Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 29/09/17

29 September 2017

Being a school Principal has many advantages. Last Friday, I attended a whole school assembly at our TX campus. It was a wonderful and colourful event where Year 2 led an assembly all about the circus, which is their current topic.  We experienced some outstanding circus acts and the children presented the assembly in an extremely entertaining way. It was also very pleasant to see so many parents in attendance supporting the children.

On Tuesday of this week, I had the pleasure of attending the Y4C assembly at APP. It was all about our Active World and demonstrated how much the children are learning about our planet. We experienced, amongst other things, a volcanic eruption, an earthquake and a tsunami. As you can imagine, it was an amazing event with great acting, dancing and special effects!  Congratulations Y4C for an impressive assembly and, once again, thank you to all the parents who supported it.

On Thursday, I had the opportunity of joining F3S from APP on their first trip off the school campus. They travelled by bus to the St Honore Bakery in District 2. We had a very enjoyable time there observing, analysing and then drawing different types of bread. We all then had the chance to purchase various types of bread. St Honore had even baked a special BIS loaf to celebrate the visit! In the afternoon I also had the opportunity to taste the different bread we had purchased with F3S at the ELC.

In Secondary, we have several groups of students in various locations across SE Asia. Our Formula 1 team (Tuan Le, Mo Doan, Nguyet Vo, Carl Chua and Antoine Archaimbault) are in Kuala Lumpur competing in the ‘F1 in Schools World Championship’, whose vision is to help students enjoy and learn from Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). What a great time to be in KL with the Malaysian Grand Prix due to take place on Sunday.

Our Head Prefects (Rosa Heuveling Van Beek, Jun Won Hwang, Riona Carriaga) are currently in Bangkok taking part in a FOBISIA Leadership Conference at  Harrow International School Bangkok with other senior students from British schools in Asia. I am sure that they will have a great experience which will further develop their leadership skills.

This weekend, on behalf of BIS HCMC, I will be attending the NAE SLT Conference. It will be held at Les Martinets School Camp in Switzerland which is owned and operated by NAE.  At the conference, we will address issues that affect and inform the development of all 46 NAE schools.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Anthony Rowlands, Principal
