World Clean Up Day
We're hosting our second annual World Clean Up Day Event on Saturday 21st September at our Early Years and Infants Campus between 8.45 and 11.30am and we'd love for you to join us. 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 Clean Up Vietnam initiative. If everyone in our community takes part, then just think of what can be achieved!
Not only will you be doing your bit towards cleaning up our planet you'll also gain House Points for participation which count towards the House Points total for the year. In fact, the more family members and friends you bring along, the more points you'll receive.
There will also be other activities taking place, including a rubbish sort and plastic cleaning, and Eco-friendly items and refreshments for sale. We'll be collecting plastic separately to use in our plastic shredder as part of our Precious Plastic project; find out more by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KlW_WmV3Bw
The clean-up will be managed in small teams with a staged leaving time:
- Group A will meet by 8.45am to leave at 9.00am
- Group B will meet at 9.15am to leave at 9.30am
- Group C will meet at 9.45am to leave at 10am
Please be on time for the Group you select as there will be a safety briefing before you leave.
Please note: we have a small number of clean-up kits available to borrow, however we strongly recommend that you bring your own gloves (gardening style, not plastic or rubber) and tongs for picking up the rubbish.
Children from our Primary Campuses must be accompanied by an adult. Though we have a number of BIS staff attending the event they will be taking part in the event themselves.
Please sign up using this form. If you are signing up as a family or group then please only complete one form and add all of the names in the relevant question in section. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Gate C Exit and Entry
If you are a parent that uses Gate C to enter or exit from school or who has a nanny or driver that takes your children that way, please can we remind you that you need to use the footbridge if you want to cross the road. We do not have guards on duty there to help people cross and with a lot of traffic coming around that corner quite quickly, we must keep the area clear. Please can you heed the requests from staff when they ask you to use the bridge to cross. Thank you for your support.
