Outstanding Cambridge Learners Awards Ceremony

021219 hs 2

Congratulations to Pear, Eva, Miu Miu, Kris and Rywin on their Outstanding Cambridge Learners Awards presented at a ceremony on Wednesday last week:

Pear achieved the highest mark in the world (100%) in IGCSE Maths while in Year 10, and Eva, Miu Miu, Kris and Rywin achieved the highest marks in Thailand in German, Economics, Computer Science and (also) Computer Science respectively.

Together with Yu Jin's Highest Mark in the World in Edexcel GCSE Art, Craft and Design, awarded in September, it's been a very good term for awards ceremonies.

Parent/Student/Teacher Meetings

Last week we had two Parent/Student/Teacher Meetings, for Years 9 and 7. I spoke to many parents both days, but, if I did not speak to you, I would be very happy to hear any more feedback about the format, especially from any parents with sons/daughters in both Year 9 and Year 10 who can compare Tuesday's Year 9 Parent/Student/Teacher Meetings with the Year 10 Parent/Student/Teacher Meetings in the Sports Hall the previous week.

While many parents, especially in Year 9, really preferred the calmness when speaking to teachers we know that it is much harder for parents to have an overview, and to quickly jump between queues to see teachers without a queue, in this format than it is in the Sports Hall.

NAE STEAM Festival

At the beginning of November, nine pupils from Year 6 and three from Year 7 were selected to attend the Nord Anglia Regional STEAM festival hosted at Regents Pattaya. You can read all about this event here.

It’s (almost) Christmas!

This week we have the first of our Christmas events, with performances of the KS3 Production, A Christmas Carol, taking place at 1pm and 4pm on Wednesday. There are only a few tickets left for the 4pm performance, and more available for the 1pm performance, on sale for 100 baht from the Accounts Window in the High School Office.

Next week, we end the term with our annual Christmas Fair and Concert, taking place from 2:30pm on Thursday 12th December, and then our End of Term Assemblies on Friday 13th December.

NAE Parent Satisfaction Survey 2019-20

Finally, a reminder to complete the NAE Parent Satisfaction Survey, which was e-mailed out last week, as your feedback helps us to provide the best possible experiences for your son/daughter.

Please note that parents need to complete the survey in one sitting. The survey is designed to capture feedback on a per family basis, but if both parents take the survey this is also fine. 

The views of all of our parents will be used to inform our strategies for continued improvement. The closing date is Friday 31st January 2020.
