This trip was also the first time PA team co-operated with Bac Ha Education & Training Department to hold Teacher Conference with the theme “Be The Change” for 105 principals and lead teachers of 50 primary schools and middle schools of Bac Ha district with 4 topics:
Forming and Sustaining Clubs
Health & Hygiene
Interactive Teaching Method
The conference made a great impact in general as well as on an individual. The interpreters of the conference were 3 teachers of Bac Ha’s schools. They took the responsibility for the chance to use English which was their professional teaching subject and to learn the steps to prepare for the lesson in professional ways.
Mr. Ha Van Sang – The Deputy Chief of Bac Ha Education & Training Department comment:”There is no need to say anything, you all can see the success of the conference. Let me give you an example: At other conferences, many teachers had reasons to leave the conference when it was still in process. But with GVI’s conference, they stayed until it finished.”
The 150 teachers who participated the conference will bring the new methods back to their school to share with 1,150 other teachers and together they apply to teach 10,000 students.
With the great start, PA team committed to hold Teacher Conference together with Bac Ha Education & Training Department yearly.
