This year, as part of the commitment to Community Service, we have launched the involvement with the “Sound of Light Project”. Lead by Trần Thanh Thúy, this project is working to link BVIS Royal City with Nguyễn Đình Chiểu School for visually impaired students. Sixteen BVIS secondary students are volunteering in a technology-communication based initiative to create long term resources for the students of Nguyễn Đình Chiểu in the form of radio blog podcasts.
Currently in the initial training stage, these 16 students have been looking to understand the fine art of communication through radio medium along with building an appreciation for the delicate method of communicating with the less-able bodied.
Students have enjoyed the sessions tremendously. However above all they have been increasing their ability to empathise with others. Soon they will begin the process of learning how to build a script, record, edit and deliver a fully produced radio blog. We, as staff, are excited by the enthusiasm shown and are looking forward to the long term relationship in the “Sound Of Light Project”.
