Post-show Celebrations at Panyaden Blossom Market

Panyaden parents mingle with the performers and teachers at our Blossom Market after the fabulous show put up by our students. There were lots of food, drink, music and a wide range of handicrafts made by the students themselves. Visitors made magic crystal bracelets and their own herbal tea, tasted delicious Piggy Nutella and bought environmentally-friendly beeswax food wraps. All donations and net proceeds from market sales go to this year’s chosen charity, Always Reading Caravan in Phrao. Thank you all for your hard work and generosity!

Panyaden Celebrates Learning

Panyaden Blossom Day 2017

It has been another great year of learning at Panyaden! Blossom Day is a time for the whole school community to come together and celebrate all that our students have learned. We had a rich and varied lineup of music, dance and drama for parents and friends this year, from a musical version of the Three Little Pigs to a live debate on science and beliefs. Students have been involved at every level, whether painting backdrops, singing in a choir or writing scripts, making Blossom Day a truly student-led experience. Rehearsals have been demanding at times, but we see this as a great opportunity for students to learn that effort, hard work and practice pay off in the end.

We thank parents and teachers for all their hard work behind the scenes, practising lines and making costumes and keeping students motivated. Standing in front of a lot of people is not easy, of course, but we trust that the time and effort we have all put in will result in another truly memorable Blossom Day at Panyaden.

Cultivating Responsibility at Panyaden

Who makes the rules? We do! By fully involving Panyaden International School students in making agreements, whether in the classroom, at the swimming pool or at home, we encourage a sense of personal responsibility towards them.

Panyaden Graduate Visits

Panyaden Graduate Success!

We were delighted on Friday at the visit of Year 7 graduate Jimmy and his mum who was happy to answer the question many parents ask: how does Panyaden prepare their child for high school? “When I took Jimmy to his new school, the admissions officer told me that if Jimmy came from Panyaden, they would take him for sure. They didn’t even need an entrance exam!

“He has since scored really high marks in English, science and maths and this is a boy who came to Panyaden only 3 years ago with no English at all. I was so worried when we started at Panyaden because he was shy and had no friends but I am so grateful that Panyaden gave him a chance. It completely changed him. In just one term he had good friends and his enthusiasm for learning and his confidence grew and grew. He is now a confident boy who thinks for himself and knows how to solve problems. He has got great academic grades in his new school, but Panyaden taught him so much more than that.” Jimmy is attending the international programme at a Thai bilingual school. He told us he misses Panyaden very much. And we miss him too!
