PAWS Bangkok Visit March 2015
PAWS Bangkok visited the high school art room in March 2015. In order to ensure additional student learning, this visit was open to all high school students. Four sessions were run in order to accommodate the interested students. Students learned about animal care and how to assist animals in the community. This visit was the culminating activity in the Graphic Design Charity Box unit. Graphic Design students were very pleased to present PAWS Bangkok director Amy Baron with a considerable donation at the end of her stay.
Since the PAWS visit, my Graphic Design students have held several food sales to raise funds for this worthy cause.
