UNESCO Director General attends new school year ceremony in Hanoi

Hanoi, September 6 (VNA) - Director General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) Audrey Azoulay attended the new school year opening ceremony at the Hanoi-based Ngo Si Lien Secondary School on September 5. Ngo Si Lien is among the schools selected for the "education for sustainable development" project included in the UNESCO Associated Schools Network. In her remarks, Azoulay said all of the 23 Vietnamese educational institutions joining the network have committed to following UNESCO’s educational development path. Lauding Ngo Si Lien for its climate change response, she called for joint efforts from teachers, students and their families in this regard. The over-100-year-old school has 53 classes with over 120 officials and teachers, and some 2,000 students. Nearly 23 million students across the country started the new school year on September 5. The new academic year opening ceremony was held in-person across the country after two years of disruption due to COVID-19./.
