Personal Project Exhibition. Our Year 11 students have been working hard throughout the year on their Personal Project. The Personal Project is an individual piece of work which allows students to focus on their approach to learning and organisation skills, as well as attempting to develop a product or outcome. They have studied a variety of topics including painting, website development and dance and are excited to have the opportunity to show the community what they have achieved. The Personal Project Exhibition will take place on Friday, June 6th at 9:35am following assembly. All members of the community are invited that morning to view their work and enjoy light refreshments in the library. We look forward to seeing you there!
Art Exhibition. The school’s Art Exhibition will be opening in the morning straight after the Dragon Boat Festival. Please put this in your diary if you would like to come – 9am on Tuesday, 3rd June, when there will be light refreshments and an opportunity to be the first to see the art work displayed throughout the school.
Prom for International Teens in Xi’an (PIT-X). Last Saturday evening, students in Year 9-13 in all international schools in the city were invited to the 2nd annual PIT-X event, this year held at Kempinski Hotel. Most schools participated by organising entertaining activities and donating Lucky Draw prizes. About 60 students attended this year and everyone enjoyed the food and fun activities. For many students, the opportunity to expand their social network by developing new friendships was the best part of PIT-X. Students from various schools in Xi’an are already planning to work together to organise next year’s Prom.
Photo Day. Thank you for sending your child in their green polo shirt this Wednesday (28th May). We were pleased to have Jon Rice in taking photos of all the students and staff. These photos will be sent home by the end of the year in a format yet to be decided.
Year 3 Field Trip. Last Thursday, Year 3 enjoyed a wonderful field trip to a local village house. The students enjoyed various activities related to our unit on how people interact with their environment. They made miniature shelters from sticks, leaves, rocks, and twine. We had some very creative designs and one group even made a houseboat! The students also enjoyed a nature scavenger hunt. We ended the day by leaving a good “legacy” in the environment by making bird feeders and hanging them in the trees surrounding the village house.
Parent Volunteer Group. Mark your calendars! We would like to invite all of our parent volunteers to a “Volunteer Thank You Tea.” Please join us in the staff room on Thursday, June 5th at 3:45pm. We hope to see you there so that we can thank you for the time you have invested into making Hanova a great school for our students. Please RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to let us know if you are coming.
