Edubridge hosted a mini education fair in Vietnam on March 19, 2023 where representatives held a booth for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board! During the fair, Edubridge had an opportunity to meet with many students who showed interest in the Board and our Secondary schools and advise them on the program options available!
Students in Mrs. Cimino’s class enjoyed learning about Lunar New Year which was celebrated on January 22nd. They made Chinese lanterns to join in the festivities and to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit!
International students & their host families enjoyed an evening of food and fun! Each family received a DIY pizza kit. Together, students and their families kneaded the fresh dough and personalized their pizza with their favourite toppings. After supper, international students from all of our secondary schools joined in via Zoom to learn about the history of pizza and to play a Kahoot trivia game about Sudbury! We were ecstatic to discover that our students, although they haven’t been in Sudbury very long, were quite knowledgeable about our city! We look forward to planning more fun nights with our students and families!

Tet Nguyen Dan or Tet is the most important and popular holiday and festival in Vietnam. It is the Vietnamese New Year marking the arrival of spring based on the Lunar calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The name Tet Nguyen Dan is Sino-Vietnamese for Feast of the very First Morning.
Tet takes place from the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar (around late January or early February) until at least the third day. Many Vietnamese prepare for Tet by cooking special holiday foods and cleaning their house. There are a lot of customs practiced during Tet such as visiting a person’s house on the first day of the new year (xông nhà), ancestral worship, wishing New Year’s greetings, giving lucky money to children and elderly people and opening a shop.
