Gong Xi Fa Cai 2021

On Wednesday 10th February we celebrated Chinese New Year together as a whole school. We baked traditional Bao buns and made up stories for their chosen shapes. During the afternoon we watched and enjoyed a professional Lion Dance whilst listening to the drummers beat their rhythms. We set off firecrackers, (well balloons!) wore our Zodiac face masks, we danced in the hall and listened to stories. But most of all we were together as a school. We could only welcome a limited number of parents to watch because of Covid 19.

Many thanks must go to our Mandarin teacher, Kru Khing for organising such a great day, but also to his helpers Ms Peng and Mr Tom. I think my favourite part were the dances performed by the students. It was interesting to see the different aspects of Thai culture that weaves so clearly through this most Chinese of traditions. This cultural exchange is exactly why we love International Education.

Bloomsbury Reopens For Term 2

Everyone had a fantastic day, buying and selling all for a good cause.

The children also took part in a parade to show off their best Christmas outfits, and in the afternoon enjoyed Christmas parties with their classes, sharing more sweet goodies and gifts. A fabulous day was had by all!

Boarding's Field Trip to Phatthalung

On Saturday 12th December 2020, Bloomsbury boarding students and staff went to Phatthalung province for a day trip. While there, we visited a do-it-yourself Pizza establishment where we made a vegetarian homemade pizza, had an amazing time swimming and boating on bamboo rafts down a local river, and visited a traditional market full of delicious eats and souvenirs.

It was a memorable and exciting trip for all!

Bloomsbury visited Border Patrol Police Schools - Sadao, Songkhla

On 9th December 2020, our Bloomsbury students, staff, and family representatives visited Ban Thung Sabai Chai and Ban Ba Roi Border Patrol Police Schools - Sadao, Songkhla. They were exceptionally gracious, kind, and happy. We saw first hand their integrated ecological sound campus with hen houses, a large pond full of tilapia fishes, and a multitude of fruit and vegetable plants, which provided food for their canteen. We also played charades, sang Christmas songs, and had some classic Thai activities. We made fried banana chips, red curry paste, and ate ice cream today at their student-run store. All in all a fantastic day for all!
