Loy Krathong Celebrations
We all had a really lovely Loy Krathong day on Friday. Students looked resplendent in their traditional Thai costumes and they all showed wonderful imagination in the making of their Krathongs.

I hope you all managed to find some peaceful waters to float away any worries.

Covid19 precautions – inspection
Representatives from the Ministry of Education and the Governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan’s office inspected our school last week and declared that ‘HHIS adheres rigorously to Covid precautionary measures’.

Bright Dawn – Book Appeal
We have always enjoyed having close ties with our neighbouring Thai schools through the Bright Dawn Charity. These local schools are having a real focus on helping the children’s reading in Thai and English but they are very short of books.

Bright Dawn are appealing to our school community to donate any books that your children may well have grown out of, to the local schools. Please do drop any books off at our security for collection by Bright Dawn. Thank you.

Remembrance Day
Thank you for your support on the sale of poppies. 2,867THB was raised for the local Royal British Legion. Thank you to Alma, Jessica and Noah for organising this collection.

Global Links
Weekly conversation sessions with fellow IB students in Mexico continue this year for our IB students, who are studying Spanish. Students are enjoying the opportunity to improve their Spanish and to learn about Hispanic culture, traditions and festivals

Capital bonds
Capital bonds remain available for parents. Capital bonds contribute to the construction of our expanding facilities. Each 500,000 THB bond entitles parents to a discount of 10,000 THB from termly fees. This is equal to a return of 6% per annum.

The bond will be repaid in full when either:
– The students leave the school;
– The holder gives one term’s notice;
– At the expiry of 5 years.

If you are interested in investing in one or more bonds, please complete the form via this link https://forms.gle/CnZx5VFtxHs6Jyyi9
