Year 3 and 5 Have Their Pre-iCamp Residential Meeting with Parents


Last week the parents from Year 3 and Year 5 came in to find out all about the exciting residential their students will go on next term. They were given a talk by the iCamp staff before asking questions to Mr Michael and Mr Dai about the trip. We all look forward to their adventure in the new term.

Educators of the Future Visit the School


Last week saw student educators from Chulalongkorn University visited us. They were shown around the school by Kroo Noke and Kroo Third who were able to answer questions about the school. The students observed classes and worked with our younger students to support the teachers and gain valuable experience of working in a Primary School.

Eco-Beasts Welcome

Last week the Eco Beasts added some fish to the pond in the secret garden. Mr Ewen talked about what they would need to live in the environment and how the eco-system can support them. The students will monitor their progress over the next few weeks and hopefully they will thrive in their new home.

Bangkok FC Entertain and Educate our FS3 Students

Last week the Bangkok FC coaches came to the school to work with our FS3 children. They taught them all sorts of different ball skills, passing and shooting techniques and, most all, had an incredible amount of fun with the students. Thank you all for the efforts with our young students.


Year 3 Enjoy Their Library Time

Year 3 have been enjoying the library space. They get the opportunity to change books, choose different topic books or choose a book for pleasure. The class teacher guides the students in their book choices and also shares books with them. The library is a quiet, calm place where the students can get lost in a book!

Year 6 Students Sell Poppies for Remembrance Day

Over the last few weeks, Year 6 students have been selling poppies for charity. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance and at this time of year we are asked to remember all people who have died as a result of conflict around the world. Well done Year 6s for supporting this good cause.

A Halloween Competition to Get Your Teeth into!

Children absolutely love a little bit of petrifying poetry on Halloween! Will your child be inspired to write, learn and perform a haunting Halloween-themed poem for this competition?

To enter the ‘fang-tastic’ competition, children need to record their original entries and post them in the correct Year Group of the Flipgrid, where they can see and enjoy each other’s work. Here is the presentation that was sent to classes for the children to see.

Here are the entries for this competition from two years ago, which will hopefully inspire your child to enter!
