Saigon Star International School currently caters for children between ages from 2 years old and follows both the UK and International Curriculum.
Saigon Star International School celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2016, yet remains a small, family-size school with a modest population of less than 300 students. Having started life in a converted French villa in the heart of city, the school moved to a new, purpose built campus in 2010 within the new residential area of District 2, where it is now surrounded by green spaces, cleaner air an

By delivering the English National Curriculum, Cambridge and supplementing it with the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), International Primary Curriculum we believe we are able to deliver a truly first-class international education, and help our learners to acquire the highly-developed personal skills, attitudes and aptitudes needed in the 21st Century. Class-sizes range from between 18-20 students, guaranteeing every child the individual attention they deserve.

Thinking of the perfect present can be a struggle. Most of us have been there wandering the shops or internet with no solid clue as to what to buy for a child. This year why not gift something which can stay with the recipient for life? … CONTINUOUS LEARNING @ Saigon Star International School.
As Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” - A star symbolizes light and a bright way forward. Here is a memory from last Christmas. History matters and we are lucky to continue to develop our future on a strong foundation.
We wish you all a restful holiday, so that you will be full of energy for official learning to start again, January 4th. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
The most wonderful time of the year is upon us once again
We hope you create treasured memories to last a lifetime.

We wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year in 2022.
With the countdown to Christmas this week, Star Reception Class with Ms. Ellen and LTA team have actively been making exciting Christmas 🎄 decorations, and lovely cards for their dear families. Learners also enjoyed writing letters to Santa in preparation for the big day! English is indeed more fun when it can be productively applied in real world authentic usage! That’s the way star learners do it everyday. Happy Holidays to ALL!
- Yesterday was Wellness Wednesday, a day where we take a break from the screens and enjoy some hands-on learning with the family. The Year 6 students were challenged to build their own library fort and fill it with pillows and books. They were then tasked to read in their forts for 20 minutes. Check out the collaboration, communication, resilience and deep thinking that our students demonstrated while building their forts!
- Yesterday the Year 6 students were also tasked with making a meal for themselves and their family. By age 11, students can partake in helping to plan family meals, peel vegetables, open cans, make a salad, assemble sandwiches and more. Look at the healthy and delicious meals the SGSIS Year 6 students made for their families- little chefs in the making!
Treasure Hunt learning tasks are well know for their ability to facilitate improved communication in star learning groups as it encourages open communication and discussion. It improves relationships and in turn the quality of work produced. Our star learners have fun too and create lifelong happy memories!
Can ocean pollution be stopped?
Wherever you live, the easiest and most direct way that you can get started is by reducing your own use of single-use plastics. Single-use plastics include plastic bags, water bottles, straws, cups, utensils, dry cleaning bags, take-out containers, and any other plastic items that are used once and then discarded.
On December 6th, Saint Nicholas Day recognizes the third-century saint who became an inspiration for the modern-day Santa Claus. St. Nicholas is known for selling all his possessions and giving his money to the poor.

Sometimes in life we face challenges and difficulties that may seem insurmountable. At SGSIS we learn to overcome obstacles that appear in our journey. Overcoming obstacles is important because an ability to overcome obstacles allows us to move forward in life, and not be held back by the challenges that we face. The ability to overcome obstacles is called resilience. This is one of our Personal Learning Goals (PLGs). People who can stay strong and face every difficulty head-on and don't give up easily are hugely resilient. They stay inspired and motivated even when they know that it will take time and effort to overcome their obstacles. "Life keeps throwing me stones. And I keep finding the diamonds." - Ana Claudia Antunes.
“Year 5 blew Mr. James out of his chair and into orbit last Thursday as the learners presented their Home Learning Showcase for the Space Scientists topic as it entered its final descent the past week. There were many brilliant pieces that responded to the engaging tasks set and here is one of those, with Albie articulately talking us through his amazing model of the International Space Station that he made from scratch. Out of this world, Albie!
Don’t count on sunscreen to provide complete protection from the sun. Wearing a sun-protective hat is a simple and effective strategy for reducing ultraviolet radiation to the face, head and neck. If children could become accustomed to wearing a hat when outdoors at school it should increase the likelihood that they will routinely wear one for non-school outdoor activities as well.
The traditional Hanukkah candle lighting service consists of saying all three blessings on the first night, and only the first and second blessings for the seven nights to follow.

In a smaller class, it’s more challenging for students to hide and get left behind. Having fewer learners means that each one can get the attention they personally need from their teacher. They are also encouraged to take part in discussions and driven to express their opinions.
Not only do students learn more skills and knowledge in small classes, but they also learn faster. And this means our classes appropriately progresses through the iEYC/IPC curriculum material at a sustainable pace. Their learning is enhanced by the confidence that star learners develop thorough appropriate learning tasks. They are encouraged to share their opinions and ask and answer questions, which also benefits their peers.
