Happy Earth Day 2019 at Panyaden

April 22nd is Earth Day, a great opportunity for Panyaden students, parents and staff to be reminded about what nature gives us.

We celebrated Earth Day 2019 with students and teachers picking up small branches and debris from the storm, showing acceptance of Nature’s temperament and the need for us to take care of the part of Earth we occupy!

At our green school, we believe that connecting to nature when we are young builds the foundation for a lifetime of respect and enjoyment for the earth and the great outdoors.

วันคุ้มครองโลก ตรงกับวันที่ ๒๒ เมษายนของทุกปี ซึ่งถือโอกาสอันดีที่นักเรียน คุณครูและพนักงานชาวปัญญาเด่นจะร่วมกันระลึกถึงสิ่งที่ธรรมชาติสรรค์สร้างให้แก่พวกเรา

เราฉลองวันคุ้มครองโลกปีนี้ ด้วยการเชิญชวนนักเรียนและคุณครูเก็บเศษกิ่งไม้และซากต้นไม้ที่หักโค่นจากลมพายุฤดูร้อนเมื่อวันเสาร์ที่ผ่านมา ซึ่งเหตุการณ์นี้ทำให้พวกเรายิ่งตระหนักและเข้าใจถึงการเปลี่ยนแปลงของธรรมชาติตลอดจนความจำเป็นที่เราต้องดูแลรักษาโลกใบนี้ไว้

ในฐานะโรงเรียนรักษ์ธรรมชาติ เราเชื่อว่าการสัมผัสกับธรรมชาติตั้งแต่เยาว์วัยจะสร้างรากฐานแห่งการเคารพชื่นชมธรรมชาติและการใช้ชีวิตกลางแจ้งให้แก่นักเรียนไปได้ตลอดชีวิต

Natural Environment for Education

Panyaden Video in Huff Post Parents

Panyaden’s bamboo Sports Hall and green campus is showcased in a video (below) on Huff Post Parents. Research shows that studying in a green environment brings significant benefits to children’s intellectual and emotional development. This exposure to nature increases children’s ability to focus, enhances cognitive abilities, supports creativity and problem solving1. This is why all our buildings are made from natural materials like earth and bamboo, creating a natural environment for children to enjoy learning both academic and life skills.

Panyaden Kindergarten Student Tents

As part of our ‘Green Fingers’ topic, Kindergarten 2-3 students learnt about the difference between man-made and natural materials. Students had to work out whether everyday items were man-made or from nature, then used all of the natural materials to make their own tents.

Children enjoying nature

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.

The End Of Summer School 2011

Student from English International School in Chiang Mai

6 May was our last day of Summer School, ‘Love the Earth’. More than 60 students explored and experienced through hands-on learning the key elements of nature and how to care for them.

Spending a week each on earth, air, water, trees, and how to care for the planet, students participated in activities like planting flowers, clay moulding, and kite design and learned about recycling and re-using objects found in daily life. And of course, they made lots of new friends! Enjoy the photos below.
