Teachers from the Chakkham Khanaton School in Lampoon Province have visited the International School Eastern Seaboard to discuss the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) offered at ISE.
Around 60 members of the faculty and administration from Chakkham Khanaton School, which is east of Chiang Mai, traveled by bus to ISE on March 3. They also visited Thai schools in Rayong Province.
The Thai Ministry of Education is promoting a program where many Thai schools will incorporate an international educational program into their school. The Chakkham School intends to add the IBDP program to its high school. ISE is pleased to work together with the school and will help them as they implement the IB program.
Teachers from Chakkham Khanaton School in Lampoon Province recently visited the International School Eastern Seaboard to discuss ISE’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP).
The guests were greeted by Dr. Robert Brewitt, Superintendent, M.L. Parat Charuchinda, Thai Language teacher, and Timothy Overacker, IB Coordinator. Each gave a talk to the visiting teachers showing the program at ISE as well as an overview of the IBDP.
Dr. Brewitt was pleased with the visit and said, “ISE is happy to support Chakkham Khanaton School to develop their international program.”
Later in the morning, ten of ISE’s Thai students served as guides to show the visitors around the campus. These Thai students will be studying to take the IB Thai Literature A1 examination as part of their IB diploma program.
Vice Director Apichai Thananatthanachon addressed the group and laid out the plans for the new program. He felt that, “ISE has an excellent program and we hope to learn from their teachers and staff.” Two of the teachers, Kedsara Lungkapin and Tawin Muangmek led the visiting teachers as they met with the ISE faculty to discuss curriculum presentations.
It is hoped that a delegation from ISE can travel to Lampoon and further assist with the implementation of this international program.
