Year 6 Kanchanaburi Trip (15 – 17 May 2013)
We are always happy to welcome repeat clients. The barge teaching team was very happy to be working again with the Y6 staff and students from Regents International School, Pattaya, who had been on a trip to Chiang Mai earlier in the year.
We headed off for three action-packed days exploring and learning about Kanchanaburi’s role in the Second World War in Asia. The trip started with a visit to the famous bridge over the River Kwai, where the students walked across the bridge and made detailed field sketches. During the trip we visited the Hellfire Pass Museum and the Thailand Burma Railway Museum, as well as pausing to pay our respects to the fallen Prisoners of War at the Don Rak cemetery in Kanchanaburi town.
Other highlights of the trip were the evening campfire - with marshmallows, of course! On the last morning the students had an opportunity to play some great active team-building games at the trip accommodation, as well as having a swim in the river-side infinity pool. We were even lucky enough to watch the elephants from a local trekking camp bathe in the river every morning as we ate breakfast.
