Ancient martial arts school under renovation

QĐND – Tuesday, January 11, 2011, 21:34 (GMT+7)

A 1-billion VND (50,000 USD) renovation project on the Xien Vo Temple in the ancient capital of Hue has been launched by the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre.

The project, which deals with the temple’s main compartment and two wings, is expected to be completed by October.

The building, also called Vo Ban Temple, was used as a martial arts teaching facility for children of high-ranking mandarins under King Minh Mang (1820-40).

Recognised as a provincial historical and architectural vestige in 2006, the temple presents features of a ruong house – a typical wooden house that once dominated the city.

Northern provinces to receive Japan aid for primary school project

In Uncategorized on January 8, 2011 at 4:09 am

The Government of Japan has agreed to a grant of US$191, 900 for the construction of primary schools in the northern provinces of Nam Dinh and Quang Ninh.

Japanese Ambassador to Vietnam Yasuaki Tanizaki, handed US$ 95,183 and US$ 96,717 to Mr. Nguyen Van Dong, Chairman of People’s Committee of Yen Tho Commune in Nam Dinh province and Mr. Nguyen Van Thanh, Chairman of People’s Committee of Xuan Son Commune in Quang Ninh respectively on December 28, 2010 at the Embassy of Japan in Vietnam.

The Yen Tho Primary School in Nam Dinh Province was built in 1975 but was damaged by floods and is in need of repair. Furthermore, classrooms are too small to accommodate enough students, as a result the school has to borrow space in a nearby secondary school and often students study in two shifts.

Xuan Son Primary School in Quang Ninh province was built in 1964 and is now in a dilapidated condition. It has only three classrooms hence can only facilitate children from grade 1-2. The school has to continually borrow space from the nearby secondary school for their 3-5 grade children and pupils have to learn in two shifts.

The People’s Committee, in an effort to improve the condition of both the schools plans to build a new 2 storey 8 classroom building. The Government of Japan grant that supports this project will help towards the purchase of building materials.
At a ceremony, Ambassador Tanizaki hoped that through this project, funded by the Government of Japan, learning conditions in Xuan Son Commune would improve considerably and that through this project friendship and mutual understanding between Japan and Vietnam would further deepen.

Creating advantages for HIV/AIDS children to have normal school lives

In Uncategorized on December 24, 2010 at 4:28 am

A seminar on guaranteeing the right for children, affected by the HIV/AIDS virus, to be able to study, was held in Ho Chi Minh City on December 22.

The seminar was hosted by the Ho Chi Minh City HIV/AIDS Prevention Committee and the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).

According to the Legal Aid and Consultancy Center, knowledge of HIV prevention methods and the law on HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control have not been widely known. Which means that children living with AIDS virus believed they are stigmatized and discriminated against, especially at kindergartens and primary schools.

The government should launch and support school policies that assist HIV-affected children, most of whom come from poor families.

Statistics show that Vietnam has more than 5,000 school-aged HIV-positive carriers (0-15 years old) and thousands of HIV-affected children.

In related news, the Thi Nghe Center for Orphans and Disabled Children now has more than 2,300 students, since its establishment in 1975. Most of them have physical, intellectually and communication problems to deal with.

Ministry, military-run telecom extend school internet project

Ministry, military-run telecom extend school internet project

QĐND – Monday, December 20, 2010, 21:26 (GMT+7)

All education and training institutions with electricity in Vietnam have free access to the internet, said head of the Ministry of Education and Training’s Information and Technology Department Quach Tuan Ngoc.

Ngoc made the statement on Dec. 18 at a conference in Hanoi where the ministry and the military-run telecom group Viettel reviewed their joint two-year internet connection for education programme.

“The result means that Vietnam is one of a few countries in the world where all schools have access to internet,” Ngoc said.

He added that the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (SEAMEO) had last month praised Vietnam ‘s IT developments in the education and training sector.

The country has come a long way since a report released in 2008 placed Vietnam alongside Laos , Cambodia and Myanmar in the group with the least developed IT sectors.

The joint programme launched by Ministry of Education and Training and Viettel in September 2008 has provided internet to nearly 29,600 education institutions nationwide. Of these, over 21,000 are now connected to broadband internet through leased line technology, ADSL and third generation technology.

Under the programme, Viettel has provided preferential internet and mobile services policies to teachers and students.

Ngoc said internet access had helped narrow the gap between urban and rural areas.

Director of Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) province of Dak Lak Phan Hong said the connection helped teachers improve their teaching method and required students to be more active learners.

Viettel deputy director Nguyen Manh Hung said the programme focused on kindergartens, primary, secondary and high schools and universities and management units.

The Minister of Education and Training Pham Vu Luan said the sector should be more active and creative to further develop the programme.

“We hope that enterprises, organisations and individuals will continue to develop information and technology application in the sector,” Luan said.

During the two-day conference, the ministry and Viettel signed an agreement in which they promised to continue implementing the programme.

The two sides will invest in equipment, e-books and e-learning.

It is estimated that over 25 million teachers and students have already accessed the internet.
