Due to the current travel restrictions around the world, universities are unable to physically visit our campus this year to share information and answer questions. However, some of the universities are making "virtual visits" to the school through various online platforms. As all campus visits will be virtual this year, we have decided to extend the invitations to parents as well.
In order to take advantage of these opportunities, all you need to do is join the meeting link at the times that the virtual visits are scheduled. These visits are scheduled during the Senior Seminar class, which unfortunately means that only the students who have a planning period during that time will be able to attend the live session. All virtual visits will be recorded, so please let me know if you would like to access the recording. Please check your inbox for an email from me that includes the links to all the visits.
If there's a visit that you're interested in attending, make sure you mark it in your calendar! I will be periodically sending out the dates and times of future events. Please stay tuned!

Each week one student is selected to do some extra research about a province of their choice.
Recently, one 4B student chose Phuket and found out some fun facts which they then shared with the class. Who knew Phuket was so famous for crabs?!
This week, another 4B student took us on a deep dive into the Eastern city of Ubon Ratchathani. It is one of the 4 major cities in Isaan. The name means "Royal Lotus City" And, did you know, it's famous for a sand festival?

The 6th grade computer classes are working on a unit to understand the problem solving process. This lesson was a fun introduction to the open-ended, collaborative, and creative problem solving students will be using over the rest of this course. Students designed aluminum foil boats to try to support as many 1 baht coins as possible. Students had two rounds to work on their boats, with the goal of trying to hold more 1 baht coins than they did in round 1. Before testing their boats, the students had the opportunity to present the boats to the class and describe their design process. The aluminum boats problem could easily be substituted out for any number of other problems that require students to define their goals, devise a plan, try a solution, evaluate their results, and then iteratively improve from there.

Our music and our voices are still growing strong in Primary music classes even with the adjustments we have had to make. Singing with masks, limited use of instruments and physical distancing, we can do it all if we work together as a team.

Here are some grade 1 and grade 2 students enjoying music class with Ms. Karin!

The grade 6 students have been enjoying middle school art with Miss Manon. As a first art assignment, the students cut out a picture of themselves in profile and filled up the contour or background with collage materials that said something about them and what they like. They learned to hold and use an Exacto knife, think about composition, and started to find their own style.
