On the 16th of June, the sixth form students of the International School of Samui set off on a perilous journey. They set out to cycle over three hundred and fifty kilometres from Suratthani to Phuket, with a goal of raising both awareness and funds for the Special Needs School in Bo Phut.
“We set out to challenge ourselves both physically and mentally, so we thought, why not do it for charity as well”, Mr. Oliver Edmonds, the head of sixth form at the school, explained. The expedition is part of the school’s International award programme, something that the students take great pride in.
So they set off. The route covered mountain ranges, rivers and dense tropical forests. There were many hardships, as some of the students commented, but they pushed on nonetheless, keeping their admirable cause in mind throughout the journey.
They arrived at the Anantara Villas in Phuket on the 23rd of June, where they were graciously given complimentary villas for their valiant efforts.
The Special Needs School has recently been donated a plot of land, which it intends to build a new school site on. The sixth form intended to raise funds to help supplement the cost of this endeavour. ISS and the Special Needs School have worked together in the past, with the students previously starting the Band Together Project as another fundraising endeavour.
So far an astonishing 90,000has been raised, and the sixth form are still accepting donations from the public. Any who are interested on donating to their worthy cause should contact Mr. Oliver Edmonds, the head of sixth form at ISS.Stay updated with Samui Times by following us on Facebook.
