Exciting happenings at our school.

Hello Parents,

UNIS is a happening place- there is always something new and exciting. This week is the PYPX- Grade 5 exhibition which we visited this morning. The action these young students are involved in is truly inspiring and makes you feel like the future of our world is in good knowledgeable hands. See below an artwork from one of the the Plastic Oceans group.

At assembly this morning we were introduced to the “Super Cycling Man” whose message to children is that we can all be a ‘Hero’ by the actions we take everyday. He is also fundraising for Parkinson’s. An inspirational person who is following his dream of cycling around the world. Later in the afternoon Grade three had their own question & answer session. Ask your children if they remember how they can be a ‘Hero”.

Enjoy the long weekend!

Radial paper relief sculptures

Hello Parent,

It was great to see you all yesterday. I know your children really enjoyed having your undivided attention at school and showing you their work. Some of you told me how different school is now than it was in your day. It sure is an exciting, happening place compared to when I went to school and it is wonderful to be part of it all.

I know you were shown the radial symmetry pictures as all the students were so proud of them and they do look spectacular! They are in fact quite simple but the students had to use their knowledge of symmetry and fractions to work them out. Using three origami folds, four colours and different patterns, forty three different creations were made. A lot of patience, discussion, cooperation, experimenting and trial & error took place before the final composition was decided on. Next accuracy and precision was needed to glue the pieces in place to make them symmetrical- fantastic results.

Field Trip

Hello Parents,

We had a very successful field trip to Landmark 72 to see the interactive art works and down to the old quarter to see the street art . Phung Hung st street art is amazing and has only been opened since February 2018- it is a great place to visit and take visitors to see what old Hanoi was like.

Mr David took the photo below at Landmark 72 and worked his magic on it to make 3 photos into one.

Have a relaxing spring break!

Music Concert

Hello parents,

For those that were able to come along to the music concert today, I think you will agree with me that it was just great! A very polished performance by the grade 2 & 3 students with that last song bringing tears to my eyes. The students gave it their all in this presentation and are very proud of themselves as I am. Our music teachers do an amazing job with the very orderly stage transitions and the wonderful music and singing. Photos below-

Sports Assembly Preparation

Hello Parents,

Tomorrow we will sit with our buddies at an assembly, first thing in the morning, to celebrate the opening of the MRISA Middle School Soccer Championships being held here at UNIS. It is going to be noisy and exciting as classes have been given teams to support and everybody will be cheering them on. Today, with our buddies, we made signs to support our own Phoenix soccer team.  We need to wear blue clothes, if possible, to show our support too. See photos below.
