School Identification Badges
With so much happening across the three campuses, we see an increase in parents and visitors on site and as such we need to be more vigilant about campus security both during the school day and at weekends. We would like to remind all parents that school identification badges must be worn, even on the weekends when attending school activities. If not, you will be asked for some form of identity and asked to wear a visitor’s badge.
If you are sending a nanny or driver, please ensure they have the school identity lanyard or some form of identity card. We thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students and school site safe and secure.

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 Nhi our receptionist at Nhi.Mai@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 Person.
Please note that CCTV cameras are in operation at all times across the campus.
Look out for our wonderful representatives from the PTG who will be on both campuses during the week selling tickets for the Family Fun Evening. Do get them early to save queuing at the gates next Saturday evening. We are expecting a great turn out! Looking forward to seeing you all there!
