Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 15/12/2017

15 December 2017

It has been such a rewarding and enjoyable first term for me at BIS HCMC. I have been made to feel so welcome by students, staff and parents because starting in any new situation brings many  different challenges.

There have certainly been many new challenges for me this term but I have enjoyed  them and that is the important thing. It does not matter how old you are, learning is continuous and facing new challenges is always a learning experience. Sometimes we don’t always make the right decision but the important thing to do is to recognise that a mistake has been made and to ensure that we put procedures in place that ensure the same mistake is not repeated. As Richard Branson says, “You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing and falling over”.

I will not be the only one within the BIS community who has been challenged. Students will have faced great challenges in their day to day  learning, musical/dramatic performances and sporting competitions and they will feel that they could have done better or made a different choice. This is what learning to being better is all about. The fact is, you learn more from your failures than from your successes and our students realise making mistakes sometimes is a learning opportunity. We, as parents and teachers, are their role models and I am proud to be associated with a school that says you are not a failure if you  get something wrong, indeed you are becoming a better person for it. One final quotation from Oscar Wilde  who concisely  says “Experience is simply the name we give to our mistakes”.

It has been a wonderful final week of term with  excellent  Christmas  concerts in both our Primary campuses. It was a pleasure for me to attend both events. Secondary held their sports day in Thong Nhat stadium in District 10 and it proved to be a very successful and exciting  event.

It just remains for me to take this opportunity to wish the whole BIS HCMC community a very Merry  Christmas and a Happy New Year.
