Year 10 International Award students complete qualifying expedition

05 April 2018

An international education here at BIS Ho Chi Minh City goes way beyond the school walls. Through extra-curricular activities, international trips and opportunities such as the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award, our students acquire real-life skills that will allow them to flourish in the 21st Century.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award and is available to all 14-24 year olds. It equips young people for life regardless of their, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements through bronze, silver and gold levels.

Just last week our Year 10 International Award group successfully completed their Qualifying Expedition in Dalat. As described by Alex Essery, the International Award Co-ordinator the students, "showed great perseverance over 2 days to finish the challenging route, which included climbing Lang Bian Mountain and carrying all their food, tents and equipment. Their team spirit and navigation skills were excellent and they are some of the fastest trekkers we have had. Congratulations to the whole group."

An important element of these expeditions is to reflect on their time and the lessons learnt:

"The camping was fun and we got to spend time with new people and get to know them." - Alessa Maitland Smith

"I really enjoyed the freedom, forgetting about other worries and the wild and natural environment." - Tam Huynh

"The trip was really enjoyable, especially with the teachers who went." - Max Jencks

Congratulations go out to all students on achieving their International Award this year.
