FIRST PARENTS' MEETING FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2020-21

On 1st – 2nd September 2020 the Head of Primary, Mr. Ellis, was delighted to have the opportunity to share with the parents the exciting developments for the Primary School this year. The main area of development this term is our collaboration with Singapore International School of Bangkok (SISB) and the focus on the Singaporean Maths curriculum. This is an excellent means of developing our pupil's thinking skills. Parents were given an insight into how our brains learn and create pathways and the importance of regular daily short practice in strengthening and expanding these pathways. A website was demonstrated and shared with parents for the children to practice at home and record their daily scores in their homework diaries. The parents were then given the opportunity to see how happiness and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) are crucial foundations that allow learning to flourish. This was followed by a presentation by Rajyindee Hospital’s staff over clinic provision at school, safety measures against COVID-19, and other matters of mutual interest.

With the teachers, pupils, and parents working closely together, taking individual and collective responsibility, then we will all be winners with a "can do" attitude opening up the world of opportunity, achievement, and happiness to our pupils.

MISS NADHIRA'S GRADUATION PARTY

On Friday 28 August at 2pm, Bloomsbury's executives welcomed His Excellency Fachry Sulaiman, the Consul General of the Republic of Indonesia in Songkhla, and Madam Evariana Sulaiman, his wife, to celebrate the graduation of their daughter, Miss Siti Nadhira Sulaiman. A number of teachers and secondary students assembled at the Convention Hall to witness Miss Nadhira receive a certificate for successfully completing AS level. This was followed by everyone sampling an Indonesian cuisine consisting of Soto Banjar, noodle soup from Kalimantan, Indonesian fried roll, and a sweet layered cake.

Bloomsbury International School Hatyai congratulates Miss Nadhira once again for being accepted at Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia in the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences. Best wishes as you begin a new adventurous journey.

PRIMARY TEACHERS' TRAINING BY SISB - DAY 2

Today, Bloomsbury Primary teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) continued their Singapore Mathematics and Science Personal Development (PD) with Mr. Hero Lee and Mr. Matthew Liu.

They explored an online platform as a way to support and enhance the Home-school learning connection, which is also extremely useful in the event of distance learning being reimplemented.

SISB also kindly provided Primary teachers and TAs with Singaporean MOE approved resources and books for Primary Mathematics and Science to infuse active learning techniques and methods staff have learned over the course of the weekend PD training.

Teachers and TAs continued to discover the Singapore Science curriculum by discussing typical questions students will tackle and how we can lead them to make learning connections more independently.

Thanks to Mr. Hero and Mr. Matthew for giving us your time this weekend and delivering informative and thorough training.

PRIMARY TEACHERS' TRAINING BY SISB - DAY 1

Today, Bloomsbury Primary teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) have been lucky enough to personal development training from Singapore International School of Bangkok (SISB) ambassadors, Mr. Hero Lee and Mr. Matthew Liu.

Our teachers learned a number of techniques when tackling mathematical operations. They practice these new techniques and are excited to pass these on to our students and incorporate new and efficient problem-solving techniques into the classroom.

The teachers and TAs also explored SISB's Science curriculum and learned how to help our students to become more independent and active in their learning journey.

INSET TRAINING FOR BLOOMSBURY TEACHERS

On the first day of the new term commencing on 17 August 2020, the Acting Principal (Mr Andrew Strubelt) welcomed teachers back to the school after the summer vacation, and outlined the school's developmental directions over the weeks and months ahead.

In the afternoon, the teachers and staff took part in a fire training course by Southern Safety Co. The course covered many important aspects including organisational tactics for the safe evacuation of children, how to safety combat fire and just how quickly fire can spread. Most importantly, the teachers and staff took part in several drills, including how to safely remove and lift people from danger, operate fire extinguishers, and the important roles of a fire evacuation team.

Overall, a very interesting and informative course with excellent opportunities for hands on learning. Bloomsbury would like to thank Southern Safety Co. for their time and expertise today.

Summer Camp 2020 - Graduation Day

Today, the children had a great final day of summer camp. We finished up our paper mache pigs by painting them pink, in arts and crafts. For English, we acted out our story ‘The three little pigs’ by building houses from beds in boarding. We also graduated from the summer course by collecting our certificates and performing the stories to our parents and families. What a busy and fun two weeks!
