Tết is just around the corner!

Tết or VIETNAMESE NEW YEAR marks the biggest and most significant festival in Vietnamese culture. It is an occasion for the Vietnamese people to show their respect to their parents, ancestors as well as welcoming the New Year with the entire family members. According to the Lunar Calendar, 2020 New Year’s Day falls on Saturday, January 25th. This year is the year of the RAT.

During this week, all students from ECC up to Grade 5 in Vietnamese class have been so busy making Banh Chung – Vietnamese sticky rice cake for Tet. It is a wonderful learning experience for our UNIS Hanoi students to explore the tradition of the host country.

At UNIS Hanoi, the Elementary students will have Tết assemblies on Thursday, January 23rd in the theatre. The assemblies are hosted by Grades 1, 3 and 5 students who attend Vietnamese classes.

Two performances are scheduled as bellows:

  • Performance 1 for Grade 2,3,4,5: From 8.30 – 9.20
  • Performance 2 for Grade 1,  ECC and parents: From 9.25a – 10.15

Parents are kindly invited to the second assembly to join us for this special event. Everybody is encouraged to wear “Áo dài” on the day to welcome TET. 

CHÚC MỪNG NĂM MỚI!
