Back in November 2015, the class presented us with an unexpected gift; these students raised 15,000 baht to help support our post-secondary students. They organized a number of successful fundraising events including car washes, garage sales and musical presentations.
Since then they hold weekly English tutoring session at Jen’s House, and have held a series of fundraising projects to collect money and food for our Ban Rai dormitory, (read Coleen’s blog about the community garages sale here: (http://www.kleosupportgroup.org/lanna-international-school-community-service-class-of-2015/)
