1 day ago by Varee International SchoolAt VCIS, we like to recognise the importance of maintaining effort and standards across all subjects and for a prolonged time frame. Demonstrating a consistent positive attitude is valued by our staff and our students alike. We celebrate this by nominating a "VCIS Star of the Month" at the end of every month. We select 1 male and 1 female (where appropriate), from each of the key stages (KS3, KS4, & KS5). Zen (Y10) & Grace (Y8) were just two of the students who were selected and celebrated in January.

1 day ago by Varee International SchoolVCIS students have been demonstrating success, commitment, dedication and outstanding effort in leadership, lessons and extracurricular activities since our return to school in January. January Monthly Fitness Challenge: Our students were challenged with the task of running, cycling or swimming as far as they could in the month of January. Students were asked to attempt to complete a run/swim for Bronze (25km), Silver (50km) or Gold (75km) awards. They were to record results on Strava or other similar tracking apps as evidence of their hard work and commitment to fitness. For those who wanted to complete the task cycling, the distances were three times as much. Bronze (75km), Silver (150km), Gold (225km). Two Varee students went above and beyond this criteria!! The PE department had to create three entirely new levels of award; Diamond (100km), Platinum (125km) & Ruby (150km)! The following students deserve recognition for their dedication to improving their health. Running: Naam-Oon (Y9) 126.73km PLATINUM HJ (Y7) 75.28km GOLD Wantan (Y9) 63.22km SILVER Ryu (Y13) 52km SILVER Swimming: Helene (Y7) 163.9km RUBY
3 days ago by Varee International SchoolOn Friday the 8th of February, Year 11 environmental management students spent an afternoon at the Forest Restoration Unit (FORRU), Chiang Mai University, on Doi Suthep. They learned about the biodiversity of the area, challenges in restoring degraded habitat, and succession in tropical forests. They did their part to assist the efforts of the center by planting seeds and seedlings which will eventually be used to help restore degraded landscapes nearby Chiang Mai. Thank you FORRU for an educational, fun and inspiring afternoon in nature!
