Clean 4 Green - Clean up walk

Last Sunday the 26th of February the boarders were immersed in a great initiative, ¨Clean 4 Green¨, a cleanup walk around Mae Rim area. Organised by the Student Union and lead by some of our grade 11 boarders Norito, Rasnam and Sebastiano. All the boarding community had the opportunity to contribute towards the improvement of our local community and to make a difference.  

Grade 6, 7 and 8 had an early rise, as they were the first group to begin the activity. In groups of three, we walked around the side of the road and collected as much garbage as our eyes could see. Grade 9 and 10 joined the second group and finished the tasks that were started, we found an area that needed more hands to work and everything was cleared and the trash was all packed.

We collected so much, that all the bags of rubbish filled up two trucks. Good job to everybody that was involved, we all learned valuable lessons from this initiative.

Special thanks to our sponsors, the Four Seasons Resort and the Austrian Consulate who provided support, gloves, great sticks, bags and bottles of water, to cope with the heat.
