4. Excellent teaching staff who are dedicated educators

And much more...

Thank you for the warm hosting today!
CONGRATULATIONS to Saigon Star on being the FIRST EVER and only school in Vietnam accredited by International Primary Curriculum (IPC)!

It is GREAT to see that more students in Vietnam are thriving with the innovative IPC curriculum.

Tôi muốn tham quan trường để chuẩn bị cho hai con vào học năm 2018-2019, vui lòng liên hệ cho biết contact. Thanks

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

It’s been an incredibly difficult period for our community so it’s natural to have our mental health challenged.

Today is World Mental Day and in being so, get into the spirit by checking in with your loved ones and see how they are holding up; we never know what’s going on inside someone’s mind.

Ever questioned the Science behind the brilliant brain? 🧠

Well, question no more as our brainy bunch of Year 5’s used the knowledge and understanding accumulated from their first IPC topic of they year, Brainwave, to produce Non-Chronological Reports in English. As you can see, they used high standards of language modeled during the Talk 4 Writing process to produce a google slide report to showcase learning.

Taffy’s here, is a particularly good example and uses sentence structures ‘magpied’ from our shared reading to enhance the quality.

We're proud to continue our fantastic relationship with the forward-thinking International Primary Curriculum for the next few years and hopefully, beyond.

The innovative curriculum, inspired by leading educational countries such as Finland, Singapore and England, supports us in our vision to ensure that 'All children are helped to become globally competent, well-rounded, lifelong learners.'

Reflection is a huge part of our Learning Process at Saigon Star, as well as being integral to the IPC, and our teachers are advocates of using the Visible Thinking Routines from Project Zero at Harvard.

Mr. James was particularly pleased with these two reflections from Shanvi and Darren using the 'I used to think...now I think' VTR, after the class undertook a task exploring the human memory, during their Brainwave topic.

As John Dewey famously said, "We do not learn from experience, we learn from reflecting on experience."

Talk 4 Writing is a process that our learners are extremely passionate about, as you can see from Adi in Year 5.

Tasked with reciting an exemplar modelled text that develops a child's 'linguistic competency' and helps them 'internalise' the language patterns and sentence structures for their own writing later in the unit, Adi gave a wonderful, enthusiastic and action-packed display of T4W at its best.

"This should help learners write incredible non-chronological reports linked to our Brainwave IPC topic", Mr. James proudly added.

Fantastic reciting and articulation Adi!

Happy 😃 Mid-Autumn 🍁 Festival! 🇻🇳

21/09/2021

Mr. Tom has been having so much fun with his language classes that the class decided to celebrate with an impromptu sing-along to Sophie’s wonderful guitar playing; a skill she’s developed whilst in lockdown.

Such moments are commonplace amongst our teaching and learning teams as we aim to foster strong relationships which in turn, have been proven to improve learning outcomes.

Creativity is intelligence having fun. 🤩—Albert Einstein … Smiles are positive energy for star 🌟 learning!✨ —Mr. Tom

Roald Dahl Day today! 👍& our learning 🌟 stars ✨ like reading 📖!

For many of our teachers, Roald Dahl was a huge inspiration in developing a love of books and an insatiable passion for reading.

Today would have been the great man’s 105th birthday…why not celebrate by taking the Roald Dahl challenge?

Although our fantastic Primary team have been holding twice-weekly 'Wellbeing check in's' the past 3 weeks, it was wonderful to see the return of our returning teachers and LTAs today, ahead of our first official day with learners next Wednesday.

Welcomed by Mr. Tom and Mr. James with a look forward to the year ahead, they then met to discuss optimal plans for the upcoming period of remote learning. They are determined to create engaging and fun virtual lessons that continue to ensure as much progress as possible.

Those of you within our beloved community that remember our IPC accreditation in 2018 (still the only school in 🇻🇳 to be IPC accredited!), will remember that International Mindedness was one of five criteria where we were awarded the judgement of 'Mastering'.

A few years later, this is still an area of passion for our fantastic teaching and learning team as you can see by the smiling faces of our new teachers (and a few returning members of staff that enjoy it so much!) during their virtual induction week that continues today.

The 'cultural iceberg' was a big talking point as with respect, appreciation and zero value judgement, we discussed similarities and differences we have noticed that go beyond the '5 F's' of surface level international mindedness.

If you look at the cultural iceberg, what is a similarity or difference between your Home Country and the Host Country of Vietnam?

Time to be a Learning ✨ Star 🌟@ SGSIS! "The Road Not Taken" is a narrative poem by Robert Frost, first published in the August 1915 issue of The Atlantic Monthly, and later published as the first poem in the collection Mountain Interval. Originally published: 1916
Author: Robert Frost
Lines: 20
Rhyme scheme: ABAAB
First published in: Mountain Interval
It’s shared here for reading 📖 as family:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

At Saigon Star, our belief is that a school should provide a platform for both academic progress and personal growth. With our Personal Learning Goals, our teachers go beyond the school walls and create opportunities to develop and showcase these as much as possible.

For our first month, the PLG is one in which every member of our school (and local) community has been showcasing the past 18 months, and 1 that remains a crucial soft skill in the workplace, Adaptability.

During Year 5's Wellbeing sessions the past week or so, Mr. James set the children the task of trying to earn the Adaptability badge by completing the 2 activities from the Milepost 3 (Year 5 & 6) PLG Home Learning Menu.

He's been blown away by the quality of the creativity, range and enthusiasm from the learners so far, with a special mention to Shanvi and Ishana for their contributions. Shanvi produced incredible videos documenting her observations of her new pet budgie (even a You Tube channel) whilst Ishana made an amazingly detailed doll for her friend that sadly left 🇻🇳.

Looking forward to seeing more amazing work, Year 5!

It might be the summer break for our community but that doesn't stop our Star Learners 🤩 from furthering their Knowledge, Skills or Understanding around topics close to their ❤️.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads, Mr. Neil and Mr. James, took part today in the National Online Safety webinar on Cyberbullying, which reminded them of the steps that everyone within the school community can take to ensure the emotional safety and wellbeing of its members.

It seemed particularly pertinent due to the likelihood of an increase in device use and screen time whilst our local community faces its most devastating wave of COVid yet and subsequent lockdowns.

Some top tips from Mr. James and Mr. Neil:
👉 Periodically have open & honest conversations with your children to ensure they follow good online practices,
👉 Look out for 'teachable moments' during these conversations that help to build transparency and trust,
👉 Age guidelines for any apps and games are respected and adhered to by ALL family members. They are in place for good reason!
👉 Parents and trusted adults remain vigilant and look out for any changes in behaviour whilst using a device or beyond (this might suggest being cyberbullied, cyberbullying or witnessing this),
👉 Check that your child has not set up 'ghost' accounts with games or apps that you are not aware of.

Screenshots of information from the webinar can be found in this post for our parent community to read but an abundance of further resources can be found at: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/ or https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/parents-and-carers

Our Story

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 150 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 and the occasional roaming pack of friendly water buffalo.

With regards to the curriculum, we believe that today’s learners need more than just good academic skills to be successful. By delivering the English National Curriculum, and supplementing it with the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), 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 14-20 students, guaranteeing every child the individual attention they deserve.
