Teachers – “Raising the Wings of Dreams”
Respecting and being grateful to the religion is a good humanistic tradition of our nation from ancient times up to the present. That tradition clearly expresses the great gratitude to the teachers every year on November 20.
The students of Binh An and Binh Trieu centers eagerly look forward to the 20th November. They have the opportunity to express their feelings and gratitude to their teachers who are always helping, guiding, teaching, gathering and loving the students under their wings.
Gifts for teachers from the two centers are not expensive gifts, instead, contests of handwriting, drawing pictures and making simple cards for the teachers. These gifts are truly the most meaningful and spiritual gift that FFSC’s teachers have received from their students.
Binh An center:
The solemn ceremony of gratitude at Binh An center was held internally to welcome Vietnamese Teachers’ Day on the morning of 17th November.
On behalf of the students at Binh An center, one representative of the 5th graders expressed their gratitude to the teachers and the nuns.
The students began to extensively practice the arts from the early days of November to performance to their beloved teachers and sisters. Although the ceremony was brief and modest, it contained many holy affections between the teachers and the students.
In particular, a small group of seminarians of St. Joseph’s Major Seminary in Sai Gon came and organized some activities with the students in the afternoon.
Taking this opportunity, the students would like to express their gratitude to the sisters of the Dominican of Phu Cuong Diocese, and.the seminarians of St. Joseph’s Major Seminary in Sai Gon diocese.
