‘Hello! I am Viet Nghia’s mother and my son is a Year 5 student at Australian International School (AIS).
My child transferred from a Vietnamese local school, so when starting at AIS, his level of English wasn’t so high. Initially, my family was very worried and afraid that he would not be able to keep up with his fellow classmates. What has been amazing though is that despite the fact my son joined the school not so long ago, now he can speak English much more fluently, no longer feeling shy and is instead much more confident.
Every day, my son comes home from school and shares to the entire family how happy he was with his day. From mentioning that he enjoyed his school lunch, to having fun dressing up for Halloween. Fridays are his favourite as he has a PE class which he loves very much, and he loves his teacher, Mr Shepherd because he is very fun in the classroom, teaching lessons through playing activities.
For me, I really appreciate Ms Susan and Ms Thuong who support me whenever I do not understand my son’s lessons, and I want to thank them a lot for their support. Our family also would like to send our thanks to Ms Diep from the admissions team, who always proactively helps and supports us whenever our family is not clear about anything. Not forgetting AIS’s bus team who have a lovely bus nanny, Ms Nhi, and a great driver.’
