From Mr Walsh: Head of

From Mr Walsh: Head of Primary Dear parents and carers, Even with the extended mid-term break, October was still a very busy month. The next half term has started with a bang and we’ve had new topics, trips, Hallowe’en and Loy Krathong all happening in the first week! To find out about all of the things happening in Foundation and Primary sections you can visit the class blogs and the school social media pages. GIS has good links with the community. If you’d like to get involved more with the school in any way, please contact the Front Office. Year 2 Plant Project To link their learning about plants with the countrywide commemoration of His Majesty King Rama IX, the Year 2 students planted Indian hemp seeds on the hill at the back of the Primary building. The flowers are now in full yellow bloom, and taller than the children! We have been amazed by how tall they have grown in only 45 days. Mr Walsh Head of Primary headpri@gardenrayong.com

YEAR 6 HAND TO HAND TRIP Year 6 students visited Hand to Hand Foundation in Pattaya on Thursday October 12 as part of our Community Service program. The pupils all "adopted" a Hand to Hand child for the visit and spent the time playing with, talking to and supporting their child doing some art activities or reading. We also sang songs and enjoyed lunch with the Hand to Hand children. In the afternoon, while the Hand to Hand children had a nap, our pupils heard from K.Margaret (the founder) about the important work Hand to Hand does in Pattaya to support families and children in need and heard about the backgrounds of some of the children Hand to Hand supported. Our students were praised by K.Margaret for their support and dedication to the children. The pupils had a great time and many were very sorry to say goodbye to the child they had ‘adopted’ for the visit. In addition to visiting Hand to Hand we also took a substantial donation of rice and donations of about 4500 Thai baht (see below). LENDING A HAND Kind-hearted students have helped a Pattaya charity by donating dozens of bags of rice. Students from Garden International School had a visit from the Hand to Hand charity recently as part of their community service. After learning about the valuable work Hand to Hand does for children and families, students decided to help out. They donated bags of rice over the past month and then Year 6 students delivered them to the charity. Hand to Hand helps underprivileged children and families in the Pattaya area through various projects. 9
