IB CAS students lend a hand at Pattaya charity

IB students from GIS spent a day helping one of our school’s charities by playing with children, making lunch, preparing a wall for painting and creating a vegetable garden.

All the IB Diploma students visited the Hand to Hand Foundation in Pattaya, which cares for children and families from challenging backgrounds.

Before visiting, the students planned the day with a series of activities for the children and also improvement works. This included preparing a garden area and cleaning an outside wall, in preparation for some new paint.

This visit was part of the students’ Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), an integral part of the IB Diploma at GIS that encourages students to develop themselves in non-academic ways. IB students organised the trip themselves, with help from CAS Coordinator Ms Clifton.
