As we reach the end of Term 1, and I write my last message of 2020, it is with great pride that we can look back at the year that is coming to an end.
The character of our school community has been tested, as it has been revealed by the events of this year and we can take heart that we all played a part in how we have come through this year together.
From the move to online lessons, navigating the cancellation of public examinations, re-opening our school within Covid Guidelines, ensuring our new staff were here in Vietnam ready for the start of the year and so much more, as a school community we’ve met the challenges thrown at us, and our students have had a great year, achieved great things across all areas of school life and had a lot of fun in the process. Thank you for your partnership in making this possible.
I leave you with some images of our first ever BIS Christmas Wonderland event and other activities that marked today’s end of term celebrations
I wish you all a happy and restful holiday and I look forward to seeing you in 2021.
My very best wishes
