Satree Phuket School students attend Cambridge School Summit

In early September, students and staff from Satree Phuket School’s Cambridge Program travelled to Bangkok to participate in the Thailand Education Hub Cambridge School Summit 2016. This year’s summit was hosted at Yothinburana School’s beautiful new Bangkok campus, with a total of four schools from across Thailand attending the event, including Narinkun School and Phichairattanakhan School.

Following the opening ceremony performances, students and guests heard a speech from Mr Teerakiat Jareonsettasin, Thailand’s Deputy Minister of Education. Throughout the day students participated in a number of activities such as traditional Thai dances, academic showcases, a student speak-out forum and team sporting events.

The first day of the summit wrapped up with an evening dinner party, with everyone in attendance taking the chance to pay their respect to two upcoming retirees, Mr Nattawat Pathathairattanasarani, Vice Director of Satree Phuket School and Mr Manote Wangthakul, Vice Director of Yothinburana School.

Students’ talents were also on display at the Cambridge Summit Night Dinner Party with several of Satree Phuket School’s Year Nine girls performing a number of songs on stage.

On the second day of the summit students from all four schools had an opportunity to visit the Erawan Museum in Bangkok. Next, students spent a few hours exploring the open-air Museum of Ancient Siam, learning about Thailand’s cultural heritage while taking in the sights of some of the country’s most historically significant structures.

Over the course of the summit students made new friends from Cambridge Programs across the Kingdom. In addition, students were given the opportunity to showcase their talents and learn, not only about Thailand’s cultural past, but also about what it will take for them to be successful in today’s world.

Satree Phuket School will be hosting next year’s Thailand Education Hub Cambridge School Summit and the school will be striving to make everyone in attendance feel welcomed and ensure that they enjoy their stay here on the island.
