A massive collage of 1,000 paintings by children from Hanoi will be on a display themed “thousands of pictures, thousands of wishes” to be held on September 22.

The 1,000m long collection depicts Hanoi’s traditional customs, the country’s splendour as well as the people’s feelings for the Party, President Ho Chi Minh and their teachers.

On addressing the ceremony to announce the pictures’ debut on September 9, the Deputy Head of Hanoi’s Department of Education and Training Nguyen Thi Ngoc Bich, said that the work is a gift to celebrate the capital city’s 1,000 th millennium anniversary.

“The programme offers an opportunity for primary pupils to explore history and Thang Long-Hanoi’s culture while encouraging young talented children to paint,” she said.

The collage will have paintings of other primary school pupils from many others areas added to it in the future, she said.

The programme marks the start of a campaign to raise funds for the “Vietnamese Children’s Dream fund” to support children in difficult circumstances./.
