The week ahead….


The next week looks set to be one of the most memorable so far for myself and for my school, quite exciting!

Showing off for the camera

Our school will be joining with a school in Malaysia, starting a partnership to share information and resources taking to a “world-class” level. The school is clearly extremely excited about this as its a HUGE deal and have been preparing for months. Last few weeks have seen renovations in the school, daily morning drum practice and Thai dancing practice as well as students and teachers brush up on their English so they can make speeches during the event. (Most of the speech’s have been adjusted by the foreign teachers (just for the record I am the foreigner here!))

Welcome Line

Today has been hectic!! Came in this morning only to be told that I had to go straight to rehearsals and that my first 3 classes would be cancelled to allow me time to do so…. great news considering I only have four classes on a Thursday!!

 

 

 From what I have seen so far they wont half put on a good show as the dancing, singing and group performances were brilliant!!

On Sunday there is a big ceremony followed by dinner, and we have not been excluded… Forgein teachers will be taking to the stage to sing Michael Jackson “Heal The World” and John Lennon “Imagine” dressed in traditional Thai dress. As much as I am not looking forward to singing I have to admit that I am looking forward to getting some off the fancy dresses that they wear on big occasions!
