Rose Marie Academy High School students welcomed Ms. Chanthachot, Assistant Recruitment Manager, who gave a great insight into Webster University life and study options. Students had the chance to ask relevant questions and were furnished with useful information.
Senior high school students headed by our Art teacher were exposed to original artworks by legendary pop art icon Andy Warhol which are being showcased at River City, Bangkok.
Andy Warhol was the leading artist in pop-art culture and well-recognized for his silkscreen paintings Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962).This private collection of original pieces, all of which he created in the 1960s, gives an alternative outlook towards the artist, representing his more private side that is close to his European roots.
Our students had the opportunity to take photos of themselves with some of the interactive artwork on display and learn a little more about Andy Warhol himself. At the end of the trip students talked about their favorite piece in the exhibition.
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.
Despite this flea market being somewhat smaller than previous years it went off with a bang, Oscar style! Khun Rose Marie and Khun Wanchai kindly graced us with their presence, whereupon they opened the show and were given the “red carpet” treatment. Once the official opening was over eager shoppers from all corners our school found something to spend their money on, wisely or otherwise!!
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.

Bangkok Post Article – Human Resource Watch: The Inclusive Approach
December 4, 2019, was a pleasantly cool day for the wide variety of physical activities offered on sports day. After the official opening by Khun Wanchai and the traditional torch relay, the fun started with everyone – students, staff, and parents joining in a warm-up retro-fitness dance. Teacher Bobby was M.C. for the occasion and besides giving the order of events, cheered and encouraged full participation and good sportsmanship. The students enjoyed the games, carefully selected to allow for age-appropriate skills and interests. The most popular games by far were those in which the parents gamely joined – tug of war, basketball, and soccer.
A great time was had by all, and we look forward to next year’s fun. Thank you to everyone involved.
