Head of School Message - 6th September

I trust that your children have returned to school this week re-energized and ready to engage in their learning after the long weekend. National Day (Ngày Quốc Khánh) is a national holiday in Vietnam observed on 2 September, commemorating President Hồ Chí Minh reading the Declaration of Independence of Vietnam at Ba Đình Square in Hanoi on 2 September 1945. The long weekend has offered us the opportunity and time for us to come together as a community and celebrate Vietnam’s values and heritage..


Prior to our break the Senior Strategic Leadership and Design team worked to provide final feedback on refining the success criteria for our Annual Goals.



We are excited to share our Annual Goals and planned actions with you at our first Head of School Parent Forum on the 11 September. The sessions will be in person at 8.30 - 10.00am on the Secondary Campus and repeated virtually from 6.00 - 7.30pm.


Parent engagement and family involvement in a childs education makes a profound difference in student learning outcomes. When there are strong relationships between families, teachers and the school students can thrive. It is important that as parents you are able to reinforce key concepts and learnings from school. To be able to do this our team offer parent workshops and information sessions that are a critical way for you, our parents, to be informed and know how best to support your children in their learning journey.


For example, Ms. Laney Rweyemamu has recently hosted information evenings for our Grade 11 and Grade 12 students. while our Primary School team hosted their two Back to School nights. Thank you to all of our parents for being present.


This year Dr. Tosca has launched our Community Learning Exchanges which include teachers, parents and leadership in conversations centered around DEIJ-AB++. If you wish to participate in these conversations email Dr. Tosca at toscakilloran@ishcmc.edu.vn. The following word cloud represents key concepts from the conversation.



In kindness,



Kim Green, Head of School
