Professional orientation is an important part of our school program and therefore the students of our Grade 9 took part in an internship. For two weeks they plunged into real work life, which demanded a lot of independence! Apart from three students, all stayed in Bangkok. One student went to Phuket and two students even flew to Switzerland. All of them discovered interesting fields of work: hotel and tourism, medical services, journalism and education.
All companies visited by the teachers Mr. Nährich and Mr. Schuhmacher were satisfied with our young interns. After two weeks they came back in their school uniforms again, deeply satisfied with themselves and rich with precious experiences from work life. The students presented these experiences and their internship portfolios to parents, friends, students and teachers on Wednesday, 22 March 2017 in the school’s music room. The evening was a success for the students of Grade 9 and was a great occasion to present the internship program to the students of Grade 8, who will take part in this important extra-curricular learning activity in February 2018.
Secondary School Iceskating and Bowling Trip
All students from Grades 7 – 12 of RIS Swiss Section – Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok took part in our annual iceskating event on Tuesday, January 19th, 2016. Together with their teachers they once again visited the ice rink at the Mega Bang Na Shopping Mall. All students and their teachers enjoyed the unique chance to experience “winter” here in tropical Thailand. For the first time some of our students had the chance to choose playing Bowling instead of iceskating. They also had a lot of fun.
We all look forward to our next trip in 2017!
