Changing Cambodia III
Time flies fast, new experiences, new people…. Right now I’m currently studying in high school. High school life is difficult. During this 2016-2017 I guessed I have change Cambodian more than last year. I learned new thing and experience new things such as working with people in the community. Sharing my knowledge with the community and children are very fun.
What is an amazing experience? Working with all my creative, genius and friendly members of Preventative Health Exploration. This was a totally new experience for me. I think this exploration was so different from the other ones I’ve been in because this exploration was when I could show my knowledge in class, and at the same time, I could try a lot of new things such as snorkeling and scuba diving. In addition, I enjoyed teaching the students about preventative health. At that time, I could see a big difference of presenting to the Juniors and to the students at the community on Koh Rong island. Also, learning about health is very helpful and I like doing it. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge with other young Cambodian students that don’t have the opportunity to us. Working and playing with those kids brought me joy. I respectfully believe that they will pass out the information and knowledge that my team members taught to others, especially their family and neighborhood. It wasn’t just about having fun but also I got to talk with them about the problems they currently face in their daily life and helped shared ideas in order to bring solutions to them.
One of the best experiences in this exploration was exploring coral reefs, seagrass, many biodiversity and other ecosystems. Marine life is one of the major ecosystems on earth and I think everyone deserved to understand about it more. Understanding marine biodiversity is very important for a number of reasons. The importance of marine biodiversity falls into a few categories such as Adaptation, food, habitat, and climate. Adaptation is biodiversity allows the environment to adapt to changing conditions, as has been the case since life was created. Food is a very important commodity that can be provided by our oceans including fishes, invertebrates, and algae. Very few of the world’s fish are utilized commercially and thus, the oceans are a source for unutilized resources. The marine environment supplies many kinds of habitats that support marine life. Marine life depends in some way on the saltwater that is in the sea. A habitat is an ecological or environmental area inhabited by one or more living species.
My third rounds exploration was Game Design. Game design is an exploration that invented the Climate Change board game. The ideas of this board game are to help students in Cambodia to understand more about climate by learning the impact of climate change and implement solutions to it. In the game, we will move to the future which is the year 2500 and the world are faced with a huge problem. That problem is climate change. Climate change causes natural disaster such as tsunamis, droughts, and floods that will cause sickness to a lot of people on in the world, face with starvation and homelessness. You and your other three friends will have to travel back to in time to change history and save our future. You have to study hard, value your education, and build solutions in each province in Cambodia to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, rescue our country and the world from natural disaster caused by climate change. Not just focusing on building the game our exploration also learning in-depth into climate change that our world currently faces. I loved working with the government school students by teaching them about the game and sharing information about climate change also. As what my teammates and I observed while working with the students, none of them knew anything about climate change. So, by playing through this game it helps them to understand deeply about it. I love seeing the students are having fun while playing the game. Even though I can’t share my knowledge to all the government school students but I’m proud of making a small change in Cambodia.
Waste Management 3
The exploration module follows the waste explorations of the previous two rounds, where the students have already determined the lines of business and started to experiment with the concepts relating to these businesses. The focus of the exploration to develop the compost creating the side of the business. We will not only continue our experiments with composting but will also see how possible it is to get community buy-in, by attempting a small-scale operation of the business with households in Phum Champous-Kaek, particularly asking households and businesses to separate their organic waste for us. The final goal of the exploration will be to further refine a previously-started business plan that can be used as a solution for areas of Cambodia that have a lack of sufficient garbage collection.
What will students be able to do/write/create/build?
Create an effective and more complete business plan
Learn the various purposes of a business plan
Plan and conduct community outreach
Conduct experiments with compost that can be used to vet business concepts
Develop business plans and objectives
Conduct experiments on compost yield
Trip to Battambang
People start doing photography (versus taking snaps or selfies) for many reasons. It might be a major life event coming up – new baby, wedding, special birthday – or that overseas trip saved up for over many years. It might be that the capabilities of your phone frustrate you enough to want to get real about photography. However it happens, suddenly you find yourself with an empty bank account and some form of camera gear that you now need to figure out how and where and maybe even, why to use it.
- Recording events and capturing memories
- Have fun
- Learning is good for the brain
- Health and fitness
- Meet new people
- Join a photographic community
- Develop a personal style
- It’s all about the light
So much fun can be had with a camera. You could be out with the family at the beach or a picnic, local sports games, randomly roaming your city streets photographing strangers without them noticing, stalking wildlife, hiking up a mountain for a stunning view, or standing under the stars at 2 a.m. watching the Milky Way slowly move across the heavens. So many opportunities to do new, interesting, and fun things with your camera that you likely may not have otherwise done.
All sorts of things become interesting when they can provide you with material for photographic adventures. Cultural festivals, parades, sports events, a wander along the beach, exploring parts of your city previously undiscovered, architectural details on buildings, intricate details of flowers, people watching, difficulties of photographing wildlife, meeting people who have different interests and hobbies – just for a few ideas. Most people are willing to share their passion with you if you take some time to talk to them. There are endless opportunities for photographic inspiration – even the contents of your fridge or pantry can be fascinating when viewed through a macro lens. All you need to do is make an effort to look.
ISPP International Day
One of the most anticipated events of the year, ISPP’s International Day is a wonderful celebration of the different nationalities and cultures that constitute the ISPP school community. Parents, students, teachers and staff all come together to share and learn about each other’s cultures. Country booths, the Parade of Nations, a number of scheduled performances, food stalls, organized games, and a lucky draw are some of the main highlights. I’ve joined the event with others Liger students and discover more about each country.
Once a year, Liger held an event call Olympic day. The Olympic day is a day when every Liger student and staff doing the different activity that was already set up. There are four teams, each team has to come up a flag design and a name. Those team will compete in each different activity to earn points as much as possible. At the end of the day, there will be the announcement of the winner and give out the trophy.
Beach Clean Up
I was joined in with the juniors and other senior students in the beach clean-up event that were created by our Liger students. Beach clean up event happen in many countries once a year. We were the first beach clean up team in Cambodia. We were divided into the different team, which each team includes two juniors and two senior. All materials such as wastes bag and survey paper were handed into each team, We left school on the early morning of Saturday and head to down to Kep province. With the arrival of volunteers from Koh Seh island joining with our team, we started to collect wastes on the shore. each type of waste was surveyed into different categories of waste. I felt really satisfied spending my day helping to clean up a part Cambodia. My favorite part of the trip was the collaboration from the kids in the community started to help collect the wastes. This shows that to make a change is hard, but most importantly take step little by little and be a role model. Change people perspectives and start sending inspirations to the little one
I go to unusual school
I go to unusual school. My school is named Liger Learning Center (LLC). At Liger, we have 50 students and there are 25 boys and 25 girls. We have essential like classes math, literacy, Khmer and stem. We also have explorations. My current exploration is called “Hidden Voices”. In our exploration, we wanted to preserve Khmer old songs to share with the next generation. To do that we went on a field trip to interview people. We collected all the information and made a podcast. We have six Core Values at Liger they are integrity, optimism, determination, appreciation, stewardship, and ingenuity. We have four houses for the student. Each house has its own house mom that takes care of us. We have our own independence discovery that what we study what we want to learn .We also have expertise that we learn after lunch. After school, we have after school extension for example guitar, football, and robotics. I go to this unusual school because it amazing and wonderful.
