March is Readathon month in Primary, where we encourage students to READ, READ , READ at home as much as possible. As it is Dr Suess’s birthday on March 2nd, PYP classes will celebrate this iconic author with dress up days next week and lots of fun literacy activities in class and in the Library.
Today we will break again to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the Spring Festival, the most important holiday in China. Today we all participated in the school activities before going on holiday.
Happy Year of the Dog!
Hanova Library would like to thank our community for supporting our “Hanova Reading Challenge” activity during the Christmas Holiday! We have received lots of amazing reading pictures, showing the commitment of our students, teachers and staff! Last week…
We encourage all our students to keep reading and continue to visit our Library when possible. A number of amazing reading pictures are displayed on the library doors to show the enthusiasm in our school.
PYP classes are currently doing “Reading Buddies” sessions together every second Friday, where older classes read to younger classes or do a Literacy activity together. Year 1a and Year 4a have also extended this to “Maths Buddies”!
Welcome back! We start now the Second Semester of this Academic Year, with the next Festive Season arriving with the Chinese New Year and the Spring Festival celebrations. Hereafter the news for this first school week in 2018.
Hereafter the news related to this last week of school in 2017. From next week we will all break for the Winter Holidays. Winter celebrations date back to ancient times, already taking place both in the old Roman and Chinese Empires.
This week we had two outstanding performances from our PYP students, who presented their annual Winter Concert entitled “The Crazy Alarm Clock” on Wednesday 6th and Friday 8th December. The shows were a great success, and all the PYP students were deeply engaged and excited to be on stage.
Last Friday saw the introduction of a new sport at Hanova – archery. Under the watchful eye of our Athletic Director, Mr. Lynn, the IB Diploma students in Years 12 and 13 learned how to construct their bows, observe safety measures and had their first target practice.
Two of our students, Micah Rice (Year 11) and Jade Borisrame (Year 6b), both won complimentary prizes in the Little Star magazine’s “A Green Future” art competition.
