Launching the search for our 2020 BIS ambassadors to the United Nations
In the World Children’s Day assembly this week our 2019 Ambassadors to the United Nations, Nina Pham and Eugene Chang, launched the search for the 2020 ambassadors. This prestigious role represents the BIS HCMC community at the Global MUN and High Level Political Forum (HLPF) side event that takes place in New York in July. Representatives of UN nations join together to discuss progress towards the Global Goals, and the HLPF side event focuses on listening to young people and the actions they are taking around the world. This is an amazing opportunity to share everything that we do at BIS towards the Global Goals, and towards building a more sustainable future for our community and community partners.

IB Theatre Production - 'The Boy at The Edge of Everything'
A huge congratulations to our Year 12 IB Theatre students on their brilliant performance of 'The Boy at The Edge of Everything'. The play looked at the demands that are put on children in a modern educational setting, and how maybe being able to sit at the edge of space, at the edge of nothing and just BE, could be a very attractive prospect.
The studio production piece provides our IB students with an opportunity to stage a play as a class, forging strong creative bonds whilst exploring the theoretical demands of the International Baccalaureate Theatre course
