Then and Now
After studying Switzerland for International Family Day C3 students moved on to learn about Thailand. The students were able to contribute a lot of information about, food, animals, flowers, and places of interest from their own experience. On Thursday, November 21, we invited two grandmothers into the classroom to answer questions about life in Thailand when they were small girls. The children were surprised to know that then children had to walk to school, did not eat at Pizza Hut or Mc Donald’s, and did not have mobile phones, laptops or even computers. Televisions were only available to a few families.
It was an interesting session, and we should like to thank Khun Udomsin Taweesriumnuay, Minseung’s grandmother and Khun Pranee Boonyarit, Great’s grandmother for sharing their childhood memories with us.
