The children (aged 12-17) now have strong wills and their own views on a variety of topics. They are feeling the surge toward adulthood, yet still, need assistance as they fine-tune their adjustment from childhood to maturity. It is time for them to set goals in their life derived from their developing awareness of their own true potential. The students are encouraged to come to this understanding through more complex and insight-provoking activities that are based on real situations. They learn to recognize the link between their intellectual and spiritual growth, to allow for the emergence of a young adult who is ready to enthusiastically make a positive contribution to society.
In high school, besides academics, the development of life skills such as taking care of themselves and their classroom, preparing school lunch and all kinds of community services has to receive a lot of attention.
World crisis issues are designed to be the theme for students to learn through Projects. Project-based learning motivates inquiring minds starting with ‘the problem’ that leads to finding solutions. Academic subjects are an integration of academic content into real-life situations. The learning comes in various forms: research, experimentation, information/knowledge management, systematic thinking skills, collaboration and using communication technology effectively.
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.
