Do you remember your first day at a new school? Was it terrifying? Exciting? Lonely? Overwhelming? We hope to make joining our school a positive experience with our ‘buddy’ system.
When a new student joins The Regent’s International School, Bangkok they are paired up with a buddy to help them settle in as quickly and easily as possible. Buddies are asked to show the new student to their lessons, pick them up at the end of lessons, spend break time with them and help to explain some of the rules and activities we have in school.
This is an incredibly important role and students are usually selected to be buddies because of their particularly responsible, kind and helpful nature. I would like to thank all of our buddies this term for their hard work and remind that them that they are making a real difference every day to their partner’s experience of their first few days at our school.
Here are some pictures of our new students hard at work already!
