HCM CITY— The Vietnam USA Society English Centers is organising a programme called “Đồng hành toàn diện, vững bước cùng con” (A Companion For Your Child’s Future) to prepare students for returning to school after more than three months.
The programme has lectures by doctors and psychologists to help parents and children prepare mentally and learn about COVID-19 preventive measures before and at school.
They are livestreamed on VUS’s Facebook page.
The programme will last until the end of this month.
In their first two sessions on May 3 and 4, doctors and experts said parents need to maintain an active and optimistic attitude since it would influence their children.
It also helps strengthen immunity to fight diseases better, they said.
School managers and teachers should create a safe learning environment by dividing their students into small groups and staggering classes, ensuring children keep a distance of one or two metres with others and limiting activities that require gathering in large groups, they said.
They should be prepared to handle students who have a fever, they aid.
Children’s sleep should receive proper attention since patterns could be upset during the social distancing campaign.
Parents can ask the panellists for clarifications. — VNS
