UNIS Alphabet created by Discovery

A3 size card poster

Dear Discovery Parents,

Your children have worked hard in their recent art lessons to create each letter of the alphabet from clay. Photos of these letters have been used to make this unique UNIS alphabet. We are selling the posters and cards to raise money for Service Learning here at UNIS which will in turn benefit those in need in and around Hanoi. We will be selling the cards and posters at the Spring Fair on Sunday 25th March but I would like to offer you the chance to buy them before they go on sale to the general public. If you would like to buy either cards of posters please visit your child’s classroom and ask a TA or teacher. Both cost 50,000 VND each, please provide the exact money.

Many thanks in advance,
Emma Hamilton
