The Laos-Vietnam Friendship Secondary School in Vientiane held a contest on Vietnam ’s founding President Ho Chi Minh on May 11 in celebration of his 121 st birth anniversary.

Four teams representing 700 students at the school took part in the contest, answering questions about the late President’s biography, especially his revolutionary life, in accurate and fast Vietnamese. In a competition on Ho Chi Minh songs, the Lao students sang in a very good Vietnamese accent, winning loud applause from audiences.

The Laos-Vietnam Secondary School was a gift from the former Communist Party of Vietnam General Secretary, Nong Duc Manh. The fully-equipped 21-classroom school was put into operation in 2010, accommodating some 800 students./.
