Today we will celebrate our students’ work. Awards ceremonies can make it seem as if recognition belongs to a few but awesome is a group effort. Every act of courage and kindness deserves recognition. Thank you for another great year of drama performances, music, art, teamwork, countless acts of kindness, laughter, helping others and the list goes on. Awards are a time-honored tradition where we try to capture a year of contributions, a year of countless rehearsals, acts of courage, creativity, and learning from others. A year of building relationships and friendships, of helping others find their way and making UNIS Hanoi and the world a better place.
