HoS Highlights: Happy Songkran!

HoS Highlights: Happy Songkran!

By Ryan Persaud / April 05, 2024 / Head of School Highlights

 Dear VERSO Community,

On 27 March, the Bang Chalong Fire Department was present at VERSO to evaluate our fire evacuation procedures. Previously, we have had two fire drills this school year, and felt adequately prepared to run another drill with the fire department present. The purpose of the visit was to evaluate our procedures and to time how long it takes to exit the buildings. I am pleased to report that we passed our evaluation. Thanks to everyone involved.

Thank you from VERSO+ Activism Club

The donation drive for Second Chance Bangkok has officially ended. Thank you to VERSO+ Activism Club and the two Upper Loop Learning Labs that were responsible for the campaign. Here is a message that the learners would like to share:

"On behalf of VERSO+ Activism Club and Upper Loop Learning Labs, thank you everyone for contributing to the VERSO community's donation drive between February and March. We have received well over a hundred items that will go towards supporting the Second Chance Bangkok social enterprise"


Bangkok Education Fair

This past weekend our team attended the Bangkok Education Fair at the Intercontinental Hotel. There were many families in attendance and this was an excellent opportunity to speak about VERSO and market the school. We were able to make many new connections and have many future visits set with potential new families. A big thank you to our learners Solo, Pu, Moe Moe, Nicky, Nadol, Namin, and Mona for their help at the event. They were excellent representatives for VERSO and the families certainly enjoyed hearing about their firsthand experience.






Informative Coffee Mornings

Thank you to all of the parents who attended our recent Coffee Morning sessions. Digital Citizenship, Generative AI, and Data Protection was a big hit by Dr. Rolly Maiquez, and Careers in 2030, presented by Greg Mason, was extremely informative. If you missed them, you can find the slides on CoCo. Please continue to attend future sessions after the Songkran break.



ShowTimes: Celebrating Learning

We have had several ShowTimes recently as well. Thank you to the parents for supporting our learners, and showing appreciation for their hard work. Specifically EY4-5: People and NatureC1-2: How Can Music, Dance, Stories, and Wellbeing Help us Understand and Respond to Each Other’s Feelings with Kindness?C3-4: How Can I Have a Positive Impact On My Own and Others’ Health?, and C7-8: How Can Humanity Harness Technology and Innovations to Adapt and Thrive in Extreme Environments?






This is a reminder about our VERSO Ignite event taking place on Saturday 27 April.

The expected outcome of The VERSO Venture Center Experience Day is to inspire and empower learners to become more entrepreneurial, equipping them with practical skills and knowledge that can be applied in real-world scenarios.

Additionally, the event aims to educate parents about the importance of entrepreneurship in today's world and how they can support their children in developing these skills. This event is open to learners and parents from other schools as well. We hope to see you there! For details please visit www.verso-ignite.reactor.school .

That's all from me this week before we break for our Songkran holidays. This will be mine and my family's first celebration in Thailand, and we are looking forward to the festivities. Have a wonderful break, and see you all back on campus on Wednesday, 17 April.

Happy Songkran!
