Bangkok Post Article – Human Resource Watch: The Inclusive Approach
Students from C3 and C4 classes went on a field trip to Pa Jeep Farm on Friday, December 13, and enjoyed a memorable day. After a warm up song with our guide, we were introduced to the goats and allowed to pet and feed them. Next we visited the ducks, cocks, hens, and baby chicks. Each student had their own chick in a small basket to pet. They learned how the chicks were hatched and were given an unfertilized egg which they carried to the kitchen area. Here the students made mini doughnuts, cooked their egg to make an omelet, and fried organic pak boon, which they had picked, for their lunch. Probably the highlight of the day was meeting the buffaloes and being brave enough to sit on one!
A great day for us as everything was well – organized, and our guide geared his explanations to the age of the students. Certainly we would recommend Pa Jeep Farm as a good family day out.
During the month of November Child Center students have been sorting through their toys to find those that they had outgrown or no longer played with. These toys were solemnly placed in boxes for donating to less fortunate children.
On Monday, December 9, Sally Elliott, Chairperson of Nonthaburi Neighborhood Reach, came to Rose Marie Academy to meet the students and receive the donations. She asked them to imagine their homes without any toys and told them that the toys that they had given would make some little boy or girl, who had no toys, very happy.
The young students learned a valuable lesson in sharing their possessions and caring for those less fortunate.
