Rose Marie Academy organizes a Songkran celebration every year for students, parents, and staff to join in celebrating a most important part of Thai culture. This year the theme was the importance of water in the Thai way of life. Before the event, students researched and wrote about it. Their work was displayed on boards for parents and visitors to appreciate. The event included the important part of this traditional Thai New Year when the students expressed their gratitude to teachers and parents through the impressive water-pouring ceremony. The school also provided opportunities for students to learn to perform Thai dancing which reflected the theme. The students showed their great talents which everyone enjoyed and admired. Traditional games like egg scooping and sand castle building added more fun to the event.
Junior High School and Senior High School – Kanchanaburi, 2018
The Primary and Junior High School students enjoyed a field trip to the National Science, Natural History, and Geological Museum on January 25, 2018. All the students were enthralled with each of the museum’s exhibits, especially the interactive exhibits. The Junior High students were able to follow up areas of scientific interest they had recently studied and produced a poster display of their museum experience.
The Upper Primary students had many questions regarding the exhibits and returned with a greater understanding and appreciation for dinosaurs, electricity, evolution, forces, geology, insects, mathematics, thermodynamics — and much, much more.
The activity center just above the first floor afforded the opportunity for Lower Primary students to use their physical skills in play. Their enjoyment of the trip was captured in pictures and writing that were made into their own books about the field trip. Definitely, we would all want to visit the museums again!
