BISP students among ‘Top in Thailand’

Six students from British Interna­tional School, Phuket (BISP) have made their school proud as they have managed to achieve the high­est country honour in their recent Cam­bridge examinations.


Monday 4 November 2019, 02:00PM

Irawadee Thawornbut, Victor Porch­er, Levi Hawk, Ilyan Shrestha, Bhuvan Kumar and Karin Mathilda Gustafsson from Year 11 made the list of Outstand­ing Achievers in Thailand 2019 for Cambridge IGCSE subjects.

“These are well-deserved achieve­ments, to say the least. Students who graduate from our school regularly move on to well-known universities around the world and in the last four years attended 129 different institu­tions in 22 countries,” commented Secondary Principal Simon Meredith. “I would like to extend my thanks to the teachers involved for their dedica­tion and hard work and wish these students success moving forward.”

One of these students achieved Top in Thailand for two subjects, meaning BISP has won awards in one-fifth of the mainstream IGCSE subjects offered in Thailand for 2019. The official ceremo­ny to honour the students will be held in Bangkok later this month.

Meanwhile, BISP’s top set math­ematics students took their IGCSE Cambridge mathematics examinations one year early, and the class achieved some outstanding results.

Twelve students took the exams and received 8 A*s and 4 As. The overall class average was an incredible 93%, and the top two students, Wongsathorn Tonkultorn and Tatsan Kantasit, scored 99.5% and 98.5% respectively.

Head of Mathematics Richard Griffin said, “This is the first time our acceler­ated class has taken the examination in May, a whole year early, and produced our best ever results. Well done to the class; their hard work paid off!”

The class is now continuing to study even more demanding mathematics by following the Cambridge Additional Mathematics syllabus. This will enable them to study mathematics at the high­est IB level in Year 12 and 13.

In addition to this, a number of students also received their IGCSE cer­tificates in Chinese, French, Spanish and German with outstanding results of all As and A*s. These students took exams one year early and, in some cas­es, even two years early. Some of them will also take a further modern foreign language (MFL) IGCSE this year.

The girls do not have a choice in garment is my point. They are forced to wear what was developed essentially to give males quick access to sex in way of assault. Let the girls - and boys- decide what they wish to wear; shorts, pants  skirts.. or burquas.

Just let girls and boys grow up with experience each other the natural way they want to discover each other. Including sexuality wise. All over the world the same. Teen pregnancy percentage in Thailand shows that goes well. However, a bit more sexual education in schools about not becoming pregnant would do.

Yes Ms.Sweet. Those girls should wear some"burqa" style. And they should stop mixed school-classes.Those s.precocious girls only distract innocent young boys from learning.

I think those uniforms are designed to look so damn goofy and ridiculous that the thought of any of their genitalia just skips by unnoticed.

You really do live in a parallel universe don't you Christy?

Why are teenage girls mandated to wear skirts? So  as to provide the illusion (italics) of quick access to their genitalia?
