Jenny will be working extensively across our BIS Group of Schools in early February 2014. As a non FOBISIA event, I would like to extend the invitation for any interested FOBISIA teachers to attend one day of training at An Phu Primary Campus in HCMC, Vietnam on Tuesday 4th February 2014.

The cost for each attending teacher will be $250, made payable to BIS, HCMC which will include all refreshments throughout the day plus lunch at school. Flights, hotel costs and transportation to and from school will need to be arranged by each individual school – I have suggested below a couple of hotels in the city that are well located, reliable and affordable.
