“The Party, State, schools, families and society have always been caring for and creating the best conditions for children to grow up in a safe and healthy environment, as well as have all their rights ensured,” the leader wrote.
He expressed his wish that the children continue to follow the teachings of President Hồ Chí Minh, respect grandparents, parents and teachers, help those in disadvantaged circumstances and study well to contribute to building the country when they grow up.
The leader also wished all children a joyful, safe and meaningful Mid-Autumn festival.
