Today we have a very special kind of student profile: we want to extend our most heartfelt thanks to our student, Lai Hoang, who daily goes above and beyond to help at CIES. Originally from Vietnam, Lai has been studying at our NE Welcome Centre location since October 2015. Lai has a quiet, happy laugh and a smile that makes his eyes crinkle up. He can often be seen watering the flower beds and helping Analiza open the school for the day. He gives so much of himself to CIES, and his contributions to our school are immeasurable. For this, and the dozens of kindnesses he shows those around him every day, we wanted to thank him, and as such, presented Lai with a brand-new laptop, gifted by an anonymous donor.
Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for us, Lai! Much love from everyone at CIES.
