This thread discusses the Content article: School Renovation Complete
That's awesome! I love the teacher putting the student back where he belongs. hehe. What song were they singing? Lyrics please... :)
A Londener teaching English? Golly good! In the afternoon, will they be served tea with biscuits? ;)
Without the original article online, I wanted to fill in this thread with this bit I pulled off the internet archive project:
Many of you have been wondering about the status of our Koh Pafang School Renovation project. We had been waiting for the kindergarten teacher to finish decorating her new classroom but we couldn't wait any longer to show you the results (if you watched our first podcast you got a sample).
As you can see from the photos, the building and playground are complete and the students are VERY happy. The project included; installing an entire playground, raising the floor six inches, celiing tiles, and walls with windows to create a comfortable classroom for the students to learn and take naps in. The anubahn (kindergarten) teacher and students love their new school building and playground. Thanks again to everyone who visits this site and to Zeta Psi and Ian for his fund raiser.
New English Teacher
We all know that a classroom and playground are good to have, but what really makes a difference in the quality of education are the teachers. That is why Isara is happy to announce, thanks to Travel to Teach, the Koh Pafang school will now have a native English teacher. The school has never had a foreigner teacher so the 153 students are very excited about learning from a foreigner. English is typically taught by Thais and, even though they do a great job teaching students how to read and write, it is important for them to hear the pronunciation of words from a foreigner. Thank you very much to Jemma Thomas for volunteering to teach at Koh Pafang school.
