Personal Wellbeing Plans - Weekly Wellbeing

Welcome to the Weekly Wellbeing Blog which brings you all the latest exciting developments in the new Wellbeing Curriculum over the last seven days at the British International School Ho Chi Minh City.

Weekly Wellbeing - BIS HCMC

A plumber named Mario, a world of levels, secret routes, obstacles in the shapes of boulders, spikes and firebars and a friendship group of Yoshi, Daisy and Toad ...not your usual Wellbeing lesson! But through the use of a Super Mario Bros analogy for life, our Year 10 and Year 12 students were introduced to their own Personal Wellbeing Plans.

Over the next four weeks, students in both year groups will work closely with their Wellbeing teachers and Form Tutors to put together a detailed personal plan which focuses on developing a positive mind, positive emotions and a positive body as they continue on their IGCSE and IB journeys. Students will consider what they can do but also what support they require from home and from school to help them. This will be a working document which we will return to regularly. I hope you will take the opportunity to discuss your son or daughters Personal Wellbeing Plan with them over the next few weeks and encourage them to engage positively with this experience. 

Gender Inequality - Weekly Wellbeing

Our Year 9 students continued their series of lessons on ‘Inequalities’ which were developed in conjunction with the Global Goals team. The students were tasked with creating an impact chain to show the effect and consequences of their own chosen inequality. I was hugely impressed by the many character strengths on show in the Year 9 classrooms during this lesson - bravery, honesty, hope, teamwork and social intelligence to name a few. It is also wonderful to observe and listen to the fantastically positive views our students hold when it comes to addressing the injustice of inequality and discrimination in any form. 

You must not quit - BIS HCMC

The Year 7 students looked at the concept of ‘success’ - being ‘in flow’, the benefit of making mistakes and the importance of not quitting. Hector Gaucherand in 7H is pictured here showing fantastic bravery by reading the poem “You mustn't quit” by Edgar A Guest to his classmates. 

Building on the theme of success, I am delighted to announce the winners of the Year 8 anti-bullying video project. I was very impressed with the level of creativity shown by the students and their ability to communicate the message of ‘Stop, Speak, Support’ through their entries. 

  • 1st place: Loe Larsen Matsumoto & Nahee Kim 8H
  • 2nd place: Winnie Shooter, Hannah Weston &  Sonali Deshpande 8H
  • 3rd Place: Olivia Kang , Esther Kim, Sicilia Dalusung  & Skye Taylor 8N

Well done to everyone involved in helping to share such an important message ...stop, speak, support. The winning video will be communicated via Tutor Groups and through the Wellbeing Google Classroom pages over the coming weeks.

I hope you are having an opportunity to discuss the Wellbeing curriculum with your son or daughter and gain a greater understanding of the work they are doing during lessons and in Tutor Time. Should you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me at robert.alexander@bisvietnam.com.
