All teachers in the school participated in the training course.

Teacher Nguyen Thanh Tung speaks in the training course
Participants enthusiastically joined group discussion about positive discipline measures that can be used in classroom management and plan to apply these measures to build friendly classrooms.
Participants contribute ideas in developing positive discipline measures
At the end of the training course, teachers have developed more ideas about applying positive discipline in school such as using emotion scale, funny mailbox, message, etc which will contribute to replace one – way teaching method and punishment on students by positive discipline and teacher-student interactions.
Lessons learnt from the training course are shared among participants
The training course has received good feedback from participants. The school board and teachers have committed to apply positive discipline measures in the school year 2021-2022 to end corporal punishment and improve teaching quality in school.
