Thailand group 1

泰国第一组

Arriving late the night before, all students quickly settled into their rooms at Thai Life Homestay Resort to get some rest before the next day’s activities. After a delicious breakfast buffet, they took part in their first Global Vision International (GVI) presentation, covering information on the programme, a risk assessment and a fascinating insight into Thai culture. Students were taught how to say hello and thank you in Thai, as well as other important aspects of Thai life before sharing their interesting reflections on what they hope to gain in the coming week working with GVI. Next, lunch at a local restaurant was followed by a brief tour around the Ban Nam Khem village. Here, the students visited the emotive Tsunami Memorial Park, which commemorates those who lost their lives in the 2014 Tsunami disaster that hit the PhangNga area particularly badly. Later in the afternoon, the students had some free time to rest, reflect and prepare for their own presentations on Mangrove Parks, Turtles and Tsunamis which were enthusiastically given before a scenic buffet dinner on the nearby beach.

       尽管抵达普吉岛的时间较晚但是学生们仍然以饱满的热情在本次活动的目的地泰式风情家庭式度假胜地安营扎寨为接下来的行程积极准备。早晨用罢美味早餐学生们聆听了GVI的第一场报告了解了本次活动的基本信息对可能遇到的困难和风险进行评估并初步体验了泰国文化GVI的老师寓教于乐教会了学生如何用泰语打招呼和表示感谢以及一些其他的日常用语和重要的注意事项学生们也分享了自己期望在为期一周的CAS活动中所能获得的成长和进步

Thailand group 2

泰国第二组

On the 2nd of March, 19 of our Year 11 IBDP students went on a school learning excursion trip to Bangkok. We left school at around 4.30pm and took a coach to Shanghai Pudong airport. The flight took about 4 hours and we reached Bangkok at around 4.00am the next day.

32日下午四点半,119位学生和3位老一起离开学校前往机,开始他的泰国曼谷志愿者之行经过四个小行,在第二天凌晨四点左右到达了泰国曼谷。

Our first stop was a visit to the Wat Phi Khun Thong temple. According to our guide, this temple is the home of the second largest Buddha statue in Bangkok. We were taught how to give a simple prayer and also how to make a wish in front of the big Buddha.

由于漫长的旅途,第一天并没有安排志愿者活。我先去了哇披功寺,是曼谷的第二大佛像。在佛像前,我了泰国当地寺祈福文化。

Next stop our guide took us to the local market and convenient store where our student get to buy some of the local products and also get to taste some of the local delicacies, such as the famous mango sticky rice.

第二站是当地的市与便利超市,在里我学生添置了一些必要的生活用品,同购买了当地特色商品,了当地的传统美食,如芒果糯米

Our guide then took us back to the hostel where he conducted a simple Thailand language crash course and also introduced some Thailand culture to our students. Although the lesson was only about half an hour, but our students managed to memorize some key phrases in order to communicate with the local children in orphanage.

最后我回到宿舍,学了当地的文化与基。尽管只有半小程,可是同学们还是努力住了很多常用单词以便于在孤儿院的活动中更好得与当地的小朋友沟通。

After dinner, we were given a welcome party by the locals. It was some Thai traditional dance and our students even get to participate with the dance at the end of the show!

饭过后,我们参加了一场欢迎晚会。当地人表演了一些传统舞蹈并且在晚会最后邀请我们学生一起参与舞蹈。

Overall the first day of the trip was tiring due to the hot weather but our students enjoyed themselves a lot.

第一天的活然因的天气,大家都有一些疲,但每一个人都很享受其中。
