Panyaden Kindergarten 1 Art

Learning social-emotional skills through art

Panyaden International School Kindergarten 1 (K1) students create paper facial portraits conveying different emotions and then try to imitate the expressions; a fun way of building empathy and understanding how people use facial expressions to communicate emotions.

Social Contribution by Prathom Students

Prathom social contribution, Panyaden School

Yesterday, students from Prathom 2, 5 and 6 visited Rappaport school in Bor Kaew, Sameong, as part of our annual social contribution initiative. Rappaport is a kindergarten and primary school serving poor hill tribe communities in the hills of Samoeng, Chiang Mai.

The school has very little resources and basic facilities. Our teachers and students created educational activities for the local Anuban students. We had fun presenting 5 learning stations consisting of Art, PE, Music, Science and a puppet show. We also gave donations contributed by our parents, students and staff such as shoes, raincoats, cooking utensils, mats, clothes and money. The children loved all the activities and thanked us enthusiastically at the end of our visit.

Today, our Kindergarten 1 children went on a nature ramble around our school grounds. By closely observing the colour of stems, leaves, flowers and roots, the students learnt to enjoy and love the beauty, science and art of the natural world around them.

End Of Term Student Presentations

Students present work to their parents at Panyaden School Chiang Mai

Panyaden School students gave a marvelous display of their work this term on Sept 27. Every class played music, sang, danced and engaged their parents in their learning. They participated in games with their parents and answered questions to show what they have learnt in Math, Science, Geography, English, Art, History and even physical exercise.

Michel Thibault, Head Teacher, said that this end of term celebration was a wonderful opportunity for the children to share with their parents what they have studied this term.

The students’ bilingual presentations on academic subjects and issues like environmental issues expressed through art, health, recycling and art history, were passionate and confident. It was interesting to see how they cleverly integrated different subjects and used them for further learning; for example, they enacted roles from different cultures in Drama Class as part of their World Tour to learn about the geography, history and life of peoples from different countries.

For many parents and the school, it was wonderful to see how much their children have grown within the year and how much they clearly enjoyed learning. We look forward to the upcoming term!
