After 11 months of preparation and construction, the new school is a surprise to many parents when they go visit their children’s new classrooms. The temporary classrooms built from old corrugated iron sheets and raw timber wood have now been rebuilt with the design and structure complying with the standards set for school buildings by the Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam. The school also has a school gate, a hedge and a big playground for the children to play in their break time.
