The week ended with our mid term break. The students obviously deserve this break. As they have been following their assignments and diligently handing over the completed task. The students were given assignments for the break as we are trying our best to meet targets to complete more books and improve. As mentioned that i will add a link to why we need to get the students to wear uniform. Without doubt there are many benefits to wearing school uniform. Its probably best to attach a link here to be convinced. Why school uniform is a must.
Parent Teacher Meeting
We had our Parent Teacher Conference on the 8th October. All parents from Primary attended this meeting and some parents from Nursery. Its clearly good for the parents from nursery to attend these type of meetings and hear about the rigors of Primary education. And how serious they need to stay focus on their child’s education and know what are the expectation in Primary. Clearly the meeting was a huge success. We discussed about the students attendance, illnesses and when they should avoid school and the overall progress of the students and the school.
It should be noted that the parents did not raise any serious issues during this meeting. We always encourage parents to attend our PTC. Here at this meeting we will share and update parent of the academic progress of the school in general. Also to hear from them how this can be a better place for their child to pursue their academic excellence. As stake holders in their child’s progress, all PTC’s are a must for all parents. Open meetings like this will make this a better place for students.
I would like to register my appreciation for all the parents attending this meeting. Also at this meeting we share all incidents that happen at the school. This way parents will know what happens around your children and how our policies are formulated with these incidents.As with the 2 other PTCs we share so that they can be better informed.
Students had the opportunity this week to learn how to cook a popular and delicious Thai dish, Som Tam. They got to be chef for an hour and identified all the ingredients that are required to make Som Tam. Students took this opportunity to make their own plate of Som Tam. By placing all the ingredients in a คลิก (kruk) they pounded the ingredients and mixed them together. They got to taste and serve themselves and enjoy the delightful dish that they prepared.
