Graduation of the Class of 2017
Our graduating Year 13 class, the Class of 2017, finished their final external examinations last week. When they entered year 12, each student selected a range of courses across 6 areas of study that make up the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. These individual courses each have a set of external examinations the students sit under strict examination conditions. They will have completed their Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) programme, handed in their extended essay, and finished their theory of knowledge (TOK) course. The Graduation Celebration, to mark this memorable occasion for this group of wonderful young adults making up the Class of 2017, will take place on Saturday 27th May from 4.30pm onwards at the Marriott Hotel, Sukhumvit 57.
I very much look forward to the Class of 2017 Graduation Celebration. This will be a wonderful way to say goodbye to a group of young adults who have been a leading group for our school for the past two years. The results of the Class of 2017 senior studies will come out at the beginning of July and I know everyone will be eagerly awaiting their individual scores and achievements. Many of their University offers will be based on how well they perform in these exams, so they have worked very hard in this final period.
High School Production: Little Shop of Horrors
This was a truly fantastic, highly professional production which was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. From the props and back drops through to the music, singing, dancing and acting it was an excellent visual display which really shows the high quality that our young performers can work at.
There was a real buzz around the whole school over the last week as many people got the chance to few the final performances of what has been a achievement through hard work and effort to reach this high standard. A special thank you and congratulations to all who were involved, led by Mr. Jason and so well supported by our music and art staff.
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 idling their engines in the car park. This action affects the quality of air that everyone has to breathe as they make the way out of school in the afternoon. With modern car air conditioners, 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 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.
