This week we have had a visit from Second Chance Bangkok, our Year 5 community partner. Year 5 did an excellent job of organising the Swap Shop event during the school Eco Week this year. After the event, they collected up all the left over goods, ready to donate to Second Chance. On Monday 25th June, the Second Chance team visited St.Stephen's to collect this donation. They also visited the Year 5 class to thank them for their hard work. They spoke to the students about the valuable work they do in the Klong Toey slum. You can find out more about their work here: http://www.scbkk.org/
During the Eco Week, the Swap Shop, Primary Craft Stall and Year 9 games raised a total of 11,536thb for Second Chance which was added to a 20,000thb donation from the 2018 Walkathon event. We therefore donated a total of 31,536thb to Second Chance, in addition to the goods that will be used for their upcycling shop. A huge thank you to the Year 5 teachers and students and also the students and staff involved in the Primary Craft Stall and Secondary board games for enabling this community service to happen.
