On Dec 6, 2016, Proud from Year 7YH received a certificate from Pol.Gen.Adul Sangsingkeo, Minister of Social Development and Human Security Ministry for representing Thai youth at Children’s International Summer Village. She was with 15 other students who represented their own country at Vestfold, Norway during July.
IB English Language and Literature lessons have been exciting this week with our Y12 cohort sitting their very first Further Oral Activity. In response to the topic ‘Language in a Cultural Context’, the students performed a role play where they had to demonstrate their knowledge of how our culture, gender, age and ethnicity can determine the way we both utilise and understand language. From YouTube videos, speeches, television debates to ‘mockumentaries’, the students engaged their audience with fine theatrical skills, making full use of props and costumes. The week has been highly entertaining and has left Miss Neill and Mr Anderson full of pride that we have such hardworking and talented students.
With a long and busy term coming to an end, and with the holiday season in sight, our Boarding Prefects took the time to organise a Christmas Party for everyone in Boarding. Speaking nicely to our caterers they were lucky to be able to arrange a slightly more traditional Christmas meal, which was followed by some games and even more party food! There was even a visit from Santa, who took time out of his busy December schedule to deliver ‘Secret Santa’ presents to everyone. A fantastic, fun and festive time was had by all. A special thanks to all the prefects for organising the event.
Wishing all students and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you have a lovely holiday and come back refreshed and motivated in January.
