Each year the society holds a ceremony to honor students with the highest academic achievements.
Cam Thi Uyen, an official of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development who recently received a master's degree in agriculture, said, “I feel happy and honored to have received a master’s degree. Young clan members like me are determined to study hard in order to contribute to our family and society.”
The Quang clan has 47 people with a college or university degree working for the Son La administration. One of them has studied abroad and another has been awarded the title “Meritorious Artisan”.
|The classes to teach the Thai script have attracted a great number of students of all ages in Bo hamlet.
To preserve the handwriting which is a unique cultural feature of the Thai ethnic group, the Quang’s study promotion society has organized classes to teach the Thai script twice a week to students of all ages.
Quang Thi Bien, a member of the society, said, “Since I was small, I have attended school. I learned to read, write, and listen to radio and TV programs, which has taught me many things. When the Thai script class began, I decided to arrange the time to participate. Now I can teach the younger generation what I have learned.”
The clan encourages every household to instill a fondness for learning in their children.
Quang Van Hac, the clan’s head, said, “Vietnam has many clans with production and business models worth studying. Receiving a certificate of satisfactory progress enourages us to make a greater effort. We want to set an example for our children to follow to maintain the gains we have made.”
