I am very happy that I had opportunity to experience this activity. This activity was organized and supervised by Regents School teachers. Every week on Mondays we went to Olds people home in Pattaya. Before going to olds people home we had meetings for discussing what things we were going to do. And here we all showed our communicator skills: we should communicate and discus things (such as what kind of games and activities are we going to organize) in order to make our best. Our objective was to make that people happier and make them feel that have very big importance in our lives. We were organizing different games and I felt that they started to become happier. Most of the time we played Bingo game with old people, we had difficulties to plant vegetables in their center and last Monday we have decided to grow vegetables at school. We have a territory where we can grow chili, tomatoes, pumpkin, eggplant etc. .After this activity I understood that we should be caring to people who had been caring to us once before.

During our final visit to olds people home we organized a little concert. On 29th of November we had a trip to their home and this time with Primary Kids who were singing New Year and Christmas songs. Lot of people joined and as far as I understood old people really liked. Students from secondary school, me and my colleagues joined primary kids choir and sang songsHere different talented students sang and danced. Here all we show that how balanced are Regents Students: they all are good in their academic achievements and extracurricular activities.

 

When this activity was finished believe me I wanted to go there every Monday. We always should help old people because they need a care as children. It is true than a human is growing than he starts become childish again to. It is the way that live is! At the end of final visit I saw tears in their eyes and I understood how big importance has the small thing which we did for them.
So lets help them whenever they need, cause the day will come and we will need the help of younger people than us!

What were my goals?

  • Try to develop new skills and techniques in helping people who need it
  • Try to do my best in order to make that people happier
  • Interact with them by playing interesting and fun games
  • Improve my basic Thai and my communication skills

What did I achieve so far?

  • I have seen their accommodations and asked my friends to ask old people about their lifestyle, generally they had good living conditions. We as a group decided to help them to grow vegetables and fruits so that they maintain healthy diet and stay healthy.
  •  I have learnt that even minor help can actually make a big difference, every Monday that we visited there I enjoyed it, as I could see smiles on their faces, people were happy that we came there, that we went there to entertain and help them.
