Each year we welcome over 2,500 students and staff from schools worldwide.
The Year 7 humanities and sciences teachers of NIST combined to bring their classes to explore a little of the Chao Phraya River and the global issue of clean water.
Each class spent the day investigating the importance of Chao Phraya in Thai lives, with particular reference to the community of Ko Kret.
Throughout the day we used the Compass of Sustainability to facilitate our investigations, with the compass points of Nature, Economy, Society and Well-being helping us to think about the communities we observed. We also did a round of water testing to help highlight any indicators of water quality.
On Ko Kret we split into small groups to cover the entire island and look in-depth at the community whilst talking to locals to get more insight. On returning to the barge we were able to pull together all of our ideas from the day, using the ISIS pyramid to identify indicators, systems, innovations and strategies for implementation.
All groups worked extremely hard throughout the week to produce exciting ideas, and an interesting and educational time was had by all.
