Support literacy initiatives by donating your used books!
The much anticipated SCO Used Book Sale will be held on May 5 & 6, 2017 this year!
The active Homeroom Book Donation Competition begins TODAY and ends on April 28! Time to sort through those bookshelves and donate your pre-loved books:
- Do you have books that you no longer need that someone else would enjoy?
- Are you leaving Hanoi in June and don’t want to ship all of your books to your next posting?
- Do you want to donate your books to promote literacy in Vietnam?
The Book Sale will be glad to accept your books. Used Book Sale is an opportunity for both kids and adults to purchase some ‘pre-loved’ books, in their native tongue (or another language!), at bargain prices.
Kids’ books, adults’ books, fact or fiction, English, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese, German, Swedish, French – we’re interested in books on any subject, in any language spoken within the UNIS Hanoi community. If it’s a book that someone else might enjoy, donate it (please no out-dated travel guides, class readers or inappropriate books please!).
Books will be collected in each ECC/ES and MS classroom. HS will have one central collection box in front of Common Room.
Where does all the money go?
The funds raised at the SCO Used Book Sale will be used to empower a variety of literacy projects created and led by UNIS Hanoi students through the Service Learning Programme. Currently, a Middle School service group is working in collaboration with a Grade 12 design student to develop a library in a school in Pu Bin and more literacy initiatives are in the works!
A lot of volunteers are needed to help sort/price books and then sell during the book Sale. This year, the SCO has decided that each hard-working volunteer will have the opportunity to pre-purchase 1 book per 1.5 hour shift!
Book Sorting: April 20 and May 3 from 8.00 – 11.00 (Canteen)
Book Sales: May 5 from 8.00 – 16.30 and May 6 from 8.00 – 13.00 (Centre for the Arts)

Next week, students will start their swimming unit and will be swimming in every PE lesson for the next 6 weeks. May 4th will be the culminating event – ES Grades 2 and 3 Swim Meet. It will be an afternoon occasion with all students and homeroom teachers involved.
Please discuss with you children what swim gear they will need to bring (cap, goggles, one-piece swim suit and a towel) on PE days. Encourage them to label each item including their bag. This way we will be able to keep track of lost and found belongings.
Here is a link to the ES Aquatics blog if you have any further questions.
Due to possible allergic reactions students are not to share daily personal snacks. The only time snacks can be shared are during special events that have been prearranged with your teacher. These snacks should be individually wrapped or packaged and nut free. Please refer to the Elementary School Handbook for more information.
Remind the kids to Eat Your Snack! Enjoy Your Snack! Love Your Snack! Yeah!!!
