End of school year bonus

After a hard working school year all staff get a bonus from the university. We often get it in October. Not much but enough for a new dress and a buffet dinner with son :-)

Happy Vietnamese Women's Day 2013

Vietnamese Women's Day is one of the special days in a year. The majority of the teachers in our department are women. As a rule, union representatives and vices are busy preparing a small meeting to celebrate this special day. This year we had to make use of the time between the morning and afternoon teaching sessions so that most of the teachers present at school today could attend. After the opening speech of the first vice, we had a live show :-) - some teachers sang songs and enjoyed some fruit and cakes and sweets.  As a vice and a union rep, I felt relived after the ceremony ended. More teachers attended then we expected.

Wish all women lots of happy days in a year not only one or two days as women's day.
