A massive thank you to all our students, staff, families and community who supported this wonderful event. All the proceeds from our 25th anniversary celebration will be made to the National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion Viện Huyết học – truyền máu Trung ương

A message from our Director, Ms Nguyen Kim Trieu

Dear parents, friends, colleagues, old students, past parents, present and previous staff, I am so happy that you can join me to celebrate Morning Star’s 25th anniversary and winter concert. It is a very nice surprise to see faces I have not seen for a long time.

It is now 25 years since I set out to find a school for my son. I wanted a school with good facilites and a small pupil/teacher ratio speaking both English and Vietnamese. Finally, with the help of Dr. Mai Chi, the Director of the Early Childhood Institute Morning Star was born. Thank you Mai Chi , I am so glad you could join us tonight. When we started off as a kindergarten in 1994, we had 9 students of varying ages from 6 countries. 25 years later we offer Kindergarten in 2 locations in Hanoi and an elementary school In Tay Ho with students from 25 nations.
