Every year the school puts together Christmas boxes for the orphans at the SOS Children’s Village Phuket. This is organised by Y12 and 13 students during a CAS activity throughout the first term.

Each form takes responsibility for a number of boxes and fills them with toys, stationary, cosmetics and of course sweets! We made a record number of boxes this year and 120 children ranging in age from 6 months to 18 years will be very happy on Christmas Eve when they get to open them.

Boarding students also put together a further six boxes to send up to an orphanage in Chang Mai which we had been asked to help also.

In addition, this year, Y12 and 13 made 32 Christmas boxes to take to Phuket Home for the Elderly. We took these over to them on Tuesday and four of our wonderful Thai musicians played for them as they opened their boxes. They loved hearing live Thai music and the girls received many requests to keep playing.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the students, parents and tutors who helped to give 158 Christmas boxes to our community this year. Well done!
