The College students enjoy their field trip

We all remember school trips from our childhood, wherever we may have been brought up. And in Thai schools today, this tradition continues, especially as recent educational acts have stressed the need for Thai children to experience their culture close up and first hand.

With this in mind, the staff from the College at Asian University organized an instructive and enjoyable social trip for its M.4 and M.5 students, taking in the central plains provinces of Ayutthaya, Suphaburi and Chainat.

Students studying Thai literature, history, geography and Buddhism got to experience their subjects in the real world, outside the formal study atmosphere of their classrooms.

 

Among the sights the students were treated to were the great ruined temples of Ayutthaya, traditional farming techniques in Suphanburi, and one of the Kingdom’s largest hydroelectric dams in Chainat. The students saw for themselves the hard work involved in farming, and tried their hands at planting rice and ploughing with buffaloes.

A weary, but thoroughly satisfied group of students and staff returned home late on Sunday night at the end of their 3 three day tour. All believed that their cultural adventure had been very rewarding, that it had enhanced their understanding of their school subjects, and had motivated them to find out more about their fascinating country.
