Mr. Rudramohan Chen, director of a NHE school program in Taiwan, was invited by an education company to give two workshops in China for elementary school teachers. About 400 people attended. The first workshop was in Donguan. The topic was storytelling, drama and phonics. These topics were new for the teachers at the workshops. Tang explained a bit of philosophy on the layers of the mind and how storytelling helps us connect to the inner parts of the mind, and is so essential to holistic teaching. He also told a lot of stories, graded so as to help in language learning. The second workshop was in Guanzhou. These cities are about two hours drive from Hong Kong airport. The teachers were most interested to see the yoga stories performance.

Sangklaburi, Thailand

Baan Unrak School

In December we had the yearly ‘Don’t litter program’. This is a one day program our school does every year to raise consciousness about the environment. On this day many schools in the area send some of their students to participate in cleaning up litter of the entire Sangklaburi village.

This year I went to the schools ahead of the day with small groups of our students. We first introduced the topic to the other students with song and posters and recycled work from our school and other schools. Then the students were asked to make a drawing each on how to help reduce litter in Sangklaburi. The students were also asked to write a line or two about their feelings towards littering.

The winner drawings would get some prize and also be printed as posters to be hung around the village. This is still in the process as is an environmental booklet to be printed soon. The booklet will include over 100 best drawings of the students and their quotes. The title will be “Children voices on litter­ing.”

I hope this booklet can be sold at book shops in Bangkok besides being distributed to all the schools in the area and that it can bring about more awareness on littering and that each individuals contribution to reduce, reuse, recycle and refuse counts.
