Panyaden Life Skills Class

Panyaden Life Skills class- Y6 and 7 students rice harvesting

Life Skills Class

Our rice plants have thrived despite the October flash floods. Year 6/7 Life Skills class is back to help harvest the crops, a great way to learn first-hand about the life of a rice farmer, to learn practical skills and work as a team. See more photos of the activity here in our school blog gallery and our Facebook page.

Panyaden’s Life Skills programme engages our students in interactive learning such as sustainable living, useful traditional know-how and crafts as well as outdoor survival skills. It also gives students practical opportunities to acquire valuable life skills lessons and essential personal qualities that can be applied to many different areas of their lives. Find out more about the programme on our website’s curriculum page.

Teacher Training At Panyaden

Leading By Example

Teachers and students at english international school in Chiang Mai

Our students’ achievements are dependent not only on their teachers’ skills and knowledge but also on their actions. At Panyaden School, we believe that our teachers should lead by example. This is why we place high priority on regular training and professional development of our teachers. Most of our teachers have been on our in-house training programme for between six and twelve months.
