Introduction One of my educational heroes is Dr John Hattie, he is a Professor of Education and has been the Director of the Melbourne Education Research Institute at the University of Melbourne, Australia, since March 2011. John has surveyed thousands of students over the years to ascertain how they learn best. At a presentation in London he stated that, as adults. we are really fortunate if we have one or two teachers that really made a difference in our lives. For me, it will always be Mrs Avery who I had for Geography and English when I was in the sixth form. I remember very early on in the year she pulled me aside and stated, “I know exactly what your game is and I want to tell you right now you are better than a B as I see solid A’s all over your face!” I had never experienced such a powerful and honest response from a teacher before and couldn’t get the A out of my head and suddenly, within weeks, I kept getting straight A’s in both subjects Mrs Avery taught me. I consequently went into education because of the impact she had on me. I am very confident in saying that at Bangkok Patana School we have proud alumni that have three or four teachers that they can name and say they made a difference in their lives. Enjoy reading the incredible achievements of our student community so beautifully showcased in this latest publication.

LIVING OUR VALUES IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL Jason Cooper | Primary Principal The achievements that you will see throughout this book exemplify a wide range of the values of Bangkok Patana School. They are the result of our students feeling ‘Protected, safe and secure, motivated and engaged, and also balanced and fulfilled’. With a strong foundation in Well-being, the students can be inquisitive and creative, collaborative and confident communicators, and critical, reflective thinkers. As we design the learning experiences for our students, we are able to weave in critical elements of global citizenship to ensure that our students are committed to integrity, diversity, inclusivity and are inspired to improve global sustainability.

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. 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 witnessing our values in action as you read through the following pages.


Academic Achievements

PRIMARY SCHOOL RESULTS The International Schools Assessment (ISA) is a standardised test that Year 4, 5 and 6 participated in during the 2018/19 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 2019 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, 5 and 6 students have outperformed other students of the same age groups in the ISA Reference Norm in Mathematical Literacy and Reading.

CELEBRATING AND PLANNING FOR ACHIEVEMENT IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL Mick Smith | Secondary Principal

We are very fortunate to belong to a school where our students achieve so much across so many areas every day of the academic year. I am convinced that if our students really engage, listen and act upon constructive feedback to set challenging personal targets then achievement, especially in academics, will take care of itself. This year we celebrate the astonishing personal achievement of three of our students who gained the ‘unicorn’a perfect score of 45 points in the IB Diploma. That places them among only around 200 of some 150,000 students who took the Diploma worldwide. However, we are equally proud of all our students who challenged themselves and left no stone unturned to reach their own personal potential whether academically in external exams at IB or (I)GCSE, or outside the classroom. In wider school life, we love to see students in Key Stage 3 being active participants in Community Action Teams alongside colleagues in Senior Studies. We love it when those older students ask if they can volunteer as mentors to Year 7 students beginning their Secondary School careers. Our Extra-curricular Activities programme abounds with amazing achievements every single day in sports, the arts, outdoor education and countless other activities as our students explore their passions. Congratulations to all our wonderful students on all that you have achieved over the last year…now look ahead. What small steps, what tweaks in individual classes or your overall approach to learning and to school life can you take right now to make progress towards your own targets? Finally, in a year where we really want everyone to think about their own well-being, remember that feeling positive about yourself is the cornerstone to academic and other achievements. If you feel good you are more likely to be energised, purposeful and in a position to achieve your goals. Take time to look after your wellbeing: exercise, listen to music, spend quality time with your friends and your family, eat and sleep well. If you’re not feeling positive or things are getting on top of you then speak with someone here at school - your tutor, Head of Year, a teacher, one of our counsellors. We understand that growing up and ‘achieving’ at the same time can be tough and will do all that we can to support you.

(I)GCSE EXAMINATION RESULTS Richard Lindley | (I)GCSE Examinations Officer and Simon Griffiths | Key Stage 4 Student Progress and Assessment Leader

Each year, thousands of students in the UK and around the world sit (I)GCSE examinations. At Bangkok Patana School our students sit both Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and Edexcel IGCSEs in a wide variety of subjects. In May/June 2019 a total of 185 students sat these examinations with the majority being from Year 11, but there was also an additional cohort from Year 10 sitting IGCSE Mathematics a year early, along with some students from Years 9 and 10 sitting examinations in their first language. 2019 is the first year that all Edexcel qualifications were awarded using the new 9 – 1 grade scheme, with 9 being the highest, and 9/8 being the equivalent of an A*. We are exceedingly proud of our IGCSE students whose two years of hard work has been rewarded with outstanding results. The cohort achieved 94% of grades at or above the minimum benchmark of a Grade C / 5 (recognised as a ‘good’/‘strong’ pass). In addition, an incredible 80.2% of all grades were awarded at A*-B or 9 - 6, which is a phenomenal achievement. 118 students (80%) achieved an average exam grade of B /6 or above. Resilience and determination certainly played their part, with students from across the ability range achieving their potential. June 2019 Overall (I) GCSE Results Grade

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE Andrew Roff | Senior Studies Assessment and Curriculum Leader/IB Coordinator

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.

The Graduating Class of 2019 was a cohort of 125 students, 123 of whom took the full IB Diploma.

The average points score for students who passed was 35 points (WA=30 points).

96% of IB Diploma students passed, against a World Average (WA) of 77%.

A mean grade of 5.5 was achieved in individual subjects (WA=4.8).

NOTABLE STUDENTS Andrew Roff | Senior Studies Assessment and Curriculum Leader/IB Coordinator

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 and the three students from Bangkok Patana School who achieved this feat can count themselves amongst only 213 students worldwide, from a global cohort of nearly 100,000! A special congratulations must go to Prabhav Kumar, Anya Paopiamsap, and Yuqing Wu. In May 2019 only 10% of the global cohort of graduating students received 40 points of more, including the following 20 (16%) Bangkok Patana School students: Prabhav Kumar

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 five to seven points above expectation: Louise Matias Velayo

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.

We also sent six competitors to the senior competition. Their medal haul was even more impressive with Ann Kanchanasakdichai and Hoang Huy (Henry) Phan winning one medal, Fresh Pisuttisarun winning three medals and Yuqing Wu winning an amazing five medals. Overall a number of students performed well enough to be offered the ‘golden ticket’ to the World Mathematics Championships held in Australia. Palis (Fresh) Pisuttisarun and Ann Kanchanasakdichai used their ‘golden’ ticket and took part in what can only be described as a mathematical marathon. They each took part in 12 extremely challenging rounds over five days of competition. Amazingly, Fresh Pisuttisarun came out the winner becoming our first World Champion of Mathematics.

How do you think you would do? Why not try the question below from SMC UKMT 2018? For particular real number a, and b, the function

f

is defined by f (x) = ax + b, and is such that f[f[f(x)]] = 23x -52.

Competitions

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

The Patana Tigers and TigerSharks continued to wear our Orange and Black colours with pride in 2018/19 and posted some fantastic results. Our participation rates are at an all time high with Bangkok Patana School entering 49/50 leagues in BISAC, full participation in all SEASAC events and full participation in all FOBISIA events – more than any other school in the region. After achieving four SEASAC wins in 2017/18 we were determined to consolidate that success. Congratulations to our Junior Boys’ Swimming Team, Level 5 Boys’ Gymnastics Team, Level 3 Senior Girls’ Gymnastics Team, Level 4 Senior Girls’ Gymnastics Team, Senior Girls’ Swimming Team, Varsity Boys’ Football Team, Varsity Girls’ Softball Team and Varsity Girls’ Tennis Team on being crowned 2018/19 SEASAC Champions. This is a testament to the strong development pathway that starts in Primary and stretches into Secondary in addition to all the hard work put in by the student-athletes, their coaches and their supportive parents. After a two year term as Chair of BISAC, Bangkok Patana has handed over the reins to Ruamrudee International School, whilst we have now taken up the Chair of SEASAC, which we will lead for a two year term.

SWIMMING

The TigerSharks are ranked 5th worldwide for International School swimming and won the SEASAC title for Senior Girls and retained the Junior Boys title. Prim Pingkarawat (Year 9) won three Gold medals at SE Asia Age Groups in Cambodia as part of team Thailand. Prim, Max Stockdale, Prin Chantarangkul, Andrew Bertoli and Chloe Burkill took part in British (top 24) and English Nationals. Max earned three 5th place finishes in British finals. TigerSharks earned their first ever top 10 finish as a team in Thai Nationals; relay golds for the Senior Girls and Junior Years mixed team. The TigerSharks also took away titles at Junior and Senior BISAC, ISB Swim Fest, Feeding Frenzy and Summer Sizzler.

GYMNASTICS The Bangkok Patana Gymnastics Academy received a state-of-the-art upgrade with a 130-seat viewing gallery for the parents, a mirror and ballet barre for the floor exercise. Bangkok Patana has the most comprehensive school gymnastics programme in South East Asia with full teams in both boys and girls at all levels. Our gymnasts competed at twelve competitions including FOBISIA, BISAC and SEASAC. Bangkok Patana is fully committed to continually grow the Gymnastics Academy with new events including a weekend workshop by the Singapore National Gymnastics Association for our gymnasts and a British Gymnastics Trampoline course for our gymnastics coaches.

TENNIS

The Varsity Girls’ victory won their eighth victory in nine years at SEASAC and the Varsity Boys’ finished 3rd. Both teams won the BISAC team cup and Pawinee (Balloon) Ruamrak won both the Varsity and Under 15 BISAC singles. Under 15 Boys won the BISAC cup whilst the Under 15 girls were runners up and both the Under 13 Boys and Girls came third. Mark Nielsen won the Boys' Under 15 BISAC title and Penn (Penne) Charusorn won the Under 11 BISAC Singles and was runner up in the Under 13 event. Balloon, Mark and Penne won the U15 Girls’, U15 Boys’ and U13 Boys’ Singles events in the regional FOBISIA championships. Penne was selected for the Under 12 National Team and many of the Under 10 and Under 12 players gained a National ranking.

FOOTBALL The Football Academy was launched offering coaching to all players at school. The Varsity Boys' team won both BISAC and SEASAC competitions. Our Junior Varsity teams both came very close to winning their BISAC competitions. Our Under 13 and Under 15 teams all had good seasons however the BISAC competitions were cancelled due to poor air quality. At the FOBISIA games all four teams made it to the top four and Under 13 girls crowned champions. A new selective programme launched with Year 4 students crowned champions at the Harrow Tournament.

DANCE AND DRAMA The Dance and Drama Academy was introduced in 2018 and launched new classes including Musical Theatre, Commercial Jazz, Technique and Conditioning and new levelled classes in Primary and Secondary. The Dance Company was introduced with 20 dancers from Year 5 to Year 13, split into two age categories – Juniors and Seniors. The Academy launched new drama classes for both Primary and Secondary students and offered the annual Dance Extravaganza event, splitting it over two days, with Junior and Senior Extravaganzas that saw around 250 students perform.

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.

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.

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.

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

A large menu of non-competitive recreational sports to develop overall well-being including horse-riding, sailing, yoga, martial arts, spinning and fitness suite access.

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.

Please note: 1. Statistics are a representation of the overall programme and are taken from Block 2 2018/19 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 personal limits and recognises their achievements. Bangkok Patana School has a proud tradition of offering this world renowned and prestigious Award. The Award supports and strengthens Bangkok Patana’s commitment towards student well-being; trying new things, spending time outdoors, exercising, and helping others around you are all scientifically proven to increase the production of hormones in our bodies that support well-being and happiness. Not only do we see short term improvements in well-being, the Award is highly respected by employers and universities alike. A candidate with a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award on their application has demonstrated a commitment to continued self-improvement. Bangkok Patana School congratulates the 90 Bronze students, 37 Silver students and 24Gold students that achieved their Award. An amazing accomplishment with life lessons that will serve them well now and in the years to come.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC David Larking | Co-ordinator of Instrumental Music

Bangkok Patana School strongly encourages experiences extending beyond the curriculum. With this philosophy in mind, the Instrumental Music Department provides individual music tuition to approximately 550 students from Year 1 to Year 13. Although we place emphasis on participating in external examinations, we also aim to cultivate creativity and personal expression through music. As one of the largest external examination music centres in Thailand, students at Bangkok Patana School participate in exams overseen by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) and Trinity Rock and Pop.

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. MUN Secretaries General Samuel (Dillon) Rajakarier (Year 13), Benjamin (Ben) Sanders (Year 13) together with Parliamentarians Lily Wilson (Year 13), Hoang Huy (Henry) Phan (Year 13) and Rithwik Reddy Raghuram (Year 13) presided over the events of 2018 and 2019. Every Wednesday after school, 60 students were involved in fruitful debate. In October 2018, 30 students attended the annual BKKMUN conference at NIST. Four of these students acted as Chairs; Maya Lemaire (Year 12), Armand Dogra (Year 13), Dillon Ralakarier and Ben Sanders. Bangkok Patana also sent delegates to the SEASAC Conference at Harrow School, Bangkok where Tavisha Khanna (Year 10) and Dillon Rajakarier served admirably as Chairs. In April, a delegation from Bangkok Patana attended the THAIMUN Conference at Concordian International School in Bangkok. Maya Lemaire presided over the conference as Secretary General. In addition, Bangkok Patana supplied seven chairs for the conference; Rithwik Reddy Raghuram, Henry Phan, Armand Dogra, Dhruv Mittal (Year 13), Dillon Rajakarier, Shaurya Sachdeva (Year 12) and Ben Sanders. For the year 2019-20, we welcome new Secretary General Shaurya Sachdeva (Year 13) and Parliamentarians Manya Mittal (Year 12), Kanlayarak (Fai) Tangkaravakoon (Year 12) and Samuel Lee (Year 13).

Secondary Community Action Teams (CAT) and Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) Projects provide our students with opportunities to truly engage with real and immediate issues, at both the local and global scale. Students from across the Secondary School work together through both indirect means, such as fundraising and advocacy, and more direct active volunteering, to tackle the challenges they identify. The most successful of these projects implement real solutions to clear needs in the local and wider community, with incredible results. Here are some of the most notable achievements this year: CubeCare This entirely student led group raised sufficient funds to provide a rural community in Kanchanaburi with a clean and reliable water supply. A truly amazing achievement! Patana Development Bank A group of students hosted an inter school charity coding conference; the Techathon. This event’s aim was to raise funds for the PDB initiative, who use an international non-profit organisation, “Kiva”, to provide microfinance loans to underprivileged people across the world. Breast Cancer Awareness In collaboration with the PTG students organised “Pink Day” and other events, which raised over 50,000 baht for new local screening clinics set up by the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation. PNP 24-hour Trilympics This annual student organised fundraiser focused this year on raising funds to buy a specialised wheelchair for a 14 year old student with cerebral palsy.

Christmas Toy Drive In this school wide appeal, toys and stationery, kindly provided by the Bangkok Patana community, were donated to the Gift of Happiness Foundation, which aims to improve the lives of poor children. FORDEC Clothes Drive The brainchild of a group of Year 12 students, this highly successful CAS Project donated much needed clothing and stationary to a local community centre for disadvantaged families. Finally, we must congratulate the commitment and perseverance shown by all our students who have been actively engaged in community service this year. Thank you for your enthusiasm, commitment and passion for change.

COMMUNITY ACTION PRIMARY SCHOOL Clare Tomlinson | Primary CAT Coordinator

Kindness rocks with inspirational quotes for Tiger Spirit Day, books and shoe boxes for the Primary Christmas Appeal and themed fundraisers are just a few of the ways that we have supported our local communities in 2018/19. Students are encouraged to take responsibility and earn their donations by helping out around the home. Money raised from our whole school fundraisers is spent on various children’s projects to enhance and improve their lives. The purpose of these events is to educate, inspire and to look into the wider community and think about what it means to be a global citizen. Individual Year groups have supported different organisations through a whole range of activities including: Year 6 students preparing and collecting clothes for communities along the Thai/Cambodian border, Year 5 holding bake sales to support Cambodia Clean water and Year 4 donating solar panels to the Children of the Forest that supports migrant children in Sangkhlaburi. Other events included a sponsored Science Week, Maths Fair and students from a local day care centre come and play and learn alongside Foundation Stage students. We are Active Volunteers!
