U13 FOBISIA GAMES
 
 
Thursday 12th March to Monday 16th March saw Bangkok Prep host the U13 FOBISIA Games. Five British schools from across Asia participated in 4 sports: swimming, athletics, football and basketball.
 
Day 1: Swimming and Athletics
 
Our elite swimming squad opened the games with top performances, picking up numerous medals in individual races, relays and taking the winner’s trophy home to Bangkok Prep.
 
The afternoon event was performed in hot conditions. All participants took part and demonstrated excellent determination in each event. Well done to those individuals winning medals and the boy’s B relay team winning silver.
 
Day 2: Boys Football and Girls Basketball
 
The boys played fantastic football, displaying great team work throughout the day. Competition was tough, especially against the British School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL). The boys finished up in 2nd place leaving the stadium with a smile.
 
Over at Bangkok Prep the girls were also playing with energy and enthusiasm. Tough competition against St. Andrews Green Valley (STAGV) saw the girls achieving 2nd place winners.
 
Day 3: Girls Football and Boys Basketball
 
In the football competition our girls fought to the very end. With a small panel of 9 girls, each player demonstrated commitment and hard work to the final whistle.
 
Our basketball players were giving their full dedication to their performance. A 3 way joint top saw the team come in at 3rd place due to point difference. Well done boys!

Gala Dinner

To round off the games a gala dinner was held at the hotel to celebrate the event. We were very pleased to have Khun Patrada, our Licence Holder; Mrs Valerie Thomas-Peter our Head of School and Mr Duncan Stonehouse, Head of Primary in attendance. It was also so good to see so many of our parents attend. We were joined by our generous sponsors Eric and Robbie from Paleo Robbie who provided the healthy meals for all the competitors.
 
Our special guest was Mr Ike Nwanko, former NBA basketball star who provided us with a most inspiring speech. He was also kind enough to pose for photographs with the students.
 
Hosting the event was a major undertaking with four different venues being used.
Thanks to everyone for their positive contribution. It was a real team effort with our students, teachers, school support staff and parents showing a tremendous amount of effort and goodwill.

Bangkok Prep Sports Days

Bangkok Prep celebrated its Sports Days on Tuesday 3rd February and Wednesday 4th February at the Royal Thai Army Stadium.


Bangkok Prep Sport Days
 
Bangkok Prep celebrated its Sports Days on Tuesday 3rd February and Wednesday 4th February at the Royal Thai Army Stadium. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by parents, staff and most importantly, students. The atmosphere in the stadium was very exciting with each house cheering out loud and waving their brightly coloured banners.
 
Both the days started early with track events, allowing students to show off their speed and determination. Following on from this the field events took place, enabling those with powerful throws and jumps gather some points for their house teams. Throughout the day there was evidence of teamwork, team building and sportsmanship.
 
The results at the end of the day were very close, but unfortunately there can only be one house winner on each day. All students’ performances contributed to the final scores, which resulted in the “Bears” and “Ursus” being victorious winners.
 
Your energy, enthusiasm and enjoyment were evident. Well done to all who participated in the events!

Bangkok Prep to open new secondary campus in 2017

Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School (Bangkok Prep), a leading private international school is opening a new secondary campus on Sukhumvit 77.

The land will be approximately 3 kilometres from the existing campus on Sukhumvit 53, and conveniently accessible from BTS Onnut, Sukhumvit 71 and Ram Inthra - At Narong Express way. The campus will be surrounded by a private residential neighbourhood and is scheduled to open in August 2017.

Catering for students aged 12-18 years, Bangkok Prep’s Secondary Campus will offer classes in Year 7 – Year 13. The school’s current campus on Sukhumvit 53 will be turned into a Primary School, offering classes from Nursery to Year 6 for students aged 3 – 11 years.

Bangkok Prep’s programme of study is based on the National Curriculum of England, offering high quality education to students from Nursery up to Year 13. A rigorous IGCSE programme (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) is offered to Year 10 and Year 11 students as a precursor to the Cambridgeapproved A-levels available to study in Year 12 and Year 13, preparing students towards university education.

“We took the time to locate the most appropriate land for the school, and we are convinced that this site provides the perfect location for the new Secondary Campus,” said Valerie Thomas-Peter, Bangkok Prep’s Head of School.

“Our new campus reflects the need to expand our facilities to meet the demand of our growing student body, specifically that of Secondary students in the age bracket 16-18, who are keen to study A levels”, explained Valerie.

“Bangkok Prep’s students are achieving well and their academic success has ensured that they are able to study in leading universities worldwide including Thailand, Asia, the US, UK and Europe, once they graduate from the school. With our internationally recognised curriculum, qualified and experienced teaching staff and a genuinely international student body, Bangkok Prep provides a high quality learning environment, where students can prepare for life and realise their full potential through interactions in a stimulating learning community.”

“We are confident that Bangkok Prep will prove to be the top choice of school amongst parents in years to come,” she added.

Founded in 2002, Bangkok Prep has grown steadily in recent years in response to demand from expatriate and local families looking for high quality British education in a diverse and international community. The school’s current student body is now 778, comprising of more than 42 nationalities with 57% non-Thai students and the remaining 43% Thai students. Approximately 500 students are expected to transfer to the new secondary campus.

The state-of-the-art technology and facilities that will be available at the new Bangkok Prep Secondary Campus will feature modern classrooms and labs, a full sized sports field, a 50-metre swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, a sports complex, a creative arts, drama and music center and an auditorium.

Bangkok Prep is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and Office for National Education Standards and Quality Assurance (ONESQA). The school is also a member of the International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT), Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) and Thailand International Schools Activity Conference (TISAC) as well as the Cambridge University-approved IGCSE and Alevel examination centre.
