WELCOME TO THE BRAND NEW
At Rawai Park School we put a lot of emphasis on creative writing. Creative writing is not only a way to help students develop their creativity and feel more comfortable when they do their writing, but it has also proved to improve language learning through increased motivation.
This week we celebrated Say Something Nice Day – a day on which we all make an effort to say something nice to people and to be a little kinder and nicer for the day. But being kind should be something we strive for every day. There are many reasons why we should be kind. Some are more surprising than others!
Magical Field Trip On Tuesday, May 17th, the entire student body of Rawai Park School had a special treat, an all-day field trip! You can imagine the uncertainty of wondering how the weather would be, but thankfully, the day dawned with beautiful weather, and it remained so all day; there was no repeat of the torrential rains we have been having of late. The student body with attendant teachers loaded up in vans to go to the cinema at Central Festival to watch the thrilling fantasy movie, Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which they thoroughly enjoyed Once the movie was finished, we loaded back up in vans to go to the park for a wonderful, delicious picnic, glorying in the marvelous weather and enjoying the park environment with its wide-open spaces and play areas.

We are very grateful to all of the students, parents, and staff, and most especially to Tina and Kim from Bodhi Rescue for all of the hard work that was put into the day to make it such a big success!

March 18th, International Day at Rawai Park School! Each and every child was engaged in some sort of performance whether it was singing, dancing, acting, or quoting. The Finnish community delighted us with a dance demonstration from their country. After the show, everyone was invited to visit the tables set up around the pool to sample the food and other wares from the countries that make up RPS, namely Finland, Italy, South Africa, England, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, America, Peru, and Thailand. And delicious it was!
March 8th, International Women’s Day, and Rawai Park School organized a variety of activities to celebrate and honor our wonderful mothers and women. We feel it’s vital that our students learn the importance of taking time to show gratitude to the great diversity of people that any society is made up of, and at the top of that list are women!
My home country is Wales, a small but beautiful country that shares a border with England and is one of the four countries that makes up the United Kingdom. On the first day of March every year, we celebrate St David’s Day, the feast day of St David, the patron saint of Wales. It is a day to celebrate our heritage and culture by wearing traditional Welsh clothing and wearing daffodils and leeks, the recognized symbols of Wales. We put on parades, take part in traditional Welsh dances and eat traditional Welsh food such as cawl (a meat and vegetable broth), Welsh rarebit (a fancy version of cheese on toast), and Welsh cakes. Being Welsh is a big part of who I am, especially when it comes to rugby and football matches!
The students of Rawai Park School arrived eager and excited for their first day back this past Monday. The return to school coincided perfectly with International Nutrition Month - a month dedicated to raising the awareness of making healthy food choices as well as the importance of developing and maintaining a good physical routine.
A balanced diet is vital for your child's health and can help them feel well during exam periods. Some parents find high-fat, high-sugar, and high-caffeine foods and drinks, such as energy drinks, cola, sweets, chocolate, burgers, and chips, make their children hyperactive, irritable, and moody. Where possible, involve your child in shopping for food and encourage them to choose some healthy snacks.
