We have had a very intense week in Chiang Rai.
We are in the rainy season and this was definitely a rainy week. As a result, we did a lot of cleaning work because our roof is broken and every time it rains, the center resembles a swimming pool. The bad weather caused us to experience many other problems, outside of the center too. Remembering that our main modes of transportation are scooters and bikes, it was almost impossible to go outside without get completely soaked.
On the bright side, the rain gives us a lot of time to spend with each other. This week, we watched movies, took plenty of selfies and had the most exciting conversations with everyone at the center.
The highlight of this week was on Sunday, when I had the opportunity to be fiercely proud of our students Arisa, Kantiya and Darid. We visited their school and I discovered that all three of them received top scholarships for next term.
That is incredible news to us as they are extremely good, hardworking students and it is wonderful to see them rewarded for their efforts. I had the honor of accompanying Arisa onstage to receive her certificate as a student with one of the best averages of the last term.
Our students’ results are as follows:
Arisa ended with an average of 3.64 (out of a maximum of 4);
Kantiya ended with an average of 3.34;
and Darid ended with and average of 3.09.
These extraordinary results confirmed to us that our center’s young students are intelligent and capable of doing anything.
I’m very proud of them and I wish them all the success for the future.
