Contact Control Measures Update
In response to the change in the community transmission picture, we have reverted to the measures we adopted at the start of the year
School events will be BIS student only.
We will suspend fixtures/events with other schools
We have restricted access to the school campus to visitors.
Parent entry to campus is by appointment only. For an appointment please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (028) 3744 2335
Hygiene Control Measures
We have retained strict hygiene protocols throughout the year. Please re-enforce with your children the particular importance of wearing a mask and maintaining good hand hygiene. Also please stay informed of notices from the Vietnamese authorities on areas of local transmission. Thank you for your support as we work together to maintain the health, safety and confidence of our community.
At this juncture it is more important than ever we look back with pride at what has been an incredibly rich and diverse term. I am therefore delighted that our new Spotlight magazine celebrating term 1 is now published and will be coming home with your children next week. It is a wonderful opportunity to look back and once again appreciate how fortunate we have been to hold such wonderful events this year to date from International Day, to our Winter Concert and Wizard of Oz performance, as well as our sporting fixtures, Co-curricular Programme and Community events. I hope you enjoy keeping the magazine as a family memento of a memorable BIS term.
BIS House Sports Day: Wednesday 9th December
Our PE Team have been busy planning an amended BIS House Sports Day for 2020. This student only event will take place on Wednesday 9th December and will consist of a range of separate competitions, ‘Olympic style’. Whilst we will not be travelling to an athletics stadium as in previous years. I know the day will be full of the same friendly competition and BIS Spirit. Look out for more updates in next week’s update.
