HCM CITY — A special TV programme will air live to highlight national Teachers’ Day celebrations around the country on November 20.
The four-hour show, Ngày Thầy Trò (Day of Teachers and Students), will begin at 7:00pm on 20 channels by leading stations such as Vĩnh Long Television, Voice of Việt Nam, MobiTV and VTC.
It will include reports on teachers living in remote districts of Cà Mau, Hà Tĩnh and Hà Giang provinces, who face challenges to educate their students.
Featured will be talks by Vietnamese-French professor and mathematician Ngô Bảo Châu of the University of Chicago, winner of the Fields Medal in 2012; shooter Hoàng Xuân Vinh, the country’s first Olympic golden medallist at Rio de Janeiro this year; and historian Dương Trung Quốc.
Pop stars Mỹ Linh and Thu Phương, and young singers Đinh Mạnh Ninh, Nhật Thủy and Nguyễn Trần Trung Quân will share their stories on the day.
The show will include short documentaries on the life of poor students from ethnic minority groups, who have worked hard to support their parents but still love going to school.
Ngày Thầy Trò was produced by director Trần Đăng Tuấn and his staff, who travelled to many places for filming.
“Our programme is like a diary of students and teachers in remote areas who will help depicting the country’s education development,” he said.
“It will provide viewers with useful knowledge and images about teachers and their students. It will also encourage people to pay more attention to encourage disadvantaged children to develop their study,” said Tuấn, the show’s general director. — VNS
