PTG visit to Anh Minh School for the Hearing Impaired

02 November 2016

Primary PTG Volunteers visited Anh Minh school yesterday and found it to be a delightful little school. Sister Mary took Ying and four Tu Xuong campus parents on a visit of their school. The TX parents used the opportunity to take their donated books to the school library.

Here is a summary of Ying's observations and what she learnt from the school visit.

  • The grounds are very well kept and clean. I was astounded how clean they kept the classrooms and common areas. 
  • There are almost 200 kids aged from 3-20years. They are studying from kindergarten to Year 9 level. I believe there are also around 50 children that come for the early intervention program - they come with a parent.
  • There are some Year levels that take two years. For example, Year 1 and Year 5. Sister Mary explained that for the hearing impaired these two year levels take longer.
  • All the children seemed very happy and also so very polite. They greeted Sister Mary and I at every point.
  • I saw the construction on the top floor of their school. They are building 1 lab/science room, 1 school hall (gymnasium) and two more classrooms to cater for their growing enrolment.
  • I understand the science lab would be for the benefit of the older children, especially the Year 9s. 

I met a little girl who had her first day at the school. She was without a uniform and was having a hard time (crying) as she is away from home. Sister Mary explained that she comes from far away, a province near Phu Quoc and is currently staying with a school teacher in order to receive education at Anh Minh. It made me understand some of the (tough) situations that the children who come to this school have.

The year 2 class that visited the school on their exchange that day, met a class of only 9 kids. The class teacher explained that there used to be 10 kids but one had to drop out as he couldn’t afford to pay the school fees.

The PTG have earmarked 15.2 million VND from last year’s Spring Fair to go towards supporting Anh Minh with tables/chairs and equipment for their new science lab. 

Thank you for all of your support.
