This morning, the ECC Events Team (Big Boss K. Anusorn, new desk staffer Arm, and yours truly) journeyed to the remote Ban Aonambor School on Phuket’s Cape Panwa for an Open House and Kindergarten graduation ceremony. Although we don’t have a regular English teacher at this particular school, we have held several English camps and other projects here over the past two years or so. I always enjoy visiting Ban Aonambor as everyone from administration on down to the students and their parents always make us feel very welcome. It’s a predominately Muslim area and I love seeing the colorful variety of clothing on display. The food is always quite good as well!
We spent some three hours displaying some of the books we use during in-house lessons at the language school and playing games with groups of kids. I’d brought along the ever-popular fishing game and K. Anusorn provided a large variety of flashcards for quizzing the students. There were times I looked up from what I was doing to see a sea of people trying to cram into our little booth! It was great fun (I always enjoy these types of events) and I only noticed the intense heat when we were packing up to return to Phuket Town.
I only took a few photos (during set-up and slow periods); hopefully, I can get copies of the shots made by the boss. The little Kindergarten kids looked so cute wearing their robes and flowered crowns.
