Each year we welcome over 2,500 students and staff from schools worldwide.
St Andrew's Samakee Year 5 students spent their residential week exploring historic Kanchanaburi. Throughout the week the group intensely studied the conditions of railway camps during World War II. Connections were made throughout the week to the Prisoners of War (POWs), how they would have coped and how they experienced the environment surrounding them.
A key coping mechanism discussed by the St Andrew's group was the team work involved, or mateship. The group spent time working themselves on cooperation. They discussed consideration, communication, and the importance of challenge. The group was truly compassionate to each other during these games, as well as developing compassion and understanding for the POWs that toiled in Kanchanaburi.
