During a recent Parent Working Group meeting, our Director of Teaching and Learning spoke about the importance of reading aloud to our children, both at home and school. Reading can begin at the age of infancy through looking at pictures, listening to an adult’s voice, and pointing to objects on pages.
This was our first time holding an exhibition booth at the Nichada Secret Garden event, and it turned out to be a great success. It was wonderful seeing our parents and students, and meeting new families as well.
The Secret Garden had a large selection of food, clothing, products, games, and shows. Later in the evening there were beautiful traditional Thai dances every half hour.
We are pleased to announce that we will be offering two new After School Clubs: IWICA Chess and Robotics. These two after school activities provide MYIS with educational tools to help develop our student’s minds. These activities have numerous benefits associated with them which can be translated to any situation in life. Our aim is to use these activities to help improve our student’s concentration, critical thinking, pattern recognition skills and many others.
Our Primary students took a short field trip upstairs to see how their former classroom transformed. It is still a classroom, but this time it is for teachers. Their teacher Ms. Annie arranged for the trip to allow students to be a part of the Magic Years change and growth. The new area is known as the Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL). The Office of Teaching and Learning supports the teaching and learning mission of Magic Years International School.
Thank you parents for attending our Back To School Night (BTSN). We know that Bangkok is not the easiest city to navigate, so for our parents who were not able to attend here is a quick recap and important information that you should discuss with your child’s teaching team.
Main Goals of the Event:
- Establish communication with teacher
- Build relationships with other class parents
- Understand the curriculum and learning spaces
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.
As the summer school came to a close and students were getting ready to begin a new year, our teachers were heading back to school.
During our annual Teacher In-service Week, it is a time for us to meet our new teaching team, build relationships, plan for the next year, and have some fun.
