Just a reminder that all children should wear a mask to and from school, and when not in the classroom (moving between classrooms, playtime, etc.). Please make sure the mask is named and that your child has a spare in their bag.
Children should be bringing a water bottle to school every day as part of their usual routine, but it is all the more important during the current coronavirus pandemic. Please make sure that your child brings their water bottle, with their name clearly on it, every day.
Co-Curricular Activity (Clubs) Sign Up
You should have received an email with your child’s choices.
The time to make CCA payments is from Monday 7th to Thursday 10th September. If payment is not completed during this time, the place will be offered to another child.
The favoured option for payment is by BANK TRANSFER (see below), which is quick and easy to set up with online banking. If using the bank transfer option, please state the student's name, class, and CCA choice in the ‘Reference’ section of the online transfer so the payment is matched with the correct CCA choice. If you do not give these details, your payment may not be recognised and your child’s club may be lost to another child. Online payments may be made immediately upon receipt of this email, up until 4pm on Thursday 10th September.
If online banking is not possible, then payments can be made through Ms Nhu, the EYI Campus Cashier from Monday to Thursday, using cash or Vietnamese issued Credit/Debit cards. Due to the current circumstances, to facilitate payment, Ms Nhu will be available at the end of the day from 2.35pm - 3.10pm on the table by the Sports Pitch.
Please note, unless BIS cancels the programme, all paid activity payments are non-refundable; once committed, children must persevere with their club choice.

Please note that the school bus service is only available at 3.05pm and 4.00pm, which means that parents will need to collect their children if clubs finish after 4.00pm.

This term, the club programme runs from 21st September to 29th November. There are no buses on Saturday and Sunday.
If for any reason your child is absent from school, we ask for you to inform the class teacher and email reception email@example.com.

It has been an unusual week this week with the holiday being on a Wednesday. However, I hope all our Vietnamese families had a very happy Vietnamese Independence Day!
We look forward to celebrating other events from our host country; Moon Festival is in the first week of October this year, so for families that are new to Vietnam, you will need to prepare by getting an Ao Dai (the Vietnamese National costume) for your child to wear on Thursday 1st October.
Enjoy a relaxing and restful weekend,
Head of the Early Years and Infant Campus
