COVID-19 Samitivej Hospitals Contact Point Information

Dear all,

Samitivej Hospitals has received the information from Ministry of Health regarding COVID-19 and we thought this might be useful for the school community.

Ministry of Public Health recommends that schools and universities in Thailand should not require their students and staff to obtain medical certificate and COVID-19 testing result from clinics or hospitals. This is based on the facts that 1) Viral detection rate in the recently infected patient during the asymptomatic phase is very low, and the negative test result cannot be used to confirm that the patient is not infected with COVID-19 (known as a false negative), and 2) Unnecessary visits may impose the risk of hospital-acquired infection or introducing pathogens to the sick patients at the health care facility.

Department of Disease Control’s Recommendations for schools and universities with students and staff with a history of recent travel to the COVID-19-affected area.

  1. Self-imposed home-isolation for 14 days for students and staff with a history of recent travel to the COVID-19-affected area
  2. Daily health screening including thermal check and inspection of respiratory tract symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, and runny nose
  3. For students and staff under home-isolation, guidelines should include daily report on signs and symptoms, limited exposure to the public or crowded places, limited use of shared items, meals, and public transport. If the students or staff show signs and symptoms of fever or respiratory tract infection, they should prevent disease spreading by wearing a surgical mask and seek medical care or call the DDC Hotline 1422 immediately.
  4. Schools and universities should assign a health education teacher or staff to coordinate with public health government officer in the area
  5. Schools and universities must provide enough places for hand hygiene, including soap and water, and alcohol-based hand rub for students and staff.

These recommendations have been endorsed by the Ministry of Education and have been distributed to schools and universities in the country today.

When choosing Bangkok Prep for your child, you’re welcomed into the school family, ensuring a warm and supportive environment. The admissions process begins with completing a brief enquiry form, followed by an invitation for an introductory visit and tour. Conveniently located on Sukhumvit 77, Bangkok Prep offers both Primary and Secondary campuses. Upon deciding on Bangkok Prep, applicants submit their application form and required documents. Assessment sessions are then scheduled based on the applicant’s year level, ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours. The assessment includes various activities and tests tailored to different age groups. After assessment, the admissions team evaluates the application and notifies the family of the decision within 1-2 weeks. Successful applicants receive a formal offer letter and an invoice for initial fees, including placement, security, and registration fees, which must be paid within the specified timeframe to secure the child’s place.

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. Supervised by native English teachers and Thai-speaking teaching assistants, children immerse in language acquisition through the immersion method, preparing them for the international community. The Early Years program prioritizes outdoor learning environments, valuing them as essential for children’s wellbeing and development. It serves as ideal preparation for the transition into primary school and provides resources for parents on the Foundation Years website.
