Zippy's Friends started in Go Vap district, Ho Chi Minh city
Sept. 22, 2018
On 24th November 2014 SCDI’s life skills team in Ho Chi Minh city has started another Zippy's Friends class in the Community Education Center at ward 13, Go Vap district, Ho Chi Minh city. It’s exciting as the class was also the first session to be conducted in the new Center.
There were 21 children from 6 to 11 years old and their parents attending the opening class, which was full of joy and openness. The children, sitting a circle, attentively listened to teacher’s introduction about life skills and actively participated in fun activities. The children was especially impressed with the color “crowns” that the teachers gave out as welcoming presents.
Most of the children still felt very strange hearing about “life skills” yet after listening to the teachers about the purpose of the class, when asked about whether they would like to participate in the class, all, with a big smile, answered “Yes”. This made the teachers as well as volunteers very happy and excited for the next classes.
- Class I (6 – 8 years old): 9h - 10h30 Saturday morning every week
- Class II (9 – 11 years old): 10h – 11h30 Sunday morning every week
