From time to time CFP schools are visited by international students. In 2012, Banmaemi School welcomed Japanese students who currently live in Bangkok, Thailand. SAWAN, the Japanese children’s group, and Thai children attended an environmental camp held at OISCA Lampoon Center. Thai children and Japanese children participated in tree planting activities together. Although there was a language barrier, the students were still able to have a fruitful experience.
Through this intercultural exchange, the Thai children realized that environmental conservation is relatable to not only their environment but also for the whole planet earth. The Japanese children, who although live in Thailand are often confined by their exclusive community, were able to make friends other students and learn about their local neighbors. Both groups of children received a valuable, heartfelt experience that they will always remember.
