This week was Challenge Week in Secondary, which meant students from Year 7 all the way up to Year 13 participated in a range of residential trips across Thailand. The trips had been designed to create maximum ‘challenge’, meaning that all students were taken outside of their comfort zone and took part in a huge variety of challenges during their time away, developing their leadership skills as well as resilience and teamwork skills. Year 7 spent their Challenge Week in the beautiful Khao Yai National Park, Year 8 in rural Chanthaburi, Years 9 and 10 in mountainous Chiang Rai and Years 11, 12 and 13 spent time in tribal villages also in the Chiang Rai region. All students and staff returned to school on Thursday, tired but full of amazing stories and experiences which they will always remember. The week ended with the King’s Birthday celebrations and it was fantastic to see so many parents joining us on WP to take part. Winter Wonderland is this week and I hope that even more parents will come along and enjoy the festivities the students, staff and PTA have planned. Tickets are available from Khun Trini so please do pick these up from the school office!
