Let’s celebrate another year of learning at Panyaden! And what a fiesta of music, dance and drama mixed with lots of enthusiasm, laughter (and some nerves) as the students put forward their best to showcase to parents and friends what they have learned during the year and how much they have blossomed. Well done, everyone!

Prathom Celebration of Learning

Panyaden’s primary school students were thrilled to be our teachers on Budding Day. Their hard work and best effort were evident as they engaged parents in Thai, English, PE, Maths, Music, Science and other activities to demonstrate the skills and understanding they have developed throughout the first term. A wonderful experience for all!

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.

Panyaden Recycle Band

We do not always need brand new, state-of-the-art instruments to play music. Panyaden’s students have created their own instruments by recycling used glass bottles, caps, tin cans and others. Here are our Kindergarten 2 students learning about high and low tones using these unconventional devices found around the school.

Fun Celebration of the Year’s Learning

Thump, thump, thump! The booming beat of the traditional Northern Thai sabat chai drum heralded the opening performance of our Blossom Day 2014 concert. K2-3 combined with P3 and P5 to perform the fun and rhythmic Asian and African percussion number that set the tone for the day’s celebration of the year’s learning through song and dance.

The students have taken a lead role in the creation of their performances as well as their stalls in the Blossom Market after the concert. There were lots of colourful costumes, happy music and dances including an adventure story co-written by the P5-6 students with their teachers as well as a musical and Breaking News segment broadcast ‘live’ from Panyaden by P4!

All our students have worked hard to create, rehearse and to take on some new tasks like prop-making, acting, directing as well as writing stories and songs. Today, they stood in front of an appreciative audience made up of their peers, parents and friends who clapped along to the music after each delightful performance. Thank you for an enjoyable day!

Music Performance

Expressive, exquisite and mesmerizing music evoking the sounds and beauty of nature filled the air at Panyaden yesterday afternoon. Our school was happy to host a special one-off performance by award-winning Chinese musician, Wu Na for the Chiang Mai community to enjoy.

Wu Na blends Chinese and western musical disciplines using a Guqin (a seven-stringed ancient Chinese zither) to create an experimental, meditative sound that is her way of communing with nature.

We hope she will be back to perform at our school again!
