The Dewey Student Council launched its first workshop with an interesting topic: GenZ depiction by TDSers.
The workshop was led by the Steering Committee of The Dewey School’s Student Council. The event is held every month, and this time, towards the ‘GenZ’s Career Orientation – Walk your child through their growth path’ workshop hosted by TDS at 8p.m on January 12th.
In this 90-minute workshop, the Student Council chaired by President Nguyen Huyen Anh led the workshop with maturity and confidence in front of teachers and representatives of Gen X, Y and Alpha. The highlight of the event was that GenZ transformed a monthly meeting into an ‘open’ workshop both with their leading and expression language. The topic was also up-to-date: ‘Gen Z in the eyes of Gen X, Y and Alpha’. Among a series of students’ practical issues, 3 were chosen as the speakers and representatives were in for a hot debate, namely: ‘Can parents read their children’ diaries?’, the stereotype of ‘Men shall be strong, while women shall be well-mannered and do housework’ and ‘Student romance, should or shouldn’t?’.
In the common statement of the workshop, GenZ and also The Dewey Schools put an emphasis on the following:
- GenZ’s privacy should be fully respected.
- In a world characterized by openness, equity and equality, men can cry and women can be leaders. Housework, cooking and home caring shall be shared between the two sides.
- Along with friendship, romantic feeling is also the most beautiful emotion at school age. To love or not to love, all choices are open … and it’s you who decides whether to accept it or wait for it.
The success of the workshop is shown when almost no one wanted to ‘sign out’ when the clock struck 10p.m. Rather than having an early bedtime or doing homework, the Dewey GenZ chose to stay to contribute and to shine with their mature ideas at their young age.
On behalf of the counseling and supporting teachers for the Student Council, Mr. Nguyen Trong Tung shared: ‘I am not surprised by the confident, passionate and youthful lead of the Student Council chaired by President Nguyen Huyen Anh. It is their activeness, creativity and responsibility in hosting the first workshop that I’m so proud of. From the familiar topics, discussion and sharing on agreeing and opposing viewpoints, the workshop delegates could both show off their confidence, debating skills without any pens and papers and depicting the portrait of The Dewey School’s GenZ, who constitutes a global citizen community that excels in technology, willing to learn and explore the new, energetic, self-driven and also responsible to both themselves and the community.
The following workshop of the Dewey Student Council (DSC) is projected to be on board at 8p.m on February 8th, 2022 with the ‘Disconnect to Reconnect’ topic. The workshop will be highlighted by a 120-minute challenge to disconnect from the Internet to come back to your family and spread out your love.
