Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the Junior School of Phuket International Academy Day School.
We have recently been authorised to implement the International Baccalaureate Organisation Primary Years Programme (PYP), the most prestigious and fastest growing curriculum framework in the world! The programme focuses on developing students to become inquisitive, lifelong learners who are well equipped to adapt and contribute positively towards the betterment of our world. To achieve such ambitious goals, it is vital that the teachers are appropriately trained and qualified classroom practitioners. All of our teaching faculty are trained in implementing the PYP and have been employed from around the globe as experts in their specialist areas. Emphasis is placed on developing a strong foundation in numeracy and literacy attainment, while highlighting the sciences through authentic units of inquiry. Furthermore, we provide a wide range of specialist teachers to facilitate the arts (Art, Music and Drama) and specialise in high performance sports programmes taking full advantage of our world class facilities.
Personally, I see it as a privilege and an honour to be associated with such a forward thinking school, and I’m sure you will be too when you come and visit us. I look forward to welcoming you.
Deputy Head and Primary School Principal
