International Day 2019 - Friday 18th October
It is just 4 weeks to go until the biggest day in the Secondary Campus Calendar- International Day.
Planning is already well under way with country groups bringing their enthusiasm and creativity to what will be the best International Day yet!
If you would like to be involved, join a team to represent your country, of find out more please feel free to contact Katie Walsh, Reception and Parent Liaison at Katie.Walsh@bisvietnam.com.
We will be sharing more over the next few weeks about this year’s International Day, including an exciting STEAM & Sustainability Activity - the Cultural Cardboard City Collaboration- creating a ‘Pop Up’ city in a single day!

World Clean Up Day 2019 - Saturday 21st September
At BIS we believe in Thinking Global and Acting Local, and cleaning up our area of Thao Dien is just one small pledge that we have made as part of the CleanUp Vietnam initiative.

The clean-up will be managed in small teams with a staged leaving time:
