Save The Trees!

”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.

The End Of Summer School 2011

Student from English International School in Chiang Mai

6 May was our last day of Summer School, ‘Love the Earth’. More than 60 students explored and experienced through hands-on learning the key elements of nature and how to care for them.

Spending a week each on earth, air, water, trees, and how to care for the planet, students participated in activities like planting flowers, clay moulding, and kite design and learned about recycling and re-using objects found in daily life. And of course, they made lots of new friends! Enjoy the photos below.
