Understanding difference. Last week, Prathom 2 and 5 students spent a morning with children at a local village school, Wat Prachakasem in Ban Pong. We took a total of 7,025 THB cash donations from parents and teachers plus sales proceeds from ‘My Project’ It’s All Natural Food, to the poorly resourced school, exchanged gifts that both sets of students had made and shared learning activities and games together. A real-life opportunity to practise the Wise Habit, ‘Caga’ (being generous).
Head Teacher Kru Dokmai and School Director Kru Neil welcomed new students back to school in this morning’s assembly. They asked old students how they can make their new friends feel welcome. ‘Ask them their name,’ suggested one Prathom 2 (P2) student. ‘Show them around the school’ proposed another from P5. ‘Do exercise with them!’ piped up one 6-year old girl from P1.
New teachers then introduced themselves, followed by some guidelines about where to play and keeping safe on our new climbing frame.
“We are very excited to see you all again and we are looking forward to a great year of learning ahead,” said Kru Neil.
