A meeting to mark the 60th anniversary of Vietnam Students’ Day (January 9) was held in Ben Tre City on January 8 by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee (HCMYUCC), the Vietnam Students’ Association (VSA), and the Ministry of Education and Training. HCMYUCC Secretary and head of the VSA, Nguyen Dac Vinh, affirmed that students and youths are pillars of the nation so they should study and follow late President Ho Chi Minh’s examples to become intellectuals who will lead the cause of national construction and defence for a more prosperous and brighter future of the nation. Speaking at the meeting, Secretary of the Party Central Committee, Ha Thi Khiet emphasised that the Party and State always place trust in dynamic and creative students who will form the core to develop Vietnam into an industrialised country by 2020. She encouraged students and youths to respond enthusiastically to the exemplary role model campaigns and also urged authorities to better care for them. After the meeting, students and youths met with former students who were involved in the two wars of resistance against foreign aggressors in the 20th century. On the occasion, the HCMYUCC presented “Lighting up the Dreams of Vietnamese Youths” scholarships to 10 outstanding students in southern provinces. The Vietnam Steel Corporation provided VND250 million to build a memorial to heroic martyr Tran Van On in Phuoc Thach village, Chau Thanh District, Ben Tre Province. The Ben Tre Telecommunications donated VND200 million to the “Lighting up the Dreams” Fund to help students in Ben Tre province. Tran Van On – an outstanding student – laid down his life on a street in Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City) on January 9, 1950, while leading a students’ movement against the French colonialists. Since then January 9 has been observed as Vietnam Students’ Day.
