BIS HCMC Update: 17/02/2020

Latest update here.

All 63 provinces and cities in Vietnam have decided to postpone the reopening of schools at all levels, following a request by the Ministry of Education and Training late on Friday afternoon. As a result the British International School, Ho Chi Minh City will now remain closed to students as directed. Our e-learning programme will continue during this period, as our academic staff work hard to maintain the continuity of educational provision.

 

This is a very difficult situation for all of us due to the ongoing uncertainty and last-minute decisions, but the response from students and staff alike has been inspiring. Teachers are exploring new technologies and collaborating to formulate new methods of delivering the curriculum. Students are engaging with the teachers and equally discovering new ways to respond to what is asked of them. All are working outside of their comfort zones and thinking critically and creatively. 

Keep an eye on our social media channels over the next few days for more great examples of e-learning! 

To be clear, it is the expectation at BIS, that all children are actively engaged in their continued learning via laptop/mobile. We are taking note of attendance and engagement levels, so it is crucial that all students stay connected with their teachers, and are able to explain any absence as they normally would. 

We will continue to monitor the situation over the coming days, and work with the authorities as to any preventative measures that we deem necessary to protect the health and safety of our children. Parents, please continue to monitor your emails as further communications will be sent in due course and as necessary.
