A Celebration of Learning

Panyaden kindergarten students in Chiang Mai celebrate the end of the school term

Every year, Panyaden School sets aside a day to officially celebrate the joy of learning and to mark the end of term. Today our blossoming buds from Nursery and Kindergarten danced, sang and showcased their work and learning to their parents who also joined in the games and activities such as creating art with bubbles and making bugs with modelling clay and talking about their life cycles.

Budding Day for Prathom students will be tomorrow from 8.30am to 12noon. The celebrations will finish off with a bilingual presentation of the primary children’s ‘My Project’, independent learning projects they have spent all term working hard on.

Ongoing projects:

  • “One Leaf at a Time”: After students finish reading a book, they can put a leaf card on the world map (what the story is about/ what happens).
  • “Where in the World”: The world map that students need to put the leaf on. If they put more = they read more. We may give a reward to the winner of the month/the year (who read the most number of books).
