Herlufsholm Skole recently visited Pattaya Orphanage in Thailand and presented the children with 14 kg of toy collected among the students at the well-known Danish boarding school. The gift was delivered personally by Head Master Klaus Eusebius Jakobsen and six students from the school.
Mr. Jakobsen and the students were in Pattaya on the occasion of the World Conference in the international school organisation Round Square held at Regents School in Pattaya. More than 700 students, teachers and school leaders from around the world participated at the events which was presided over by His Majesty King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie.
Herlufsholm Skole participated in the event for the seceond time since it was last year accepted as a member. Herlufsholm Skole is the only Scandinavian school that is member of Round Square (www.roundsquare.org) which works for increased understanding and co-existence in the World based on the ideal of democracy, internationalism, leadership, environmental awareness, adventure and service.
During the conference, the Head Master and students of Herlufsholm Skole found time to visit Pattaya Orphanage and hand over the toys. According to Mr. Klaus Eusebius Jakobsen, the meeting with the Thai orphans was a touching experience that in a good way created an awareness among the Danish students for the need to help the less privileged children at the Pattaya Orphanage.
