BIS HCMC Update: 02/03/2020

Following a further decision from the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City, schools are to remain closed until the 16th March. Unfortunately, that means that BIS HCMC will remain closed to all students including our Senior School classes. They have indicated that Y13 can attend school on Monday 9th March, but that remains unconfirmed at this stage. 

Therefore, we have decided to rearrange our academic calendar in view of this.

  • Primary and EYFS students will continue with another week of e-learning and then receive their Term 2 holiday (w/b 9th March) in readiness for restarting school on 16th March. The rationale behind this change is in response to the feedback that our younger students have found e-learning more challenging. There was also concern about the amount of screen time they have faced. We hope that this decision will give the students, parents and teachers a necessary break in order to refresh themselves prior to restarting school.
  • Secondary students will continue with two further weeks of e-learning before returning to school on the 16th March dependent on any further decisions. 

This, in turn, will affect the Spring Break which will now be reduced to consolidate learning back in the classroom. Based upon this information I can confirm the following alterations to our published school calendar:

Please be aware the above calendar could still change depending on any Government decisions made during this period and the situation globally regarding COVID 19.

Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) – clubs and squads

As another measure to further consolidate our e-learning we can confirm that from Tuesday 17th March until at least Wednesday 29th April, all CCAs (both free and paid clubs and squads) will be collapsed to give an additional hour of learning time for students that are attending school.

We will, of course, keep you updated as things progress early next week.

For all of us, this has been a very challenging period and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. As a community, we need to continue to be flexible, tolerant and understanding of each other which is, of course, a real strength of BIS HCMC.

Thank you for your continued support at this difficult time.

Mr Anthony Rowlands, Principal
