Learning in primary at Roong Aroon school is centered around the core Buddhist philosophy of awareness and reflection to bring mindfulness as the children expand their understanding. Each level of primary will organize the learning through primary themes that integrate the real situation of relevant issues. This issue is developed through a series of questioning, investigating and reflecting prompting an inquiring mind.
The students are led to a variety of hands-on experiences where they are able to discover the essence of the situation. Through a variety of skills and tools, incorporating a variety of subjects including language, maths, science, social studies as well as arts and music, the child develops an understanding of the theme from a variety of perspectives emphasizing the interrelationship of knowledge. Importantly, through the process of investigation, the children are developing their personal sense not only in their relationship with the theme but further discovering themselves through this work-based approach. To allow the students to fully realize their own potential, the teacher allows the opportunity for the children to develop their individual projects which can expand on areas of interest in the theme. In this outcome, the students create a deeper understanding of their relationship with the knowledge, their interest and their own inner development as they organize their own interest, understanding and expression.
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.
