To ensure our children are always safe, please do take note of the following message that is displayed in the EY&I campus:
Permission to leave slip
We would like to remind all parents that school identification badges must be shown and worn at all times when on any of our three campuses (including weekend and evening events). If not, you will be asked for some form of identity and be required to wear a visitor’s badge.
If you are collecting a child without the ID card, you will need to visit Reception for a ‘Permission to leave slip’ before collecting your child from the classroom and exiting the campus together.
We thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students and school site safe and secure.
Health and Safety
Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFM)
Please note that there has been a country wide increase in cases of Hand Foot and Mouth disease, dengue fever and Influenza A. Here at school we are taking all the necessary precautions including encouraging extra handwashing, providing extra hand sanitizers and more deep cleaning of classrooms and learning spaces. Please can we encourage you to take the necessary precautions at home also and if your child does become ill, please keep them at home until symptoms have passed.
Mobile Phone Numbers have Changed
According to Decision 798/QD-BTTTT dated 25th May 2018, which was issued by the Ministry of Information and Communications, from 15th September 2018, 11-digit phone numbers have changed to 10 digits. It is the first part of the number that has changed, the remaining digits will stay the same.
The changes are based on the following rules:
Old Network Code
New Network Code
If your phone number has changed, please contact Ms Palm (Dabassawinee.W@bisvietnam.com) to inform us of your new 10 digit number.
Please can you let us know as soon as possible as the old numbers will stop working on Wednesday 14thNovember.
As in all major cities petty crime does occur, as a reminder to all of us please always take care of your personal belongings, especially when walking across roads and along the pavements.
Safeguarding at school – it’s everyone’s responsibility
It is every parent’s wish to capture memorable moments on camera of their child at school either performing in an assembly, on their birthday or simply playing with their friends on the playground before the start of the school day. Any photos that are taken by parents on personal devices must be kept private. They must not be shared publicly on social media or between non-family members such as, other parents in the school. By following these guidelines, we ensure our BIS safeguarding policy is adhered to and that our children are kept safe.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
If, during your visit to school, you have any reason to be concerned about the safety of a young person, please contact the Designated Safeguarding Leader.
On Friday, we had our first sitting of the ‘Finer Diners’. If our children are seen making good choices in the canteen, they will have their name written into the ‘Golden Book’. What sort of good choices? Being polite, remembering to say please and thank you, making healthy choices and eating all their fruit and vegetables. Each week, 6 children will be chosen from the Golden Book to be the ‘Finer Diners’. Each will choose a friend who will join them for lunch at a special table with special guests.
Congratulations to Darren, Minseo, Christine, Van, Brian and Jacob who were the first ever EY&I Finer Diners!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Ian Battersby, Head of the Early Years and Infant Campus
