All the time! Mr JT
No words really can describe what you have done for the school. Without you, no overstatement at all, this school would not exist. Thanks for putting up with the political maneuvers by people trying to undermine your efforts. And for growing a tough skin to shrug off nay sayers. And for digging deep into your pockets – all of them – to put this school together, You will get your reward. In the meantime, you have our undying gratitude. Thank you. Thank you very very much.
March 2011 to current Mrs Phuong
Phuong has been the pillar of strength for the school. She is the one who has had to spend hours in meetings, politicizing and opening doors with the various committees, government and provincial departments and police commissioners. She has truly had the difficult part of the operation. Our huge thanks go out to her for her patience and determination to get the school all legalized and licensed. Not an easy task. Let’s also not forget the other smaller tasks she has performed day in and day out. Checking lunches are made on time, overseeing payments and invoicing and the list goes on. Thank you Phuong.
February – August 2011 Hugh Hosman
A huge thank you to Mr Hugh for the hours and hours he put in to work on budgets for the school and the foundation. He wrote business plans, proposals, helped with the design of brochures, and in general typed his fingers to the bone. He collected information on a possible curriculum and negotiated with US educational institutions. And these are just some of the things he did for the school. We are totally grateful for all the effort he put in.

Stefano brought great enthusiasm and passion to the school. The swimming program is his project. Getting the school’s kids water safe was his passion. He also spent hours working on school books and ensuring the curriculum was well covered with text books. Thanks Stefano. You did good.

No thank you’s could possible be complete without thanking Ms Anh. She took on the additional job of administrator to the School when she was already 100% busy with New Horizon work.

His great skills and patience combined well to ensure that the school would have an extensive images and video library. His work certainly contributed to this site’s fun bit and pieces. Thank you so much Mr Christiaan. We love you!
