The meeting took place successfully in the exciting atmosphere, demonstrating a firm friendship between younger generations from the two countries.

The meeting began with a welcome speech by Teacher Nguyen Dinh Vinh – Vice Principle of Hanoi-Amsterdam High School. He first stressed the bonding diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Singapore which has proven to be sustainable and beneficial for both countries, then emphasized the importance of science and technology in the fields of developing all nations. Vietnam is paying special attention to this field, claiming its resource from Hanoi- Amsterdam students, future owners of the country. Ending his speech, he looked forward to more cooperation between Singapore’s School of Science and Technology and Hanoi-Amsterdam High School. The firm bonding could play a fundamental role in the process of training and improving the quality of education.

After the discussion about both schools, the representative teacher from Singapore offered a souvenir gift to Teacher Nguyen Dinh Vinh to express solidarity between the two schools in particular and the two countries Vietnam and Singapore in general.

Leaving the school hall, students from Singapore are then divided into 4 groups and took turns seeing around campus under the guidance of  “tour guides” from Hanoi-Amsterdam High School. This is also a rare opportunity for students from two schools to have time to talk, share stories and make friends with each other. In addition, the delegates could have a look at the modern facilities as well as find out more about the cultural traditions of Hanoi-Amsterdam High School.
