TAT visit Year 6
On Monday 6th June, Year 6 had a visit from the TAT (Tourism Authority of Thailand) who were interested in viewing students’ progress in Project-Based Learning (PBL).
Year 6’s PBL driving question is ‘How can we promote tourism in Thailand?’ During the term, students worked in groups to find answers to this question. This involved real-life skills such as carrying out research, interviewing, conducting market research, communicating with experts, marketing, conducting surveys, creating apps, videos and websites. After much research, students discovered that the TAT are the experts in tourism here in Thailand. With Khun Noke’s kind assistance (School Director), students’ wrote formal emails to the TAT, asking if they could kindly visit, provide feedback and give advice about their projects. Students were delighted to receive a reply, confirming they could visit.
Khun Noke, Mr Paul, Khun Pornpan (Director, International Advertising Publicity Division - TAT) and Khun Boontarika (Marketing Promotion Officer, International Advertising Publicity Division - TAT) visited each class in Year 6. They talked to students and observed groups creating their own hotels, resorts, tours, apps, theme parks and much more. Their input was received very well by the students and their feedback was invaluable. They were so impressed that they would like to come back and have requested more time so that they can speak to groups in greater depth. An additional staff member from the TAT will accompany them also. We are excited and look forward to welcoming them back to view the finished projects on Monday 20th June.
