Alumni Update - Ray in Full Swing! - Bangkok Prep

Alumni Update – Ray in Full Swing!

Now a professional golfer, Amarin Kraivixien, graduated from Bangkok Prep back in 2015. He studied History, Business and Geography for his A Levels. Ray highlights that his experience at Bangkok Prep was amazing and that he had wonderful teachers and classmates who made his time in school enjoyable.

Our talented alumni received a full scholarship to play golf at Campbell University in the USA. Ray graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. He said that A Levels helped him prepare for university life as the complexity of it allowed him to become more organised and helped with his time management. 

Straight after graduating University, Ray kick started his career by becoming a full-time professional golfer. Currently, he is playing in Thailand and South East Asia. He also shares that he’s found a new hobby in stock trading in his free time, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, all tournaments have been postponed. He states that trading is similar to golf because “It can frustrate you, but there are plenty of opportunities for you to grab and you can never stop learning”. 

We are so proud to have an over achiever like Ray as our alumni! 

Here’s a message from Ray: 

“I want to thank everyone at Bangkok Prep for all the support as a student and as an athlete. It means so much to me, especially during my last 2 years in school. Bangkok Prep pushed me to put in extra time and effort in to my work, have faith and trust in my decision to pursue golf and school at the same time. I can firmly say that my parents’ decision to put me in this school was one of the best decisions they ever made for me.” 

Thank you Ray for sharing your journey with our Bangkok Prep Alumni community. We wish you all the best in your professional golf career and in everything you do.

Early Years

At Bangkok Prep, the Early Years curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework of England, emphasizing thematic topics and child-led learning for a stimulating and enjoyable school experience. It nurtures learning through play and focuses on developing concepts, skills, and positive attitudes across various areas including personal, social, emotional, communication, language, physical, literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world, and expressive arts and design. The curriculum prioritizes individualized learning, ensuring continuous progress while maintaining confidence and a can-do attitude. Specialist sessions in Thai language and culture, music, library, physical education, and swimming further enhance learning opportunities.
