World Cleanup Day, 2018! Huge Success!

World Cleanup Day, September 15th, 2018 was a HUGE success, I would like to personally thank all volunteers; we had students, parents, boarding parents and teachers. Thirty-four volunteers in total! Everyone was working hard to make a difference in the local village community surrounding PREM Tinsulanonda International School, the local people applauded our efforts, which was truly encouraging! Some workmen even stopped their delivery truck to film us and take pictures, it was evident that the local Thai community was proud of our students. This type of sustainable effort has resonating lasting effects! 

Trash pickers ready for action! (34 volunteers + 4 minivans!)

Today all students sacrificed their Saturday afternoon, to join in together with other people across the globe for  World Cleanup Day, September 15th, 2018!

Khun Viroj worked together with transport to map out the area for picking up trash .

Charting our course; this was an extremely well-organized event thanks to a team of dedicated workers!

Students working hard to pick up trash at our first site!

The need for our services became evident to the students immediately; it was great to see this realization in them!

 

Working our way though the village, past the school, towards the local temple.

 

Four minivans in total, each a concerted effort at different trash sites!

 

It was scorching HOT, nevertheless our students persevered!

Indeed, today I witnessed that we are in fact ‘a community that challenges its members  to act as compassionate, knowledgeable and principled global citizens: working together for a sustainable future…’ At PREM school, sustainability is a top priority for us; this is keeping in harmony with our founder Mom Tri’s vision. World Cleanup Day 2018 provided us with an experience to connect our good learning with action! We certainly need more events like this where students, teachers and community can take their learning out into the field and really make a difference; I sincerely look forward to more future efforts. Well done to all! ♻️
