Inauguration and Handover Ceremony of the boarding house, cafeteria and kitchen at Quang Trong Primary and Secondary School, Cao Bang province

On the morning of 5 Sep 2022, in the joyful atmosphere of the first day of the school year 2022-2023, ChildFund Vietnam and the ChildFund Project Management Unit in Thach An district held the Inauguration and Handover Ceremony of the boarding house, cafeteria and kitchen at Quang Trong Primary and Secondary School. Participating in the event were representatives from the Department of Ethnic Education – Ministry of Education and Training, Thach An District People’s Committee, Department of Education and Training and more than 300 students, teachers, parents, and other institutions, agencies, and organisations of Quang Trong commune.

This construction of boarding house, cafeteria and kitchen has enabled more than 60 boarding students, who previously lived in temporary and dangerous shacks next to streams, to live and study in a safer environment that ensures the minimum living facilities.

This activity is funded by the New Zealand Embassy and ChildFund New Zealand through the project “Safe and Supportive Semi-boarding Schools for students" implemented by ChildFund Vietnam and local partners in Thach An district, Cao Bang province with an aim to ensure “ethnic minority semi-boarding schools are well managed and semi-boarding students can live in a safe, friendly environment and develop self-protection skills”.

Let’s see some photos of this project and share the joy with students as they welcome the new school year and their new living space!
