Scout Day – M2 – 2009

“I think one of the most interesting school functions I have attended this year is a hiking trip led by students”, says teacher Mac.  In Thailand, boy scouting is a regular academic study for all students.  As a culminating activity this year, students in Mattayom 2 participated in a ten-kilometer hike around the beautiful park located just behind the school.  Along the way, students participated in many fun activities including walking across a stream on a narrow pole, swimming in a nearby river, building a fire and many other fun games sponsored by the Thai teachers.  This activity turned out to be a great way for me to learn more about Thai culture and learn more about the daily lives of my students outside of English program.
