The background of all learning in Kindergarten at Roong Aroon school is the core Buddhist philosophy of awareness and reflection. Teachers practice meditation and mindfulness, which enhances the relationship between the teacher and the children and classroom management. Teachers together with students meditate regularly as well. Kindergarten intends to stimulate deep learning through the rich and active learning environment including nature, seasons and festivals, daily routine and activities. Through mixed-age groups, children experience a challenging, more family-like setting.
Project work addresses deep learning, learning by doing and communicative learning. Listening to the children carefully, teachers get to know the questions and topics which their students are interested in. Carefully thinking them through, raising them with the children again and observing their reaction, teachers may find a topic that can become the starting point for a project. The teacher is the facilitator of the project, who asks questions and guards the meaningful process, as well as supports the children in creating activities and outcomes. Intensive communication and reflection open the door to deeper integrated learning. Project work in kindergarten creates the base for confident, self-directed learning in Primary and High school.
Roong Aroon school is a private not-for-profit organization. It was set up and accredited in 1997. The school is composed of three independent departments, Mixed kindergarten (ages 4-6), the primary school (grades 1-6), and the secondary school (grades 7-12). We are excited to begin development of an international programme, which is planned to open Years 7, 8 and 9 for the 2020-21 school year.
Since the school promotes a cooperative working team, each department is separately managed by a headmistress/principal who can initiate her own team’s considerable initiatives from teacher meetings linking different levels or from a Core Subject team approach.
Based on the concept of the holistic learning process, Roong Aroon aims to provide a more natural environment and to promote creative practices that help encourage children at each age level to attain their own learning potential. Subjects are integrated into project-based learning modules, each over one trimester. Teaching and planning is collaborative, and there are frequent presentation and performance opportunities for students to demonstrate their achievements.
The school is situated on fifty rai (twenty acres) of land on the outskirts of Bangkok in the Bangkhuntien district. The site is remote from the crowded and dense inner city. The buildings are grouped by department, and are nestled in a natural environment, with surroundings that are landscaped with abundant and airy greenery, fully accessible to all the students. Most of the area is developed to cater to both outdoor and indoor learning activities, supplemented by regular off-campus field study. Additionally, the school works diligently to have a low environmental impact. A schoolwide, multifaceted recycling programme has been in place for over a decade with continual improvements.
Our school is a thriving community. Parents, teachers, and staff participate closely together to create a variety of lively and supportive activities. We believe that by maintaining a warm atmosphere among our own team of teachers, workers, parents, and children, the growth of a cultivated community is certain to be developed and sustained. In this way, our students understand the importance of community and their responsibility in maintaining a healthy, productive and inclusive community.
