Year 3 Community Project

11 November 2016

At Tu Xuong, Year 3 children work with Thien Phuoc home for disabled children throughout the year. Thien Phuoc provides housing, care and education for children with a range of disabilities and needs. The community project aims to provide our children here at BIS HCMC with an awareness of disability, experience of working with people with disabilities and to develop their empathy and understanding. Another key aspect is the devotion of time and energy to our community partners.

On Wednesday, eleven children from Year 3 went to visit Thien Phuoc. Although these children had played with some visitors from Thien Phuoc previously, there were a few anxious faces when we arrived. Naturally, when visiting somewhere new it can feel daunting and working with disabled children is a new experience for the majority of our students here at BIS. Some children feel worried or unsure of what to do and act - which is totally normal!  It didn’t take long, however, for the children to relax and start to engage with their new friends.

Modelling and exploring with play dough, building Lego structures, and having wheelchair races were the chosen activities of the day. It was heart-warming to see the children at Thien Phuoc with smiles on their faces because of the attention, time and effort that our Year 3s gave them. As well as playing, some children were invited to go upstairs to visit the children who are immobile and gave them arm and leg massages. It was a pleasure to see the pupils from TX showing their caring sides and trying their best to engage with and entertain the children from Thien Phuoc.

Community projects such as this are integral to developing well rounded global citizens who care about the community. This successful visit shows the importance of the community service we do at BIS and that it has real benefit and purpose. The Year 3 children at TX are looking forward to our next play date already!
