Rose Marie Academy joined Nichada Thani in celebrating Halloween on October 31, 2019, at 3 p.m., with the theme: “Halloween Haunted House, Nichada Lost in the Jungle.” Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without trick or treating and not looking like something spooky. So staff members and students of Rose Marie Academy added some excitement to the party by doing face painting and transforming children and others’ faces into Halloween classics. It was indeed a magnificent occasion.

Our Senior High School Introductory Reception was a great opportunity for parents to meet our school director, Khun Rose Marie, school counselor, Khun Wanchai, Teacher Bobby and Teacher Alyson, the high school teachers. Khun Rose Marie and Khun Wanchai began with a warm welcome to parents, both old and new. The teachers then explained how they encourage an environment that is student-centered, where students are guided toward becoming more independent learners who are ultimately responsible for their studies. The Keystone curriculum was discussed and information given as to the requirements for obtaining a Keystone diploma. Later parents were also able to pay a short visit to the Thai, ICT, Art, Music, and P.E. classes in order to observe their children in action. We would very much like to thank the parents for their support in attending.
“Can you believe it, we’re now already into our second week back at school! Where does the time go!? All students in the Senior High School, apparently happy to be back. Everyone appears to have readjusted to academic life and are in the rhythm”.
Rose Marie Academy hosted their Hollywood themed Talent Show on Friday, May 24, 2019. The performers made a grand entrance and hung their very own Star of Fame on the Wall of Fame just like real Hollywood stars. Both the Music and the Art Departments had been preparing for this celebration since early February, creating…
Rose Marie Academy celebrates Songkran festival every year to introduce students to this important part of Thai culture. Students learn the importance of Songkran as Thai traditional new year. They perform water-pouring ceremony to show respect and gratitude to elders and to ask for blessings.
This year, our theme was “A Weave in Time” with emphasis on the beauty of fabrics, a unique aspect of Thai life. All the performances presented came from the collaborative work of the students. They researched, created choreography, and diligently practiced to demonstrate their ability under the guidance of the Thai language teacher, the music teacher, and other organizing committee members.
The event proved to be successful as seen from the smiles, the happiness, and the enjoyment of every participant.
On March 20, 2019, the ribbon was cut for Rose Marie Academy’s 16th annual Blue Planet Exhibition which opened for viewing and will be on display until March 29, 2019. Chatchanod, a senior high school student, did a great job of MCing the event. Child Center students treated all to their cute version of “It’s A Small World After All” Lastly senior high students recited personally selected poems with a connection to our environment.
Students travelled to the Thonburi area for an altogether enlightening science based field trip.
A fond farewell from Anson’s teachers and peers as he has now completed his studies at Rose Marie Academy after spending six years with us! Anson will shortly be attending college in Hong Kong. We wish him the best in all his future endeavors.
Another successful joint field trip under Senior and Junior High Schools’ belt! Setting off early Tuesday morning, we arrived at Santorini Amusement Park before noon, giving students the chance to experience a few adrenalin rushes before lunch. Next was Camel Republic where we had the opportunity to rub shoulders with a few dromedaries and wander around the mock Moorish souk. After an exhausting hour or so, it was time to get to our hotel to check in and relax for a while. Evening time we partook in some rather tasty Indian cuisine which seemed to go down well with all the crew!
The second day saw us at the Go Kart track, quite a thrill, as most students had not experienced this before. All who fancied themselves as a budding Stirling Moss or Jenson Button got to ride with one of our intrepid teachers. Later, a well deserved lunch was had at a beautiful restaurant in an even more beautiful location owned and run by the Royal Thai Air Force. With full stomachs we headed to “For Art’s Sake” a mind blowing 3D art museum where students were able to imagine and photograph themselves in striking situations. Evening time was spent mooching around Hua Hin night market picking up souvenirs.
Our final full day started at Khao Takiab Temple, where the views are spectacular and the monkeys rather cheeky. Stomach’s then steered us to OX, a wonderful seafood restaurant on the Pranburi coast. Next was Rajabhakdi Park where we had a tour around the imposing statues of former Thai monarchs. Finally we spent the afternoon cooling off at Vana Nava, Hua Hin’s finest water park. Students had an amazing time sampling all the thrill a minute rides, another first for many of them!
