Forming and Sustaining Clubs
Health & Hygiene

Life Skills
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.

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.
