Last week the PTG hosted two lunch events for parents at Pendolasco restaurant. This was our last set of parent lunches for the school year and very well attended. These lunches are a great opportunity for parents to meet with other parents in their child’s year group as well as to socialise within the school community. My thanks to the PTG for putting this event together.

If you are interested in taking up a role on the PTG please e-mail susanwilson@bisvietnam.com and she will be happy to chat to you about the role of the PTG in the school and how you can help out.

There is plenty more action being implemented across all three schools that we will sharing in the weeks to come.
