Students attending education facilities in Hanoi will be entitled to a consecutive nine-day break, from February 8 to 16, on the occasion of the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday.
The plan was stated in an official document published by the Hanoi People’s Committee and the Hanoi Department of Education and Training on December 30.
More specifically, kindergartens, elementary schools, middle and high schools, vocational schools, and regular education centers are directed to implement a nine-day Lunar New Year break from February 8 to 16.
Officials of the Hanoi Department of Education and Training, as well as ward-, provincial- and township-level educational bureaus are entitled to seven consecutive days of leave from February 10 to February 16.
The Hanoi Department of Education and Training also asked agencies and schools to strictly comply with Directive 44/CT-TTg from December 21, which emphasized safety, proper and economical Lunar New Year celebration, the strengthening of public order and traffic safety monitoring, as well as the augmentation of COVID-19 prevention measures during the holiday.
Mentioned agencies must schedule personnel to undertake patrol duty at the premise and cooperate with local law enforcement to ensure asset safety and fire prevention.
The department also guided agencies to take care of the material and mental health needs of staffers and students, arranging visits to cases of special needs to ensure an ample Tet celebration for all.
Agencies are also advised to educate students, promoting a civilized lifestyle which upholds social order, traffic safety and condemns street racing, gambling, the transport and possession of explosives or other dangerous activities.
