A Message to our GIS Parents from the Principal…

Dear Parents,

Following the recent Ministry of Education (MoE) announcement dated 26 October 2011 addressed to all schools from the Secretary General of the Office of the Private Education Commission (OPEC), it is mandatory that all schools in Bangkok close from 1-14 November and re-open 15 November 2011.

However individual schools are able to request that they open at an earlier date if the flooding has had a minimal effect on the pupils and staff of their school. Therefore I intend to apply to open the school on Monday 7th November as soon as we are certain that the school and the local area will remain free from the effects of flooding.

During this, and any subsequent period of school closure I can assure you that the teachers will be providing your child with online learning opportunities that should serve as a temporary replacement for the excellent education that is normally provided. As soon as school re-opens we will review the online learning opportunities provided and then provide a further programme of study to ensure that your child does not miss out on the education that they are entitled to.

Please contact me directly should you have any further concerns and I will keep you informed as soon as there are any further developments.
