Register Now for our Free and Flexible Summer Programme

Parents can now register their child onto the School’s Free Summer Programme. Exclusively for UNIS Hanoi students, this year’s programme is designed to be fun-filled and stimulating. Seventy teachers, together with teaching assistants and student leaders have volunteered to offer sessions for students of all ages. There’s also a bonus trip for the more adventurous Middle Schoolers – a 5-day outdoor educational trip to Ninh Binh!


The Summer Programme will run for four weeks, commencing on June 15 to July 10. 

On Offer to Elementary School Students

Families with Elementary School students will have the option of registering their child for one week, two or three weeks, or for the entire four weeks. Students in Grades 1 to 5 will be able to enjoy STEAM classes, movement and games, dance, music, as well as arts and crafts. Math and literacy classes will also be on offer, while children who speak English as a Second Language will be pulled out of class and given specialized instruction throughout the week. Students in Discovery up to Kindergarten 2 will have free reign of the Early Childhood Centre, where they’ll play educational games, cook and socialize with their friends. 

Elementary School sessions will run from Mondays to Fridays, 08:30 to 15:20, however parents also have the option to register for half-days and collect their child straight after lunchtime, once the teacher has been notified ahead of time. 

What’s more, Elementary School students will enjoy lunch and transportation, absolutely free of charge!

On Offer to Middle and High School Students

Middle and High School students are also in for a treat! Their teachers are offering almost 100 phenomenal Passion Pursuits for them to try their hands at. If your child has ever wanted to create a Podcast, learn how to breakdance, do some woodwork or want to get ahead in the SATs and Extended Essay, now’s the chance! And there’s even more flexibility available to our older kids. They can book one two-hour session a week or pack their entire week with activities – the choice is completely theirs. And just like the Elementary School students, they can commit to one week or all four! Students have been sent the full array of offerings by email. Free snacks and transportation to and from school is included. 

Passion Pursuit sessions will run from Mondays to Fridays, 08:30 to 15:30. 

An Outdoor Education Field Trip to Ninh Binh!

For Middle Schoolers who love the great outdoors, four faculty members, including the School nurse, will head to Ninh Binh with them from June 22 to June 26. 

The team is promising a week of ‘wild learning’, during which students are certain to develop new skills such as fishing, fire-building, paddle boarding (SUP), nature sketching, survival first aid, wildlife identification and cooking!

What’s more, there will be opportunities to hike and bike. The group will depart UNIS Hanoi at 08:00 on Monday June 22 and return to the School at 16:00 on Friday June 26.

Every Student Guaranteed a Spot on FREE Summer Programme!

Every student, from Discovery through to Grade 12, is guaranteed a spot on this year’s free four-week Summer Programme!

Plans are well underway to offer students a fun and flexible experience, comprising a wide variety of activities designed to spark the diverse interests of UNIS Hanoi students. Students will be able to participate in a wide variety of activities and can sign up for one to four of the weeks available. The programme is designed to be completely flexible. 

Commenting on the programme, Tarique Al-Iesa, Director of Activities, said, “We’re super excited about the programme on offer. We consulted students and parent groups when designing this year’s event to ensure we provided something for everyone. We will make activities available online also so that students who are not in Vietnam but would like to take part, can still join in.”

The free programme is valued at more than $500 per student per week and we are grateful to the faculty and staff who have agreed to give up their summer weeks to support our students.

Students in Early Childhood and Elementary School can select enrichment sessions in math and literacy, EAL, STEAM, Social/Activity Time and ‘Choice’. A full programme will be shared when registration opens.

The Secondary School programme will offer many options to allow for students to pursue their areas of passion and interest without the need to commit to a full day.  Secondary school students want to order from an a la carte menu of ‘Passion Pursuits’. Some ideas students have put forward include a talent Showcase, Sports/Tournaments, Design, Engineering, Theatre, Art Exploration, Drawing, SAT prep and EE Workshop (for Grade 10 students). 

Full details, including how to register, will be sent to parents on May 14 with a deadline of May 21, 2020. 

The first week of the 2020 UNIS Hanoi Summer Programme will commence on Monday June 15, with the final week commencing on July 6.  Come join the fun!
