Messages from the Heads of School (Week 13 2015)

From Mr. Brian Irving, Head of Secondary

It my pleasure once again to welcome a group of Secondary Parents to school to engage in a presentation on the Changing Teenage Brain where we looked at some of the neuroscience behind why teenagers behave as they do. I shall shortly be making an abridged version of the presentation available, in addition to the key points translated into Thai.
Last week, the Secondary students participated valiantly in our annual Sports Day. Despite the searing heat, the various events were all competed for competitively and this year we had a staff team in the mix whose fortunes were mixed. An excellent event that was enjoyed by all who attended!
On Monday we welcomed Peter Dalglish to school again to talk to the students and staff about his many and varied experiences of giving service to others. As inspirational as usual, Mr Dalglish enthralled the audience and encouraged the students and staff to make a lasting difference to the lives of people much less fortunate than ourselves.

Have a learning filled week.
Brian

From Mrs. Rachel Perkins, Head of Primary

Dear Parent,

It is amazing how time flies when you are having fun. The weeks now seem to be wizzing along to Christmas and I can not believe that we only have three weeks left of this term.
The school is preparing for the festive season and the children are all beginning to rehearse for their Christmas performances. Please check the ‘Important Dates’ section and add all these exciting events to your diary. Another fun event that we are planning is the Early Years Open Afternoon where all the children will have a wonderful, fun filled afternoon and even a special visit from Father Christmas, please tell your friends and family and register your place with the Admissions team. The weekend the school will be at Ploenchit Fair and I hope to see you all there, having fun and hopefully joining us on the water slide. I am sure it will be a great event and a fantastic way to raise money for charity.
Have a great weekend!
with best wishes
Rachel

Visual Arts trip to Bangkok Sculpture Center

This term Year 12 IB pupils have started a new topic on sculpture. To inspire them, we visited the Bangkok Sculpture Center which celebrates sculptural​ art of Thailand.

The collection shows work from the ancient Buddhist period to the rise of the modern era which has been influenced by the history, social issues and transitions of Thailand.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their day and have come back bursting with creative ideas, so come and see their sculpture exhibition next term!

Mehendi Patterns in Early Years

Reception and Nursery have been learning about the festival of Diwali. We were lucky enough to have a professional mehndi artist, Miss Charmi, come into school and paint beautiful patterns on the children’s hands. The children were very patient while waiting for their paint to dry!
