It began last weekend when our U9 football teams competed in the Rising Stars Football Tournament. Finishing with silver medals, the team were fantastic in their efforts, considering many of them had not played as a team for long. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday our U11 footballers went off in different directions to take part in SISAC City Champs tournaments and once again, we were very proud of their achievements with podium finishes for every single team! More details in the article further on from our PE department.
Sunday morning saw some of our Year 6 students, along with some Year 7 and 8 students, board a plane with Mr Luke and Ms Erica bound for Thailand where they participated in the South East Asia Regional MIT Steam Festival. They were excellent ambassadors for our school and had lots of fun along the way.
This morning we waved off some of the swimmers as they travelled to Hanoi to compete in the UNIS Swim Meet. It’s one of the biggest events and the first for many of our younger swimmers. We look forward to hearing how they do next week.
Our teachers have also been extremely busy with our Nrich Maths training taking place at the Junior Campus. This continues next week at the Early Years and Infant Campus. Ms Fran Watson from Nrich has travelled from the UK and has worked with students, staff and this afternoon, parents. Each session has been really valuable for all and we look forward to continuing with Maths training throughout the year. There will be an article in next week’s update all about it.
In the middle of all that, our students have been carrying out some assessments and more details as to how we approach assessment can be found further on.
The ‘busy-ness’ continues next week with Sports Days and our Family Fun Evening next weekend. The following week sees our CIS Accreditation visit. It is true to say BIS never stands still, nor would we want to!
