International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) had the honour to welcome the former Manchester City football star Shay Given to its new state-of-the-art ISHCMC Secondary Campus. 64 students from Ho Chi Minh City participated in a four-day training session with Manchester City coaches at ISHCMC’s rooftop sports field.

Adrian Watts, head of school at ISHCMC, says: “It was a privilege to have Shay Given at our Secondary Campus. I believe that having Shay at the campus will inspire the students to become the best they can be not only in academics, but also as well-rounded and balanced individuals.”
ISHCMC Secondary Campus offers great opportunities for student learning through technologically advanced classrooms, collaborative learning spaces, and senior student study areas. Unique facilities, such as Vietnam’s first Innovation Center, aim to prepare ISHCMC’s students for the realities of the commercial world in the 21st century. Full-scale musical productions are hosted in the brand new theater with professional lighting and sound equipment, extending opportunities into the technical aspects of theater production.
In line with ISHCMC’s goal of producing well-balanced and healthy students, ISHCMC’s new facility provides secondary school students with a wide range of facilities to support their well-being. Sports facilities include multi-purpose courts, a full NBA sized indoor basketball court, a rooftop sports ﬁeld, and a 25m, eight-lane competitive swimming pool.
Founded in 1993, ISHCMC is one of the first and most established international schools in Ho Chi Minh City, with over 1,000 students from more than 50 nationalities. ISHCMC is the city’s first IB World School authorised to provide all three International Baccalaureate Programmes (primary years programme, middle years programme, and the diploma programme) for students aged 2 to 18.
