This week was supposed to be the first of two parent workshops to help parents understand what the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) means to their children’s educational experience at Tesla. Unfortunately, due to Covid safety concerns, they had to be canceled, but because of the number of parents that expressed interest, we are going to create a digital presentation over the next couple of weeks to share as much information as we can about the classroom experience.
A workshop, as opposed to a presentation, provides parents with the opportunity to participate in the same experiences as their children. In the case of our two proposed workshops, parents would have engaged in collaborative inquiry and worked together to understand the concept of agency; the shifting of responsibility for learning to the students by giving them choice in how they learn. Although we cannot emulate those activities in online presentations, we have decided to provide an overview of how teachers integrate the MOET learning outcomes into units of inquiry. In addition to the planning process, we will provide examples of student activities and authentic evidence of student participation in our program of inquiry.
Although we cannot bring you into school to experience the Tesla integrated program, over the next few weeks we will do our best to provide you with as much information as possible about why PYP is internationally recognized as the preeminent primary educational framework and how it meets the needs of your families.

Due to the current Covid 19 situation and the Government restrictions of groups gathering, we cannot hold the workshops in person and need to change the format. Over the next couple weeks, our Director of Studies will be working with the teaching staff to create a presentation about the PYP learning experience. The presentation will include how teachers plan units and what inquiry and agency looks like to students in the classroom. In addition to the information, the presentation will include authentic work from the students as examples of the Tesla PYP teaching and learning approach.
Implementation of Official Letter No. 1415 / UBND-VX on suspending teaching activities in Ho Chi Minh City. To help children to interact with teachers, friends and review knowledge, Tesla will activate the online learning system, please follow the instructions below to help children participate in the classroom. Online learning class is available from Monday, May 17, 2021.
Family members need to respect the learning space between the school and the student. Parents and other family members are encouraged to stay quiet and avoid noise (limit phone usage, listening to music, talking, watching TV during children’s online lessons).
Just like how individual students see the world differently, they have different learning styles and pace. PYP teachers in Tesla understand the discipline of learning and create opportunities for students to organize their learning in the most interesting ways, whether to acquire knowledge, understand a concept, practice a skill or develop their learner profile.
Learning has never been so exciting with hands-on activities and moving around rather than confined to writing at the table and reading out from textbooks.
Students draw diagrams and charts to understand ideas and concepts. They create a variety of mind maps to organize and brainstorm ideas for their learning. Students use colours, images, and symbols to represent the concepts or ideas they want to express. They create games and plays to learn in incredibly creative ways. And that is how learning happens!
The Ministry of Health has officially announced a message featuring 5K (in Vietnamese) Khau trang (facemask) – (Khu khuan) disinfection – (Khoang cach) distance – (Khong tu tap) no gathering – (Khai bao y te) health declaration to help citizens get used to living safely with the COVID-19 pandemic in ‘new normal’ state.
People are recommended to regularly wash hands with soap or hand sanitizers; clean surfaces and frequently contacting objects (doorknobs, mobile phones, tablets, tables, and chairs).
People are also asked to keep a safe distance from each other and avoid mass gatherings.
They are called on to conduct health declaration on the NCOVI app, install BlueZone which will help detect the risk of COVID-19 infection.
As a parent, our biggest aspiration is to help our children enjoy good education and be successful. How can we prepare our child for a solid education foundation, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic during the past 2 years?
At Tesla Education Group, we understand the concerns and difficulties of parents, especially when COVID-19 has led to global financial instability directly affecting every family. Economic experts predict we will need at least 3 years after the pandemic is over to get back to a normal recovering and developing economy.
Therefore, 2021 is an important time for parents to choose an education solution that not only is stable and suitable for children in the next 3 to 5 years but also fits the family budget. This also presents an opportunity for parents to leverage their children’s outstanding development compared to their peers.
A good financial plan now can realize parent’s dream of educating their children even in the global crisis. With that in mind, in 2021-2022, Tesla Education Group – International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme, has introduced the “CRISIS BEHIND, FUTURE AHEAD” – The education savings package for primary and secondary parents. Students will be able to learn in a modern and creative educational environment, which will get them ready for universities in any advanced educational system in the world.
