Panyaden Social Contribution Day 2017

Panyaden Social Contribution Day 2017: Year 3 and 6 students at Huay Kaew waterfall Chiang Mai

Panyaden students gives back to the Chiang Mai community

In the spirit of giving back to our community during Panyaden’s annual Social Contribution Day on 2 March 2017, Year 3 and 6 students hiked up Huay Kaew Waterfall to clear garbage left behind by picnickers. The cool, clear waters of the waterfall were an added bonus! On the same day, Year 2 and 5 spent a day being big brothers and sisters to the little ones at Viengping Children’s Home drawing fun pictures, making crafts together, and playing games. They enjoyed reading a book aloud and sharing their favourite stories with the children. Our students also brought along books and toys as gifts for their new friends.

Former Students Visit Panyaden

Former students and parents of Panyaden visit our international school in Chiang Mai before leaving for Australia

We were recently visited by the Sandaver family, whose three children graduated from Panyaden, having studied here from the very first day. ”Coming to Panyaden was a blessing,” says dad. ”They all still carry the spirit of the school with them.” He reports that they are all doing very well, academically and socially, particularly excelling in English. They are soon heading off to live in Australia. We will miss you, family Sandaver!

Awihingsa

More on wise habit Awihingsa


Last week, our Prathom students illustrated for us two possible scenarios focusing on Panyaden’s wise habit, Awihingsa (not harming, “อวิหิงสา). This morning the Kung Fu Chef dropped by with a home-made movie featuring more of our students acting out different situations wherein we can practice the habit at school or at home.

First, we see Matthew and his friends stomping on ants for fun. Along comes Oliver asking them to stop. He points out that practicing awihingsa includes not harming insects and other living thing, however small. In the next vignette, we see Sam and his mates hitting Matthew during our school assembly. Some girls try to stop them but they refuse to listen. Another scene shows Hugo intentionally ripping up the picture that Leo was drawing in class. Once again, Oliver comes to the rescue in both cases with awihingsa, reminding us to always be mindful of what we say or do and not to intentionally harm anyone and any living thing. Awihingsa is one of the 12 core virtues our bilingual school teaches to all our Thai and foreign students to help them cultivate practical wise habits that will stand them in good stead in life.

Summer School 2012

Fun with Trees!

Trees play an important part in our lives. They give us paper, wood, fruit and medicine. They beautify our gardens and absorb carbon dioxide from our environment whilst giving off oxygen essential for our survival and good health. And so trees were the main focus on our first day of Summer School at Panyaden whose theme this year is ‘Our Environment, Our Future’.

The day started with icebreaker games, singing and dancing organised by our teachers from Panyaden and Rabbit In The Moon Foundation to welcome our summer school students. After some fun getting-to-know-you games, our students proceeded outdoors for a nature walk around the school campus to learn more about the importance of trees. During the walk, they picked up leaves and seeds dropped from fruit trees. Armed with these treasures, our children went back to the classrooms and created new and existing species of insects with the seeds. They then drew and cut out shapes of animals after which they stuck on colourful leaves. The objective was to let the children experience not only the importance of trees in our environment but to find creative ways of expressing their usefulness and beauty through art and play.

Stay tuned for more blog updates on summer school activities in the coming weeks! If you wish to enrol your child for this summer school, please contact Khun Boy on mobile: 0800 785 115 (English and Thai) or email him at Boy@panyaden.ac.th.

This Week’s New Wise Habits

Panyaden School activity

Being generous, kind and compassionate

Two boys are good friends who enjoy playing football together. Losing can be hard but when one of them loses the game, instead of feeling sad or bitter, he congratulates his friend who, in turn, gracefully accepts without gloating. The losing friend is genuinely happy that his friend had won. This strengthens their friendship. This is kindness and compassion.

A young person is sitting on the bus when an elderly man boards. Without hesitation, the youth gives up his seat to the grateful man. Such a generous act, however small, is never wasted. It enrich both the receiver and the giver.

Using these two examples, ably acted out by Kru Noy and Kru Michel, our Kung Fu Chef explained the 2 wise habits that we shall focus on this week: generosity (‘caga’ จาคะ) and kind and compassionate (‘metta karuna‘, เมตตากรุณา ). Kung Fu Chef wants to emphasize that learning and knowing about good values is a great start but we have to try to put them into practice. So this week, our students will be writing to the Kung Fu Chef with examples of how they have been generous and compassionate.
