APS Celebrates Tet

Tet Assembly this year was the one to remember. Not only were the performances spectacular, it was an opportunity for Vietnamese students to demonstrate BIS learning skills.

  • Tet Assembly 17-9983
  • Tet Assembly 17-9857
  • Tet Assembly 17-9811
  • Tet Assembly 17-9782
  • Tet Assembly 17-9729

This year, I collaborated with two year 9 students, it took a lot of critical thinking to work together and plan all of our rehearsal times, we sometimes had creative differences but we had to communicate through it. Furthermore, it definitely took a lot of risk taking to be able to perform in front of the whole school.

Tet Assembly is always such a big celebration of Vietnamese culture and Lunar New Year’s culture overall for Asian students, but this year, it feels even more festive with all of the teachers wearing our traditional ao dai and embracing our cultures. I was really excited to see all of the smiling faces across the auditorium when Harry and Ken Lau were presenting about Lunar New Year and Tet culture points.

Overall, I’m glad I get to share apart my culture with all of the students here and it’s truly a shame that I won’t be able to participate as much next year because I’ll be in Year 13, but I’m content with my last Tet contribution and I really can’t wait to sit back to enjoy next year's.

Vicky Duong, Year 12

The Vietnamese Lunar New Year starts on Saturday 28th 2017. TET is considered the biggest and most popular festival of the year in Vietnam. It is the occasion for all Vietnamese people to respect their ancestors and welcome the New Year with the beloved family members. In an effort to get rid of the bad luck, people will spend a few days cleaning their homes and decorating houses.

Like the other Asian countries, red and yellow can be seen everywhere as those colours will bring good fortune. At BIS HCMC, TET has been celebrated with performances from students and staff and some activities such as writing TET cards and calligraphy. “ CHÚC NĂM MỚI PHÁT TÀI VÀ VUI VẺ” is always a popular wish to all.

Mai Le, Head of Vietnamese Studies
