AIS is also celebrating 10 years as an IB school. Previously, Inspired Education Group made a commitment to reinvest in the school buildings, firstly with an IB suite, library and boarding facility and, this year, with a revamp of the reception area and community garden at the Thu Thiem campus.

In addition, the Thao Dien campus has seen a redesign and development of KidZone facilities and Cherry Blossom school reception area.

On Friday, Feb. 11, AIS hosted a small event to open the newly refurbished areas at the AIS Thu Thiem campus.

"What better way to welcome everyone back than with much improved facilities, a new look and new social spaces. We hope that parents and students enjoy the new community areas and we look forward to continuing to invest in our facilities here in Vietnam to remain a leading school of choice, like we have over the last 15 years," said Felix Marian, CFO for Inspired Education Group in the Asia Pacific region.

This event also offered guests a tour of new campus upgrades and community areas like the lobby area, re-purposed naturally ventilated courtyard, shaded pavilions, interconnected zones for students and visitors, plus an exhibition zone.

"We take great pride in the partnership we have with Vietnam, and one of the areas of great importance to both countries is the education sector, especially with the work we are doing in secondary and tertiary education. We have more than 24,000 Vietnamese students enrolled in Australian institutions and we are also pleased to see the contribution the Vietnamese alumni play in Australia and when coming back to Vietnam," said Sarah Hooper, Australian consul-general designate.
