Sunday of Service

On Sunday May 6 we will enjoy a day for our UNIS Hanoi community to give a Birthday Gift back to our host country by taking part in a Sunday of Service!

Service is central to all that we do at UNIS Hanoi and so what better way to celebrate as a community! This will be a day for all! Families can join with faculty and staff and alumni to participate in a variety of different options;

  • Helping the Grade 6 students with their Moonbears project in Tam Dao Moon Bear sanctuary - SORRY THIS TRIP IS FULL
  • Clean Up trip with the Grade 9 team
  • Sport & Team Games with local service groups
  • Music and Art Activities for children with special needs from the Peace Village Centre
  • DIY - Bees Wax Food Covering Project with Grade 5 students
  • Learn to read programme - flash card creation

The day will end with an informal gathering at a local family-friendly 'watering hole' - The Turtle Lake Brewing Company - to informally share your experiences and enjoy an early dinner.
