Panyaden social contribution. Y3 and Y6/7 enjoy a day with the children of Wat Khiriket School in Hang Dong creating fun art and playing together. They also had the chance to learn how the host students make colourful Hmong-style embroidery and to teach their new friends how to make slime! A day of sharing!

”I heard that you were cutting down some trees near our school and I was a bit upset because I Iove trees and our school will not be beautiful without them. I know your reasons for doing this, but I want to ask you not to cut all of them down. I hope you think again but if you don’t, you will know that I don’t agree with you.” From Lili, age 10
”I heard you that you are going to put cement around the river….the reason is good but the solution isn’t. There are plenty of other ways to fix it, for example, you could do the opposite of what you’re doing and plant more trees so the soil will get stronger or you could put stones around instead of cement.” From Kyria, age 11
Panyaden students met with and wrote letters to an official from the Royal Irrigation Department, Khun Suthisak, to voice their concerns about the cutting down of trees along the canal next to the school. Khun Suthisak explained that the base of the canal will be concreted to reduce soil erosion but most of the large trees on our side will be preserved. We were proud of our students who expressed their concerns for the environment thoughtfully and confidently. We thank Khun Suthisak for listening and patiently answering all of our questions.
It’s ‘My Project’! Panyaden Year 2-4 learn about baking with natural ingredients as well as how to run a small business of their own during ‘My Project’. Our students made scones flavoured with butterfly pea flowers freshly picked from our school garden and organic strawberry jam for sale. They will use the proceeds to plan and budget for their next natural product project.
