International program at Satree Phuket offers skills, morality, attitude and more

It’s 8pm on a Friday night and Mattayom 1 and Year 8 students from Satree Phuket School’s International Program (IP) and International Program Cambridge (IPC) are scurrying to make final adjustments to their extravagant costumes and hairstyles for the ASEAN SMART Camp fashion show. M1 and Year 8 students, along with parent volunteers and teachers are moments away from strutting down the runway at Deevana Plaza in Patong adorned with the traditional costumes of Asean member countries.

In the next room, M2 and Year 9 students are preparing just as diligently for “IP’s Got Talent”, a display that will allow them the opportunity to dance, sing, and perform in front of their peers to build confidence and express a creative side that often is not revealed as readily in the classroom.

Just a few floors above, M3 and Year 10 students are hard at work researching technological advancements and honing their public speaking skills, which will be put to the test during their final group presentations.

The faculty of the International Program at Satree Phuket School aims to challenge students both in and out of the classroom in order to support and develop their potential not only as young learners, but also as young citizens of their community and the world as a whole. With this goal in mind the staff created SMART Camp.

The camp is a three-day student support and development project where M1, M2 and M3 students collaborated to create projects on various topics while focusing on developing their teamwork and English-speaking skills.


Throughout the camp activities groups of students were expected to research an Asean country and then use this knowledge to educate others. The SMART Camp name derives from the values IP teachers aim to instill in their students: Study skills, Morality, Attitude, Responsibility and Technology.

“Asean is all about bringing together the cultures and histories of the community for a better future,” said Cassie Carle, teacher and co-coordinator of Asean Camp. “Our Asean camp was extremely successful in educating our youngest students on what it means to work as a team and to learn from others.”

“It was amazing to see different students step up to promote their team. I believe that they gained valuable knowledge and confidence that will help them be successful during their time in the International Program, as well as in their future plans,” said Sarah Breidenich, IP math teacher.

The International Program at Satree Phuket School would like to thank the students, parents and teachers for their dedication, support and involvement in this year’s SMART Camp. The International Program looks forward to many years of future success as SMART Camp continues to evolve into a flagship activity of our school.
