The residential trip included a three hour walk through the forest, lakeside and hills. Beautiful views were the reward for the students’ efforts, as was seeing gibbons in their natural habitat. They also climbed around 100 steps to take in both the foot and the mouth of the stunning Haew Narok waterfall and sketch and draw what they found. The trip was also filled with successful night safaris, on which we saw elephants, porcupines, slow lorises and many deer.
Not only was this a once in a life time education experience, the children who attended showed great maturity, confidence and social skills to make the trip as rewarding for these reasons as educational reasons.
