PTG - AGM and Elections
At this time of year the PTG traditionally spends some time reflecting on its successes and achievements in readiness for our Annual General Meeting ( AGM) - this year on May 16th, a date for your diary.
The events and activities so far this year have all benefited from a wonderful team approach in our PTG Executive Committee and along with so many other members they have added to the fun and sense of achievement in bringing our community together at events throughout the year. I remain extremely grateful for their contribution to supporting arriving families and providing well informed feedback supporting our community partners and of course the spirit they add to our calendar of events.
The preparations for the AGM include elections for next year’s committee and so this is an announcement that the election process will begin very soon - please expect all the details and background in your inbox next week.
The PTG meet every Wednesday morning at 8:30am at the Secondary Campus reception - these meets are a great way to connect with other parents and share in the news from the school and hear about our PTG projects. Importantly, they are also very sociable and fun.
Please come along and join us if you can - you will learn more about your child’s learning and education in a relaxed atmosphere and who knows make new friends and connections with those who share a great thing in common - we are all BIS parents and so all of us are BIS PTG members!

2019 BIS Ambassadors to the United Nations
For the third consecutive year we are excited to be sending two BIS HCMC students to the United Nations summit in New York to represent the work our student body are doing towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
I recently introduced Nina Pham (Year 12) and Eugene Chang (Year 11) as our BIS Ambassadors to the United Nations summit for this year.
To be a BIS HCMC Ambassador to the United Nations, students need to be strong communicators, demonstrate diplomacy and debating skills, and make significant contributions to the community, MUN, or global issues groups here at BIS HCMC, and they are excellent role models who embody our school values and ethos.
Find out from Nina and Eugene themselves what makes them BIS Ambassadors.
Saigon Enterprise Challenge teams at the Spring Fair

The teams will be selling their products and discussing their chosen charities in advance of competing in the final to be held at BVIS on 4th April 2019. Please come along and support the teams.
