It has been a full week of events across the primary campuses. Thank you to all the parents and other community members who have contributed through the Global Café, finding costumes, producing dances or helping out at the international experience. A special thank you to Ms Mary and Ms Phuong (her PA) who along with Mr Chris and Ms Huong at Juniors, have worked so hard to coordinate this event that will last long in the memories of all our children.
BIS International Week 2020
Tet Celebrations: 20th-21st January
Celebrating with our host country is one of the privileges of working in an international school, and we are all looking forward to ushering in the Year of the Mouse in a few weeks’ time. At the Early Years and Infant Campus, we will be having two days of celebration:
Monday 20th January – the Tet Fair will be happening in the Sports Hall at school. This is an event just for the children and year groups will have the opportunity to enjoy many Tet related activities.
Tuesday 21st January – Children are to come to school wearing their ao dai and we will be having two assemblies to which parents are invited:
- 8.30am – 9.05am – F1, F2 and F3 Tet Assembly
- 1.45pm – 2.30pm – Year 1 and Year 2 Tet Assembly
We do hope that you will be able to join us in these two celebrations of our international community and the beginning of the new lunar year.
As I have mentioned previously, Ms Naomi (a former BIS teacher that I am sure many of you will remember) has taken a year off work to run from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City in order raise awareness and money for a number of our community partners.
Last weekend, Ms Maria, joined her on her run as Ms Naomi approached her 100th day on the road:

International Week is a time when the PTG has such an impact. It is great when we see parents volunteer to support events such as the Spring Fair or the pot-luck lunches, but as you can see from the photograph, nothing compares to the fabulous support we receive from parents at the Global Café. Thank you
