New Kajonkiet campus opens in Phuket
PHUKET: The brand new campus of the Kajonkietsuksa School on Pra Phuket Kaew Road in Kathu is opening to cater for increasing student numbers at the school.
Friday 2 March 2012, 04:23PM
Designed by a Thai architectural firm based in Hat Yai, the new building is airy and cool.
The new facility – which will accommodate the primary school, the swimming pool, a covered futsal field, tennis and basketball courts – will eventually cater for some 2,000 students from the English programmes and the international wing.
Initially all of the Kindergarten section of the school will move there. The spacious multi-level buildings of the new campus will also house the new Kajonkiet International School Phuket (KISP).
Meanwhile, a round shallow swimming pool is already ready for Kindergarten children to cool down in.
The official opening of the new campus by Governor Tri Augkaradacha will be held on Thursday March 8, with open days from March 8-10.
During this time members of the public are invited to see student work exhibitions, academic competitions, a special booth from Shelton College Singapore, and various entertainment. Meanwhile, lessons go on as usual at KISP in the
main school campus on Chao Fa West Rd.
A growing KISP library has books imported from the United Kingdom, popular with both children and parents as they cover teaching subjects as well as fiction to enjoy.
