New computers

Last year the school was struggling with 8-12 year old computers breaking down and incompatible with the software needs of current classes. Fortunately, in April and May amazing support came for upgrading the computers:

• Dell Computers in Thailand donated 28 excellent computer towers

• Prajomglaw Technology University donated 20 used computers

• An extremely generous supporters donated the necessary funds to purchase 80 new computers.

Dhammajarinee now has enough computers to equip three computer rooms to cover the needs of Primary, Junior High, and High School classes. See photos below.

Teacher’s Active Learning Seminar in April

Active Learning is a teaching and learning process that emphasizes interactive participation in a variety of practices such as analysis, synthesis, brainstorming, case studies, presenting solutions etc. to develop critical thinking and communication skills.

The three-day seminar for all teachers, featuring expert speakers in education from Panyapiwat Institute of Management, focused on Technology, Mathematics and English.

In May students students return

Thailand has made great progress in reducing cases of Covid throughout the country over the last few months, and there is confidence that this trend will consistently continue. With this increase in confidence, the girls were able to return to the school in groups of 70, following all precaution protocols. There are now 1100 students at the school.

As always, we thank you for your support that is creating a bright future not only for the girls at Dhammajarinee but for their future families and communities.
