What a year it has been with our young learners at Kamala School who without your support would not have been able to learn English - their key to a career and a better future for them and their families.

Thank you!

As the new year approaches, and we have a new project ready to launch, we are excited to share with you some of the many achievements our students have made during 2019.


With the generous support of donors such as yourself, we were able to raise the funds necessary to support our Primary Year 4 class English education for an entire school year, running from May 2019 to March 2020. You have given 20 disadvantaged Thai children in 4th grade the opportunity to learn English from a qualified, fluent English teacher. Consequently, these students were and will be able to develop their English skills along with their potential for advanced financial futures.


The students of Primary 4, in both our English programme and our EIS programme, have shown great improvements in their English speaking skills as well as increased confidence in learning. During this last term, our 10 year olds have enjoyed learning about school subjects, different school places and their favorite foods. They are now able to effectively communicate where things are, what their favorite subjects are and have also learnt how to talk about what kinds of food they like and dislike. In their Science in English classes, our young learners have been taught about different sources of water in the world and their English names. Their science teacher, Jerlin, has also talked about why clean water is so important for the planet and started introducing the issue of climate change. With teacher Jes, our qualified Mathematics teacher, they have learnt about measurements such as mass and volume - they were all very interested and excited!


Moreover, these students showed extraordinary initiative, asking for additional tutoring during their lunch breaks. Our teachers were so inspired by the students' eagerness to learn, they sacrificed their lunch breaks to open up their classrooms to all interested students. The students asked to focus on Math taught in English as they felt that area needed the most improvement.

Well, the first semester of the Thai 2019-2020 school year has come to an end and the students excelled more than ever before! We are thrilled to share with you some of the many success stories that have come from the school we support in Kamala, Phuket.

The Kindergarten class was comprised of excited 4-6 year olds who kept Teacher Jes on her toes! They entered the classroom each day with enthusiasm and excellent retention of vocabulary. In addition to vocabulary and introductory English phrases, they mastered their ABC's. Knowing the letters and phonetic sounds of the English alphabet are the most important building blocks of becoming fluent in English and we are proud to have helped these young learners get that much closer to future opportunities.

Two of our newest and youngest students in Primary 1, EQ and Nit, quickly rose to the top of their class. EQ is one of those students who only needs explaining once and then he becomes independent, finishing his work on time and with very few mistakes. He is also one of the most polite students, making sure to use manners when interacting with teachers and fellow students. And he always pays attention to what is going on in class, which can be hard for the wandering mind of a 6-year old boy! Nit is another Primary 1 student who demonstrated outstanding effort to learn in the classroom. She was one of the smartest students in class, often finishing work first and then helping slower students understand the assignment. So thoughtful!

Students in Primary 4 showed extraordinary initiative, asking for additional tutoring during their lunch breaks. Our teachers were so inspired by the students' eagerness to learn, they sacrificed their lunch breaks to open up their classrooms to all interested students. As seen in the photos, the students asked to focus on Math taught in English as they felt that area needed the most improvement. 

We also had one of our former English teachers, Teacher Mac, return to school with some of his univeristy students. They related to our students, having come from disadvantaged backgrounds, and motivated them to continue learning English to improve their economic stability in the future. With English, scholarship and grant opportunities for higher education become available, paving the way to a more sustainable life.

Dear Supporter,

The 2019-2020 school year has begun! This term we have welcomed 200 new students at the two government schools we support. This means we are now supporting over 800 students in total with English education!

With your help we were able to maintain our 5 full time, fully qualified, fluent English speaking teachers. Our teachers have put in endless hours designing this year’s curriculum and classwork, inclusive of English, Math and Science. All of these subjects are taught in English, expanding the students’ English vocabulary exponentially.

Our teachers are very passionate about teaching, as seen in their class preparation and classroom presence. Each lesson is constructed with lesson objectives and student development in mind, utilizing donated classroom supplies such as paper, pencils, glue, erasers and scissors for students to complete interactive classwork.

Pictured here are photos of Teacher Hamant’s Science in English classes this month. The students are learning about plant anatomy and the differences between living and nonliving things. He is very animated in the classroom and enjoys bringing children into nature to discuss classroom topics for a fun, hands-on learning environment.

We are so grateful to each and every one of our donors who enable us to educate and inspire hundreds of underprivileged children. You are helping us change lives and futures, and for that we say THANK YOU!

 

Sincerely,

The Students,

Teachers and Staff at

Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation
