Child Center’s latest community project is Share a Shirt where we invite students to donate unwanted T-shirts. Maybe the t-shirt has shrunk in the wash or maybe the owner no longer supports Manchester United but Liverpool. Whatever the reason somebody in need will happily receive a T-shirt.
C3 students have been learning about clothes and, as both a life-skill and problem-solving task, practiced putting on a T-shirt and shorts. To make the task more challenging the t-shirts were turned inside out. The students had a lot of fun and marked another step along the road to independence.
The fruit and vegetable stall was soon sold out; Khun Jum’s shop will certainly have some new customers.
January 31 will be Fruit and Vegetable Day at the Child Center when our activities will be centered around that theme. We have invited Khun Jum, owner of OC Organic Shop located in the Nichada Club Shopping Center, to talk to our young students about growing fruit and vegetables. At 1:45 she will set up a stall at the gate to enable parents and staff to buy healthy organic fruit and vegetables. Try her produce. You won’t be disappointed!

As part of our silver jubilee celebrations, and in appreciation for the community support we have received, we will launch the International Transition Program, specifically designed for Thai students to add an international component to their education. It will be taught in English separate from our regular Grade 1–8 programs.
This new program will begin on March 16, 2020, with the aim of preparing students to enter an international or bilingual school in the future. The fees will be affordable to more families, but the same high standards of education will be maintained.
We are offering a free trial for students from 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. on Friday, March 13, 2020. We ask for your support in distributing the enclosed invitations to friends, neighbors or relatives. If they are interested, please ask them to contact Khun Wanchai at 02-960-3663 or email@example.com
Disney Dress–up Day
Course 1 in Child Center ended on Friday, December 20, with Disney Dress-up Day when students were invited to dress up as their favorite Disney character and bring their Disney toys to play with. Can you guess their characters from the photos?
The Child Center C1 and C2 classes enjoyed playing in an indoor playground at Kidzoona. The imaginative play area featuring a shopping market, ice–cream shop, kitchen, post office, and bakery was the center of attraction. From there, they rode bikes and cars around, played in the sand and in the sensory toy play area. They went on the bouncy slide, the large bouncy rolling wheel, and enjoyed the puzzle section. Everyone had a fun time and were totally absorbed in playing.

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.
