Hanova PYP recently hosted our annual Read-a-thon. This year’s Read-a-thon theme was “Reading Adventure 2021: Where will reading take you?” And what an adventure it was! Our students set extra reading goals and rose to the challenge showing how truly amazing they are.
The Hanova Heroes have been looking forward all school year to the Spring 2021 football season! The team began practicing in March and played their first game on 9th April at the Maple Leaf campus.
Over the course of five weekends in October and November, Hanova’s Primary students played football in a local city Football league. After announcing the opportunity, we received such a supportive and wonderful response from our parents and students that Hanova was able to submit three full teams into the league!
On Saturday, 27th October, Hanova’s secondary basketball team participated in an international school tournament in Xi’an. We are proud of our team for their hard work, great play and good sportsmanship!
On Friday April 20th, our Inter-house Sports Day was a great success. In the end the weather was kind to us and all the children had fun.
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. It was a lot of fun and leading the pack so far are Kai Trull, Rose Jiang and Leo Hu.
Last Friday 27th at 4pm our Secondary Basketball team began its season, with a match against XHIS. This is a new young team, after Hanova lost almost the whole previous team due to graduation and relocation.
Our Primary football team started their season full of excitement and commitment. The team also has new players, who are bringing a lot of energy into the practices. Last Friday 20th at 3pm the team played their first friendly game against the Primary Football Club of Bodi School.
Last Friday before the holiday, the PYP classes enjoyed sports and fun games as part of House activity day. This is the first of many House activities planned for students to earn House points, learn group skills and get to know students from different classes.
