If for any reason your child is absent from school, we ask for you to either inform the class teacher or email reception firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also inform the receptionists via telephone from 7:30am on the morning of absence. If your child usually takes the school bus, we would also ask for you to also inform Ms Trang, our bus manager, via email at Trang.Pham@bisvietnam.com
When calling reception please use the telephone number:

If school has not been informed as to the reason for your child being absent, the receptionists will contact parents on the first morning of absence to establish the reason. If possible, it would be helpful to indicate how long you expect your child(ren) to be absent for.

Both gates open 2.35pm, 15 minutes before school ends.

F3, followed by Year 1 and finally Year 2 will be collected from the parent hall. Please wait behind Year Group banners and wait to be called.
The class teacher will look at your child’s badge. If you do not have it then you will need to go to the table to get a permission to leave slip from the receptionist. If you give a friend your card and ask them to pick up your child/children, you must let the class teacher know in advance. If not then you will receive a phone call.
As in all major cities petty crime does occur, as a reminder to all of us please always take care of your personal belongings, especially when walking between campuses and across roads.
The Parent Teacher Group plays such an important role in the life of the school. Last year, it was great to see so many parents volunteering their time to support events and activities had such a positive impact on the whole BIS community. It was sad that in the latter part of the year, we had to cancel so many events, however, we are hopeful that many of these events will take place this year. We know that the PTG is such a source of strength in our community that will help us through the current crisis regardless.
Each week, the PTG has a post highlighting what is happening over the coming weeks and months, and how you can get involved. Click on the link below to find out more:
Primary PTG Update: 21/08/2020
I am always amazed at how resilient our young learners are at the Early Years and Infant Campus. As parents and teachers we sometimes worry about how they will cope with the circumstances that we find ourselves in, however, the children have been amazing this week and made such a super start to the school year.
Mr Anthony has said that we need to expect the unexpected, but we are confident that we can look forward to a great year of learning and watching the children flourish, whatever happens.
Enjoy a relaxing and restful weekend,
Head of the Early Years and Infant Campus
