The school that I attended more than 20 years ago has now "changed new clothes".
Hi everybody. How are you guys? Today, many memories of the time when I was a student suddenly came back to my mind when I walked into the elementary school that I attended when I was a child. Moments of joy and sadness intermingled in me every time I passed each place in the school. Surely each of us will also encounter that mood when returning to our old school.
This is the school I attended when I was 7 years old. Actually, there have been some changes in this school. But this doesn't make me lose my memories with the school.
In my place of residence, the Covid epidemic is still breaking out so the school administration has arranged classes to be alternated during the week to prevent the disease from spreading even though the local government has announced that we will live with the Covid-19 pandemic.
The school administration purposely placed these notice boards near the school gate so that teachers and students strictly follow the rules related to the Covid-19 epidemic.
The first image that reminds me of is the flagpole fluttering in the wind. As a habit, every Monday morning, I am aware of waking up very early, cleaning and tidying up my clothes to go to school before the flag-raising ceremony takes place. But I am not always on time to attend the flag-raising ceremony at the beginning of the week. Knowing that I would be late anyway, I invited a few friends who were also late like me to hide in a nearby pub and chat and laugh until the ceremony was over.
Because my house is close to the school, I didn't use that parking lot.
The biggest change I've come across here is the campus. Instead of plants and flowers like this, before it was all soil and sand, even without a plastic-coated surface like this.
When I studied here, the boarding area was not established yet, we only studied for half a day, either morning or afternoon. Now students study all day and even eat lunch and sleep at school.
These are "5 things Uncle Ho teaches children". This board is always hung next to the writing board above the podium for students to remember and follow the advice of the President of Vietnam - a shining example in the hearts of every Vietnamese.
The information technology industry is becoming more and more modern, so the administrators have not hesitated to include them in order to maximize the effectiveness of teaching and students' learning. Not only that, creating a living space in the classroom as well as outside also contributes to making students feel excited and excited when going to school. I remember back in the day when I read textbooks that were completely black and white. Now, everywhere is full of brilliant and vivid pictures.
The memory that I miss the most is borrowing a book from the school library. Library rules are not to borrow more than 2 copies at a time. Since I was in the middle of reading a very interesting volume, I was planning to go to the library to borrow the next volume, but I was told by the librarian that I couldn't borrow it again until tomorrow. The story was so good that I couldn't wait until tomorrow so I cried profusely to get her approval. After a moment of hesitation, she still wouldn't let me borrow the book, but instead, she advised me to borrow another friend's membership card to continue my borrowing. Anyways, it's the library's rules and we all have to follow them.
I have a lot of memories of sitting in class. Maybe I'll talk about it in the next post because the school drums are already ringing. It is also the time when students leave school. This feeling almost everyone looks forward to every time they sit in class.
