Here is a message from Ms. Teresa and Ms. Jennilea… both of whom could be your teachers next year!
“Thank you for joining us at the Y9 service fair for Children of the Forest last Friday. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and that your students learned a bit more about the organization as well as had a bit of late Friday afternoon fun. Below is a video recapping the event if you’d like to share it with your students.”
As I was leaving school today, I found Aryan collecting rubbish that people had left in the playground and oval.
This is a classic example of the kind of thing we are looking for in the PYP Exhibition – students finding a spark that is highly relevant to their lives, showing that they take it very seriously and taking action to try and do something about it.
Well done, Aryan.
Does anyone have any other examples of Year 6 students already starting to “walk the talk”?

Nick Vujicic has inspired me a lot so far. He is a man who has no arms or legs so maybe he will not be that tall, but his heart is HUGE!!!!! He never gives up even though he can’t do a bunch of things other people does. So now he knows the he shouldn’t give up! And now is is trying to pass it on to others so they don’t give up! At the age of 10 he almost commit suaside, and he said he was glad that he did not die because he would not experience a lot of things.Nick Vujicic is a person who like soccer very much but he can’t play it as well as others so i feel bad for him. I am going to share you a video of Nick Vujicic, and in this video is about how he lives his life and how he likes soccer, and this is when the FIFA WORLD CUP 2010 was gonna happened so he also talked about, he said if you are losing a game you shouldn’t give up, he is saying that we are very lucky to have hands and feet and that we are having to chance to play to represent our country so we should play it to the best of our ability. There is a lot of AMAZING quotes in this video!
If you were told you had to start a revolution at NIST or in this area of Bangkok in order to improve things, what would it be? What would you change and why?
