Athletics Programme at Hanoi International School
Here at Hanoi International School we believe in a balanced program where students can develop new skills and take away experiences above what the academic program has to offer. We believe that a good after school athletics program will be beneficial for students in later life. We encourage and strive to promote a healthy lifestyle, enjoyment, skills development, camaraderie/friendships and respect.
For elementary level the aim is to get students involved and active. We would like them to be involved in as many sports and activities as possible to increase the chance of an all-round skill development, teamwork and enjoyment.
The middle school (grade 6-8) and high school (grade 9-12) participate in local and international associations. The middle and high school both compete in local sport matches in Hanoi as part of the HAC league. We also participate internationally as part of the MRISA league.
