In addition to these activities, 34 students of the two Universities participate in community activities such as collecting waste at Ba Om Pond. They provide the orphanage with computers and build a playground for children. They also help farmers to harvest peanuts at Duyen Hai district.


The Swinburne team leader, environmental chemist Dr. Francois Malherbe, said: "Swinburne students have a chance to interact with the real environment in a remote province that is very different from that of Australia, so it helps them to enrich their knowledge."

TRA VINH – On Friday night 17th December, TVU School of Foreign Languages students opened their 11th annual Christmas tradition with a group dancing on the background music of Doraemon that effectively brought the Christmas cheer to hundreds of merry audiences.

“Green Your Life” is the theme of this year’s Get-Together music concert.

The annual music concert, lasting well over a decade, is entirely student-run from script writing, choreographing to costume designing and stage managing.

The 2014 Get-Together once again mixed the warmth of students and the fun of an intercultural experience, with the combined power of English, French, Khmer and Chinese music.

‘The popular Get-Together at TVU is a great opportunity for the students to practice English, bonds community members through the sounds of music,’ said Mr Tran Van Trong, TVU’s Vice Rector. ‘It is a joy to see how the School of Foreign Languages annual concert gets our community together.”


This year’s theme, ‘Green Your Life’, is inspired by the TVU Rector, Dr Pham Tiet Khanh, who in 2013 signed the Talloires Declaration, an official statement of a commitment to environmental sustainability in higher education made by 300 university presidents in over 40 countries.


For the TVU community, attending the Get-Together concert is a tradition, but there is something new this year. Students infused this year’s theme into each entertainment scene through music, plays, fanciful costumes procession, and group dances to inspire sustainable behaviours campus-wide.


‘Besides languages, we show our talents in the language of dance and music,’ said Nguyen Thi My Tu, Year 4 English major who’s also an MC for the night. ‘We have been working diligently for the last three months behind the scenes to contribute to this music show.’


Grotesque and wild costumes designed by students, fantastic breakdancing group, and Year 4 English major Pham Thi Diem Thi, singing the 1960’s greatest hit Tous les garçons et les filles with French lecturer Diane Zorzi, are part of this talent.


The 2014 Christmas music concert greatly benefits from the hard work of students and staff both on and off stage. Over 60 students and teachers performers used their combined talents to bring to life the sounds of this season.
