First Term Update

We are having a great time here in the English Programme. We are all enjoying the new campus and seem to be all settled in.  The students have been enjoying the weather and all the great activities we've had this first term.  We just had a wonderful Mothers’ Day celebration and EPAMC fun-day. The kids enjoyed all the different activities and it was nice to see so many of the parents and to get to meet with them. It is such a wonderful cultural experience to see the different ways in which holidays are celebrated around the world. It is also great to get some time to see the students with their parents at school. We are very blessed to have so many wonderful students and caring parents. Some new developments:  this month we have broken ground on the new swimming pool area and we hope that it will be completed next term. We have also added two new Thai staff members. We  welcome Teacher A and Teacher Bonrad. We are currently looking for another Thai assistant/librarian. If you would like to apply, please see the recruitment page or come by the school. Many students have been winning awards! Students have been attending swimming competitions, computer competitions in Songkla and Phuket, art competitions in Bangkok and Phuket and also a science competition that was held in Ko Samui.  We are so proud of all our students. Keep up the great work! Please enjoy the photos and let us know what you would like to see on the website. Blessings.

Sports Day July 2011

Srithammarat Sport Day was July 9th and what a great time it was! The students loved preparing and getting ready for their big day. The parade was magnificent as the English Programme won first place for their floats and costumes. Great job English Programme! A special thanks for all the grade 11 and 12 students who organized all the materials and came up with their own ideas and themes. An even bigger THANK YOU to all the Mathayom teachers that worked extra hard and long hours to make it all come together in the end. Also a big thanks to Teacher Lauren, Teacher Jake, and Teacher Emma for dressing up and walking in the parade with the students. You all looked beautiful and did a great job representing the school. The English Programme also did well in the sporting events. This year was our first year being our own team and we finished 2nd over all. So great job Red and White team! Many students won medals and some placed first or second in their races. It was a fun time and we all learned about team work and patience. Great Job. EV2's are coming up next week after the long weekend, so we hope and pray all the students will study and be ready. It's hard to believe this term is already half over. Good luck to everyone. We know our students will do well. As always, please take a look at our gallery to see photos of the sports day and parade.  Thank you for viewing the English Programme website.

Finals for 2010-2011

Well it has been a year to remember. Ups and downs with the sadness of losing one of our teachers. Angelo, we love you and miss you. But, the end is here and we will focus on the positive, as usual. We are so proud of all our students, and happy to say they are all completing their work and most have done great! All of our students have tested and recived high marks and been excepted to their school of choice. Great Job Guys! Almost all our classes are full and we have opened up two new classes in the E.P. and We will be introducing our new English Immersion Programme (a cross between regular and EP) in the new term. We have already filled 6 class in this new program for grades 4-6, and will be offering a mini EIP to grades 7 and 8. We are also gearing up for the move to the new campus. This is so exciting and a good way to show the effort we make with our students to build the best program we can. The move might be a little difficult at first, but being in a new facility with all new computers, sports equipment, science rooms and our own English speaking campus will be GREAT for our program. We can't wait to build more and help more students enjoy and use the English language to develop their studies. Also I have to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the teachers in the English Programme that have made this year such a success.

This is the first (an open) call for employment, with exact job details to be followed toward the end of next month.
