Welcome from your SCO Parent Reps!

The School Community Organisation (SCO) Executive Committee would like to warmly welcome all parents, faculty and staff to the new school year 2020-2021! The SCO Executive Committee is a group of parent volunteers whose mission is to help “enhance and foster partnerships throughout the school community in support of the UNIS Hanoi’s Mission and Vision”. We do this mainly by organising and supporting¬†community-building activities and events and by bridging connections among parents, administration and faculty across different parts of the school.¬†

In addition, the SCO supports parent-led committees and groups that organise events and activities throughout the year.

We encourage you all to join the UNIS Hanoi Parent Facebook groups. These groups were created by UNIS Hanoi parents in partnership with the School and serve as helpful tools for parents to stay connected, share information and parenting resources and stay updated on events. To join you will be asked to answer a few questions. Please make sure that you answer the questions to confirm that you are a UNIS Hanoi parent.

UNIS Hanoi ES Parents (Discovery – Grade 5)

UNIS Hanoi MSHS Parents (Grades 6-12)

Also, please note the information shared by the School about publishing your contact email on the Parent Portal Household Directory:

Please use this QUICK GUIDE for detailed information on how to update your Household Profile. By publishing your contact information to the parent community in our password protected portal directory you are opening up a world of connectivity within our UNIS Hanoi community; Our School Community Organisation (SCO) can send you invites and updates, parents of your child’s friends can find you, and it makes organising playdates or zoomdates (!) a lot easier! It’s designed as a resource for you!

More information will come your way soon about ways to connect within your division, class and/or Grade, so please make sure your contact information is published in the Household Profile on Veracross so that we can reach out to you. Please feel free to reach out to us anytime and with any questions. We are here to support you! 

With our best wishes for a fabulous SY2020-2021,

Susan, Poul, Pippa, Garry and Haruko
