Exploria and Sports (Remote Learning)

During times of Remote Learning, when we are unable to use the Prem campuses beautiful facilities and all the activities and sports that utilise these facilities. The athletics and activities department have produced this page so the Prem community can have access to resources that our students, parents, teachers and staff can use at home and beyond.

While we are in the period of lockdown due to Covid-19, it is especially hard for our community members to have these enriching activities and sports to keep the mind and body fresh. Below are video’s, links and information on activities, challenges and fitness ideas you can try at home. Try them out! It is important we have that balance in our lives!

Baan Dek Foundation - Art Contest Book 2020

As many of you know our Exploria and CP Service Learning groups have been working with the Baan Dek Foundation (BDF) for many years.
During the previous lockdown in 2020, risk factors that contributed to child abuse were exacerbated. BDF worked closely with parents to increase childrens’ resilience, engaging them in positive mechanisms of self-expression through art.
They have created Art Contest Book (Linked below), which includes images of art created in 2020 by many of the children we support. As Thailand is currently facing a second wave of COVID-19 cases, many schools in Chiang Mai and Bangkok are closed again and our team is currently working hard to provide emergency support to families most in need.
The attached book reflects the voices of the children that drive our work and our collaboration with you. Thank you for your presence and partnership.

Coach Sid's Swing Patterns

Good morning everyone from Coach Sid

Chinda joins us from Green Valley, demonstrating the CHIP , PITCH and a DRIVER swing. Notice closely how the ‘ ball position ‘ is different for each shot. For a chip shot it is towards this right foot. For a pitch it is in the middle and for the driver it is on the left heel. These are very basic fundamentals essentials for good impact and ball flight. When a golfer positions a golf ball on the right foot or in the middle, the tendency will be to hit down on the ball with a descending blow and when a golfer has his/her ball towards the left heel, the tendency will be to hit up on the ball with an ascending blow. Thus a downward or upward strike is entirely influenced by ball position in reference to the width of the Golfers stance. Hope you enjoyed Chinda’s shots. See you on the next video.

Ball Position for Different Shots

K. Nae and the Prem/Traidhos Cooking Academy have created an easy recipe’s for us to try at home. Click the button below for video’s, recipe details and photos.

Khai Pra A-tid or Sun Egg

Hello chefs!! How are you? Today I would like to share an easy recipe for you. 

But do not cook this by yourself, please ask an adult to support you when using the gas stove and hot oil.

This menu called Khai Pra A-tid or Sun Egg. Khai Pra A-tid is very easy and popular. I am sure you can find all ingredients inside your kitchen. 

King Rama 9 used to cook this menu for Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn when she was young. 

He called this Sun egg because if you use the solar telescope to look at the Sun, the sun’s surface looks similar to the grains of rice. 

He also called this menu in French as ”Grand de riz”

Banoffee Pie

Banoffee is an English dessert invented and claimed by Ian Dowding and Nigel Mackenzie, the owner and chef, respectively, of The Hungry Monk Restaurant in Jevington, East Sussex in 1971. The word ”Banoffee or Banoffi” entered the English language and became used to describe any food or product that tastes or smells of both banana and toffee.

Pork on Crispy Toast

“Ka-nom-pang Na Moo” or “Pork on Crispy Toast” is one of the appetisers that is easy to make. It uses simple ingredients that you can find in your kitchen. This menu should be crunchy around the edge and soft in the centre with a slightly salty flavour. Moreover, Chefs!!! Please get the permission of an adult before you do any cooking at home.

Fried Bananas 'Gluay Tord'


Fried Bananas are a popular dessert and snack food in Thailand and throughout Southeast Asia. 

This dish is often known as ‘Goreng Pisang’ in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and surrounding countries. 

Also, we called ‘Gluay Tord’ in Thai. This dish can be served with coconut ice cream, vanilla ice cream works too, or just enjoy them hot from the wok.

Bua Loy

        .                .       

Bua Loy, In the olden days, Thai cooks used roots, leaves and blossoms as natural food colourings in dessert making.

Pandanus leaf is used for green
Butterfly pea blossoms turn it purple
Turmeric for a beautiful and bright yellow.
Or coconut cream as a pure white colour

One of the desserts that display this cleverness of Thai cooks is Bua Loy Sam See. The Thai word for lotus is Bua; Loi is float; sam is three, and see is colour. Thus, the name is translated into three colours floating lotus.
