On Friday 14th September, BISP Primary School students held a Wai Kru assembly to honour their teachers. The assembly was a fun mixture of Thai culture (including traditional dance and stylised Muay Thai moves) and quizzes revealing a little of the teachers’ personal lives. Students joined together to give the Student Pledge, affirming their intention to be diligent students, and thanked their teachers both in song and through the presentation of delightful floral tributes.

Mr Page, the Primary School Principal, closed the assembly by thanking the children on behalf of all the teachers, highlighting the importance of working hard and doing our best, and pointing out how such an occasion as this embodies the key primary attributes of respect and kindness.
