| Community Outreach
Our CRIS Community Service mission is to spread love and goodwill and provide service to not so advantaged children, young people and communities in the Chiang Rai region. Our Community Service elective was set up and is co-ordinated by Secondary Social Studies teacher Jon Danby in August 2014. In the past we have performed in musical therapy concerts for the children at the Special Education Centre, a music and dance concert for local not so advantaged teenagers, partnered in clothes and other items donation drives for hill tribe communities and partnered with the Red Cross in fundraising for international disaster relief, education and awareness of social justice issues and blood donation drives.

The class was invited to join our annual clothes donation and set up a collection bin for old clothes and toys at their school.
