Nakhon Nayok Staff Retreat 2015

As our final days of inservice came to a close, we spent our remaining workshop days in the the beautiful mountains of Nakhon Nayok. Nakhon Nayok (นครนายก) is one of the central provinces of Thailand, and dates back to the 11th Century Dvaravati Kingdom.

Nakhon Nayok is renowned for its refreshing waterfalls and abundant varieties of fruits, providing a perfect environment to introduce new teachers to the beauty of Thailand.

We stayed in modern bungalows at the Rabiangprai Valley Hotel, near the Sai Thong Reservoir and waterfall.

Hidden Gems Workshop

The Hidden Gems workshop focused on how we can better educate our learners on spiritual and character development through fun and engaging activities. This helps our teachers to think deeper on incorporating meaningful activities. The workshop included activities in which our teachers were the students, so that they could see first-hand the benefits. Each activity ended with reflection and discussions.

Making The PYP Happen

The International Baccalaureate (IB) aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Learn more about the PYP Curriculum Through the IB curriculum, Magic Years International School aims to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. We discussed how these programmes encourage students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. We also discussed the IB learner profile.

The goal of all IB programmes is “to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world”.Making The PYP Happen: A Curriculum Framework For International Primary Education

Nakhon Nayok Rafting

To finish our our staff retreat and 2015 teacher inservice, everyone went rafting. We managed to fit everyone in 3 rafts and then made our way down a winding snake-like river from the Sai Thong Reservoir. Since the water is released from the Khlong Tha Dan Dam, rafting is available all year – even during Thailand 2015 drought.

This was a very fun team building activity, that was filled with a lot of screams and splashing!
