For the third consecutive year, a leading educational institution from Vietnam has been selected for the Microsoft Innovative Pathfinder Schools programme, with Olympia Schools being selected to join the 2013 cohort of Pathfinder schools.
The Microsoft Innovative Pathfinder Schools Programme helps to transform education by enabling selected schools to benefit from deeper engagement, more in-depth access to resources and mentoring opportunities from education experts. Olympia Schools was selected on the basis of its innovative approaches to foster the talent, creativity and intellectual development of Vietnamese youth. Olympia also aims to provide practical education and skills training that will prepare its students for life outside the classroom.
“It is a great honour to be selected as a Pathfinder school in Microsoft’s Innovative Schools programme. We are looking forward to joining Microsoft’s cohort of Pathfinder Schools to continue helping our students ignite their natural desire to learn and prepare themselves for success in today’s evolving global economy,” said Nguyen Minh An, Vice Chairman of Olympia Schools.
“We are impressed by Olympia’s commitment and broad vision of catering to the unique needs of each of their students. We are confident that Olympia would use the Pathfinder programme as the platform to embrace more innovative approaches in education, as well as to influence other schools in Vietnam to transform education in a scalable, replicable manner,” said Pham Thi Thanh Huong, Education Lead, Microsoft Vietnam.
“Microsoft‘s Pathfinder programme will enable us to continue helping our students ignite their natural desire to learn and prepare themselves for success in today’s evolving global economy.”
