International Literacy Week 2019 - A celebration of World Literacy and the importance of reading for all cultures. Primary and Secondary students have worked during their literacy lessons on the art of creating a story based on images or characteristics of different genres.
Bloomsbury would like to extend a warm welcome to its students, staff, parents and other stakeholders at the inception of our new academic year 2019-20. We have all sorts of exciting developments (academic, professional, recreational, sporting, cultural, social etc) planned - including a comprehensive school events programme - details of which will be announced at our forthcoming Parents' Information Day on 28 August. We look forward to seeing parents there, and we'll be in touch at further length over the details, timings, venues, logistics etc of each planned event individually. The school's management looks forward to working with everyone to make the new academic year vibrant, successful, authentic and enjoyable for all valued members of our school community!
Newly arrived teachers were introduced to students at a dynamic school assembly which marked the first of a series of similar school events scheduled for the new academic year. Assemblies offer invaluable opportunities for the whole school to meet together as a community, to award certificates and prizes, to showcase presentations and performances and to encourage a sense of belonging as a valued individual to a wider organisation: every member of the Bloomsbury community counts, every student, teacher and stakeholder is regarded as significant, and our weekly school assemblies enable key school relationships to be imbued with appreciation, respect, congratulations and applause whenever a particular achievement or success is celebrated.
The Principal, Mr Elliott, welcomed new and returning members of Bloomsbury's team of qualified, experienced, skilled and expert teachers and explained the school's mission, its ethos, its procedures and the emphasis it places on treating all our intercultural community's members (colleagues, students, parents etc) with consideration and respect. He was joined by our Board Chair, Khun Pimjun, who kindly greeted old and recently arrived staff and wished them well both personally and professionally in pursuing their teaching careers at Bloomsbury.
For the past few weeks, Bloomsbury has been remodeling its open grounds to include a basketball court, a football field and a playground. These facilities will be put to good use when the school re-opens for the new academic year on 19th August 2019.
A big thank you to our hard-working maintenance staff and everyone involved!
Bloomsbury International School Hatyai would hereby like to express its warm congratulations to Master Phumrapee Kaewpiboon (currently in Year 7), who has become the reigning, defending and undisputed IMG Callaway World Junior Champion for boys in 11-12 age group.
