Introducing some of the schools we support
Wat Tham Wararam School
The Wat Tham Wararam Primary and Secondary School was founded in 1960 and is situated just around the corner of the Elephant Camp. More than 300 children from kindergarten age up to grade nine study in this school and are being educated by 20 teachers. Recently, our Children’s Project made it possible to provide them with new sports equipment and musical instruments, aiming to improve the quality of musical and physical education at the school.
Baan Ya Plong School
Around 150 pupils are attending the Baan Yaa Phlong School, which was founded in the 1950’s. It’s located on the left side of the main road 401, 5 km away from the Elephant Hills resort, when you are heading towards Khao Sok National Park. The pupils, from kindergarten age up to grade six, can enjoy a playground and a library which could only be built by our Children’s Project in co-operation with our partners.
Thankful and happy children
As we are based in Khao Sok, we help the schools nearby our resorts and have a close relationship with them. Every evening we are thrilled to welcome a group of young children to our tented camp (rotating between the schools) to perform some traditional Thai dances for you.
This helps both improving their English skills when communicating with our guests and of course preserving the beautiful tradition of Thai dancing. It also gives the children a little extra income to support their studies, and a chance to be proud of their culture and to interact with tourists from around the world. They are highly keen to introduce themselves in English, present their beautiful dresses and earnestly practiced choreographs and are appreciative and pleased to be part of our evening program – a little happening not to be missed!
