Clowning around for education

Bangkok Preparatory & Secondary School invites parents and children aged between 18 months and six years to the school's Early Years Unit for a morning of fun and activities under the theme "Circus Party".

Bangkok Preparatory & Secondary School is holding the ‘Circus Party’ on Feb 16.

Scheduled for Feb 16 from 10am to noon, this is an opportunity for parents to visit the school, meet the teachers and learn first-hand about the teaching styles and academic programme offered to children at the unit.

Activities include circus-themed arts and crafts, such as making clown shoes, bow ties and hats. The children will also enjoy clown face-painting, decorating cupcakes with clown faces and classic circus games.

Bangkok's popular Clown Eckie will entertain the little ones with his magic shows and tricks, and dazzle them with his very own magical clown tuk-tuk _ the only one of its kind in Bangkok. Not to be missed is the clown parade and prizes given to the best-dressed clown.

The programme of study at Bangkok Prep is based on the National Curriculum of England providing quality education to students from Nursery to Year 13. The school offers a rigorous IGCSE programme to Year 10 and 11 students as a precursor to the Cambridge-approved A Levels studied in Years 12 and 13, thereby preparing students for acceptance to leading universities throughout the world.

A celebration is being held this year to mark the school's 10th anniversary.

The school is located on Sukhumvit Soi 53. Admission is free. Call 02-260-7890, email or visit
