The tradition of celebrating Wai Kru (Teaher Respect) has been a modernized event since 1941 which was influenced by the spread of Brahmanism from India. Each year the students take time to show respect to their teachers by giving flower arrangements, singing traditional Thai songs and dance performances, all of which have special meaning. I am grateful to teach children in Thailand and experiences like Wai Kru are quite humbling regardless of the amount of years that have accumulated living here. I tell the students from time to time that learning their subject material is only part of their learning cycle. This celebration is more than just being a subject teacher, but a reminder that these children depend on the guidance of adults who spend time with them each day and in most cases for many years. Thank you!

Homework Booklets will be issued in 4 week increments. The first four weeks of school homework mainly covered previous concepts learned in grade 5. The homework booklet covering week 5-8 will be issued 6 June 2016. There will be copious notes written by each subject teacher in a rectangle at the bottom of the page. The rectangle will be clearly labeled “comments”.
Just a reminder about some upcoming activities being held at school for the month of June. Sometimes activities will be on campus while others will be held off campus. Most of the time there will be a reminder, during homeroom, just prior to the activity. However, having the information in advance will assist parents with near future scheduling and cover information when a student may be absent from homeroom.

Just a reminder to be sure to finish all subject homework before beginning exams. All the teachers are aware that some students may not be up to date with all the quarterly assignment deadlines. What’s important is to work as hard as you can and be sure to finish all of which you started.
Best of luck!
