Our School Day
Each day our students have a balance of learning both inside and outside of the classroom and breaks for snack and lunch. Mornings are focussed on literacy and numeracy, with afternoons focused on projects which integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths (STEM), Geography, History, ICT, Art, Music, PE, Swimming, and Mandarin.
The school uniform is an important part of our identity and community, we also want to ensure that our students are comfortable and ready to learn. In 2017/18 academic year, out of respect for the passing of His Majesty the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej our uniform (polo and shorts) is black.
The future design of our uniform will be developed by the work of our students during one of their STEM projects. Uniforms can be purchased from the school admin office.
Community life is important for our school and we want for our students to actively participate and contribute to our school community. This involvement allows the development of skills, talents and collaborative successes from participation.
There are a number of ways we encourage community involvement. Through our house system, the student council and voluntary / community projects and also sharing our learning with parents and students from Pensmith Thai School.
When students and staff join our school they are placed into one of 4 house teams. There are various individual and team competitions that students participate in throughout the year where they represent their house – great opportunities for collaboration, communication, and leadership.
The Student Council exists for the student body. This means Council members listen to student voices and take actions to develop the school and improve the convenience of school life. Therefore, our students have the responsibility and right to raise issues and inform their class representatives of matters for discussion during their Student Council meetings. Moreover, through students being involved with the Student Council, they will strengthen their leadership skills and identity as representatives of the School and their community.
Extra Curricula Activities
We aim to provide a diverse range of Extra Curricula Activities to meet the needs and interests of the students. Students from Year 1 are encouraged to participate in these activities to experiment, develop new skills and interests.
Examples of clubs include :
Football, Swimming, Engineering, Maths, Science, Programming, Movie Making and Editing, Robotics, Golf, Young Inventor, Cooking.
School Trips and Residentials
All students at the school have the opportunity to participate in school trips. These trips are an integral part of students learning. In early years and primary school, children go on a variety of trips in and around Bangkok. These typically take place during the normal school day. In secondary school, students may have residential trips staying away from home for one or more nights. The objectives of these trips and residential are designed to support and enhance the curriculum and development of 21st Century skills.
