Interdisciplinary Learning in IPC - Developing Two Skills in One Context
Year 2 have enjoyed furthering their knowledge and skills in both Art and Design, and History. We became Historians and Ceramists, applying our learning about Greek mythology to create our own clay Greek plates to convey our favourite hero’s story. This formed the ‘Research and Record’ section of the IPC Learning Process, where children further their knowledge and understanding and then record it in a variety of creative ways. The children loved getting their hands dirty, using the clay tools and combining our learning in a fun context!
Sports days are coming!
The children are currently working hard in their PE lessons mastering the athletics techniques for the upcoming sports day. After the success of last year, the format will be the same, based at the Junior Campus, with all children participating for their house in both track and field events. The children will run, jump, and throw to earn points for their house, with the emphasis on having fun!

Primary PTG Chairperson
Primary Potluck Lunch
We had our first PTG parent potluck on May 19th, 2022. The parent potluck usually happens every term but this year we were able to organise this event only in Term 3. There were 90 registrations, and more than 70 parents attended the event. The tables were filled with food brought by the parents. A huge thank you to all the parents who were so generous with the portion sizes. The volunteering team had to keep adding tables for food. Parents started coming from 11am and stayed until 2pm. Every seat in the small hall on the 3rd floor of the EY campus was taken. It was nice to see the parents connect with the newcomers in their group. If it hadn't been pick-up time already, we are sure most parents would have stayed for some more time.
Such events build stronger communities and the smiles proved it was a much-awaited event. The senior leadership team- Mr. Ian, Ms. Sarah, Ms. Maria from the Early Years campus, Ms. Dee, and Mr. Chris from the Junior Campus took time out of their busy schedules and attended the event. Also it was wonderful to see Mr. Anthony chatting with the parents while enjoying the delicious food.
This dream event would not have been possible without the volunteers who planned the food display, helped the parents to place and label their food, as well as serve it. Thank you, Ms. Mercia, Ms. Anh, Ms. Maha, Ms. Lenka, Ms. Arisa, Ms. Julia, Ms. Amy, Ms. Divya, Ms. Vy, Ms.Yunah, and Ms. Duyen. A special thanks to Ms. Duyen and Ms. Lan for engaging the parents with live music and singing. It was fun to sing Saigon Dep Lam and 'Heal the world' along with other songs. A huge thank you to Irene from Upcycled uniform project. She and her team collect old BIS school uniforms and create beautiful things. If you are interested to learn more about this project, please remember to attend a meeting taking place on Monday at 1pm at The Loop on Thao Dien Street.
If you have books for donations please leave them at the guardhouse of either campus. The book sale will be on 24th May at the Early Years campus and 25th May at the Junior campus. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Lastly, we are inviting new PTG members to join the team. If you are interested please contact us through email.
