On April 5th, millions of students all over the country came back to school after a 3-month stay-at-home period to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Witnessing the complicated developments of the pandemic, the school board of Hanoi - Amsterdam High School for the Gifted has devised appropriate solutions to ensure the safety of more than 2000 students currently studying at the school.

Spreading awareness and educating students about Covid-19

The school has started hanging banners and posters at the stairs of the buildings to inform students of the facts of the disease. All the banners show the basic steps to prevent the spread of Covid-19, helping students self-protect by equipping themselves with knowledge.

Splitting classes in half and restricting the distance between students and teachers up to a minimum of 1 meter

Every secondary school and specialized high school class will be divided into two shifts: a morning one and an afternoon one, sharing the same curriculum; in class, each student will sit at a separate desk so the 1-meter distance is enforced.

A-level classes will not be subjected to this treatment; however, students will go to school only in the morning, after which they will head home and prepare for online lessons in the afternoon.

Supplying hygiene products and thermometers for first-period teachers to identify students with symptoms in time

When  they come to school, students’ body temperature will be checked; if there are symptoms of coughing and/or fever, they will not be allowed in the school to prevent the spread of the diseases in class. Additionally, students are required to wash their hands with hand sanitizers provided in class to disinfect before school starts.


Checking body temperature before class

Requiring all school staff and students to wear face masks 100% of the time spent at school

In addition to distancing and checking body temperature, it is essential that teachers and students at Hanoi - Amsterdam High School for the Gifted wear face masks in all of their time spent at school to stop the spread of Covid-19.


Students wearing face masks

The 3-month stay-at-home period due to Covid-19 has caused significant obstacles in students’ acquisition of knowledge; however, teachers have devised methods of complementary education through online sessions in the social distancing period, along with requiring students to attend televised lessons on the program “Hoc tren truyen hinh” (“Studying by television”) made by the Hanoi Department of Education and Training in cooperation with Hanoi Radio and Television Broadcasting. Here’s to hope that the pandemic will not thwart the education at Hanoi - Amsterdam High School for the Gifted, so that Hanoi - Amsterdam will remain the pioneer of Vietnamese education.
