Roi-Et School for the Blind

12 December, 2017

Today students from Silver Fern International School filled the school van and car with gifts for the students at Roi-Et School for the Blind. Silver Fern Students had over the past three weeks carefully selected and purchased with assistance from their parent’s gifts for each student and were delivered in person today (Tuesday 12th December) and were greatly appreciated. This was a wonderful opportunity for our students through service opportunities to give to others less fortunate than themselves. We hope the gifts given will be a blessing to those who received them.

On December the twelfth we went to give present to Roi Et school for the blind. To start with we made a human chain to Mr Murray’s car. Though there was so many presents we needed to put them in the van as well! Only a few people went to the school. Me, Aki, Tuptim, Alin, Surit, James, Princess K, Three and Shan. We drove in the van to the school. I was nervous that I might stare or point at what there eyes looked like. Thankfully I did not point. Their teacher talked then Mr Murray talked. I did not understand a lot because it was in Thai except for when Mr Murray talked, and no one translated it for me. After everyone had spoken, we handed out the presents. It was lovely seeing them talk about the presents and get excited about what they would get. It was also great to see that there was presents left over. It meant that everyone had bought a present and that everyone cared! – Noah, Year 6
