A Trip to the National Museum

In November, our entire 3rd grade visited the Phnom Penh National Museum. In preparation for the trip, the students learned about ancient Cambodian history and culture. As they boarded the vans for the adventure, they were eager to see what treasures the museum held.

One of our teachers answers questions about the architecture of the National Museum.

The children and teachers view statues that date back to the 12th century.

Learning more about the ancient kings who ruled Cambodia.

After touring the museum and enjoying a snack at a local park, the students returned to Svay Pak with a greater appreciation of their country and culture.

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.
