There was a recent announcement from the Office of the Private Education Commission (OPEC) which confirmed that International Schools will be able to reopen physically once the the Emergency Decree is lifted and regional permission is given. We will reopen with increased precautions, in place just as soon as permission is granted and it is considered safe.
We will keep our school community updated with developments.
Take care and keep safe.
I am delighted and proud to announce that Hua Hin International School is now formally recognised as an IB World School and we are officially authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Studies will begin for our Year 12 students in August 2020.
This is a seminal moment in our school’s development and is a culmination of the hard work and commitment of all our staff. Mr Lewis and the Secondary team have of course been central to gaining this accreditation but the IBO Verification Report particularly praises the strength of our school’s values and the way in which they are shared by the whole community:
‘The eight I values are a tangible and visible part of how human relationships are nurtured and expectations are set in the school. Conversations with students showed that they feel empowered and supported in developing the school values. The school values are lived out around the school by all members of the community. Leadership and teachers, in living out the I Values, recognise them implicitly and explicitly, the students demonstrate great sense of identity.’ IB verification Report
Thank you to all our parents who have supported us in this accreditation process and indeed in the journey of our school so far. Sometimes it is hard to believe that just 5 years ago our site was just a barren field and now we are amidst a thriving learning community accredited by the Thai Education Ministry, the UK International School Accrediting body the ‘Education Development Trust’, as well as becoming an accredited Cambridge International School Examination centre. Added to all this, we are now an IB World School.
