Panyathip International School

 

(KPL) Panyathip International School is expected to open new branch in Savannakhet Province, Director of the school, Mrs Patthana Panyathip told at a press conference in Vientiane Capital on 17 May.

“Panyathip International School was established in 2001.  Our founders hoped students could experience education at international standards, while upholding Lao values and culture. In its first year, the school offered classes from kindergarten to 3rd grade level, with a total of 38 students and twelve teachers,” said Mrs Patthana.

From these humble beginnings, the school has undergone a remarkable transformation.  Since the number of students (including foreign students) has grown rapidly, the school has moved its campus twice, from the first campus in Naxay Village, Saysettha District to the present site in Sapanthong Neua, Sisattanak District.

To accommodate the demand for younger years , a separate Panyathip Kindergarten campus was built in Sapanthong Tai, Sisattanak District.

At present, the school has more than 700 students and more than 100 foreign and local staff.  Each year the school meticulously plans and gives the best in educational resources, environment and facilities for its students and staff.

Panyathip International School is a private institution consisting of an English and Lao medium kindergarten, primary and secondary schools operating under the regulations of the Ministry of Education, Laos.

The primary and secondary schools also offer programmes approved by the University of Cambridge International Examinations.

“Our current programme covers key languages, science subjects, as well as technical and job and professional related subjects highly relevant to the needs of Lao people,” said Mrs Patthana.

The Cambridge International Primary Programme gives schools a framework to develop numeracy, literacy and science skills in young children aged 5 – 11 years.  It helps teachers to assess children’s learning as they progress and assistance in curriculum development.

The Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme follows the same pattern.  It builds on the primary stage and provides a vehicle for success for students approximately 11 – 14 years.  It develops children’s knowledge and skills in Mathematics, English and Science, as well as studying History, Chinese, Geography, ICT, Art, Physical Education, Music, and Life Skills.

Cambridge checkpoint tests during the Lower Secondary Programme provide detailed feedback on students’ strengths and weaknesses before they move into the 14 – 16 year old period of external examinations, including IGCSE.

In the secondary school additional subjects are included on the timetable as students move upwards from the lower secondary school to when students are approximately 14 to 17 years of age, when they may sit for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in the subjects including, English as a second language, Chinese as a foreign language, mathematics, combined science (chemistry, biology, physics), I.C.T, Environmental Management (geography, some history, social studies and the humanities) and Business Studies.
