Mr. Bevin is your “go to” person for all of your tertiary education concerns. We’ll pick up with the Y13s from whence we finished Y12….. and begin their formal university process. Many visitors from Colleges and Universities will recruit at St Andrews and Bangkok. Stay tuned for those announcements. Y12s will begin their process in February.
Counselling at St Andrews International School Bangkok provides students with a safe place for them to communicate and share their worries or concerns. We also maintain relationships with parents and aid them in supporting their child. We aim to help each student cope with their everyday challenges in the best way possible, whilst helping them do well in school.
The counselling team will also be hosting and delivering parent workshops and presentations throughout the academic year, please keep an eye out on the newsletter and social media channels concerning upcoming events.
If you have any concerns or want to drop by and have a chat with one of us, please feel free to email us at anytime.
We wish you and your child a great year ahead!
