International Day at Hua Hin International School
International Day at Hua Hin International School

The first International Day, held by the Hua Hin International School on World Refugee Day was a fantastic success. Students, staff and parents entering into the spirit of the occasion – especially in a colourful parade of costumes from around the world celebrated the cultural diversity of the international school. Students then took part in a range of workshops to help them understand what it might feel like to be forced to leave your home as a refugee. The stories of the refugees were very moving and students showed real empathy and passion to want to support refugee families. Thanks to the huge efforts and culinary skills of parents, gourmet dishes from around the world were provided to take away and savour. The students’ game stalls added to the atmosphere of a village fete. It was a fun-filled afternoon. Parents had given very generously to the silent auction and HHIT was keen to thank all the sponsors: Black Mountain Water Park, The Sheraton Resort and Spa, The Marriott Resort, The Garden Restaurant, Prime Steakhouse, Jorgen (golf professional), Matt and Hua Hin Swim School, The Palm Bistro Beer and Wine bar, Phamai’s photographic studio, The Hyatt Regency and the Hua Hin Sailing Club The finale to the afternoon was the dancing and music performed by our visitors from the Karen Village. They were delighted with the sales of their products and goods. “We are thrilled that the final amount that we raised for the charity ‘Jungle Aid’ was an incredible 90,000 Baht! The charity was amazed and of course grateful; they will be using these funds to support refugees with basic medical needs, access to clean water and support for the children to have an education. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the community of Hua Hin for their support for HHIS. It has been an incredible first year for us”, Julie Wood, Head Teacher of HHIS said.
