MI Radio was in attendance as former students from Yangon’s Insein Government Technical Institute attended a ceremony to honour retired teachers on Sunday.
The event reflected the Myanmar tradition of students showing respect for their former teachers each year.
Some of those who attended the ceremony returned to Myanmar to meet up again with friends and former teachers.
This year rewards were given to the children of former students who passed the 2018 matriculation exam. Some of the students set up booths on the campus to share food and books for everyone who came along.
MI Radio’s new charity MI Helping Hand was also invited to attend the event and received donations of clothing, shoes and household items that will be distributed to people in need all over Myanmar.
