PARENT SCHOOL COMMUNITY MEET UP: STUDENT WELL BEING

Thank you to all who attended this Months Meeting, PSC Meet Up” now every 1st Tuesday* of the month.

This months theme focused on the Well-Being of our children, a topic that has become a fundamental ingredient to successful learning. PREM takes a holistic approach to the well-being and educational experience of our students. Aj. Rachel presented the new Senior Leadership Teams along with their support staff. As part of the schools Professional Development Time” (students late starts), the whole school facility has developed a concept to capture the key areas important to Prem. Here is the infographic that best depicts this concept. As part of the upcoming CIS accreditation visits, three areas require a definition review:

 

Global Citizenship

Intercultural Learning

DEIJ – Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (Anti-Racism)

The revised definitions were discussed and parents were invited to give their input. Prem is considering a new Logo.  Several options were reviewed and an explanation of the design was given. Senior Leadership Team Updates:

  •       Music Department: Excellent take up of individual music lessons – 50% of music lesson trials converted to committed lessons.  

If you would like to know more about the Music Academy and its facilities – feel free to drop in on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Location: Cluster 4. Please email Chris Johnson directly at dirmusic@ptis.ac.th for further information or questions.

  •       Junior School Updates / Addressing areas of previous concern from parents:
  •       Lunchtimes:

50 Minutes for Junior Students – 25 mins of which is in the canteen eating

50 Minutes for Middle School

45 Minutes for High School

All students are encouraged to have some form of physical exercise outside after eating and reducing screen time.

  •       Mother Tongue Languages:

All parents were asked to voice their opinion on whether children should be allowed to speak their Mother Tongue outside of lessons. Since there is a strong focus on Well-Being, it was felt that allowing children to take mental breaks between lessons and giving them the freedom and security to speak in their first language was mentally, emotionally and socially beneficial.
