Thai University Fair - Laying Bricks for Our Futures On Monday the 7th of October, KPIS joined several other international schools from around Bangkok to make a visit down to the Thai Universities Fair hosted by Ruamrudee International School. Our juniors and seniors took this opportunity to interact with 48 different faculties representing 17 universities from Thailand. For the juniors, it was definitely a chance to broaden their horizons and learn about all the possibilities that are out there. From learning about innovative areas of study such as agricultural engineering to discovering exchange programs abroad our Grade 11s used their time at RIS very positively. Our seniors, on the other hand, got down to more specific admissions business. They got a chance to discuss admission requirements, required prerequisite courses, application…

Letters: High School goes to the beach!

Letters
This October, the high school headed to Samae San Island in the Sattahip District for their annual high school camp. The island, beach, and resort are all close to the Thai Naval base. Camp included the help of the environmentally-conscious group, Thaidos Three Barges, and visits to the turtle conservatory and natural museum were included. The highlight of camp was the second day, which was spent on and around the beaches of Samae San. Evenings included some music, quiz night, movie night, and a pretty cool thunderstorm. The students were outstandingly behaved and we are grateful for the time the teachers dedicated to the experience. Overall, it was a great experience! This is what some of the high school said about the trip... "I loved their passion for the environment…

Letters: From the Principal

Letters
Attendance and punctuality As we launch into a new school year, it is important to ensure we all settle back into a routine that allows us to maximize our learning and maintain our health. We are already battling the first round of viruses, coughs, and sore throats for the year, so the importance of healthy meals and a full night's rest are upon us. These lessons must be taught and reinforced by home and school in partnership to ensure our students are reaching their potential. These lessons about health and reaching our potential overlap with the need for school attendance and punctuality. We recognize that the concept of timeliness can vary from culture to culture and that one of the appealing aspects of vacationing in Thailand is that time can…

Letters: Sleep Friendly Bedrooms

Letters
In February of 2018, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommended that children aged 6–12 years old should regularly sleep 9–12 hours per day and teenagers aged 13–18 years old should sleep 8–10 hours per day. Students who get enough sleep may have fewer attention and behavior problems. With technology, traffic, social lifestyles, and other activities going on getting enough sleep can be a problem.  When speaking to middle and high school students in the morning as they enter the school, some students say they went to bed between 11:00 pm – 1 am.  If your child is one of them, then they are not getting enough sleep. Is the environment you are providing at home encouraging sleep? The National Sleep Foundation has 6 easy ways to make sure your bedroom is designed for your child to get the rest…
