Happy Khmer New Year! New Year, New Look!
Happy Khmer New Year!

Chnam Thmey Sok Sabai!

Our students, teacher and staff celebrated their New Year in school playing traditional Khmer games.

Khmer New Year is the most anticipated holiday of the year. The holiday lasts for three days beginning on New Year's Day, which usually falls on April 13 or 14th. It is also the end of the harvesting season where farmers enjoy the fruits of their labor before the rainy season begins. Many people, if they can, take extra time off and travel long distances to visit their families and make special offerings at the temples.

Pin Pick-up
Soccer Final and Cleanup

Out of the three CCDO football teams, the under 14 girls made it into the grand final of the 2015 Globalteer Football League at Galaxy Sports Stadium in Siem Reap! All three teams played well and it's easy to see students had an amazing time playing football throughout the season. 

The under 14 girls were down 1-0 at half time but managed to score in the second half to make it a 1 -1 game at full time. Crowds gathered around to watch an intense penalty shoot-out which we only just lost.


Soccer Ice-Creams

There were still plenty of smiles from the girls as they got involved in the trash pick-up competition which was organized by CCDO Cambodian staff to clean up the outdoor stadium. Each NGO football team was given 3 trash bags and offered a prize for the most garbage collected. The kids did so well filling up all their bags to the brim, it was too difficult to judge the winner and it was only fair that they all got something. Over 100 ice cream popsicles were given out after the cleanup to all the teams.The cost of this was a mere $30 and it went a long way to help reinforce the important message about keeping a clean environment and that cleanliness is important for health.

Book Report

Book Report

To encourage our students to read, write and speak more English we have introduced the concept of making book reports in Level 3 English classes. The students rise to the challenge and make lovely group reports each Friday.


Introduction of the Student Teacher Conference

Our English students did quite well on their third test (and not one single student failed). After the results were announced, we introduced another new concept - the Student Teacher Conference. The students with lower test results had a meeting with their teachers to discuss the possible obstacles to their learning. Many said they don't have enough time to study as they have to take care of cows, pigs or younger siblings. We can't help with the cows and pigs, but we do wish we could have more preschool classes to help with the sibling care. We run two preschools and they are filled to the brim.

Progress at New School Building...
The roof is almost completed with the tiles in position. The floor tiles are next to be installed with a green beige tile in the classrooms and a non-slip terra-cotta tile in the corridors. We are still looking for funding for the solar panels.
We are on schedule for completion in May.
