Continuing To Care For Our Community

27 April 2017

Last week, Year 2 started their project with Anh Minh school. Anh Minh is a school for deaf children and children with hearing impairments. The project aims to provide experience of working with children with special needs and to develop communication skills. We also hope that the children here at TX will develop awareness of and acceptance for children who may be different to them and build empathy.

Children from Anh Minh school have visited TX this week following the Year 2’s visits to their school. Our students have been learning some sign language from their new friends and taking part in fun activities. As well as our Year 2 project being completed successfully, the annual community football tournament which happened on Sunday was a triumph!

The project with Anh Minh school started last year and it is unique in nature. All of the children that attend Anh Minh school are deaf or hearing impaired. Obviously, this means that our children’s communication skills are stretched to the limit – especially our non-Vietnamese speakers. After our Year 2 students visited Anh Minh school, their new friends reciprocated the visit and came to play at TX. Luckily, the children had the opportunity to learn some sign language and they could try and use this with their playmates. An important lesson to learn in life is that a smile goes a long way! Even when it is hard to communicate with someone, perhaps due to a language barrier or maybe because of a special need, we can show our intentions and feelings through body language and facial expressions. The children had a great time learning and playing with their peers and we hope they remember that sometimes a smile is the most useful method of communication.

In addition, Sunday saw the return of our annual community football tournament. This event encompasses everything we believe in and work for through our community work; providing valuable opportunities for our children to work with others and bringing together all members of our community. All three BIS campuses were involved with organising and running the event with BIS students from years 5-7 being invited. Children from five community partners also attended and played in mixed teams with children from BIS. Although it was a very hot day, all of the children put in amazing effort and played fantastically. After all of the games were played there was a tense final and team ‘Dortmund’ were named the winners of the tournament. Well done to all of the children that took part in the tournament and thank you to all of the staff, parents and community partner staff that worked so hard to make the morning a success. I’m looking forward to next year already!
