Panyaden Reading Programme for Students

Today we start our Panyaden DEAR programme (Drop Everything and Read) for Prathom students. The children read books brought from home, borrowed from the school library or shared by their friends. Regular silent reading periods are known to increase not only students’ language skills but lead to greater academic achievement more broadly.

Welcome Back to Panyaden

DSCF2952 Morning assembly, Day 1 of new school year at Panyaden School Chiang Mai
Head Teacher Kru Dokmai and School Director Kru Neil welcomed new students back to school in this morning’s assembly. They asked old students how they can make their new friends feel welcome. ‘Ask them their name,’ suggested one Prathom 2 (P2) student. ‘Show them around the school’ proposed another from P5. ‘Do exercise with them!’ piped up one 6-year old girl from P1.

New teachers then introduced themselves, followed by some guidelines about where to play and keeping safe on our new climbing frame.

“We are very excited to see you all again and we are looking forward to a great year of learning ahead,” said Kru Neil.
