Today, we learned about wise habit, “Caga” (“จาคะ”, being generous). Master Caga showed us how to be generous in a skit. Master Metta was sick and needed blood. Master Caga came to help and asked if anyone could donate blood. Kru William came forward to do so. This was a good story of Caga in action.
The school was honoured by a visit from well–known monk Venerable Ajahn Vajiramedhi yesterday. Venerable Vajiramedhi has an interest in children’s education and currently supports many schools. He was particularly interested to know how we integrate Buddhist values and green living with our curriculum.

Well-being: You Are What You Eat
Kindergarten 1 focused on well-being this week and practiced healthy habits! They used their artistic creativity and turned vegetables into paintbrushes, stamping their own gardens. The K1 caterpillars put on their chef’s hats and cooked up some fried rice and blended fruit shakes. They worked in teams to create their own solar cookers and harnessed the sun’s energy to heat their banana slices. With all this extra energy, they zoomed around school, kicking soccer balls and climbing up trees.

We started today’s wise habit session on Metta-Karuna (being kind and compassionate) with a sketch from our teachers about two dogs.
Kru Pond is the proud owner of one dog, which is cute and well taken care of while the other is homeless. The homeless pup wants to play with Kru Pond’s dog but she does not allow it to because it is dirty and ragged.
In comes Master Metta Karuna who explains that we should always be kind to people regardless of who they are, as well as animals like the poor homeless puppy. The session ended with Kru Neil and Kru Michel teaching us the Metta song which we all sang along to.
