UPDATE

The morning of August 17, 2020, saw the roof of the Technical Classroom starting to be rebuilt, four months after Tropical Cyclone Harold decimated Vanuatu. Br Ralph from St Michel's Technical College said,

We are so happy and so thankful to you the AMS team to secure the funding for St. Michel. St. Michel College is the only school that received funding after the cyclone on Santo island. So, the Bishop, priests, students, staff, parents and we brothers are so happy. Thank you so much to everyone that donated and continues to donate to rebuilding St Michel's.

REFLECTIONS FROM BURMESE TEACHERS Yoon Thiri and May Thazin Oo from BMSP explain how teaching in Ranong, Thailand, has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Burmese Migrant Secondary Education Programme (BMSP) – provides an opportunity for 100 Burmese students to receive a 4 year secondary education.

My name is Yoon Thiri and I am one of the Burmese teachers from the Marist Asia Foundation (MAF). I teach English and Social Studies and I have been working at the MAF for five years. I enjoy teaching very much. Normally our school year starts in May but, due to the Covid-19 disease spreading, we had to follow the Thai Government education system and so our school reopened on 1st July, 2020.

Every week on Monday, myself and another colleague or teacher go out on our motorbikes to deliver the books to our students. We have around 25 students to deliver to but there is one student who lives 30 kilometres outside of town. His family comes into Ranong to pick up the workbooks at school. Also, there are students who cannot come back to Ranong because they were visiting family in Phuket and Kawthaung, Myanmar began.

This year though, like so many other things, they were not able to do this due to the COVID19 pandemic. Recognising, that due to the pandemic, it has been even harder for these charities to raise the much needed funds they decided turn to a Cadbury fundraising chocolate drive instead. They offered incentive prizes drawn across the three weeks of the chocolate fundraiser drive with one final super draw and prize, a Wesfield shopping voucher and an Apple Ipad. In true Trinity fashion, their families embraced this fundraiser raising just over $15,000. This money will be directed to various charitable organisations including
