On 10th March, children from the Camillian Social Center in Rayong spent an afternoon with students from the Regent’s School, Pattaya and Lakefield College School, Canada at Nam Rin Beach. The Camillian Social Center is a community partner of Regent’s and this was one of many events that Regent’s hosts with various community partners.
The Camillian Social Center in Rayong is a part of the St. Camillus Foundation of Thailand. The center offers assistance to people of all ages living with HIV/AIDS. The Camillian Social Center in Rayong is also one of seven major projects in South-East Thailand that cooperate in fighting the problem of HIV/AIDS.

Just like during the previous year, the games at Nam Rin Beach started with a tug-of-war. The children then separated into various activity groups, such as a sand-castle competition and football, among others. After about an hour’s worth of entertainment in the scorching sun, everybody headed off to a nearby restaurant for a buffet lunch. After the lunch, the Camillian children were treated with ice cream, funded by a donation from the Regent’s Student Guild. The activities then continued with cleaning up a large part of Nam Rin Beach, followed by some very amusing improvised dance.

Many hours after first arriving at Nam Rin, the event came to a close and it was time for the Regent’s and Camillian participants to part again. Yet the separation was only temporary, as both groups will meet again in May.
