Panyaden Green Contribution Day (Year 2 & 5)

Panyaden International School Year 2 and 5 students visit Pur Farm to plant trees

Doing our bit for conservation! Year 2 and Year 5 plant trees at Pur Farm to help rebuild and preserve our precious natural environment. Students were also able to see the trees they themselves planted 3 years ago. Pur Farm is a local, village-based project that aims to reforest land in Mae Taeng that was stripped of trees, upsetting the local ecosystem.

Planting Rice

In Thailand, rice is the staple diet, served across the nation at home, in restaurants and schools. Our K2 and K3 have been following the food chain back from table to field by learning how rice grows. Kru Jeab and Kru Fon, our K2 and K3 Home Room teachers, helped our students plant this crop on our very own little rice paddy plot.

It was fun wading in the ankle-deep water and trying to root the seedlings into the ground. But it was not easy bending down for long and we thought about how tiring it must be for farmers who do this every day. Do you remember the song “Planting Rice Is Never Fun”? Here are the lyrics:

Planting rice is never fun,
Bending over ’til the set of sun.

Cannot sit, cannot stand,
Plant the seedlings all by hand.*

Well, we hope that our hard work will pay off and our little seedlings will soon grow into strong rice plants. Our students learned that we will then drain out the water to allow the grains to mature before harvesting them. It will take a lot of patience to wait for this but we will try!
