Architects, Project Managers and a New School Building

Many months ago, two American architects generously volunteered to design the new Rahab's House School. After countless emails, phone calls, designs and drafts, they arrived in Cambodia in late October to put the finishing touches on their plans. The week was filled with meetings, walking the land and exploring how best to create a good, safe learning environment for the new building.  It was an exciting week as we caught a glimpse of the new school building and what it will mean for the Svay Pak community.

A Dreamland Field Trip

One of the happiest places for children in Cambodia is Dreamland. It is an amusement park in the heart of the city where there are kiddie rides, a large jungle gym, a fish house and lots of fun games.  Last week we had a team from China visit. They offered to take all our elementary children to Dreamland for a morning of fun.

On Monday our second graders loaded into vans and drove through the city. (Followed on Tuesday and Thursday by our first graders and kindergarteners.)  So many of these precious children had never been to Phnom Penh, so they were quite excited to see Wat Phnom and the king's palace as we made our way to Dreamland. Once we arrived, our students were ecstatic. For the next three hours they ran and played, had a great snack and laughed their way through the morning. It was such joy to bring our students so much happiness.

We are so thankful that our students had this amazing opportunity. Thank you LDi schools!
