On Saturday morning, about 12 Blue Dragon staff and kids headed to Bac Ninh province, where we support over 350 students to attend school. The occasion: The 4th annual Opening Ceremony!
Our OC doesn't have fireworks or inflatable kangaroos, but it is a positive and encouraging event intended to kick the school year off on a high note.
It's also a bit more than a ceremony; the students receive their school bags, stationery, and text books in preparation for returning to school.
As always, a picture tells a thousand words...
Tom Cruise gave the opening speech
In Viet Nam, you can't have a ceremony without singing
A quick break for fruit and drinks
The kids lined up to recieve their text books...
... and then chose their school bag. This year, green is in.
And then it's time to go home and study!
A BIG THANKS to all the Stay In School sponsors!
