Message from the Board of Directors

Officers of the Board for 2020-2021

I am delighted to announce that the following Board officers were approved for the 2020-2021 school year.  Board officers serve in that capacity for one year. 

Board Officers/Executive Committee
Board Chair: Dr. Amie Pollack
Vice Chair: Ms. Ngo Thi Quynh Hoa
Treasurer: Mr. Hieu Nguyen
Secretary: Ms Maria Chung

Over the summer the Board will continue to liaise with the Head of School re the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on enrollments and school finances while monitoring  travel restrictions, quarantines and the anticipated arrival of our new families and staff. A Finance Committee and Board Meeting will be scheduled at the end of July to review enrollment numbers with a view to reforecasting the 2020-2021 school budget if necessary. Details will be shared with the community in early August as soon as school returns. 

A Call for Volunteers for 2020-2021

Before we all break for the summer, I would like to ask you to consider volunteering at the school next year.

The Board of Directors at UNIS are all volunteers and we depend upon other members of the community to volunteer their time and talents for the benefit of the School. There are many ways you can help the school. The following are some examples:

  • Class parent representative
  • School Community Organisation (SCO)
  • Booster Club
  • Spring Fair
  • Volunteering for a Board committee or task force

If you would like to volunteer on a Board committee or task force next year, please send your CV and bio to Board of Directors Administrator, Maeve O’Donovan, at

Have a wonderful summer

Thank you to the Board, Committee and Task Force members and everyone who worked so hard during this difficult year to support the school and our children. We hope the summer break will allow much needed rest and recuperation. Safe travels, we look forward to welcoming you back in August. And best of luck to those families leaving Hanoi this summer. We wish you well and encourage you to keep in contact via our Alumni network. 

Have a great summer! 

Amie Pollack
Board Chair
