Last Saturday 4th May was a special day at our school. Hydro 6 from Singapore donated an impressive water filtration machine, the first one in Cambodia. Not only does it filter and purify water but also added precious minerals and ozone into the water and turned it alkaline. The result is a healthy, delicious water that the children can and do enjoy. To make the event even more memorable and double the benefits, Hydro6 also donated beautiful water bottles that our children now proudly carry around with them. No more disposable plastic bottles littered everywhere any more! What a relief!
The hand over ceremony went well with parents, friends and VIPs attending. A curry lunch was served to all - so delicious that the Hydro6 representatives from Singapore said it was the most delicious curry they had eaten and next time we have another curry party let them know, they would fly to join in! Wow, what a compliment! Forgot to mention, they also donated 100 wicker chairs for the children. Now there are enough chairs for all of them to sit on. I feel so proud and privileged that our school is the beneficiary of such generosity. Hydro6 embraces our vision. We want the best for our children. They give us the best. They help us get the best for our children. They said it was precisely because of this vision and strive for the best that they helped.
Our fundraiser to send Channeath to a Montessori training is in line with this vision. Why Montessori? Because it's the best approach in teaching the children. I talk from the height of my half a century experience in education in different education systems throughout the world. Two weeks into the campaign we've raised $2090, 7% of the target. It's still a long way. I hope more people will hear our appeal and step in to help us provide the best education to the children. Montessori should not be accessible only to privileged children.
