On Tuesday, December 20, 2016 15 students and 4 teachers from Saint Ignatius' College, Adelaide, South Australia visited the CNCF Centre in Ho Chi Minh City. The students enjoyed participating in a range of activities at the Centre.
Recently, the Sunshine School 5th Grade class finished their swimming course with the Paul Sadler Swimland Organization. It was such a great experience for the children.
Thanks to the continued support of United World College of South East Asia, students who graduated from primary education from our Sunshine School have been given comprehensive school kits to prepare them for their secondary education.
This year, all 19 Grade 5 students passed the national primary educational exam. We have one girl who got a perfect 20/20 in her exam.
Thanks to the enormous and continued generosity of our donors, this year we were able to organise a summer camp for both the Sunshine School and the Boys & Girls Sunshine Homes to give our children a two day holiday away from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City.
The project manager chose carefully for this camp because of its enormous playground areas which were enclosed by natural parks but still well-equipped enough and monitored by the centres staff for children’s safety.
Today is the start of International Water Safety month, and at CNCF we've been busy teaching our kids the basics of being safe around water.
For the past 5 months, our 5th Grade Sunshine School class has been hosted by Ky Dong Swimming Centre, where meeting once a week, 22 students have been taught how to swim.
In a country where 32 children die every day due to drowning, which include 68% of cases caused by unsupervised swimming, guiding our children to understand water safety has been a priority for the Foundation.
5th September 2015 was a very special day as it was the first day of the school year 2015-2016 for all public schools in Vietnam. Just like any other school, the 146 students at our Sunshine School, were all excited to start the new school year and attend the opening ceremony.
The opening celebration started with a procession of the twenty nine Grade 1 students walking into the school yard with balloons flying and a big welcoming applause from the whole school.
