Introduction Bangkok Patana School has just completed its 63rd year and what a year it has turned out to be! The COVID-19 world pandemic has had a major impact on our daily lives, and we are presently living the new norm of wearing masks and social distancing. Since March 2020 the school has had to adapt to support our student learners, firstly based at home using our dynamic CSL online learning programme and then operating half classes every other day in the last two weeks of Term 3. Our two exam Year groups had to forgo their external examinations and luckily had completed their studies prior to the lockdown. Throughout all of the disruptions and changes, our student body have shown resilience and 'stickability'. The Graduating Class of 2020 had to go without a plethora of planned celebrations in their final term of Secondary school and it was amazing that we could still provide an adapted graduation for them. I am so incredibly proud of our Bangkok Patana students who have proven to me that even during the most adverse conditions, they are adaptable and have successful coping strategies to continue to learn and reach their full potential. Enjoy reading the incredible achievements of our student community so beautifully showcased in this latest publication.

"Perfer et obdura, dolor hic tibi proderit olim." (Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.)

LIVING OUR VALUES IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL Jason Cooper | Primary Principal Well, what a school year 2019/20 turned out to be. When we started the year in August 2019, none of us could have predicted what was to come in March 2020. What we now know is that our students are incredibly passionate, resourceful and resilient, and the school closure gave the students the perfect opportunity to demonstrate this. The achievements that you will see throughout this book exemplify a wide range of the Bangkok Patana values, but none more so than these mentioned above. Our students are amazing learners, not just because they achieve great results, but also because they are developing the skills that will ensure they can be successful under any circumstances. As we celebrate the academic, sporting and creative successes of our students, please take some time to reflect on the all-important attitudes and attributes that have helped our children in achieving this success. Focusing on how we learn ensures that our students develop into independent, lifelong learners who thrive in diverse teams and work together to creatively solve complex problems, even in stressful and uncertain times. Success comes from being kind and compassionate, passionate, resourceful and resilient, as well as ethical and informed. Success also comes from having a strong support network, such as the home - school partnership we nurture here at Bangkok Patana. I sincerely hope you enjoy celebrating the success of our students and seeing how their achievements are the result of living our Patana Values.

Academic Achievements

PRIMARY SCHOOL RESULTS The International Schools Assessment (ISA) is a standardised test that Year 4, 5 and 6 participated in during the 2019/20 academic year. We choose the ISA tests because they are designed specifically for students in Grades 3 - 10 (Years 3 – 11) in international schools whose language of instruction is English.

Schools use the ISA because:

It tests core skills in Mathematical Literacy, Reading and Writing; it is not specific to a single curriculum.

The test material is eclectic, drawing on many cultural and national sources.

It provides diagnostic information that can be used at the school, class, or individual level.

Performance on the ISA can be related to international benchmarks.

We can evaluate the reliability of our internal assessments and confirm that they are aligned with international expectations of performance.

It includes writing tasks and open-ended questions to better illuminate students’ thinking processes.

Below is a summary of our 2020 results compared to the International Schools Assessment (ISA) reference norm. The reference norm is a large cohort of 64,000 ISA participants in 78 countries, providing highly reliable statistical comparisons. When compared to all schools who completed the ISA tests, as well as regional schools (schools in the South East Asian Region), our Year 4 students have outperformed other Year 4 students in Mathematical Literacy; in Reading they are in-line with the Regional and All Schools categories; and our Year 5 and 6 students have outperformed both Regional and All schools in Reading and Mathematical Literacy.”

CELEBRATING AND PLANNING FOR ACHIEVEMENT IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL Helen Thew | Acting Secondary Principal The issue of results for the Graduating Class of 2020 was unprecedented; due to COVID-19 it was done without students taking final examinations, which normally account for between 60 and 80 percent of final grades. This year the International Baccalaureate Organisation awarded grades based significantly on externally assessed coursework and historical data. Pleasingly, for most students, the results were in line with our expectations. Our graduates were recognised for the outstanding scholars that they are, being awarded our highest ever average points score of 37 out of a possible 45 with a pass rate of 98 percent. An impressive 31 percent of the cohort achieved more than 40 points which is a significant challenge for even the most able student. A special mention must also be made of Kelly-Ann Tan, who achieved a maximum 45-point score, and counts herself amongst only 141 students worldwide to do so. The (I)GCSE grades awarded to Year 11 students, although not decided by examinations, were closely in line with our expectations and continue to be a very high standard. Overall, the proportion of the highest grades of A*-A/ 9-7 was an impressive 65 percent with 10 students achieving a full house of A*s, 9s or 8s. I would like to congratulate our new Year 12 students on their achievement so far, while challenging them to reach even greater heights in the IB examinations in two years’ time. Every year, we proudly share these academic results but must not take them for granted. They can only be achieved through the sheer hard work on the part of both students and teachers. As always, the IB and (I)GCSE results are just one measure of all that is achieved over the school year, the tip of the iceberg, crucial as a measure of our success, but not detracting from everything else achieved by our students. As you look over the pages that follow you will see that our students are encouraged to recognise and strive to achieve their own individual potential across a wide range of fields including the arts, sports, Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, MUN (Model United Nations), leadership, contributions to school life or service to the community. If this culture is strong and we recognise, value and celebrate this commitment to participation, then we are truly meeting our mission to fulfil student potential. Whilst the students could not see all their commitments to an end point due to school closure, it was impressive to see the alternatives that were put into place to allow celebrations still to happen such as the Virtual Sports Awards. Finally, I would like to mention the growing significance of student voice in school. Whether in the two Student Representative Councils, the Junior and Senior Delegates, the Environmental Committee, Community Action Teams, Houses or the ICT Advisory group, students made themselves heard clearly and articulately. Congratulations to all and let’s keep it up in 2020/21.

(I)GCSE EXAMINATION RESULTS Richard Lindley | (I)GCSE Examinations Leader

This year’s exceptional arrangements with the cancellation of the (I)GCSE exams meant that grades were awarded based on Centre Assessed Grades along with a standardisation process set by the exam boards. Thankfully, with school only closing in March just a short while before Songkran, our students had completed all their courses and had covered all aspects of the syllabi; therefore, the grades achieved should be viewed equally to previous (I)GCSEs. The grades awarded, although not decided by examinations, were very closely in line with our expectations, and therefore a true representation of our students’ capabilities. These excellent results make us and our students extremely proud. Collectively, they achieved an overall pass rate of 98.3% A*-C/9-4 and our grades awarded for A*- B/9-6 was 86.6%, representing excellent achievement for a non-selective school. Impressively, 59% of the cohort received all their (I)GCSE grades at A* B/9-6. Overall, the proportion of the highest grades of A*-A/9-7 is an impressive 65%, and 10 students achieved a full house of A*s, 9s or 8s.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE Andrew Roff | Senior Teacher Curriculum and Assessment

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a five-term course which consists of students taking six subjects; three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level, each of which can score a maximum of seven points. Additional components of the IB programme are Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay which can provide up to three ‘bonus’ points to students, giving a theoretical maximum score of 45 points, with 24 points being the minimum pass requirement. Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) must also be completed as it is also a core part of the IBDP which aims to encourage students to continue their learning outside the curriculum through their involvement in the local and wider community. Despite the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our students were able to complete all their courses and cover all aspects of the syllabi. The grades awarded therefore, although not decided by examinations, are valid and ones that make us and our students extremely proud.

The Graduating Class of 2020 was a cohort of 127 students, 125 of whom took the full IB Diploma. .

98% of IB Diploma students passed, compared to a World Average (WA) of 78%.

The average points score for students who passed the IB Diploma was 37 points (WA*=30 points).

A mean grade of 5.8 was achieved in individual subjects (WA*=4.7).

*World Average data is taken from the provisional statistical bulletin for the May 2020 session published in July 2020 prior to subsequent grade revisions. This is the most current published source at the time of going to press.

NOTABLE STUDENTS Andrew Roff | Senior Teacher Curriculum and Assessment

To achieve 40 points or more in the IB Diploma is a significant challenge to even the most able student as they must not only balance the demands of their subjects but also those of the core elements (CAS, the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge) and the wide range of extra-curricular activities with which they are involved. To achieve 45 points (the maximum possible IB Diploma score) is quite an outstanding achievement. One student from Bangkok Patana School, Kelly-Ann Tan achieved this feat and can count herself amongst only 141 students worldwide*, from a global cohort of nearly 100,000! A special congratulations Kelly! In May 2020, only 10%* of the global cohort of graduating students received 40 points or more, including the following 39 (31%) Bangkok Patana School students: Kelly-Ann Tan

Using a standardised model allows us to project a likely IB Diploma points score for students based on an adaptive skills test taken at the start of Year 12. Tracking each student's progress against this projection allows us to identify the students who have made the greatest progress over the course of the two-year Senior Studies programme. With this in mind, it is also very important to recognise and celebrate the achievement of the following students who demonstrated excellent application and hard work during the course of their IB Diploma to achieve between 6 and 12 points above expectation:

Bangkok Patana School is proud of its inclusive curriculum, and despite the rigorous demands we do not operate a selective programme. This means that students are given the opportunity, through careful guidance, to study in Senior Studies if they so wish whatever their academic background. This makes our Diploma statistics a particularly special achievement of which we are all extremely proud.

MATHEMATICS Scott Tooley | Head of Mathematics Faculty

UKMT Maths Challenges provide students with the opportunity to take part in lively, intriguing multiple choice question papers, which are designed to stimulate interest in mathematics in large numbers of pupils. The three levels cover the Secondary School 11-18 age range and together they attract over 600,000 entries from over 4,000 schools and colleges. Unfortunately, this year some of the UKMT competitions were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Below you will find a summary of the student results for the competitions that managed to take place.

It was also very unfortunate that the other Mathematical competitions in which we usually compete were also cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Hopefully students this year will get the opportunity to take part as a number of online versions of the competitions are being prepared so that students still manage to have access to these enrichment opportunities.

How do you think you would do? Why not try the question below from SMC UKMT 2019? The number x,y and z satisfy the equations 9x + 3y -5z = -4 and 5x +2y - 2z = 13. what is the mean of x, y and z? A 10

HOUSE SYSTEM Lorna Conroy | Assistant Principal Student Welfare

The House system at Bangkok Patana aims to create a sense of community and healthy competition. It is a system in which all students are involved and where different achievements can be celebrated. It creates leadership opportunities as well as a chance for students of different ages to mix. Students also play a key role in the leadership and management of the system. Each year two student House Captains are selected to lead their House. They work alongside the team of Year Leaders to help organise teams and foster House spirit. Congratulations to the following House Captains for holding these important positions and for being such strong supporters of their House. Lanta House Captains Amar Ritoe Maddie Dewse

They are role models to their peers as well as to the younger students, they represent the student population at whole school events and help to ensure that the views of the students are always considered. It is therefore an extremely important leadership role within the community.. Many congratulations to the following five students for their success in their role as Senior Delegates:

SPORTS Cindy Adair | Assistant Principal Extra-curricular Activities and pSports

2019/20 was a historical year with COVID-19 sweeping the globe and having a huge impact on all of our lives. Sport was not immune to this and, following a fairly normal and successful Season 1, Season 2 and 3 were heavily impacted. Some highlights in the earlier part of the year included:

A nail-biting win for the Varsity Girls’ Volleyball team who won the SEASAC title for the first time in Bangkok Patana’s history.

A large and successful FOBISIA Gymnastics event which was hosted at Bangkok Patana School in conjunction with Ploenchit Fair, where Bangkok Patana walked away with several major team awards.

Another successful Feeding Frenzy Invitational swim meet which attracted almost 500 swimmers from around the region and where our TigerSharks took top honours.

A strong showing at both BISAC and SEASAC Cross Country with some excellent individual finishes.

A big win for the Varsity Boys’ Rugby team who, for the 3rd year running, dominated at BISAC, taking home the Championship Cup.

Our first Patana Family Golf Day which was a fun and friendly day out on the course and raised valuable funds for our CAT clubs.

A successful Girls’ Football Tour to Chiang Mai which gave our Seniors a taste of 11-a-side against some great new friends from Northern Thailand.

A huge thank you and shout out to our amazing PE teachers and coaches who stepped up during the school closures with a host of innovative initiatives to keep our students engaged and active. Live online workouts, cooking lessons and team quizzes, virtual challenges against other schools, entertaining YouTube tutorials and even an online edition of the Sports Awards.

DANCE

21

Our Dance Academy continues to grow from strength to strength. The selective programme has now grown to include a Mini Company, Junior Company, Senior Company and Boys' Company! The major highlight of the year was hosting the first Patana Dance Festival. Two hundred dancers from nine schools around Bangkok came together to participate in a range of master classes, culminating with one large workshop with a celebrity dancer from the Step Up movie franchise. In the afternoon, students re-grouped to compete again one another across three categories and to gain valuable feedback from our guest judges. Bangkok Patana Dance companies placed in all three categories.

GYMNASTICS The Bangkok Patana Gymnastics Academy caters for boys and girls, both recreationally and competitively during the after school ECA programme. There are currently 300+ students involved in the Gymnastics Academy across the school week. Students can participate in school competitions both locally and overseas. This academic year, the Bangkok Patana Gymnastics Academy had the honour of hosting FOBISIA Gymnastics. Over 500 students, from 17 International Schools, representing five different countries participated in this wonderful celebration of gymnastics; helping us fulfil Bangkok Patana’s Mission. We were able to raise THB 137,400 in donations for the British Community in Thailand Foundation for the Needy (BCTFN). The continued success of the Gymnastics Academy is demonstrated through our consistent strong results and more importantly our sportsmanship, both at the team and individual levels.

FOOTBALL

The Football Academy had another strong year with our Varsity Boys’ winning BISAC and our Varsity Girls’ losing out on penalties in the final. Both of our Junior Varsity teams ran out winners in their BISAC competitions playing some excellent football. In our SEASAC competition our girls again narrowly lost in the final with our Boys finishing third. We were the only school in the whole conference to have both teams on the podium. Our Under 13 and Under 15 teams were showing some very promising signs until our year was scuppered by AQI and COVID-19. In the Primary School, our younger age group competed in a range of competitions including the Phuket 7’s and the Thailand International Youth Cup. All the boys and girls are beginning to show a greater game understanding and really grasping the #PatanaWay

SWIMMING The TigerSharks had an impressive year once again, creating history at the ISB Swim Fest with a record Average Points tally as well as continuing the tradition of winning top club at Feeding Frenzy. Across the year, there have been more than 30 school records falling incredible given the shortened year. The students have engaged heavily in both land and swim based virtual meets to complete the 2019/2020 season and will look to defend the SEASAC Girls’ team title in 2020/2021 and challenge perennial rivals UWC-East for the Boys’ title.

TENNIS

2019/2020 will long be remembered as the year that never really was due to COVID-19. The Under 13 teams were able to play a full season with the Boys’ A and B teams reaching the final of their respective BISAC team events with the Girls’ team finishing 4th. In the Singles events, Penn Charusorn won the Boys’ championship whilst Manintorn (Pin) Manavutiveth finished 3rd in the Girls’ event. The Varsity teams both finished as runners up in their BISAC team events before the virus put paid to the SEASAC tournament due to be hosted at Bangkok Patana. In the Singles events, Mark Nielsen dominated the Boys’ championships winning all four of his matches comfortably whilst sister Moniqa, in her final event after a stellar varsity tennis career, finished 3rd in the Girls’ event. Both the Under 15 and Under 11 season were sadly cancelled before a ball was hit.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES Cindy Adair | Assistant Principal Extra-curricular Activities and Sports

A thriving Extra-curricular provision is something we are very proud of at Bangkok Patana School. This allows our students to explore their passions outside of the classroom and develop as whole people. We have some of the most fantastic facilities in greater Bangkok and therefore there is a diverse and inclusive range of offerings every afternoon. Participation in the programme is a great way for our students to meet new friends, have fun, enhance their confidence and self-esteem, and learn new skills. Whether you want to learn to cook and sew, sing and dance, lift weights or paddle a kayak, there is an activity available to suit your needs. Our “ECAs” as they are affectionately known are delivered by our teachers, our highly qualified professional coaches and a team of specialist outside providers.

We are proud of our diverse and inclusive programme, which really allows students to discover and nurture their strengths. Highlights include: Drawing, sculpture, pottery, painting, photography, clay modelling and fashion design ECAs to spark and nurture that creative flare.

Community Action Teams that encourage students to get involved, think globally and act locally. Our students support a wide variety of charities and participate in fundraising efforts to support causes as broad ranging as marine conservation, Habitat for Humanity, Ethical Coffee production, Smile Club, PAWS and Interact. Our students get to meet and interact with members of the local community doing great work and also gain empathy for those less fortunate than themselves.

A dedicated Dance and Drama Academy that offers a huge array of dance styles including; Ballet, Tap, Hip Hop, Jazz, World Dance and Contemporary, culminating in a fantastic annual Dance Extravaganza.

Musical and performing arts focused ECAs including individual instrumental lessons, choirs, ensembles, bands, musicals, productions and the very popular DJ ECA.

A large menu of non-competitive recreational sports to develop overall well-being including roller blading, table tennis, yoga, martial arts, spinning and fitness suite access.

01-32_M5 (2021)+EDIT+.indd 22

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award programme is offered from Year 10 upwards and allows students to gain their Gold, Silver and Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s certifications. Adventurous Journeys on offer include kayaking, hiking and cycling. Primary students can also access the great outdoors via our new Scouting ECAs for both boys and girls.

Cutting edge STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) focused ECAs to equip students with 21st Century skills including coding, programming, robotics, online gaming, podcasting and electronics.

Opportunities to compete and play in sports teams against over schools in Bangkok, South East Asia and greater Asoia via our membership of BISAC, SEASAC and FOBISIA.

Please note: 1. Statistics are a representation of the overall programme and are taken from Block 2 2019/20 ECA data. 2. Years 11 and 13 are examination years and therefore have a lower ECA uptake.

INTERNATIONAL AWARD Kieran Clarke | Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Coordinator

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award. It equips young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their limits and recognises their achievements. Bangkok Patana School has enjoyed another fantastic year with an exceptionally high yield of Bronze, Silver and Gold Award holders. Whether it is Bronze, Silver or Gold, the requirements of becoming a DofE certificate recipient are rigorous, and to manage to complete this world-renowned and prestigious programme during COVID-19 is truly remarkable. Where less dedicated and determined young people could have cast off their activities hours during Continuing Student Learning, Bangkok Patana students demonstrated their mettle by completing their hours at home. Whether it was YouTube-led workout routines, learning new languages or instruments on phone apps or getting shopping for their elderly neighbours, this year’s Duke of Edinburgh International Award cohort jungled home learning and the Award brilliantly and I look forward to celebrating their outstanding achievement together later in Term 1. Bangkok Patana School congratulates the 100 Bronze students, 50 Silver students and 27 Gold students that achieved their Award. An amazing accomplishment with life lessons that will serve them well now and in the years to come.

COMMUNITY ACTION PRIMARY SCHOOL Joanna Mitchell | Primary CAT Coordinator

Tiger Spirit Day started our fundraising off to a great start in 2019/20. Inspirational quotes and learning activities with buddy classes proved to be a great way to collaborative with new faces, as well as living our values of being kind and compassionate learners! Students took responsibility to earn their THB 100 at home, and these donations went towards various children’s projects to enhance their lives. Individual Year groups supported charities such as: Year 5’s Bring, Buy and Bake Sale to raise funds for the Cambodian Clean Water Campaign and Year 6s work with Courageous Kitchen, learning new recipes and donating meals for poorer families and communities. During Continued School Learning, we found other ways to continue our community action on a smaller scale – this included helping siblings with learning, and preparing meals for family members! We found we could still be active volunteers, even from home!

We are Active Volunteers!

Secondary Community Action Teams (CAT) and Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) Projects provide our students with opportunities to engage with real and immediate issues of global importance. Although there have been limitations placed on what can be realistically achieved this year, our student’s direct and indirect service activities have continued to make an impact through striving to meet real needs in the local and global community. Here are some of the most notable achievements this year: World Food Project (WFP)

Flow Movie Night

WFP work towards reducing and raising awareness about global food hunger. In 2019, they were able to raise THB 45,000 for the Yemen famine crisis through a Year 6 fundraiser, as well as a big bake sale in Secondary. The club also had the opportunity to welcome Mr Siemon Hollema from WFP Thailand to educate them about how WFP works around the world and their support in Yemen. They also had their annual food drive which resulted in 150 food boxes donated to 150 families in Klong Toey.

Inspired by their learning in IB Geography, a group of Year 12 students decided to focus the Senior Fundraiser on “Charity Water”, a non-profit organisation that aims to increase access to clean water in some of the poorest regions of the World. Through a showing of the movie, “Journey to the Mysterious Island” the group raised awareness of this issue and over THB 7,000 baht which was donated towards supporting Charity Water's projects.

Project Star Project Star aims to improve the lives of people with disabilities in Thailand. Their motto is “Everyone has a chance to shine”. They currently work mainly with the Camillian Home in Bangkok, a home for disabled children and young adults, ranging from ages 2 to 20. For the past two years, they have been working towards creating a multi-sensory room for Camillian Home, raising over THB 100,000 through various fundraisers. One for One One for One is a CAT club that aims to raise funds for underprivileged students to provide an educational future. They also aim to educate the Bangkok Patana community about circumstances faced by many children worldwide regarding the lack of education. They fund education for two students in Mae Hong Son; one girl named Mol and one boy named Piyawat. Amnesty Amnesty has long been part of the school community; it focuses primarily on protecting the rights of individuals. Over the past few years, Patana's Amnesty Club has continuously grown and persevered in advocating human rights awareness in the school community. Amnesty's focus last year was on the Rohingya refugee crisis and women's rights.

Patana Development Bank The annual, inter-school charity coding conference, The Techathon, was yet again a huge success. This event’s aim was to raise funds for the PDB initiative which provide microfinance loans to underprivileged people across the world through an international non-profit organisation, “Kiva”. This year the group raised over THB 23,000 for housing and education projects. The Ruth Centre We often forget the elderly in our communities, and for this reason the students involved in this CAS project decided that they wanted to do something to improve the lives of older people. Working with the Ruth Centre, a local charity, the group made regular visits to elderly members of the local community and supported the organisations work through the sale of goods at the Christmas Concert and other school events. Youths for SDGs (2020) This year Bangkok Patana was proud to host the annual Youths for SDGs conference, which focuses on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The objectives of this student organised event included raising awareness about the SDGs, creating a network of young people passionate about making change and promoting creativity in finding solutions towards current local issues. A big congratulations to the many Bangkok Patana students from Years 10 to 13 who were actively involved in the preparation, organisation and smooth running of the event. Well done to all our Secondary student volunteers, you have shown yourselves to be true global citizens!

MODEL UNITED NATIONS Michael Brooks | MUN Advisor

Model United Nations at Bangkok Patana allows students to hone their debating skills as they discuss matters of world importance in a challenging but enjoyable atmosphere. In addition to becoming highly proficient in public speaking, delegates enjoy the wonderful camaraderie that comes from working with fellow students from different Year groups and from other international schools in Thailand and across South East Asia. At this very troubling time, never has the rationale behind the establishment of the MUN seemed more relevant. In 2019/20, MUN Secretary General Shaurya Sachdeva (Year 13), ably supported by Parliamentarians Kanlayarak (Fai) Tangkaravakoon (Year 12), Manya Mittal (Year 12) and Benyapa (Uefa) Benjasiriwan (Year 12) presided over the events of the year in a highly efficient manner. Every Monday after school, over 60 students are involved in the MUN ECA. In October, Bangkok Patana hosted the BKKMUN Conference. Three hundred and seventy delegates attended from throughout Thailand and the day was one of furious resolution writing and fruitful debate. Shaurya Sachdeva and the Parliamentarians led proceedings in a very capable manner and all delegates had a most enjoyable day. In November, a team of seven students represented Bangkok Patana in one of the most prestigious events on the MUN calendar, the IASAS MUN conference. This was held in the International School of Kuala Lumpur. Those taking part were Benyapa (Uefa) Benjasirawan, Renee Kwok (Year 12), Patrick Ledoit (Year 11), Samuel Lee (Year 13), Navraj Singh (Year 13), Shriya Srivastava (Year 12), Kanlayarak (Fai) Tangkaravakoon. Topics under debate included the rights of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, the question of minority rights in South-East Asian nations, the question of resolving the Yemen crisis and the Iranian revolution 1978-1982. January saw a delegation from Bangkok Patana attend the CISSMUN Conference in Shanghai. Making up the delegation were Arnav Baliga (Year 10), Akekanat (Iim) Chunhagsikarn (Year 10), Shrish Mahesh (Year 10), Kanlayarak (Fai) Tangkaravakoon, Samantha Wallace (Year 12), Annabel Brett (Year 12), Renee Kwok and Benyapa (Uefa) Benjasirawan. All students acquitted themselves excellently. Sadly, CISSMUN proved to be the last conference of this academic year. Our newly formed Secretariat, consisting of Secretaries General Manya Mittal and Kanlayarak (Fai) Tangkaravakoon and Parliamentarians Odele Pang (Year 12), Priya Shah (Year 12) and Shriya Srivastava, really hope that things will return to normal soon and 2020/21 will be another successful year for the MUN at Bangkok Patana.
