Pecha Kucha Presentations during MS Individual and Societies Classes

Dear MS Parents,

MS Individuals & Societies classes have been preparing for a Pecha Kucha presentation that will showcase their research and communication skills. Each student is preparing a topic, researching it, organizing it, and then presenting it to their classmates and parents. All parents are invited to come and see their children present and support their learning, but we will also record the presentations and email them home.

Pecha Kucha will take place between December 4 and 12 – please check your email for the time and date for your child’s presentation or contact their I&S teacher if you have questions.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!

Presentation on North Korea

On Thursday, September 24, Ms Sitara Syed, UNDP Deputy Resident Representative in Viet Nam, presented to the Grade 8 Individuals and Societies students.

Ms Sitara Syed, whose children are attending UNIS Hanoi, is a recent arrival to Viet Nam with her family, but comes from a long association with the UN. In her more than 15 years with the UN she has served in a variety of roles for the UNDP and since 2014 was Coordination and Liaison Specialist in UNDP’s Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific in New York.

Ms Syed shared her observations on North Korea, where she spent two months as UN delegate in the summer of 2019. Her observations were an excellent and enriching addition to our current unit of study, Citizenship and Protest.
