The festive spirit of Tết, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year, was in full swing at BIS Hanoi as students, teachers, and staff came together for a vibrant assembly showcasing cultural performances and traditions.

The assembly kicked off with a warm welcome from the principal, setting the tone for the joyful celebration ahead. Year 2, 3, 4, and 5 students opened the stage, captivating the audience with a mesmerising spring dance inspired by the traditions of a northern minority group, titled "Mùa Xuân Tây Bắc."

Continuing the cultural immersion, Year 3 and 6 students took the stage to present "Năm Mới Bình An," a performance welcoming the New Year with wishes of peace and prosperity. This was followed by a heartfelt "Em Chào Tết!" from Year 4 and 6 students, marking the beginning of the Year of the Dragon with gratitude and excitement.  

The assembly then took a historical turn as our Secondary students showcased "Việt Sử Kiêu Hùng," depicting the glorious history of Vietnam and the resilience of its people in the face of adversity. Their portrayal of Vietnamese victories and the pursuit of peace resonated deeply with the audience. 

Gratitude was extended to all students for their exceptional performances, which added to the richness of the Tết celebration. The climax of the assembly came with the traditional dragon dance, a symbol of strength, good fortune, and auspicious beginnings, performed with skill and enthusiasm by the students. 

As the assembly concluded, the spirit of unity and joy lingered in the air, leaving everyone inspired and filled with anticipation for the new beginnings that Tết brings. 

Our Tết assembly was not only a celebration of cultural heritage but also a testament to the school's commitment to fostering understanding and appreciation of Vietnamese traditions among its diverse community.
