Tesla Talk Week August 28th 2020
Director of Studies
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the first of what will be weeklynewsletters from Tesla that should come into your mailbox every Friday. The purpose is to keep you informed of news and reminders of what is happening at Tesla as we progress through what will be quite a significant year as we develop the teaching and learning for all students at the school and manage the growth as enrolment develops.
This first newsletter is by way of introducing myself as I am Robin Klymow who has been working on the Advisory Board, but now I have stepped into the role of Director of Studies to ensure the continuum of learning for students and to ensure we meet our strategic goals. I have always been impressed by the community feel the school has and now I am here full time I can see it in many areas of the work that is being done. I must admit that the students are very outgoing and have been most polite and friendly and I think that is testament to both parents and teachers who have instilled in them some good habits and courtesies.
I want to use this newsletter to remind you of our workshop this Saturday,August 29th, 2020 starring at 08:30 In the Dance/ Music room- Tesla Tan Binh Campus. The workshop will give you some information regarding how the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme(IBPYP) approach builds on the MOET curriculum. This is a two year development that will start with the school being given candidate status to plan and implement the approach. The workshop will give you an overview of some of the initial steps and will also give you time to ask questions and consider the planning taking place.
We will be offering workshops on a monthly basis so you as parents understand the developments we are making and how they add deeper skills for the students at Tesla. Please look out for the
information that we will be sending out to you all and I do hope that I can meet many of you this Saturday.
Finally, it is perhaps one of the most dramatic years for our planet due to Covid19. I know I feel fortunate to be here in Vietnam where the country has worked so hard to contain a major outbreak. Do not forget that children can be very worried by what is going on and not always understanding the impact. So, at the forefront of for all us us is the wellbeing of children, not only physically, but mentally too. It is good to keep talking sometimes about Covid19 to understand how some children might be thinking about it. We have attached our advice ad rules regarding Covid19 prevention with this newsletter as it might be a way of discussing further with you child(ren) their current thoughts.
Thank you and hope to see you Saturday morning for the works.
Mr. Robin Klymow

The project “Understand Yourself” has been implemented with many different classes and activities to provide students with full knowledge and personal skills. Self-knowledge, self-confidence to learn, and willing to explore are the factors that the project wants to teach students. Students attend to discuss with each other about the contents to learn and set up a project network. Students learn about the external and internal parts of the body, be trained and strengthened through Multi -Sport sports lessons. At the same time, enhancing the ability to interact and communicate in English with amazing lessons for students.
