Homeland Project

Homeland Project

In the first semester, the BCIS Grade 8 students undertook the project "Ben Que". For 2 months from October 2017 to December 2017. The aim of the project is to give us an opportunity to learn more about the culture of Vietnam, especially the culture of the northern countryside.

This was a cross-disciplinary project, so we applied knowledge from different subjects to recreate the picture of the homeland with familiar images such as the lotus, banyan tree, communal house and village gate. Through the study of literature, my friends and I have a better understanding. We have learned the origin, the structure and the symbols of the northern Vietnamese villages.


In geography, we learned more about traditional festivals in the north such as Huong Pagoda Festival, Tran Temple, and Buffalo Fighting Festival. In addition, we have discovered more about the role of the bamboo in the war against French and American soldiers in history. The English language helped us to use vocabulary of countryside and grammar to write our reports.

This project could  not succeed without the knowledge of art. We have utilized recycled items to make models and learned how to arrange the composition of the scene accurately to attract viewers.
