At our press event “The Pride of British Education” by King’s College International School Bangkok at SO Sofitel Bangkok, Mr Andrew Halls (Head Master of King’s College School, Wimbledon) shared his vision on the future of education.
Mr Halls spoke about the attention that his school pays to each student’s wellbeing and the focus on helping students develop a well-rounded wisdom and character. The collective efforts of all staff to care for all students will shape them into individuals who can make contributions to their societies.
Mr Thomas Banyard, Founding Head of King’s College International School Bangkok, spoke about how the new school in Bangkok would adopt the principles of King’s Wimbledon where the work is centred around the co-curricular programme, the pastoral care system and the academic curriculum.
The co-curricular programme encourages students to look beyond their academic timetable to develop their interests and find new activities to enjoy. The renowned pastoral care system offers students close and continuous guidance in all matters and aspects of life at King’s Bangkok. These key principles are embraced in our school’s idea that “a great heart will take your children further”.
King’s Bangkok student uniforms were exhibited and well received by attending parents. Among hundreds of honorable parents, Khun “Name” Prakarn Raiva, lead vocalist of Getsunova and his wife Khun “Poh” Sarasha, were also present to share their vision of future education for their 4-month-old daughter.
