NAE Senior Leadership Meeting
The NAE SLT conference I attended last weekend focused on the collaboration NAE has with Juillard, MIT and UNICEF. These are all moving forward with more interaction and support for each school. Certainly, Juilliard Music is now well established and certainly improving our own music programme. The introduction of dance this year and drama next year will further develop these areas of our curriculum.
Our STEAM Curriculum is also progressing well with support from the NAE collaboration with MIT. A professor from MIT presented at the conference and indicated how keen MIT was in further developing the relationship with NAE schools.
Finally Apple executives presented about how they viewed the future of education using technology and how they would like to further develop their understanding of what schools require. In the future, this could be another very interesting relationship NAE can leverage our use of cutting edge technology to develop our own learning environment.
In Remembrance of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej
Next Saturday, 13 October, marks two years of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej's passing and various Thai governmental offices will hold a religious ceremony on Friday 12 October as a memorial service for their beloved H.M. the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. On Saturday 13 October, which is King Bhumibol Adulyadej Memorial Day, the Thai government is inviting everyone to wear a yellow shirt in his honour.
Primary School Drop-off Reminder
To help reduce traffic congestion in the local area around our Primary School, we would like to remind you that in the morning Pridi 20 is a drop off zone only.
To speed up the drop off process and keep traffic flowing, we ask that children are ready to exit the vehicles with all their belongings as soon as cars pull up to the entrance. This morning the Klongtan police observed some families stopping to retrieve bags from the boot/trunk of their vehicles and some cars which stopped so the driver could get out and open all of the doors. This caused traffic to back up on Pridi 20 all the way up and onto Sukhumvit 71.
