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 2.5 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 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, Cambridge and supplementing it with the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), International Primary Curriculum (IPC), 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 18-20 students, guaranteeing every child the individual attention they deserve.

Mission: Saigon Star is a school where every teacher and student is passionate about learning, where every member demonstrates a growth-mindset, an enquiring mind and a desire/passion to become the best they can be. Our learners think deeply, think creatively and critically, and work conscientiously to achieve their goals, yet show humility in their achievements. They demonstrate adaptability, a sense of fairness and a high degree of integrity in their decisions. They work and play cooperatively, demonstrate good communication skills, and show mindfulness and respect towards the world around them.

Jolie Consequences Exit Point

We have ended the term on a high note in the MYs with our Exit Point Media Presentations earlier this afternoon. The students all worked very hard and showed a great deal of passion, understanding and empathy for the issues that they chose related to the Covid-19 pandemic and its implications for one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Each student developed a media campaign of 3 posts to get their message across to their audience. Here are just 2 examples:

Sums up how our teaching team feels quite nicely. #community #caring #resilience

It was a real treat for Mr. James yesterday as he reconnected with our learners in Pre-School and Nursery by reading them two of their favourite stories.

He was amazed at their participation and level of focus as they joined him in making their animal impressions and finding their phonic sounds. Good adaptability Mr. James and Early Years!

Some fantastic news for our community this week as Ms. Alex, one of our Middle Years teachers, gave birth to the beautiful Finley Quynh Martinez on 31st March.

Both mother and child are doing extremely well; adjusting to their new life as a family of three. Congratulations! 🥰🥳

[03/25/20]   It is believed that handwashing helps a lot to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) as hands can pick up germs from other people or from objects that are touched by others.
When the hands come in contact with the nose, mouth or eyes, virus can enter the body to cause illness. The steps of handwashing can be easily found everywhere nowadays but students sometimes found it hard to remember.
That’s why Saigon Star’s teachers had joined the very hot trend of ‘Ghen Co Vy’ dance challenge to attract our Sun Bears’ attention to the importance of handwashing. Give it a shot as it is so incredible... ❤️

[03/25/20]   Struggling for what to say to your little ones about the current climate? An Education Psychologist in a fellow IPC school in Singapore, has some useful guidance:

Children process information according to their developmental level so it is helpful to have an idea of how to respond to their questions in ways which are most effective. All children are different and have their own unique emotional responses but the following is a general guideline.

Young children up to about age 5
Children of this age need simple straightforward answers to their questions. They do not need more than they ask for. If they want more they will ask. Too much information can be confusing and may be upsetting. Children this age may need to ask repeatedly and adults need to be patient in repeating answers and refrain from responding with “I told you that already”. If children are anxious they should be reassured that they are safe. Do not share your own fears with children of this age.
Play is an excellent way to process information. Children of this age will express emotions in their play so it is worth keeping an eye and supporting expressive play. Having resources such as dressing up clothes and models can be helpful. Playing alongside and with children of this age is good for both the children and the adults.

Children 5 to 10
Children of this age are likely to be more curious about the situation. They will be more aware of what adults are talking about and may hear things from media sources. Questions should also be answered straightforwardly. Beware of giving excess or more worrying information. Limit exposure to the news and media feeds as far as possible.
Children need to be listened to, to have their questions answered and to be reassured that they are safe and being looked after. Try not to tell children of this age not to worry. If they are asking about the situation, they may not be worried, just curious and that answer could start them worrying. Alternatively they may be worrying already so telling them not to do so dismisses their fears and leaves them feeling that they have not been listened to.
Children of this age often act out their experiences in role play. They may also paint and draw to express themselves. Providing resources for this to happen can be helpful. Try not to react too much to their play as by playing they are likely to be processing information without needing further discussion.

Older children
Older children are likely to gain their information about the situation more independently, in particular through social media. They are also more likely to discuss it with their peers rather than their parents. There is therefore a lot of opportunity for myths and scares to abound. This is a good opportunity to discuss internet safety and self-imposed limitations.
Older children will be processing information at a more abstract level and are likely to be more critical of the actions of governments and adults in authority. They may need more extended discussion and validated reassurances with adults in order to manage their feelings about the situation.
If they become anxious, older children can be supported to develop their coping strategies through discussion with adults and online support.
It is a good idea for parents to encourage older children to talk about how they are feeling about this situation. If they are reluctant to do so then they will sometimes talk to another trusted adult. They may want to protect their parent from worrying about them (parents are frequently perceived as having a lot on their plate and their children sometimes don’t want to add to their stress).
It is important to recognise that, whether we like it or not, we are the role models for our children. So, if we display anxiety, they are likely to pick it up. In addition, they will copy our coping strategies. Staying calm, focussing on reliable information sources and supporting each other will help people ride out this storm.

Definition of Play

Our new website has a 'Bulletin Board', where you can see short posts about updates to our provision and how we have improved learning with regards to one aspect. First up, is Ms. Grace with some information on our new 'Definition of Play'.

sgstar.edu.vn Inspired by the IEYC learning principle, ‘Play is an essential aspect of all children’s learning and development’, we believe that enlightening our school community’s understanding of PLAY is one of many vital responsibilities of Saigon Star.

It's business as usual at Saigon Star despite school closures. Our Middle Years students put on their first ever fully online, live Exit Points using Zoom. Members of our community logged on to watch as Year 7 and Year 8 presented the new understandings they've developed throughout their Creativity and Courage units. Here is a presentation done by a Y7 student and one done by a pair of Y8s. #adaptable #resilient #deepthinker #IMYC #GoSunBears

Rejoiced TET 2020 at Saigon Star International School

What a wonderful start to Tet at Saigon Star International School!

On Saturday the 11 th of January all families and the school staff met together to celebrate this very special occasion. The children were enthralled with the many traditional activities and much laughter and happy smiles were seen throughout the whole day and evening. Joyfulness and a feeling of togetherness could be seen from both adults and children alike!

Everyone was able to experience the wonderful activities that have been experienced by Vietnamese children for centuries, such as a bagatelle, game of Roll the Dice, hand painting traditional Vietnamese scenes on conical bamboo hats and sorting out different types of vegetable beans, etc. Others were seen busily making traditional Banh Trung cake, whilst others eagerly ate the Glutinous Rice balls and rice cake.

Shortly after there was a massive BBQ outside in the beautiful grounds as well as an array of very tasty Vietnamese traditional dishes in the school restaurant. This was followed by haunting traditional Vietnamese melodies, played by beautifully dressed musicians, and then one of the highlights of the day – the exciting Lion
Dance!

Everyone was enthralled with the antics and breathtaking gymnastics of the Lion Dance and this was then followed by a fun quiz where the children had the chance to earn Li Xi, or Lucky Money, envelopes for each correct answer.

All good things come to an end but in the case of this memorable day, the happy time continued, with many children and their families camping overnight in the school!

In the morning, like one true big family, a hearty Pho breakfast was shared before many tired but very happy families and staff returning to their homes. All are now eagerly awaiting next year’s special Tet event!

On behalf of Saigon Star International School, we wish to show our appreciation to all of the support provided to the school by our various community members for the academic sessions, festivities, matches, musical concerts, learning showcases and other activities throughout the year.

We would love to wish each and every family a Merry Christmas & wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year in 2020. We will raise a glass in honour & rememberance to the loved ones whom are no longer with us.

May the holiday season ahead be peaceful and enjoyable! See you all back in the new year on Monday 6th January when our fantastic learners and teaching staff return.

[12/11/19]   The school fields and play areas were a bit quieter today as IES arrived on campus for a busy Book Fair armed with lots of good holiday reading material, educational resources and fun toys and games for the children to purchase before our Winter Break. The fair continues tomorrow during recess, at lunch time and before our Winter Show, ‘Saigon Star’s Got Talent’, so give yourself more time to explore before the show starts at 5:15pm & find ways for the learning to continue during Christmas.

In Maths, Y7 students researched fractals and Sierpinski’s triangle. They then constructed a ‘stage 3’ Sierpinski Pyramid out of 64 individual tetrahedrons, innovating holiday decorations from Maths learning. A very mathematical Christmas tree! #cooperation #STEAM #Creativity #IMYC

Last Thursday, Friends for Street Children (FFSC) used the money raised from last year’s Roller Dash to award education scholarships to the twelve of the most in-need families. It’s heartwarming to see that the efforts of the Saigon Star community helps to keep so many less fortunate children stay in education - something for us all to be very proud of.

Anti-Bullying Week last week left a lasting impression on our learners as School Council led a new display for our lobby area entitled ‘Be the ‘I’ in kind’. Our very own Y3 took turns to model the interactive nature. Make sure you stop by for your own photo when you visit our campus!

Another fantastic Exit Point from our Year 3 students last week as they showcased their learning during their Brainwave IPC unit to other year groups across the school. Arranging lots of memory-based games for their peers, they explained their understanding of the process of learning in a fun, engaging & collaborative manner. Well done, Y3!
