On behalf of the entire HeadStart International staff, welcome back to school! We hope you had an excellent and relaxing summer. We are looking forward to a school year filled with learning and growth.

Again, welcome, and we cannot wait to make this school year the best yet!

Friday School Assemblies

Today marked our first all school assembly. Students and teachers stood in respect of the Thai National Anthem as well as the English National Anthem.

The following students were acknowledged for their athletic successes during the summer break:

Ladda Damdaeng (Newle) in Year 9 won the Silver prize (2nd place) in the Female/ Under 14/ 48 kilo Judo category organised by the Royal Thai Air force. Congratulations to Newle!

James van Herzeele in Year 6 won 1st place in all Clay court tennis competitions in Deist, Belgium and participated in the Thanyapura Tennis Competition. Well done James!

Louise Landgraaf from Reception won 2nd place in the Tacola Championship Tournament swimming competition in Phang Nga. Congratulations!

Flag Raising/All school Assembly takes place every Friday morning at 8:00 am. Students are expected to assemble at the Football pitch and line up quietly in preparation for the Thai National Anthem as well as the anthem of another country. Typically there are announcements made and awards handed out at this time.

Preschool Department Receives Top Award!

Today was an exciting day for our Preschool/Nursery Team. There are currently 31 Nurseries registered in Phuket under the Phuket Office of the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security. Today, the Phuket governor, Maitri Intisut formally awarded the HeadStart Nursery as one of only 4 nurseries in Phuket to receive the “Outstanding Nursery” award for 2013.

The three other nurseries receiving the award were Kanokkwan Nursery, Suanluang Nursery, Phuket International Kingdergarten School. This makes HeadStart the only international school in Phuket to have received the award this year.

Congratulations to our Preschool / Nursery Team for their efforts, care and diligence!

Congratulations to our Year 11 students! Although not all of them could make it to the ceremony we are very proud of each one that attended!

A special thank you to the Blue Elephant for hosting our event. The food and set up was fabulous!
