Community Service Term 2 Hummingbird Award Winners 2019

The aim of our community service programme here at the British International School, Ho Chi Minh City is to focus on our students volunteering their time to community projects rather than simply fundraising.

We want to open doors and create opportunities for students from a young age to overcome language, social, and ability barriers, while taking responsibility towards people and the environment, both on a local and global scale. This all goes towards developing positive characteristics of global citizens.

Celebrating student success is something we pride ourselves on here at BIS Vietnam. One way we celebrate success in community service across the primary school is via the Hummingbird Award.

The Hummingbird Award is presented each term to students who show excellence in community service. This could be through a variety of avenues; their work in the year group projects, in one of the community service based co-curricular activities that connect children with one of our community partners, or in our whole school community events. Each term, the teachers and club leaders are asked to nominate students who’ve excelled in these areas to be recognised for their effort, interest or progress.

Hummingbird Award Winners - Term 2

Our congratulations go to Hung in Year 2 and Mason in Year 4 who’ve been awarded the Hummingbird Medal for Term 2.


Our community partner for Year 2 is Anh Minh School for the Hearing Impaired. Over the course of the academic year, the children have weekly visits with the Anh Minh children where they share their classroom and learning. On alternate weeks, BIS and Anh Minh visit each other’s campuses and spend time doing activities typical for their school.

"Hung went the extra mile with the children from Anh Minh School for the Hearing Impaired. Hung used great non-verbal communication to interact with the children, as well as showing incredible kindness. Even when it was difficult to communicate, he persevered!  Way to go, Hung!" - Ms Samantha Baker, Year 1 Teacher and Community Service Leader

At BIS we encourage our children to not only care for other people but for the environment as well. Mason in Year 4 was recognised for going above and beyond expectations during the Year 4 residential expedition to Long Hai. While most other students were playing and splashing in the sea, Mason took the initiative to spend over an hour clearing plastic from the beach, instead of building sandcastles.

"Mason truly embodied the independent Community Spirit we strive for at BIS. Excellent work, Mason!" - Ms Samantha Baker, Year 1 Teacher and Community Service Leader
