The UNIS Moveathon is taking place next Tuesday! This community event will be the finale to UNovember month and it also happens on Giving Tuesday – a global movement that reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and radical generosity.
On November 30 we encourage EVERYONE in our community to Move the World together!
There will be a special 30 minute schedule at 8.45 for all students, parents, faculty and staff to be active, have fun together with live sporting activities or challenges at your choice. Moveathon is also an opportunity to raise money for our Emergency Relief Fund to help some of Vietnam’s most vulnerable children through our closest service learning partners such as Blossom House, Koto, and Blue Dragon!
In Elementary School, the PE team has already been leading our youngest learners in regular Morning Movement as a warm up to the UNovember finale. The ES PHE team will share a set routine/game that the teachers or TAs can do directly with their students on the day. Or Parents are welcome to join students and use the links (details below) to take part in one of the activities via one way Zoom webinar.
In Secondary School, students are already up with their sponsorship plan to raise funds for their service learning partners: Blossom House, Koto, and Blue Dragon!. Students can use this sponsorship form to choose the organisation they want to support and the target number of minutes they want to complete and collect sponsors to raise money for their service partners! They can earn points for their homebase as an individual or a group. All points earned as groups or individuals are added to homebase score for winning prizes.
