ES Leavers’ Assembly – Join us!

Dear Elementary Families,

This coming Tuesday, June 12th, our entire Elementary School from Discovery – Grade 5 will gather in the Sports Centre to close out the school year. We will use this time to farewell students and faculty members who are leaving our UNIS Hanoi community.

The assembly starts at 1.15pm and will run for approximately 30 minutes – there will be seats in the back for parents and visitors.

You are warmly welcome to join us.

Warm regards,

ES Coffee Morning: Supporting Students in Transition

Dear Parents,

We look forward to welcoming you to our final Elementary School Coffee Morning of the year on supporting students in transition, tomorrow, May 25th.

Transitions happen at the end of every year.  We are all somewhere in the cycle of arriving, leaving or being left behind. Our Elementary Counselors will help you to understand more about the transition cycle and how best to support your child, regardless of what stage of the cycle they are in.

This session is relevant for parents of all elementary school students – those who are arriving, leaving, or being left behind.  We look forward to seeing you in the Community Room, B7, at 8.30am.

Warm regards,

Megan Brazil
Elementary School Principal

Saying Farewell to our ES Teachers

Our task, regarding creativity, is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible. No one can do more.

This is the time of year when our entire community is in transition.  Members of our school community are either leaving, entering a new place, or being left behind. Transition impacts us all.  As a school, our teachers and counselors engage our students in conversations about managing transitions with resilience and positivity.

Many of our teachers are also in transition.  We are grateful to the following educators who have put their hearts and souls into creating meaningful learning experiences for our students, while contributing actively to our school values of Learning, Community and Responsibility.  We know that they have touched the lives of many students and their families during their time at UNIS Hanoi.


Aaron Davis (2 years of service) – Moving to Jordan
Andrea Marrinson (3 years of service) – Moving to Tunisia
Andrea Snyder (2 years of service) – Moving to USA
Anissa Zotos (4 years of service) – Moving to Cyprus

These teachers have all helped our students to ‘climb their own mountains’ and for that, we are incredibly grateful.  Please join me in wishing them well for their new adventures ahead as they continue to make a difference in the lives of children in other parts of the world.
