“We’ve designed bespoke activities that will be age-appropriate and engaging, but will be the least likely to require adult supervision and support, thus easing the burden on parents” said UNIS Hanoi’s Director of Activities, Tarique AlIesa.
The ASA’s will commence on Monday April 27. To register, please follow the instructions sent via email on Thursday April 16 from the UNIS Co-curricular Activities Office.

A mind map is a graphic organizer or diagram that is used to visually outline information. It’s like a large web where a central word or idea branches out into related subjects.
