On behalf of FED and the local Burmese migrant community, we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to those who have generously contributed to the Global Giving project aimed at providing education for Burmese children. We, as well as the Burmese children recipients of these fundamental gifts, are immensely thankful for the responses, the support, and the time you have given in pursuit of this cause. While education, especially for youth, is of the utmost importance and beyond the confines of a price or monetary value, these are projects that FED will continue to provide thanks to the community of support we are fortunate enough to have made with you. As we maintain communication with our valued supporters, please do continue to look out for ways you can support the Burmese migrant community through the work that FED is doing and through our future Global Giving campaigns. Thank you again for your support and compassion.
Since our Learning Centers reopened both students and teachers alike have been busy bees, keeping themselves thoroughly occupied and entertained with a number of extra curricular activities. Here are a couple....
Currently in Unified Learning Center, we teach Burmese, English, Thai, Mathematics, Social Studies (history, Science, Geography) and Art for Burmese migrant students. We started the second chapter end test from 8th to 12th (Myanmar, Thai, English, Math, and Integrated) of October for 2012-2013 Academic Years.
The Nutrition program has been operating in the nursery to enrich the health and nutrition of the children.
The health education activities have been provided two days per month in the unified learning center for hygiene, self health guidance, and to educate on general knowledge about good health.
This period, one English speaking volunteer has been supporting English in Grade 4 to Grade 7 with pronunciation, phonetics, and conversation. In addition we have started the computer class for Grades 3 to 7 with the introduction of the computer to the Burmese migrant students. This is the first exposure to computers for most students except the chapter end test from October 8th to 12th. We taught a computer basics course, the typing method and plan to teach painting for the new students. For Grade 7, we taught the practical use of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe PageMaker, Adobe Photoshop CS2, basic internet and web development class.
Burmese language lessons for integration students began to support the development of the native language of Burmese children attending Thai schools, a Burmese teaching program has begun to be implemented. Burmese children studying at Parkweek and Khuk Khak Thai Schools have Burmese language class every Saturday at The Unified Learning Center.
