Primary PTG Update - Friday 11th December 2020

Can you believe we are already coming to the end of Term 1!   We have been very grateful to enjoy some amazing events this term.

Our PTG Volunteer Coordinators (from L-R): Gayatri, Lily, Pamela, Jana, Ai, Vivian and Thomas (not in the photo)

We started the term with our Vietnamese language and Culture workshops, learning more about Vietnamese language and Moon Festival, followed quickly by our Cultural Festival enjoying BIS parent peformances from around the world.  Both of these events were NEW this year and very much appreciated by the parents and teachers so we hope to have both these events each year and see them become big successes!

Most recently we have enjoyed Teacher’s day Pot Luck Appreciation Lunch and Christmas Disco.  For the Teacher’s day event we received a HUGE amount of support from the parents who provided delicious food to show their love and apreciation for the BIS teachers who all went home with full a heart and stomach full!

For the Christmas Disco we had organised a wonderful DJ disco from MUSE Inc. They are an organisation of DJ’s who also provide DJ and Music Production training courses.  Sadly due to the recent Covid scare they could not attend, but they are ready to support Term 2 and Term 3 Discos. If anyone would like to learn more about the training programs they offer click here or contact Primary PTG for a copy of their brochure.

The PTG were disappointed we couldn’t help facilitate the disco on the day, but we are so grateful to the many teachers who stepped in and helped out to ensure the disco could still go ahead.  The parents and PTG are so grateful because it is clear to see from the photos that all the children had an amazing time and we are sure they will be looking forward to term 2 and term 3 discos that are already scheduled!

As we say goodbye to term 1, we are already excitedly planning term 2 events! Two BIG events that we are all really looking forward to are International Week  including the delicious Global Café, and the Spring fair.  These two are key events for the school and we are hopeful that, like previous years, we will get a lot of support from you all this year too! 

In addition to these, you can see a summary of the scheduled events we are already working on:

Thurs 7th January – Welcome Back Coffee Morning! A wonderful opportunity to finally meet all new families, and reconnect with those existing BIS families we have missed seeing during these restricted times.

Tues 12th January – PTG Bus Tour and Lunch – A fun way for you to familiarize yourselves with the ‘hot spots’ of Thao Dien and District 1, HCMC, with the option of joining together for lunch! (More information will be shared in the new year!)

25th-29th January – International Week & Global Café!  

Thursday 4th March – Book Swap - Donate unwanted books, exchange for something new, and whatever is left over will be donated to our Community Partners…It’s a WIN WIN WIN! Volunteers welcome!! Whether you can spare an hour to sort the books,  or are available to help on the day of the event, the is a role for you! See the Sign Up link Below.

Saturday 20th March – Spring Fair! It’s the event of the Spring providing fun for all the family. Its 3 months away but we are already starting to work on it and are in need of many volunteers to make this event as memorable as it always is! Sign Up link below.

Thursday 15th April – Thuy’s Dream Cancer Coffee Morning. A very special event that raises awareness and funds for an incredibly important Cancer Charity in our community called Thuys Dream.  More information will follow but we would be so grateful to anyone who can volunteer some time to help with this event.
