Upper primary students had great fun making holiday cookies to sell to their friends. A large batch was made and decorated and involved many math concepts such as measuring, counting, proportion, and fractions. The cookies were sold out and pronounced delicious. The monies raised provided, by popular demand, a fish and chips lunch on the…
Rose Marie Academy celebrated International Family Day on December 4, 2020. Parents were invited to participate virtually due to the Covid-19 situation. America, Nepal, England, Russia and the countries of ASEAN were studied by the different classes. Students performed dances and shared information and food from their country. Everyone participated and enjoyed the different cultures.…
England is famous for its Fish and Chips which were traditionally bought wrapped in newspaper and eaten with the fingers. Students in the upper primary class ate vast quantities and declared them ‘yummy’.
An equally enjoyable occasion was breakfasting on toast and marmalade which was also a great success and an energy-giver for the rest of the day.
Upper Primary students learned, in a practical way, about “Trade and Commerce” by forming their own company. They chose a manager, accountant, and sales executives and then advertised to the students in the school that they would be selling home-made cupcakes on Wednesday, October 14, at morning break. The students learned about mass production, gross profit, net profit, and dividends. It is always essential to have a good product and the cupcakes were all sold in 15 minutes. It was an enjoyable experience with a 50 baht dividend for the company shareholders.
Upper Primary students started their study of “Natural Disasters” by looking at the structure of the earth and making models to show the different strata. A practical experiment showing how a volcano erupts using play dough, baking powder, and colored vinegar generated much excitement and called for several repetitions by popular demand.
Paper Recycling The Lower Primary students experimented recycling paper. They followed the simple steps by first tearing used paper into small pieces, then soaking them in water overnight, and finally blending the mixture in a blender with more water. The mixture was poured into a large container and then scooped onto a fine mesh wired…
Ancient Egypt The Upper Primary class has been learning about daily life in Ancient Egypt. The students made Egyptian cakes using authentic stoneground flour sweetened with honey as the Ancient Egyptians did not have sugar. The flour made the cakes taste gritty, which was no good for the teeth, but the cakes had a unique…
Students in the Upper Primary class have started the new school year by studying the systems of the body. The brain is central to all functions and made a fascinating study. Brain hats were made to show the functions of different parts of the brain. Next week the lungs!
Healthy lungs are crucial to our well-being, and students in the upper primary class made working models of the lungs to demonstrate their function. There followed lively discussion as to the ways in which our lungs can be harmed and how to help keep them in good working order.
Child Center students have been participating in eLearning since March 23 since the onset of COVID 19. Although there may have been some reservations about the appropriateness of this way of teaching for young children, we have been amazed at its success. The students, with the support of their parents, adapted quickly to this new world, and teachers followed the normal classroom schedules as closely as possible with necessary adaptations of teaching material, classroom organization, and teaching techniques. The learning curve has been a positive one for both teachers and students, and there has been sound academic progress.
On Thursday February 27, 2020, Rose Marie Academy students staged an all
campus exhibition. The theme for this exhibition is Myths and Legends. Students
were asked to develop a personal response to this theme using a variety of
two and three dimensional materials including recyclables. Senior High students
created large scale images based on Norse Mythology for this event.
