Science Club Students Begin Fundraising for Haiti's Earthquake Victims
This semester we have many students who have signed up for science club. Science club is a place to do some fun science activities, get tutoring, and work on this years science fair projects. Many of the students here in Thailand have never heard of Haiti until the devastating earthquake that happened recently. When students saw some of the news clips that showed how the children there are being impacted, they were enthusiastic about pitching in to make a difference. Already students have created 2 donation boxes and are working hard to collect money from staff, teachers, and administration. In addition, this Friday students will be involved in a "throw a water balloon at your teacher" drive to collect even more money. Over 10 teachers have volunteered to get wet, including Ms. Tanea, to help raise money to send to Haiti.
Wow! The science club raised 8335 baht to help the people of Haiti. I'm so proud of them!
