Greetings from the Deputy Principal & Director of International

Welcome to Hanoi Toronto School!   

I am John Slipachenko, the Deputy Principal and Director of the International here at Hanoi Toronto School. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the students, parents, staff, and the wonderful community of HTS.  

As a Canadian professional who has made a long-term commitment to fostering academic excellence in Vietnam, I am embracing the future alongside my colleagues and you, the parents, who are our true partners in cultivating refined students.    

There are many exciting things happening at HTS that will have a positive impact on student growth and achievement. As a veteran educator and administrator, I am delighted to deliver this most exciting and unique educational opportunity to our Vietnamese and international families.   

As Director of International, I am responsible for developing curricula in both our Ontario Integrated Program and Ontario Optimized Program and facilitating the immersion of students in the Ontario Curriculum. In the Integrated Program, students can earn a Vietnamese High School Diploma and credits for subjects in the International Program. Students in the Optimized Program obtain the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, which is a gateway to a bright international academic future!  

My primary objective as the Deputy Principal is to provide a safe, secure, supportive, and inclusive learning environment for all students so that we can improve academically through excellent instruction, state-of-the-art facilities, and extra-curricular activities.  

We pride ourselves on providing individualized student academic plans to each of our students that target growth, meet expectations, and fulfill aspirations. Data collection, authentic comprehensive assessment tracking, and analysis inform our planning choices that will lead to student success.

Not only are we here to nurture and educate our students, but also to construct a framework of support in partnership with parents and Canadian educational institutions. Strong stakeholder partnerships help students thrive, so I look forward to working closely with all parents.  

Best regards,

John Slipachenko

Greetings from the Deputy Principal & Head of Vietnamese Program

Dear parents and students,

Welcome to HTS’s 2022-2023 school year.

My name’s Viet Dao, I am the Deputy Principal and Head of Vietnamese Program at Hanoi Toronto School (HTS). I am really looking forward to seeing you all at our campus and having a wonderful time together. I promise that HTS is being built to not only be a place where students are respected and accepted for their nature, but also a challenging environment for them to be their very best.

With more than 15 years of experience working in education of different levels, I am confident of my role as the Deputy Principal and Head of Vietnamese program, developing a personalized and inquiry-based curriculum which will be reviewed and updated annually. I would love to see students enjoy at least 50% of their lessons delivered in English, participating in practical subjects just like any their friends in Canada. Moreover, while students immerse themselves in different learning activities of international standards, personalized for the best academic outcomes, their physical and mental development are also prioritized. This brings them a good foundation of school education and, at the same time, gives them more choices. No matter where students choose to study and work in the future, they are well-prepared and ready to shine.

I am also proud of our team of qualified teachers who are committed to providing students with the best learning experience possible. Please rest assured that their international and diverse backgrounds are useful in preparing students to ultimately become global citizens. Indeed, this goal is clearer than ever as we see how VUCAH (Volatile – Uncertain – Complex – Ambiguous – Hyper-Connected) our world is. It is the fact that students need to learn to adapt to a fast-changing world with issues that cannot be foreseen, to do jobs that have never existed, and to take advantage of opportunities that have never been seen.

Finally, I hope you understand that family contribution and support are vital for the success of education. Therefore, I would like parents and the community to collaborate with us and actively join in the students’ learning journey. I am really looking forward to a strong partnership and positive relationships between the school’s stakeholders.

I wish you, especially the students, great success for the coming time.
