Our Alumni - Our Story

UNIS Hanoi is proud to be connected with its worldwide family of alumi - anyone who has attended UNIS Hanoi is considered to be an alum, including their families and former staff and faculty. Our hope is that our alumni will always remain connected with each other, with UNIS Hanoi and with Vietnam. With everyone’s help we hope to keep growing our world-wide alumni family.

Initially started in 1988 with 12 students in two classes, as of the start of the this school year, UNIS Hanoi has the privilege of welcoming more than 1100 students on campus every day, learning through a programme founded in the UN Principles.

One thing that has not changed during its long history is the importance of the school community, and UNIS Hanoi is making a special effort to reconnect with former families and faculty.

Alumni play an active role in the UNIS Hanoi community. Several regional reunions are held each year, giving our former students and teachers a chance to reconnect. UNIS Hanoi alumni all share a special experience from their time at UNIS Hanoi and we hope to celebrate the history of the school with as many of our alumni as possible. 

 

Latest News for Alumni

Duy Nguyen (Class of 2006) started the page Closer to Earth as an initiative to share actionable steps that everyone could take to make a positive impact on our planet, whether it's going zero waste, ideas/ works that turned single used wastes into useful items or projects.

Duy shared, "I really believe that one of the best ways to help raise awareness is that we just have to start with ourselves. We run an e-commerce business selling children's products, and it really bothered me seeing the amount of packaging waste that would accumulate over time. Since we already have an audience of thousands of customers and growing, I thought there's no better way to spread the words through our products. Starting October 2019, we will start to replace our current packaging to using the reusable pouch for packaging and D2W biodegradable mailer bags and will continue to find ways to address the problem."

The Impact Fund is still looking for a representative from the Alumni Community for the Impact Fund Committee 2019-2020.

Over the 7-8 September weekend, Dr Chip Barder (Alumni Head of School) was back at UNIS Hanoi to co-facilitate the sixth Governance as Leadership Training Institute for international school board members and administrators from the South East Asia Region and beyond. The Training Workshop is designed to help boards and their school heads work together to improve the level of governance at their schools.

Sofia and Erik Cunelius (Alumni Faculty/Staff) found out that Linnea Niklasson (Class of 2019) was coming back to Sweden after graduating in May 2019 and organized a mini reunion in their home in Stockholm. Sofia was Linnea's Swedish teacher at UNIS Hanoi in Grade 6 and 7 and her husband Erik Cunelius was the soccer coach during this period. Linnea got to meet Sofia and Erik's two new family members while talking memories. Sofia is working at an IB school in Stockholm.

The UNIS Impact Fund is a new programme which will support both students' learning and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals as we work together to embrace a future with hope. This new project fund will be coordinated by a cross-community committee made up of students, parents, teachers, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni. And we would like to hear from you if you are interested in being involved.
