July Developments!

Our services continue to be in great demand in Krabi province and beyond this month, primarily for teaching English, though we have been diversifying into other areas… The start of July saw us taking on the leaders of the various communities of Ao Luk district in a football match to open the Ao Luk Non-Formal Education Centre’s sports day. Our opponents were decked out very professionally in their yellow & blue kits while our kits were a little more…eclectic. Despite some excellent performances on the pitch we lost 3-2, but we gave them a run for their money and gave the spectators a fair few laughs!

We’ve been getting around even more than usual; on top of the usual free English classes at the Non-Formal Education (NFE) Centre and in schools we have been providing much needed language support at a local vocational college in Klong Hin and a full day of English activities for students in nearby Khao Panom. The NFE Centre has been putting our skills to good use, with a two-day English Camp for their students as well as a basic conversation workshop for their teachers.

Most excitingly, Jon, Julia and Jess – on the Teaching Children programme – joined GVI staff Laura on a trip to the incredible Khao Sok National Park in Surat Thani province to teach 40 students from Phuket. They taught the kids about the flora & fauna of the park and were treated to some evening entertainment in return, as the kids took part in singing & dancing competitions. The Mayor of Phuket even turned up and demanded a performance from our resident songstress, Laura! Everyone had an amazing time and it was a great opportunity for Jon, Julia & Jess to see a slightly different but equally beautiful side of Thailand to the beaches and islands around Krabi.

A very eventful month for us!
