At British International School, HCMC, we provide our students with a varied extra-curricular programme, voluntary experience through a comprehensive community platform and challenging compulsory residential trips, but for some, that is not enough!

As a leading International School in a competitive environment, we recognise the importance of complementing our rigorous academic programme with experiences that students can use to develop wider life skills, such as independence and critical thinking.  

Not all learning should happen in the classroom. In order to become citizens of the world, particularly in a world where industry is changing and valued skills are evolving, students benefit greatly from life outside the classroom.  

BIS HCMC Year 10 International Award 2017 12

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award and is available to all 14-24 year olds. It equips young people for life regardless of their, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements through bronze, silver and gold levels.

Inspirational learning sometimes requires time spent outside the classroom. From the Year 3 Sleepover right through to Year 12s Scuba Diving in the Philippines, each of our compulsory residential trips are designed to build on the children’s previous experiences and will challenge them to become more independent, to develop their skills, and to try new experiences that take them beyond their comfort zone.  We attribute much of our student’s academic success both during, and beyond life at BIS HCMC to our focus on creating well rounded students.

Last weekend the Year 10 International Award group successfully completed their Qualifying Expedition by trekking for two days in Dalat, and camping out in the forest. They planned all of their own equipment and food for the expedition, navigated the route and showed great determination and teamwork to reach the top of Langbian mountain on the second day. Their expedition reports will focus on motivation and morale in groups, as well as care for the environment.

Well done to the whole group.
