Before the holiday we sent our Community Link School, An Ha around sixty ‘pen pal’ letters, from the children in Ms Suong’s after school club and also from other KS2 children who were keen to be involved.
We are delighted to report that today, the children received their replies.
Ms Tam visited An Ha School to deliver the letters and she said that the children were very excited to be involved in such a project, where they can learn about the lives of other children who live in Ho Chi Minh City. They were thankful to BVIS for their support.
Most children at An Ha School would like to make friends with our children because they want to know more about BIVS and also want to share learning experiences.
Some children expressed their appreciation to the on-going support from our school. Thanh Thao, a Y5 girl, said, “My teacher told me that your school helps my school a lot. Your school always supports poor children.”
The children were very enthusiastic to become acquainted with the BVIS children and quickly replied introducing themselves, their families, their hobbies and telling their ‘pen pal’ about the challenges they face living in a poor area where their families don’t have a high income, working hard to overcome their difficulties.
The learning for BVIS children from this project is linked to our Aide Memoire words: Caring, Enquiry, Reflection and Global Citizens. We will keep you up to date about the budding new friendships and should you wish your son or daughter to participate in the scheme, please ask them to talk to their teacher.
