David Williams, our Director of Boarding, writes: “As with all weeks in boarding, this has been a busy one! Many activities, such as football, rounders, Thai cooking, a music “jam session” and even games of bingo, have been on offer this week. We have also given out the sign-up for Sport and Spa for our new, mid-week evening programme: we have classes for badminton, tennis, squash, taekwondo, muai Thai and yoga on offer every Wednesday. On Friday, we also had a night out down to Pure Place, followed by an all-boarder trip to Siam Ocean World and Siam Paragon. If you wish to be kept up to date with everything in boarding, don’t forget to add our official Line Page by searching for @bistbo. We have also sent out our list of weekend trips for this term. We have lots of plans for the rest of the year, but if anyone has any suggestions for a good weekend trip, please let us know so that we can add it into the programme. I would also like to welcome our new Assistant Head of Boys’ Boarding, Kevin Edward (firstname.lastname@example.org). Kevin is a native Thai speaker and has already settled in well to the routines here and is getting to know the boys. Next week, we have more Thai cooking, evening drama, music practice, football and indoor games – all being provided by the teaching staff in the evenings – as well as our usual bike rides, games and time to relax. Sign-up for Paintball for this weekend will also be out Monday, and the students will have to sign up for this quickly to ensure a place.
