Welcome to Elementary School!
It is with particular pleasure that I write this welcome to UNIS Hanoi as the Elementary Principal. Personally and professionally, I am delighted to be leading such a forward thinking and outward looking faculty with members who seek continual improvement for the sake of our students and their learning.
Two important Educational Beliefs guide our work at UNIS Hanoi:
- Education is a process - not a race
- Education is a partnership
The development of the whole child is at the heart of what we do; learning in the Elementary School is about developing personal, emotional and social skills as well as being an intellectual and academic process. We aim to help children find their voice - their own unique, personal significance. We encourage them to think about what their contribution will be in the world - how they will try to make a difference as responsible and engaged members of the school community as well as citizens of the world.
Above all, we are interested in the learning process - learning how to learn and how to apply skills and knowledge across an ever-increasing spectrum of experience. From the earliest age we ensure that children have an enjoyable experience of school and are motivated to learn and improve.
This positive attitude is supported by a team of highly professional teachers who are themselves engaged in lifelong learning and model effective habits of mind.
Please take the time to explore our website and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
