Lunar New Year 2021 at Secondary - Bangkok Prep

Lunar New Year 2021 at Secondary

First of all, I’d like to wish you all a “Happy New Year of the Ox and all your wishes come true!”

This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our school was unable to have a whole school assembly to celebrate Lunar New Year as it has done in previous years – the Dragon and Lion dances and the Chinese karaoke competition unfortunately had to be cancelled. In order to create a festive atmosphere, the Mandarin Department and the event team decorated the school tree with lanterns made last year and this year, to represent the New Year coming and the old year passing on from generation to generation.

Although we were not able to get together to sing and have fun, we broadcasted a Chinese songs house quiz with help from the wonderful Mr Dally and his charming voice. In the World Languages department, there was also a vote to re-rank of the Chinese zodiac animals.  Students applied their learning to write passages to promote their top zodiac animal in Mandarin, English, Japanese, Thai, French and other languages.

I am confident that we will have a new and energetic Year of the Golden Ox as we see the students participating so enthusiastically and happily to welcome the New Year.             

 

先跟大家拜个晚年“牛年大吉!新春如意!”

虽然今年因为新冠状病毒疫情的影响,学校无法如往年一样热热闹闹的庆祝春节,舞龙舞狮的表演活动及中文歌曲的比赛也都得取消,但正因如此,我们更需要年节的气氛来赶走阴霾,振奋人心。为了营造年节喜气氛围,中文部特意用了去年的灯笼以及今年新做的灯笼来装点校树,代表着迎新送旧,世代传承。虽然大家不能聚在一起唱歌同乐,但是我们透过了学校广播,在 Dally 老师磁性的声中,举办了一场中文歌曲猜谜大赛;在五楼语文部,也进行着一场十二生肖重新排名的投票,学生用中文,英文,日文,泰文,法文等不同语言来为他们心目中的第一名写宣传稿,将学生的学习成果与庆祝活动合而为一。看着学生们这么热烈地参与,开开心心地迎接新的一年,我相信“牛”转乾坤,我们一定会有个全新的充满朝气的金牛年。

Admissions Procedure

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.

Secondary School

Central to this is the pastoral system, where each student is assigned to a tutor group led by a Form Tutor, ensuring personalized care and support. The curriculum evolves to meet students’ changing needs, offering a core curriculum supplemented by option subjects as students mature. Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9) focuses on a broad curriculum adapted from the English National Curriculum, fostering personal growth. In Key Stage 4 (Years 10-11), students choose option subjects alongside a core curriculum, culminating in IGCSE examinations.
