After an October break (of three weeks) the Half Day School at DEPDC is back in the swing of things. We are now most of the way through our 2012-2013 school year! Students are about to enjoy another short break in the last half of December. Before we go, we’d like to give our beloved donors an update on all things HDS! Thanks to all of your generous assistance, the Half Day School has been able to continue providing education, vocational training, and material support for over 150 children from vulnerable communities in Thailand’s northern border areas.
Our regular classes have continued this term, with students learning English, Mathematics, Thai, Computer Skills, Science, Social Studies, Health, and various Vocational Skills. Our blog documents the diverse range of learning opportunities and fun-filled activities that the children of HDS partake in, which are made possible by donors like you.
Recent activities in the Half Day School include:
The Half Day School continuously tries to improve and diversify the students’ experience and learning opportunities. We’d like to tell you about some of our ongoing activities as well as some new ones.
(All HDS students are also provided with lunch every day.) Besides their academic education, students at HDS participate in vocational workshops including:
We have been greatly enjoying our term so far. As always, I welcome your feedback and suggestions on improving our students’ learning experiences. Once again, on behalf of the Half Day School students and their families, I extend my most sincere thanks to you for making it all possible. Your generous contributions make it possible for the children most at-risk for sex and labor trafficking to learn, grow and gain self-confidence!
Thank you so much,
DEPDC Director of Projects
