On Monday, the whole school came together in the colours of the Cambodian flag to raise funds for Cambodian children.
In the lead up to the fundraiser, the school captains encouraged the school community to pray for the people of Cambodia and for the work of the gospel in the majority Buddhist country.
We enjoyed a sausage sizzle at lunchtime, as well as (for our primary students) some games during Break 1. There was the opportunity to buy bags of (lolly) snakes and frogs—a reminder that in Cambodia, children enjoy eating real snakes and frogs. The school captains have committed to a food challenge of their own: if the staff donate $250 this week, the captains will eat dried crickets during assembly next week!
At assembly, we also watched a video from ex-ICS teachers Timothy and Bec Kime, who are now working at Hope Christian School in Phnom Penh. They shared with the school community a little of what it has been like for them to move to and work in Cambodia.
