Overview of the week’s activities

Chúc Mừng Năm Mới 

Tet 2020 Assembly SC-33


We would like to wish you all Chúc mừng năm mới, happy reunions with your family and safe travels.

Vietnamese Lunar New Year, also known as Tet, is one of the most important celebrations of the year in Vietnam honouring the arrival of Spring. Tet is a time for people to reflect on what has taken place over the past year, and together with their families, to look towards the future sharing quality time together. During this time of year, there are lots of traditional activities happening all over the country. At the British International School Ho Chi Minh City, we marked this special time across all three campuses with celebratory assemblies and Primary Tet Fairs.

At the Secondary Campus the annual Tet assembly was held on Monday with both staff and students delighting the entire secondary school with a celebration of traditional and contemporary Vietnamese song and dance. A big thank you to our Head of Vietnamese, Ms Mai, and all involved for bringing Tet alive and beginning the holiday season so wonderfully.

BIS Uniform Swap - Sunday 9th February


BIS_BIS Uniform Swap - Sunday 9th February


The Uniform Upcycling Club will be holding a uniform sort and swap day on Sunday 9th February.  This will be an opportunity to bring in any BIS uniform that your children may have grown out of recently and exchange it for second hand uniform of the correct size.  We know that many of our students go through a growth stage around this time of year and may need to update their uniform. The Uniform Upcycling Club has been collecting and sorting BIS uniform over the last couple of years and now has more than 1000 items available to exchange.


Please stop by to see if you can find some items that are suitable for your child.  If you are also able to spend 30 minutes to help with sorting of the donated uniform, your help will be very much appreciated.
