International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) had the honor to welcome the former Manchester City Football Star, Shay Given, to the new state-of-the-art ISHCMC Secondary Campus. Sixty four students from Ho Chi Minh City participated in a 4-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 their academic success 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 productions. 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, the rooftop sports field and a 25m, eight-lane competitive swimming pool.
