Alumni Update: Talented Talay! - Bangkok Prep

Alumni Update: Talented Talay!

Our notable alumni, Attawee Pornjaiharn, is a smart and young entrepreneur who is the founder of one of Bangkok’s finest dessert shops called @loaflay selling premium donuts. Talay is part of Bangkok Prep Class of 2015.

Talay joined Bangkok Prep in year 8. He said that he was always impressed with Bangkok Prep’s way of teaching and was always eager to learn. He also shares that his most favorite memory with Prep friends was the residential trip to Pranburi. “Whenever I look back on my days at Bangkok Prep, I just remember all the fun I had and how happy I was. And I am sure that a lot of things that happened to me during those times really shaped who I am today”.

As mentioned earlier, our talented alumni is a Founder and Creative Director of LOAFLAY. Loaflay is an online bakery that Talay and his younger sister Yayee (also a Bangkok Prep Alumni) founded. Talay shares with us that he has plans to open a dessert cafe next year. Apart from Loaflay, Talay is also the Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications for Cruff Snack Co., Ltd. where they offer a variety of truffle chips. Talay is also passionate about services for the country where he strongly believes in building the future of Thailand together. Super impressive!

Talay is a very driven person who strives for success. He put in a lot of hard work and effort into starting this bakery business. The entrepreneurial spirit in him allowed him to achieve his goals.

Let’s talk about Loaflay. Loaflay crafted from Talay and Yayee’s love for Japanese culture. From the bakery itself, packaging or service, they make sure that the branding is on point. They have previously collaborated with MachiMachi, a milk tea brand from Taiwan which has 40 branches in 12 countries in creating an Afternoon Tea set. And they also have an ongoing collaboration with Guss Damn Good where they created an ice cream flavor called “Quality Time” together.

And now let’s hear from Talay. He leaves us with a sweet message that “I believe the way you grow up shapes who you are. I am lucky that I got the chance to grow up in Bangkok Prep and met wonderful teachers and friends. Many of my closest friends are from Bangkok Prep. I truly had the best time. I also learnt how to become hardworking and responsible during school days and it helps me in my work life today. I would like to thank Bangkok Prep for giving me the best time of my highschool life. I definitely made the right decision by joining the school.”

 

Thank you Talay for sharing your story with our Bangkok Prep Alumni community. We are super proud to have an alumni like you. A truly inspiring entrepreneur. 💙

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.

Bangkok Prep prides itself on being a distinct international secondary school in Bangkok, prioritizing student needs and providing a stimulating learning environment. 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.
