HIS Tigers Volleyball and Basketball

During the last few week our MS Basketball and HS Volleyball teams played their first matches of the season. We would like to celebrate their fantastic efforts on the court and also the very hard work they put into training each week.

Our HS Volleyball teams came up against a very strong opponent in UNIS in their first matches of the season. The results didn't go our way but there were a lot of positives to be taken from these matches. Following this our teams traveled to BIS where our boys narrowly lost but show cased major improvements and their ability to learn from previous matches. Our HS girls demonstrated their class and the work they put in in training showed off beating BIS convincingly"

MS basketball traveled to UNIS for their first matches of the season. For most of our students a very first match playing as a tiger. Our teams came up short to a very strong UNIS outfit but the energy and enjoyment levels for both teams were amazing."

Upcoming fixtures:
HS Volleyball vs SPAS - Tuesday 18 September

MS Basketball vs BVIS - Tuesday 18 September

Lets celebrate the hard work and commitment our teams and coaches put in every week.

Go Tigers!!!

Grade 8 students walking awkwardly towards each other in the auditorium testing their comfort levels with personal space; Grade 11 Diploma Japanese students completing characters on the board with huge smiles on their faces; two French students reading to each other in a language they are only just coming to grips with; Graded 12s wrapping bandages around objects in the new Art and Design space. I am happy to say I saw all of these things in a short ten minute walk around our school.

It is truly inspiring to see so much creativity, effort and pleasure coming from our students as they inquire and engage in numerous ways. Our programmes and teachers enable students to explore the very best they can be and it is this among so many other reasons why I love every minute I spend in our school.

Yesterday I was also privileged to take part in the first MRISA boys volleyball practice of the season. Yest again the passion our students feel for their school was clear to see. We all look forward to another great season of HIS Tigers sports starting this Saturday with Hanoi Activities Conference senior volleyball games starting at 10am at UNIS. Go Tigers!

This year we look forward to seeing more and more of our community supporting both sporting and art events at HIS. In March we host the MRISA Arts Exchange when 120 students from around South East Asia will be joining our community for a celebration of arts, dance, drama and music. Next weekend we welcome the Coordinators from all six MRISA schools as we begin planning for this exciting event.

Next Thursday we also look forward to seeing parents at our next PTA Meeting starting at 3pm in the library.

Finally a reminder that next Tuesday is our first ‘late start’ of the year with students coming at 10:30. While students are enjoying a lie in, our teachers will be working collaboratively across the whole school as we begin our Professional Growth for this year.

Thank you to those of you who attended our Open Evening a couple of weeks ago. I look forward to meeting more of you at further school events as the year continues.


Yours,


Matt Buxton

Head of Secondary
