Students from Garden International School (GIS) have been on a residential trip at the Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Pattaya.

When the Year 4 group arrived, they went to the junior club house for a safety talk, then changed into their swimming clothes and put on the life jackets. They were then put into groups to learn about the parts of the small beautiful boats called Optimists.

Students had plenty of hands-on experience during their trip to the yacht club.Students had plenty of hands-on experience during their trip to the yacht club.

Once they had all had a go on land they went sailing in the sea. Students took turns to sail the boats and while there was a lot to remember, they all had fun.

After a brief rest they were back out on the water, learning what to do if the boat capsizes.

The next day, they went to the nearby garden to do some eco-art with their roommates.
