Wells International School recently, on December 14th, took a trip to the nearby Ban Huay Yang school in Thailand with the aim of fostering a stronger sense of community and extending a helping hand. The visit included a chance for students to connect and a donation drive to support the local school.
Students, teachers, and parents all pitched in, contributing essential supplies and educational materials to benefit the students and teachers at Ban Huay Yang. The items, ranging from school supplies to basic necessities, were chosen to make a positive impact on the learning environment at the local school. Parents and students were encouraged to donate books and toys for the students. However, the response was overwhelming, with the community donating cleaning products, boxes of toys and piles of books for the Ban Huay Yang School.
The day kicked off with Wells students and staff arriving at Ban Huay Yang School, ready to engage with their new friends. Both schools got to know each other, sharing activities and experiences and creating connections that went beyond cultural differences and language. The middle school and high school students organized games such as bag painting, volleyball and football games, and activities such as duck duck goose. The students all participated in the activities with enthusiasm.
Wells International School’s visit to Ban Huay Yang School exemplifies how educational institutions can play a vital role in fostering empathy, understanding, and collaboration. By reaching out to neighboring communities, schools contribute to creating a more interconnected world and making a positive impact on the lives of students. We look forward to many more opportunities to collaborate and connect with our local community.
