This week, we started our first block of Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs). Our ECAs have always been very popular because the students get the chance to select some of the favorite experiences that they participate in at school.
Hanova places significant emphasis on learning beyond the classroom, to challenge our students and help them develop skills to become balanced individuals and leaders.
The Year 12 students have been working very hard in organizing the first IB Diploma CAS Excursion for Years 12 and 13, as part of their EOTC and CAS programme.
We are now progressing in our First Semester of school, and you will soon receive more information about the additional activities that will complement the students’ learning beyond the classroom.
We are completing our second week of school in this new academic year. More students and teachers have joined us during this week, and we still expect the final few during next week. We also continue to adjust the routines and the school operations. For any inquiry about the school logistics, contact Ms. Yang firstname.lastname@example.org of our Marketing and Liaison team.

Our fifth year has continued to see the school progress to become an excellent international school: last summer we received authorization for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), this winter we became an official member of the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS), in spring we joined the WIDA Language Consortium and became an authorized center for the Associate Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM), and finally we closed the school year with the graduation of our first cohort of IB Diploma students and hosting the verification visit to obtain authorization for the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP).
On Monday and Tuesday this week our IB PYP Authorisation Visit was completed. We hosted Mrs. Rima Singh and Mrs. Patricia Whatarau, as representatives from the IBO who visited classes, spoke with teachers, parents and students, viewed necessary planning and documentation to ensure our Primary section and the overall school are meeting the requirements of the IB PYP Standards and Practices.
This year our Year 4 and 5 had an exciting 2 days camping experience at Jing Yu Hu (鲸鱼湖) Whale Lake Xi’an city, in Ba Qiao district. Students had the opportunity to be risk-takers and sleep in tents. They actually did an amazing job in putting up their tents all by themselves!
