Child Center Open House September 3, 2018, was a big success – a great turn out of both parents and grandparents. All were warmly welcomed by our Academic Director Khun Rose Marie Wanchupela and our school counselor Khun Wanchai Chaiyasit. Parents introduced themselves and got to know each other during an intimate coffee morning. We appreciate all the support given by our parents who spoke highly about the Child Center. The event was a great opportunity for all current and new parents to meet with their child’s class teacher as well as Special Subject teachers.

Teacher Colin expressed his gratitude to parents for their support, without which we could not succeed in promoting their children’s learning. He said that he was pleased that we had maintained a good enrollment with nine returning students and three new ones, so we have a balance of seven boys and five girls.
He reminded parents that our first priority was student safety but in JHS we begin to balance caution with the development of independence. The second priority is that every student should feel comfortable in our environment, socially and academically with good relationships with staff and peers and opportunities for success.
We outlined how the JHS curriculum and teaching methodology provided for individual differences in learning ability and that his job was to ensure that level and rate was appropriate to each student’s needs. He showed how this was achievable through interactive online programs such as Khan Academy Math and National Geographic Social Studies, with selected multilevel texts and workbooks for language Arts and Science.

Senior High School teachers, our school director, Khun Rose Marie, and school counselor, Khun Wanchai, welcomed parents to Open House held on Monday, September 3. The teachers 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.
