On the morning of June 26, the OPOS (One Place One Story) English Summer Camp was officially opened at Le Hong Phong Secondary School in Soc Trang Province. The camp was co-organized by the Lawrence S. Ting Foundation, Saigon South International School (SSIS), and Lawrence S. Ting School.
The OPOS English Summer Camp aims to improve the English language skills of students in grades 6 and 7 who are facing difficult circumstances. This is achieved through learning, playing, and direct contact between campers and volunteers in camp activities. A total of 90 students from 4 secondary schools in Soc Trang were selected to participate in the OPOS English Summer Camp in 2023.
With the support of 40 volunteers, including high school students from SSIS and Lawrence S. Ting School, as well as some international volunteers from the US and Taiwan, the campers will spend 10 days, from June 26 to July 7, 2023, improving their English and learning about the local culture of Soc Trang. Topics such as festivals, food, and tourism will be covered, and the campers will make their presentations in English on the closing date.
The Lawrence S. Ting Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2005 with the aim of supporting the community in the fields of education, health, and society. Over the years, the Lawrence S. Ting Foundation and Phu My Hung Corporation have carried out many practical and large-scale social programs across the country, such as the Lawrence S.
