Learning English and Having Fun After School

By Tina Hall | Director of Operations

Enjoying board games

Last term in our after-school Coconut Club at Kamala School, the children continued to enjoy the ever-popular skateboarding, skipping, board games and arts & crafts all whilst practicing English and learning new vocabulary from their teachers and volunteers.

Colouring and drawing activities helped the children improve their fine motor skills and have great fun too! They were also creative in their computer lab – designing Valentine’s Day cards and printing them out to give to their friends and teachers. The children enjoyed learning how to manage money: buying furniture for their pretend home, learning the English names of the items, how much they cost and counting out what was needed to buy what they wanted.  Chess and checkers became great favourites in the last few months and their teachers were so pleased, as these fantastic brain-training games help the children with their concentration and the ability to think strategically.

March saw the end of the school year and after receiving their graduating certificates, the students in primary year 6 went to their teachers to say thank you and goodbye as they will move to senior school in mid May. Although those living at school can still join our afterschool club, the charity can’t afford to teach English to senior-year students. The teachers symbolically tied a string around the students’ wrists whilst they gave them wishes and inspiring messages for their futures.

As we start the new school year in Thailand this month, our teachers are looking forward to many more fun learning moments to come. Phuket Has Been Good To Us teachers and volunteers could not help these children without the support of our donors from around the world. Thanks to your kind donations we are helping the children change their futures for the better. We thank you for being there for them.
