On Friday, 18th September, our PYP staff organised ‘Reading Buddies’ – a programme in which younger and older students are paired up for reading together throughout the school year. Reading Buddies helps build a community where students can read together and respect one another, regardless of age differences.
One of the fundamental tenets of the IB Diploma CAS programme is ‘think global; act local’. We are really happy that we will donate the second rural library through a worthwhile beneficiary – ChunShan Educational Foundation (http://www.chunshan.org) with the funds that the Hanova community has so generously raised in 2019.
After the challenging start to 2020, the Hanova community was excited to finish last school year and summer school back on the school campus. We are grateful that we were able to begin the new 2020-21 school year on campus as well – and it is very obvious on the smiling faces of our students! It is nice to be “back in the classroom!”
