Upcoming College Fair, 3rd December

By Francesco Masetti-Placci

Dear Parents and friends,

College Fair. Six US universities will visit Hanova on 3rd December at 2:30pm in the Auditorium, for a College Fair focused on Summer Programs, often an excellent way for students to increase knowledge and prepare the application to selected international universities. The institutions are:

  • Johns Hopkins University
  • Boston University
  • The George Washington University
  • University of Colorado, Boulder
  • University of Virginia
  • Washington University in St. Louis

Again, parents are strongly recommended to come! If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact our University and Careers Counselor Ms. Zhu ( ).

PYP News. Thank you to all parents for the great attendance at the Parent Teacher Conferences in November. Your presence and interaction shows the commitment to your children and to our school.

Teachers and students cordially invite all parents to our PYP Christmas Performance. Please book your reservation through the below link: . Students will attend both performances and school buses will leave the school as usual on Wednesday 9th December (3:40pm). On Thursday 10th December students will stay in school until the end of the performance, thus they must be picked up by parents around 7:30pm.

First Hanova Christmas Market. Please come and bring friends to Hanova’s Christmas Market. It will be a great community event, with fun, food and activities, while also thinking of others, especially at this time of the year. All of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Elim Kids Orphanage in Xi’an. A big thank you already to all our teachers, parents and sponsors who have invested so much effort to organize this festive time together!

Information Sessions and Upcoming Events. As we approach the end of the Semester, we continue to hold regular sessions to communicate with parents and students. A brief reminder of the upcoming school information events:

  • Library “Red Ribbon” activity, from 1st to 4th December
  • College Fair (Summer Programs) on 3rd December
  • Christmas Market on 5th December
  • MYP Parent Conference, scheduled for 9th December
  • PYP Christmas Concert, scheduled for 9th and 10th December
  • On Thursday 10th December, Hanova U16 Football and Basketball teams will be travelling to the Bo-Ai International School for our first of the season matches.

Thanks again for your continuing support.
