Year 1 Assembly

Congratulations to the all the Year 1 students, as well as their teachers and teacher assistants for a really good year group assembly last Friday.  It was based on their studies this term about plants, a herd of cows, and a sunflower.  It was full of songs and great acting with everyone have a small speaking part using the microphone very well.

High School Production: “Little Shop of Horrors”

This week we have the actual production of “Little Shop of Horrors,” and it’s looking like it is going to be a fantastic event. There is a real buzz around the High School (as well as the entire school) as the cast go into their final preparations.  The performances are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (May 16, 17 and 18), starting at 4.30 pm in the Drama Studio (which you will not recognize). Tickets are on sale and going quickly so please book early if you do not want to be disappointed.

Idling Engines in the Car park 

The three key stage 2 students who won the poster competition have now had their posters put up around our car park. They are in English and in Thai and it is hoped everyone who uses the car park will read them and take note that we do not want cars running their engines in the car park. This action affects the air quality everyone has to breathe as they make the way out of school in the afternoon and with the modern air conditioners that are in cars as soon as people enter the car and turn on the engine the car rapidly becomes cool so there is no need to have the engine on prior to children and parents getting into the car to go home. I shall be contacting several owners this week regarding the minibuses where the drivers of these vehicles who collect several children do not seem to understand that they should not be leaving their engines on while their vehicles sit in the car park.

I’m sure that if we all follow these guidelines about not running our car engines in the car park, then the atmosphere as everyone leaves school will be a lot healthier for all.  Thank for your help in this area.

Srivikorn Campus Update

There continues to be a huge amount of activity at our new site with over 600 workers and management staff on site every day.  The swimming pool, changing rooms, and offices are gradually rising at the front of the site and the whole area is gradually being cleared. The main practical block in the corner is changing daily, with lots of work going on inside to prepare for the installation of the science laboratory and design technology equipment. The roof has been fitted to this building, and proper materials are being installed to make this central area weather proof

Although we cannot see the work going on inside, workers have now started stripping out the front block (A), and will be installing the music and drama facilities in the coming week and renovating the auditorium which will be a wonderful facility when finished.

I know we are anxiously following the progress of the contractors as obviously it is essential it is finished for the start of our new academic year.

Daffodil Wood Flowers from Our Hearts for H.M. the Late King Bhumibol

Please take a moment to read this important message from our Thai Department:

All the Thai hearts will pour out to pay a final tribute to our beloved His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the royal cremation ceremony on 26th of October. The ceremony will be held at Sanam Luang, the royal cremation ground which is an open field in front of Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand PalaceBangkokThailand.

As a symbol of respect and heartfelt condolences, the Thais usually place wood flowers with incense sticks at the site of the cremation ceremony. The Thai Department would then like to invite parents to join a Thai handicraft workshop called “Crafting Daffodil Wood Flowers – Do it with Your Heart” on Tuesday 23rd and 30th May at 2:45 – 3:45 at Room G9.

Parents interested in joining the workshop may register online via the Moodle system:

We look forward to seeing you at the craft workshop.

Best regards,

Thai Department
