from UNICEF was the guest speaker, with reflections on the past, present and future from Mr Richard Dyer and the outgoing Head Boy and Head Girl. The word integrity that sits at the top of our aide memoire, was an on-going theme throughout the morning as it helps us all, whether you are 5 years old or 18 years old, to live our lives in the manner that is expected of all students that attend the three BIS campuses in HCMC.

As a Head Teacher, it is always very satisfying to see so many young adults being both academically challenged and socially equipped to enter the next phase in their exciting lives and knowing that both their Primary and Secondary years at BIS has allowed them to be where there are now and attend the world’s elite universities across the globe. Do not underestimate the journey that these students have undertaken and I look forward to seeing the next generation of graduates moving through our school, equipped to make a positive difference in the wider world.

This week the final four year 6 classes returned to school from their adventures in Malaysia. It has been great to hear about the many challenges that they had to overcome and the many friendships that had been strengthened and forged during the residential. 

Congratulations to all 240 children that took part in the AP1 Summer Concert on Thursday, entitled 'Name That Tune’. With the aim of making music accessible to all, the children put on a memorable show with both choir and orchestral pieces from Take That to The Carpenters. The concert concluded with a rousing rendition of ’Hey Jude’ from The Beatles. All of the audience joined in with the chorus whilst waving their arms in appreciation - well done everybody! 

Good luck to all children who are taking part in the BIS Aquathlon on Saturday. 

Finally, I look forward to seeing you all on Monday 15th June for our first ‘Messy Hands’ art exhibition at AP1. Have a great weekend!

Mr Simon Higham, Head Teacher
