Every year, there are overnight trips for every grade level. Each of them go to different places. Sixth grade is going to Kanchanaburi, seventh is going to Korat and eight grade is going to Chiang Mai! People who are in ninth grade now and that have been here since sixth grade have said that Chiang- Mai was the best trip they had ever had. There are many fun activities to do there. Some of them are rock climbing, white water rafting, and kayaking. The Eight grade is going to have a chance to get to choose the activities they want to do this week. The reason that they are picking so early is because it takes a lot of preparation and time to arrange it all. The students are going to get to Chiang Mai by train and in total of the four nights of the trip they spend half on the train, one in Prem Tinsulanonda International School and then another night in another place. We get three trains, and there will be about 40 students per section of the train. You can choose who you would like to be near in the train. It’s going to be an awesome trip because you will basically have 4 days off from school away from the city and you get to spend time with your friends and even get a chance to make new ones. The plus’ and minus’ of the trip are that there are that on Monday we will still have school and leave straight after, and then when we get back Friday morning, we get no school for the rest of the day while the rest of the Middle Schoolers will be getting back from their trips early afternoon. One thing that everyone should be aware of is that there are bugs, so you may want to bring a lot of bug repellent. All I know is that everyone is extremely excited for this trip and that it will be a blast!
