As an introduction to this week's Parent Corner, we have Tracy’s letter. She is in Y8 and a former TX student. Tracy wanted to share her feelings about TX with the community
Thank you Tracy for your lovely words and demonstrating how being part of the school has helped you to achieve your goals such as being in the Phuket football competition.
“10 years of joy, 10 years of love and 10 years of success. What a school this has been. From a school with only 40 people, to a school with a lot of nationalities coming together. I hate to see it closing, I really do. I have so many memories over the 10 years that I really couldn't pick which memory was the best. Even if the school will close, all of those memories will never be forgotten.
I wrote this speech to tell how grateful I was to be invited back to the school and to show that I still love this school even though I only left the school 2 years ago.
I was really sad that I couldn't be there because of my football tournament in Phuket but at the same time, this gave a chance to prove how far I have come.
2 words before I end. Peace Out!”
What a Party!
Last Saturday could have been a sad moment, a leaving/farewell party is always a bittersweet event, however it was a morning full of fun and laughter. The party is now part of TX history and will be remembered. It’s also a way to get closure.
The photos and videos speak for themselves:
The party was not meant to be a fundraiser but a moment to spend as a community for the last time and to build one more memory. Therefore, the expectation was simply to limit any loss. The money from the auction is still being donated and will benefit our school Community Partners.
A huge ‘thank you’ to all the parents who were involved in the making and the happening of the party. Once again you did an amazing job!
Thank you to all the teachers and staff members for all the support, for coming and running stalls.
Thank you parents and students for joining the party and making it unforgettable.
Junior Campus Visit
On Monday, a group of parents visited the soon-to-be Junior Campus (currently known as APP). Mr Simon led the tour of the facilities. Parents saw the classrooms, canteen, swimming pool and library giving them a feel for the campus. Thank you Junior Campus team and Mr Simon for taking time to show parents around and answer all their questions.
If you could not come last Monday, don’t worry, there will be another opportunity to visit the campus in January.
Tomorrow will be another exciting moment for the community with the annual Christmas BISzaar.
Don’t miss out on a chance to win a wonderful prize in the raffle, enjoy drinks and food, watch the students, parents and staff performing on stage (the TX Parent Choir will be performing at 11am; do come and support them).
If you can give one hour or more of your time, please consider signing up to help, as a few slots need more volunteers.

Throwback TX: the Vietnamese Morning Coffee
One of the best things of being part of an international school, is that you can get to discover and learn about many different countries. In 2016, our Vietnamese parents treated us with a lovely cultural morning coffee. From learning how to make a traditional Vietnamese coffee, a Vietnamese lesson with useful sentences such as, ‘Could I get a discount?’, to learning about marriages and funerals in Vietnam, the two hours just flew by.

Have a great and fun-filled time at the BISzaar tomorrow.
