Colour Run for Charity
On the very last day before half term, Samakee students and teachers laced up their running shoes and took part in a colour run for charity, organised by the Nightingale team. Students from all year groups showed determination, courage and desire as they raced around the Samakee grounds. Friends and other classes covered the runners in colour while music and shouts of encouragement blasted out from the speakers. It was a wonderful day, and a worthy cause, raising over 60,000 baht for charity!
YEAR 7 – GENIUS HOUR
What if I allowed you to learn about anything you wanted? Y7 students have been exploring their own interests and passions with our Google inspired Genius Hour ranging from creating their own computer games, to portraying French fashion through the ages, to writing their own books. They produced some fantastic work that showed creativity, innovation and inspiration.
As we continue to challenge ourselves during online lessons, students have been exploring different ways of working together. This involves working in focus groups and breakout rooms, brainstorming new ideas and giving meaningful feedback.
We have not yet been told when our schools might next be open for students, but between now and then, their education will continue, and we very much look forward to welcoming everyone back to face to face school as soon as it is safe to do so.
Wishing you and your family a pleasant weekend.
