A huge thank you to all of you that have been involved in our community efforts this year...
We are privileged at BIS to have a vibrant Community Service programme of projects spanning the full spectrum of the school both within the curriculum and as extra-curricular clubs. The education element of the programme which encompasses social confidence and character development through service learning opportunities is partnered with the enthusiasm and generosity of the PTG through their invaluable support and funding. The two go hand in hand.
We as a school are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful parent community. There have been many fantastic committees over the years, led by dedicated parents and our passionate Community Service Parent Representatives. As a school we would like to officially thank all those that have contributed to the organisation of a diary of wonderful events that our community has benefited from over the years. We want to acknowledge that as a result of their hard work and energy, many children from our community service partners have had their lives enriched in some small way. So thank you.
This year the PTG raised 125,000,000VND through the Spring Fair and 32,000,000VND through their bake sale. These amazing figures have been used to support the following partners:
Binh Tho, Anh Minh, Thien Phuoc, Binh Trieu, Binh An, the Community Football Tournament, The Village of hope, E.A.S.T and Mai Am.
This year the PTG raised over 67,000,000VND at the Christmas BISzaar. The money has been used to support the wishes of Thien Phuoc Foster Home, Mai Tam House of Hope, Mai Am Boys Shelter, Two Children’s Cancer Wards (Thuy’s Dream), Binh Tho School, Kon Tum Orphanages and Thao Dien Disabled School, and Ky Quang Pagoda. They also contributed a large amount of money to the Year 12 projects which raised 82,343,500 towards Operation Smile, VinaCapital Heartbeat Foundation, Loreto, Project Aware, Poussieres de Vie.
This year the PTG gave approximately 25,000,000 VND to support Poussieres de Vie with school equipment and Thien Phuoc Foster Home for Disabled Children with special children’s beds.
Thank you parents!
