New Academic Year, off to a great start

By Linda Wagoner | Director of Outreach

The new academic year started with games and fun.
The new academic year started with games and fun.

We are excited to tell you that this month Dhammajarinee Witthaya School began the new Academic Year with more new and continuing students from all parts of Thailand.

The new year was launched with a welcome celebration and student orientation that included games, face painting, creative activities and unifying sports activities for all  grade levels.

Active Learning Seminar

In preparation for the new academic year, the school organized an Active-Learning Training Seminar to familiarize all teachers with this hands-on approach to learning. Active-Learning engages students in the learning process, promotes critical thinking, and encourages a deeper understanding of the subject matter. The school is focused on incorporating the active learning method across the school to create a more dynamic and effective learning environment for all students.

Joined Microsoft 365 Education 

Dhammajarinee was very fortunate to join Microsoft 365 Education, enabling the school to gain access to 800 free licenses of Microsoft Office online and 800 free licenses of Microsoft Online protection. Microsoft kindly shared Office training materials with the school, enabling every student to learn Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. 

You have helped graduates like Areeya

Areeya is a graduate of Dhammajarinee School. Her story is similar to that of many Dhammajarinee students.

Areeya came to Dhammajarinee at age 12 from a remote hill-tribe village of Thailand where quality education was not possible. Only 25% of the children finish high school in the hill tribe areas. In her local village, only one teacher instructed 47 students at all grade levels.

In this video (link below), Areeya shares her story of how Dhammajarinee Witthaya School changed her life by enabling her to complete high school.

Planning for Science, Math, and Smart-Garden Training

Dhammajarinee is planning a 3-week intensive science, math, and Smart-Garden training in June with returning STEM expert Dr. Stuart Kohlhagen. 

The Smart-Garden project allows students to learn skills including electricity and electronics; wireless control technologies; developing software for mobile devices; data management and AI; and plant biology, agriculture, and hydroponics.

We have already seen the great impact of Dr. Kohlhagen’s participation in the school:

• a large number of students joining the STEM club

• more graduates than ever before are accepted to university

• many graduates choose STEM majors—including computer engineering, digital design, digital communication, architectural technology, aerospace engineering, mechatronics and robotics, and more. We are excited to continue growing our partnership with Dr. Kohlhagen and providing these opportunities for our students.
