Session with Ms. Ashley

November 2, 2010 7 comments

We watched this video first and then discussed the issues that it brings up. We talked about how our behaviour can sometimes change when we are in groups and that we can be influenced by our friends in positive and negative ways.

Then we watched a really excellent presentation by a guy called Trevor Romain – what was the main thing you learned from Trevor?

At the end of the session, some of you said how much you enjoy your conversations with Ms. Ashley. Why are these conversations so special?

Can meditation help organization?

August 30, 2010 40 comments

We have been meditating every morning for a few days, and we will continue doing it for some time. We are experimenting to see if meditation helps us to be more calm, thoughtful people during the school day. It is also possible that meditation can help us to be more organized.

What information have you found about the connection between meditation and organization?

Need Help!

For the hydroponics I’m going to plant the small seedlings on thursday. I need your help to do this. I will appreciate if anyone comes and help. It will only take a few minutes and we won’t get wet. This crop will be Thai vegetables so it will grow quickier than salad so we can harvest on the last week of school.

Extending the “Together We Can” Slogan

May 25, 2010 2 comments

6SS have been thinking about what is needed in order for Thailand to emerge from the current situation as a better and stronger country. Today, we shared all of our ideas for how to extend the “Together We Can” slogan that was used to generate interest in the “Big Cleanup” on Sunday. The  students discussed what all of the causes of last week’s events were and tired to look behind the media, the gossip, the rumours and the colours.

By sharing their ideas they have formed seven new slogans:

“Together we can rethink about the choices we make.”

“Together we can all have a voice.”

“Together we can respect and care for eachother.”

“Together we can earn the trust of other people in the world.”

“Together we can make Thailand a cleaner place than before.”

“Together we can bring back the land of smiles.”

“Together we can correct our mistakes.”

A question for our audience: what do you think about these slogans? What effect do you think they could have? Could they be improved? Are they clear enough?
