Happy Teachers’ Day!

 November 20th is the biggest celebration day for the teachers in Vietnam.

This morning, during the Children's International Parade, some children and parents (from France, Australia, Singapore, Vietnam) made a French duck dance performance called “La Danse des Carnards”, to celebrate Teacher's Day.

All the children with their national costume joined in the dance and showed their appreciation towards all TX teachers.  In addition to the performance, TX parents group prepared the gifts for the class teachers and all of the specialists teachers. 

This year's international week ended together with the joy of the Teacher's Day celebration!

Looking back at International Week…

"Mom, I don’t know why, but I think the international week is my favourite week of the year." 

That’s my 8 year old boy's words when coming back from school on Wednesday this week.  I have a pretty clear idea why he does like it ;)  It’s also one of my favourite times at TX.  I started to wonder what would be the best moment of the week?  So here is a sample from parents and their favourite time this week.

"My favourite moment is when I get to see my good friends dressed up in their national costumes.  For example, Akiko and Minori looked great in the kimonos."  Adeline (Singapore)


"My favourite moment is when I was busy doing art and crafts, my friend Mina, from Italy, got me a cup coffee."  Florence (Malaysia)

"My favourite moment would be the Year4 kids excitement and loud cheers for their teachers when Mr Mike and Ms Ellie had the sumo fight."  Chitra (India)

"My favourite was to see some people and kids came back to Italy on the buffet to take more Italian cold cuts.......very happy to see people enjoy italian food....." (Mortadella) is the name of yesterday  cold cuts.  Mina (Italy)

"My favorite moment is: a small boy bought bangles for his mum... that's the most memorable thing."  Rani (India)

"My favorite moment is seeing mums of different nations preparing foods for the buffet."  Duyen (Vietnam)

"My favourite moment was to see all parents and kids in their national attire...and their enthusiasm is unbeatable."  Amrita (India)

"I was glad to be able to talk much closer with every student in each year in this international week."  Noriko (Japan)

"When kids, mums and teachers said that they love Korean food very much! Especially Kimchi and when many of people felt in love with the beautiful Korean costume."  Suji (Korea).

"It was tiring but it was also very enjoyable - hanging out with kids and participating together with them and the mums."  Thom (Vietnam)

"My favourite moment was working along with Eva, Florence, Mina, Adeline and Jaime as a single country group."  Anne (France)

On behalf of the Parent Group I would like to thank each and every parent who contributed to this week's International Celebration, making it a fantastically rewarding and memorable experience.
