Mr Carl Mincher: Weekly Update 14/02/2020

Dear Parents,


Ongoing forced school closure


Further to the announcement last night that we will have to remain closed to students I would like to inform you that our E-learning will continue from Monday. I have been very impressed with both the quality and variety of the e- learning methods adopted by our teaching team as well as the response of the students, some of which we are sharing through our social media platforms.


Our teachers will be preparing over the weekend to maintain the continuity of educational provision in this way but please understand any delay on Monday morning will be brief and would be due to the fact that we were fully expecting to be open next week. 


This is a very difficult situation for all of us due to the ongoing uncertainty and last minute decisions. However, we will make further contact with you on Monday with any updates that we have. 


Thank you again for your ongoing understanding and support.


Overview of the week’s activities

International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Women in Science at BIS HCMC



Tuesday 11th February marked the International Day of Women and Girls in Science; a day recognised by the United Nations to celebrate the critical role women play in Science and Technology and to encourage more girls to choose careers in these fields.


Research suggests that although abilities between girls and boys in Maths and Science are not significantly different, less than 35% of students graduating from university in STEM subjects are women.


At the British International School Ho Chi Minh City we are actively encouraging all our children, regardless of gender, to engage with STEAM subjects. Find out more about why we are anticipating seeing many more of our BIS women and girls in science.

Wellbeing Activity - My Wellbeing Week in Photos


Students across all year groups have clearly been having similar experiences this week as they demonstrated through their engagement in the “My Wellbeing Week in Photos” challenge. Everyone was tasked with taking a photograph a day for a full week - every picture had to show an element of PERMAH in action. It has been wonderful to see students spending time with family, engaged in their favourite hobbies, reading books, enjoying great food and having fun with friends. I hope you have had a chance to engage with your son or daughter in this challenge….and maybe even appear in some of their photographs!!
