Poussieres de Vie (PdV) is an organisation that works with children from the streets in Ho Chi Minh City. They provide them with food, shelter, clothing and schooling. For a number of years, PdV has been our Year 6 community partner and the children on rotation welcome them to the Tu Xuong campus and then take their turn in visiting their school.
On Wednesday afternoon a group of children from PdV came to visit TX. Children from 6X demonstrated their leadership skills by deciding which activities to do with the PdV children and by organising and leading the groups. Both sets of children socialised well, asking questions to find out more about their partners whilst taking part in modelling activities and games. It was lovely to see the way the children mixed at the start of what will hopefully be a very positive set of sessions.
Here is an account from Tina in YR6 about her visit to PdV:
On Wednesday the 5th October, a few children from our class, Ms. Phuong and Ms. Mary visited PDV to play and interact with some of the children there. Some were ten or eleven years old and others were only eight, one even lost their parents. The school was smaller than our school and there was only one class (and it had children from different grades learning with each other). We got there a little late so we only got to introduce ourselves and watch a little clip about ‘The Legend of the Mosquito’.
