The young people of The Canadian International School in Singapore visited their friends at PIO (People Improvement Organization) after having spent the previous day helping build a house in Stung Treng. As always the kid at PIO school are happy to see visitors, especially visitors that offer them help and friendship.
The day was very hot and the visitors were obviously not used to this intense heat, as their accompanying teacher told me,
” they are used to learning in controlled air-conditioned classrooms, this will certainly be a good learning experience for them and open their eyes to how difficult it can be for some people to get an education”
After a tour the school and its facilities the kids started to play games, a favourite pastime for all kids and one that seems to overcome boundaries of language and race. One of the Young people took up the task of organizing games and what a great job she did and great time was had by all.The Afternoon ended with the children from PIO giving a display of Apsara dancing for the visitors. The children at PIO always look forward to receiving visitors to their school and the experience always seems to be positive for both visitors and the children of PIO School.
