Thai unis visit

Thai universities visit

By Anjali (Languages' Prefect)

On September 27, IB students who are interested in going to Thai universities had the opportunity to attend an event hosted by our sister school REPS.

Around 15 Thai universities attended this event and this gave the IB students a chance to see some of the different university options available in Thailand. It was a useful event for many of the students.
  

On November 9, there will be a trip to Bangkok for IB students to attend the UK Study Exhibition fair. This will be a great chance for the students to learn more about universities in the UK as they will get a chance to speak with over 75 leading universities from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

Taking the IB Diploma at GIS means students have a good chance of attending some of the world's leading universities.

Careers' Day@GIS


PILOTS, doctors and journalists talked about their jobs as part of a successful Careers’ Day at GIS.

Around 200 students, including visitors from GIS Bangkok and REPS, came to the Main Hall on September 27 for the event.

Introduced by Head Student Rachel, the event aimed to give real-life examples of success in various professions and also to inspire students from Year 10 and above who are starting to think about possible professions.

A dozen talks were given by various speakers, including Dr Iain Corness, a Consultant at Bangkok Pattaya Hospital, Mr Stephen Street, who talked about international banking, pilot Tomasz Bankowics and Lonely Planet travel writer Mark Beales. Other topics covered were accounting, teaching in Early Years, a career in the Arts, engineering and science and research.

Students listened to the talks then had a chance to chat and ask questions with the various guests.

Many of the GIS students are currently studying for their IGCSEs or IB Diploma, which will give them a pathway into the world’s leading universities.

IB PRAISES GIS AFTER REVIEW

The International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) has praised GIS following a 5-year review.

The review, which is a standard procedure for all IB World schools, looked at every aspect of how the IB Diploma Programme is run at GIS. This included looking at the curriculum, the school's educational beliefs, its leadership, resources and the teaching and learning that takes place.

The 30,000-word document, written by GIS, was sent off earlier this year and the IBO has now released its findings. 

They found that: 'Based on the findings included in the report, the IB has not identified any matters to be addressed.'

The report also commended GIS in several areas, including how the school promotes Thai language by offering Thai A and also how the IB's learner profile is reflected in several subjects.

IB Co-ordinator Mr Mark Beales said: "It's fantastic news to have such a positive report. This confirms everything that we already believed about GIS - that it offers superb value education and the highest academic levels."

News of the review comes after this year's examination results, where for the second-year running GIS students had a 100 per cent pass rate in the IB Diploma. 

The IB Diploma is the world's leading qualification for 16-18 year olds. It is a challenging course that opens doors to the world's leading universities. 

GIS is the most experienced IB Diploma school in this part of Thailand.
