Three of our community partners joined the Regents students over Round Square Week to take part in a number of sports and games.  On Wednesday Hand to Hand brought 12 primary children, on Thursday Wat Pong School brought over 70 secondary students and on Friday 25 primary students from the Deaf School took part.

Over the three days, students participated in a wide range of sporting activities – from rounders and football to dodgeball and catch the flag.  To cool down in the afternoon students had some time in the pool to relax.  It was great to see some of our community partners enjoying the use of our facilities – and making new friends through sport.  Some of our girls volunteered to spend extra time with some of the younger community partners – who were a little young to join in with the main events.  They played a number of games with them – such as duck, duck, goose and also helped them with painting activities.

With one of our community partners coming from the deaf school, our students had the challenge of how to communicate their ideas with the children – and more than a few now are keen to learn some sign-language!  We look forward to more community links with Thai schools in the future.
