Exploria and Sports (Remote Learning)

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!

Fitness/Sports/Activity Ideas Summer 2021 (Presentation)

While it is great news that Prem will reopen on June 1 for face-to-face learning, unfortunately due to safety protocols that will be in place our students will not be able to participate in Prem Panthers sports and Exploria activities until the start of the next academic year. In addition, I’m sure that due to the unusual circumstances, many more of us than usual will be spending our summers at home.

Therefore, I have put together this presentation of ideas for sports/activities to take part in around Chiang Mai, fitness activities that can be done at home and various challenges to keep us active from now until we begin term 1, in August 2021.


Activities/Resources Outside of Prem: 2020/21

Even though we are very proud to say that we have a huge range of Exploria
Activities, and Prem Panthers Sports Programmes, we still understand that parents
and students also would like to make use of activities and resources throughout
Chiang Mai.

I am a firm believer in the fact that our children/students should have a balanced
upbringing/education and other activities outside of academics can really help to
achieve this. We have a great range of Activities, and Sports Teams at Prem, but
there are some activities we don’t have and also activities that may be closer to
where you live.

Prem Golf Instructional Video (Chipping)

Hello Prem Golfers from Coach Sid,

I had the privilege of visiting a nearby Golf course today to shoot a ‘ reminder ‘ video for your chipping skills. I remember the great success we had chipping with a small “ y “ condition and setting up with the ball on our right foot. The very famous ‘ bump and run ‘ also helps us instill good fundamentals incorporating solid impact alignments from the very start. Feel free to shoot your own chipping video and send it back to me / A. Lee.

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.
