Dedicated Teachers from Thailand’s Restive South


On Monday 22nd August, a delegation of educators from the Islamic Private Schools Network who work at schools in Thailand’s southern most provinces, Pattani, Yala, and Narathiwat,  visited Chiang Mai.

Thailand’s restive South has seen increasing levels violence since 2001, with militants frequently targeting schools with explosive devices. The teachers that work in this region are doing an essential job, in increasingly difficult circumstances. It was an honour to meet with these dedicated educators and learn about the great work they do.

Demand rises for #InternationalEducation in #NorthernThailand

Originally published in BCCT Link Magazine

While Bangkok remains the centre of Thailand’s buoyant international education sector, with as many as 150 international schools located in and around the capital, demand for high quality English language education is driving the sector’s growth throughout the country, with regional hubs such as Phuket and Chiang Mai experiencing significant growth.

The growth of the international education sector in Northern Thailand can be attributed to the growing aspirations of the region’s middle classes, the perceived inadequacies of the national education systems, the opening of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), in which English is recognized as the economic bloc’s official language, and more recently, demand from Asia-Pacific students opting to learn at international schools in Thailand. Of the international programmes on offer, schools providing a British-based curriculum are proving to be among the most popular, possibly as a result of the association with world renowned academic institutions such as Cambridge University and the fact that IGCSEs and A Level qualifications are accepted by top universities across the world.

In response to the ever growing demand from expatriates and local families, Varee Chiangmai International School, in Northern Thailand, is opening a new international Early Years and international primary school this year, to compliment the already successful international secondary school which opened in 2010. Founder and director of Varee School, Ajarn Varee Patravanich, who opened her first kindergarten in 1978, decided to expand the international school to empower more students with a world-class standard of education and support the growing number of local and foreign parents who realise the need for 21st century learners to receive a fully international education.

For families looking for educational alternatives to Bangkok’s international schools, a visit to a top quality institution in Northern Thailand is strongly advised. For more information about Varee Chiangmai International School, visit the school’s website, or email the international department directly to make an appointment and visit the school in person.
