The grade G7 residential trip was adventurous and filled with excitement.

The first day we had to meet up at the Don Mueng airport at 6:00 am, but we actually departed at 8:00 am. Once we have arrived at the Mae Fah Luang airport we were settled off in different vans spending one hour and a half in the car to go to the hotel we were supposed to stay in. We went out to teach students some English. We taught them

We went out to teach students some English. We taught them the basic vocabulary for examples objects inside a house, body parts, fruits, vegetables, etc. We also had to organize games for those children. We after teaching them we played sports together as a class. It was such a great experience getting to interact with those kids. We had free time after we came back, there was not only us at the hotel (it’s like an education centre) we were in, there were 4 different schools- Lanna, Island, St. Andrews and KIS, so we played and interact with those kids from other schools. On the second day, we could have called it the most exhausting day of the residential we’ve been through, we were separated into 2 groups (a and b) and the first group the basics of kayaking and what to do when you capsize. Now this is when all of us got wet in the shivering cold pond water. Then after practicing, we had to kayak in the real river! The water was very shallow (fun

On the second day, we could have called it the most exhausting day of the residential we’ve been through. We were separated into 2 groups (a and b) and the first group the basics of kayaking and what to do when you capsize. Now this is when all of us got wet in the shivering cold pond water. Then after practicing, we had to kayak in the real river! The water was very shallow (fun fact: Mr. Aaron capsized 2 times!). While the first group did kayaking, the second group did construction. They helped build another building for the school, they were carrying kilos and kilos of sand to make the base of the building. When we came back,  class b had to learn how to cook the end product was delicious! That day, most of the people knocked out even before bedtime due to the exhaustion. The third day was our last full day before the Co’21 departs. We did team challenges and a science activity. They were 6 team challenges we had to complete. Every challenge we do involves cooperation and communication. We also did a science experience, we had to find the bugs in the water, and compare it to the chart we have to see the quality of the water. It was pretty adventurous, we had to go through grass and walk up and down hills! Then the other group did

The third day was our last full day before we left. We did team challenges and a science activity. They were 6 team challenges we had to complete. Every challenge we do involved cooperation and communication. We also did a science experience; we had to find the bugs in the water and compare it to the chart we have to see the quality of the water. It was pretty adventurous since we had to go through grass and walk up and down hills! Then the other group did Thai food cooking! This day was our last day at the Mae Kok river resort, so we played and enjoyed the time as much as we could before bedtime.

The last day we arrived at Don-Muang airport in the afternoon. We were on the same flight as St. Andrews so the plane was filled with students. After all the adventures and things we went through, it was one of the best experience we had.The trip was one of the most unforgettable residentials we have been to so far. We created so many valuable memories  with friends and student we taught there
