09 - 12 February 2015
Monday 9 February saw Regent’s Bangkok Year 5 climb aboard the barge for a four-day trip jam-packed with activities. Our trip offered the students a wide range of activities - making their own perfume with vegetation on Ko Kret, toasting mammoth marshmallows at campfire, exploring Ayutthaya’s ancient temples, considering species adaptations with a Bird Beak Buffet and learning about water pollution and our impacts on the Chao Phraya with activities such as Common Water and Watershed Puzzle.
Of all the many activities Year Five took part in, we especially enjoyed taking a dip in the Chao Phraya river. Students loved jumping in and splashing about amongst the water hyacinth. As well as swimming, students proved to be budding birdwatchers as the barge resounded with ‘ooohs’ and ‘ahhhs’ whenever a student saw one of the Chao Phraya’s many birds, a particular favourite of which was the Black-capped Kingfisher.
A huge part of our trip was also seeing students work together in groups, living as a community. Always willing to grab the mop, help out with cooking or taking showers in three minutes, students helped out to live together on the barge.
