Our first ES Parent Coffee for the 2018/19 school year was held last Friday in the ‘Creativity Space’, one of our brand new learning spaces situated in the ES. A big thank you to all our parents who were able to be there. If you were unable to attend, a warm virtual welcome from the Elementary Leadership Team and the Elementary School Counselors.
The session comprised of two main sections- reconnecting, including a brief over view of our Elementary goals for the year, followed by a time for parents to contribute towards a list of possible topics we can look at covering during our regular ES Parent Coffee Mornings this school year.
The Elementary Leadership team is made up of our Principal, Megan Brazil, Deputy Principals, Stephen Lush (Upper Elementary, Grade 2-5), Nitasha Crishna Chaudhuri (Lower Elementary, Grade D-1) and Joshua Smith, our Primary Years Program Coordinator. A key function of the ES Leadership team is to continue to ensure that we provide excellent learning opportunities for each and every student and contribute to the dynamic, stimulating, caring environment for our whole school community.

Two other very important members of our Elementary faculty, are two ES school counselors, Dylan Meikle ( Grades 3-5) and Kris Bezzerides (Grades Discovery-2). Kris and Dylan work with students and teachers across the school to ensure are students feel happy, secure and ready to learn when they are at school.

UNIS Hanoi has three key values that underpin our approach to all we do at the school. They are Learning, Community and Responsibility. For returning parents, these words will be familiar to you. Our students are well versed with our three core values and they guide all our work as a community of learners. This school year, under each of these values, these are our ES goals:
- A continued focus on inclusion: ensuring all our students are successful
- A continued focus on differentiation
- Focusing on our model of how to best serve our English Language Learners (EAL program)
- Building community through a culture of kindness
- Continuing to strengthen the culture of coaching
- A renewed focus on sustainability via the UN Sustainable Development Goals
- Strengthening service learning in the ES
The Elementary Leadership Team would love to hear from you about your experience in the ES and about possible topics you would like to learn more about this year-please take a few minutes to fill in the google form below which will be very useful information as we put together the program for Parent Coffee mornings for the year.
