9 - 10 January 2013
The Barge welcomed the Early Learning Center’s Year 1 students on 9 - 10 January 2013. For many of the students, the barge served as their first field trip ever! There was plenty of learning, playing and colouring to pass the energy around!
The group spent the day comparing the more developed parts of the Chao Phraya in Bangkok with the less industrialised area of Nonthanburi to see how land-use has changed over time.
Memorable activities for the group included River Soup (where the students learned about some of the pollutants human use can add to the river) and the Chao Phraya River Timeline, where students drew different buildings, people and plants they saw on different parts of the river bank.
