Parent Satisfaction Survey: What do you think about BIS?
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our school and your feedback is vital to this process. Our annual parent satisfaction survey helps us better understand how we are performing in key areas, including what we are doing well and any opportunities for improvement, and we use these results to inform our strategy. Therefore, the more parents we hear from, the more confident we can be that our action plans respond to your views and allows us to continue providing the best possible educational experience for your child.
The 2020-21 Parent Satisfaction Survey is now live and will remain open until Friday 31st January 2021.
We are once again aiming for a good response rate and need your help to do so. Please follow the link that has been emailed to you.
According to Professor Nguyễn Trường Sơn, Vietnam’s deputy minister of health, 'Drowning is the leading cause of death for those under the age of 19, killing more than 3,000 children and adolescents annually'. We want our children at BIS to be confident and have the skills to save themselves should they get into trouble in water. Ms Emily, our Head of Aquatics explains more here.
Health and Safety
A parent Health declaration Form was sent to all parents this week. Please can we ask that you complete this form if you have bot already done so. This is particularly important with Parent Teacher Student Conferences taking place next week.
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.
Drop Off and Pick Up arrangements.
Sincere thanks to everyone for your support in adhering to the guidelines for drop off and pick up. In the afternoons for those exiting through Gate C, please do not cross the road to the secondary campus there. Please go to Gate B where guards will assist you. Please note that parents cannot cross the bridge at this time as parents are not allowed into the secondary campus. Thank you for your cooperation.
