During the summer, Ioana taught English in Koh Samui, Thailand. She spent 2 weeks teaching children from Year 1 to 5 in a school situated in a rural area of the island. She applied through a local company called Bamboo Projects and was accepted to participate in the programme. It was an amazing opportunity, as she experienced the authentic lifestyle of the island, living amongst the locals. Teaching the children was a very fulfilling experience for Ioana, our Deputy Head Girl, but it also came with enlightenment and surprises concerning the contrasts between our educational systems, especially when considering what she is used to. Overall it was the perfect combination of her passion for travelling and her desire to give back to the community. Excellent work, Ioana, we are very proud of you!
