Year 5 support the Baan Dek Foundation and The Cambodia Clean Water Project.
Thanks for supporting our charity.
We collected nearly 9000 baht which will go to the Baan Dek Foundation.
This year, Year 5 are delighted to be supporting two charities: the Baan Dek Foundation and the Cambodia Clean Water Project.
What is the Cambodia Clean Water Project?
The Cambodia Clean Water Project is a charity project that has been building wells for families in Siem Reap, Cambodia for over ten years. Many rural communities in our neighboring country of Cambodia do not always have access to clean, safe water. As a result, families have little choice but to drink from whatever source is available, such as rivers, lakes, or a canal. Sadly, these unsanitary conditions often cause typhoid, cholera, dysentery, and other preventable diseases.
Last year in late November, Year 5 responded to our request for Christmas shoeboxes to give to children who are not as fortunate as ourselves in Chiang Mai.
The children are often vulnerable and living in construction site camps and urban slums.
Amazingly, 141 children from nine most in-need communities received a Year 5 shoebox!!!

In Term 1, Year 5 embark upon the learning theme of ‘Water, Water, Everywhere..?’ Through a range of learning experiences, students discover that although 70% of the world is covered in water, only 3% is freshwater - fit for human consumption.
