Children living at the Father Ray Children’s Home in Pattaya, Thailand, always look forward to the arrival of the students from Sacred Heart School in south London. (Independent Catholic News) Every two years the school organises a trip, and the students raise the money to pay for flights and accommodation through donations, sponsored walks and selling handicrafts. The twenty four students, accompanied by nine teaching staff, use the money that is left over to purchase much needed equipment for the Father Ray Foundation projects, but the first day is always a fun day. As soon as the students reach the Home the south London boys go for a lesson in Thailand’s national sport, Muay Thai boxing. This year one of the teachers decided to join her male students and she impressed everyone with her ability and strength. FULL STORYThailand: friendly fight in Pattaya (Independent Catholic News)
