No Backpack Day
Goals & Objectives
Due to their poor living situations, many children across the world and in Vietnam cannot own school backpacks like other children. Despite the challenges, they persevere and constantly go to school with customized backpacks made from common items. SISS students will have the chance to express their creativity on “No Backpack Day” and encourage the spirit of perseverance among children who never give up on their quest for knowledge.
Students are encouraged to use items available at home or items they create to carry books and school supplies to school instead of using their usual school bags.
Students are encouraged to wear clothing of the same color as the “bag” they bring to school. Note: The clothing needs to be polite and suitable for the school environment.
