DAY 3

The students headed off to the local school today which was a short boat trip across to the nearby island. Here, they became teachers, treating the local Thai children to a morning of sports activities including jump rope, egg and spoon races and a final tug-of-war competition. After lunch, the students held arts and crafts classes, teaching the local pupils how to decorate eggs, make colourful plant pots, do perspective sketches, make fun paper hats and also mini-guitars out of paper plates and elastic bands. The children from the local school loved the activities and especially enjoyed interacting with our students, who did a wonderful job. Precious memories were created and our students are looking forward to working with the school again this Thursday.

 

今天学生们乘船到当地一所小学开展志愿服务。在那里,学生们变成了“老师”带领当地的小朋友开展多项运动。比如跳绳,匙蛋赛跑和拔河等。吃过午饭,学生们又呈上了艺术和手工课程。和小朋友在一起装饰彩蛋,制作彩色种植盆,涂色,制作有趣的纸帽子和纸盘-橡皮筋 迷你小吉他。当时的小朋友对这一系列活动都很感兴趣并且乐意和我们的学生交流。整个活动过程友好而珍贵,期待着周四的再会。

 

DAY 4

The students woke early this morning for a quick stroll or jog along the incredible beach close to the resort before breakfast. In the morning, they worked in the meditation room on their Extended Essays and other schoolwork, before heading in to KhaoLak for lunch and an afternoon of shopping. Before dinner, the GVI staff gave an informative and eye-opening presentation on the problem and impact of littering on beaches in preparation for tomorrow’s beach clean project.

 

 第四天,学生们早早起床洗漱完毕沿着迷人的海滩散步或者慢跑。随后按照安排,进入冥想室内做扩展论文研究和完成其他学科作业。中午在KhaoLak享受泰国美食,并在附近超市购物。晚饭之前,GVI的工作人员给学生们讲解了海滩废弃物污染的现状。学生们受益匪浅,感受颇多并为明天的海滩清理活动做好了积极准备。

DAY 3

Today students woke up full of energy ready for a new day. This time, the students were more prepare on what to expect at the orphanage. When we arrived at the orphanage, there was a graduation event happening. The students who were graduating are about to leave for their public school education. The whole school celebrated with music and food. On the hand, our Y11 students were not distracted and kept themselves busy with a final session wall painting, joined by another group of volunteers from Europe.

能量满满的一天又开始啦~吸取昨天的经验,今天学生们都有备而来。当我们到达学校的时候,学校正在为马上要去公立学校的学生举行毕业典礼。整个学校都沉浸在典礼的音乐中。但同学们并为此而干扰,他们和今天新加入的欧洲志愿者一起完成了墙壁粉刷涂鸦的工作。

 

Afterwards, a short lunch break, some students continued with wall painting and drawing while the rest were playing games and spending time with the children. The schoolyard was filled with laughter and smiles. When it was time to leave, the children chased the bus while the Y11 students said their tearful goodbyes. It was truly a bittersweet day.

经过短暂的午休,一部分学生继续粉刷和涂鸦墙壁,另一部分学生与小朋友一起做游戏。整个操场充满了大家的欢声笑语。又到了离别的时候,看着追赶我们汽车的小朋友,大家依依不舍地说了再见。虽然辛苦,但今天也是充满了欢乐的一天。

 

DAY 4

Day 4 started with the students reporting early at 6.00am. Although they had to wake up very early in the morning, all of them managed to report on time. We left the hostel in Singburi at 6.00am and took a minivan to Kanchanaburi. The journey took around 3 hours and we reached Kanchanburi at 9.00am.

第四天早晨六点,我就起床出,乘坐小巴士,离开信武里。经过三个小程,早上九点,我到达了北府。

After checking in to our hostel in Kanchanaburi, we took a van to the Elephant conversion place called the Elephant’s World. It is a non–profit organisation where tourists and volunteers take care of the 26 old, sick, handicapped and rescued elephants.
在酒店放置行李后,我们立即前往一个叫“大象世界”的大象保基地。是一个非盈利组织组织志愿者在里照着26大象,26大象中有年很大的大象,有生病的大象,有残疾大象,也有被该组织营救的大象。
Firstly our guide briefed us on the safety rules in the Elephant’s World. After that, he took us to a hut where we were taught how to prepare and cook the sticky rice balls for the elephants. It was a great learning experience for our students as most of them do not have the habit of cooking in their home. 
首先,我的向导给了“大象世界”的安全守。之后,他在营房中教我们如何准备制作大象的饲料—糯米球。这对我们的学生来说收获颇丰,大部分他们在家中都不会做饭。
Next our guide took us to the bathing area of the elephants where our students get the chance to bath and scrub the elephants. Although our students were very wet after that, but all of them enjoyed the whole process.
然后,我的向导带去大象的浴室,在儿我的学生大象擦洗。尽管最后大家身上都湿透了,但是大家都十分开心。
Overall the itinerary we had for our day stay was great. It gave us the opportunity to meet, feed, wash and interact with elephants very closely. The volunteers educated us about the ill treatment of elephants in the tourism industry and explained how their non-profit organisation helped to rescue and rehabilitate them. It was a very rewarding experience for the students.

总之,在大象营的第一天十分精彩。我们学习了如何给大象喂食、洗澡,也尝试着和大象互动。大象营地的志愿者向我们解释了旅游业对大象的伤害(骑大象)以及类似的无盈利组织是如何减少这样的伤害的。值得纪念的一天。
