The Bình Hòa site of Phương Phú 2 Primary School is located in a remote area of Phụng Hiệp District, Hậu Giang Province. To reach this site, students have two options: they can either traverse the asphalt road just wide enough for a motorbike or travel by small boats.
Being situated in such a unique location, having adequate facilities required a great deal of effort from the school. Therefore, having 16 brand new computers, sponsored by Positive Thinking Company APAC, became a dream come true for both teachers and students at the school on 8th September.
Before the remote Bình Hòa site was equipped with a computer room, students had to travel 5km to the main site to practise computer skills, with 5-6 students sharing a single computer. Additionally, in recent years, online academic competitions issued by the Ministry of Education have gained significant attention from students at different levels. The lack of equipment at Phương Phú school inevitably hindered students’ participation, as most of them relied on borrowing laptops from their teachers.
Now, thanks to the computers provided by Positive Thinking Company, students can learn both theory and practice right at the school. They also have the opportunity to solidify their knowledge, enhance their computer skills, and engage in more useful and exciting experiments.
Bình Hòa is also where, in March, saigonchildren built two additional classrooms to consolidate the three satellite sites into one location, allowing students to enjoy more spacious and modern facilities and receive concentrated support to enhance the quality of their education.
