The New Term has Begun!

Our second term began at the Half Day School last Monday, October 31.

dsc01422This beginning of term was a beam of light in this dark time the nation is facing. Seeing the smiling faces of all of our students coming back showed the joy that there is for the future. With three new students joining us, we have 42 students this term.

Our students were re-divided into four classes, A through D. The teachers are hopeful that these smaller classes will help our students to learn more. Their vocational training classes also became smaller and the students have been able to have more one on one attention in their afternoon activities.

The students also had some added activities in these past two weeks to allow for mourning and reflection on the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Last Friday afternoon, all the students and staff joined together to honor His Majesty in a ceremony. Some of the older students have also spent a few afternoons viewing old videos of His Majesty and are still deeply saddened by his passing.

We would like to thank all of our supporters for their kindness and generosity. This new term would not have been possible without you and we are forever grateful. If you would like to support the Half Day School, please check out our GlobalGiving page here.

  1. I am specifically interested in any programming you have in regards to anti child trafficking and abuse. I was told that currently you only have a hot line. Do you go beyond that, or is that something from the past?
