Hanova’s first Secondary Parents Information Afternoon

Dear Parents and friends

Hanova's first Secondary Parents Information Afternoon - written by Ms Sharon Zhu, DP Coordinator. Hanova will host its first Secondary School Parents Information Afternoon on 15th September. On that day, you will find the information sessions about the IB Middle Years Programme and the IB Diploma Programme.

For the Diploma Programme, you will have an overview of what the IB Diploma Programme is and how the assessments work by attending the information session. It is not only open to our DP parents, any parents from MYP or PYP who are interested in knowing the IB Diploma Programme are welcome!

For the Middle Years Programme, you will learn about components in MYP through an introduction of the MYP Programme Model. In addition, Academic Integrity Policy and MYP Assessment Policy will be introduced. Afterwards, there will be an MYP Personal Project session. We would strongly encourage all Year 11 parents to stay behind for this session, while all parents who are interested in this topic are welcome to attend. Please find below information the schedule for 15th September.

New Year/New Sport Kits - written by Mr Paul Robinson, Director of Sports.  This year is a new era for the Hanova Hawks. In order to further develop the Hanova Hawks identity around Xi’an and beyond, the school has gone through a period of redesigning the team kits for both Basketball and Football. This is to incorporate the school logo, the Hanova Hawks logo and the Hanova green and red. 

We were assisted in this process with the company K12 who design custom made and bespoke kits for school sports teams along with other apparel. We are delighted to be working with K12 who work with a number of international schools in China and in other parts of Asia. On the K12 company website parents and students purchase kit directly, which is more efficient for everyone involved.

We have just completed the “buying period” for the PYP football kits and as the Secondary Basketball and football seasons approach as well as the PYP basketball seasons the online shop will be reopened (we will let parents and players know when the “buying periods” are for the kits closer to their seasons beginning.

We are confident that our teams are going to stand-out from the rest with these bespoke kits.
