  • Student Support Services | Australian International School Bangkok

    STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES At AISB, academic achievement is balanced by the school’s emphasis on personal growth and socio-emotional development. Students are challenged and encouraged to discover their individual interests and abilities by teachers committed to developing their students as well-rounded individuals who are confident, creative and collaborative members of the school community. Student Support Services: About Us EAL PROGRAM - ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE There is a full time EAL teacher on each campus. These teachers assess the language learning needs of all students for whom English is not their native language; they develop appropriate curriculum aligned programs to assist non- English speakers; they work closely with the Homeroom teachers and the families and when students reach and independent level of communication in English, they graduate from the program. ​ The Language & Literacy levels have a strong focus to begin on the development of ‘spoken-language’. As students acquire more skills, the focus shifts to the development of more ‘written-like’ language. ​ General English: 3 times a week Intensive English: 5 times a week ​ The duration of our EAL program is 45 minutes per class with a maximum of 6 students in each class. LS - LEARNING SUPPORT The learning support department was created for cases where a child may need additional support to reach their full potential. The aim of the Learning Support Department at AISB is to ensure that these student’s are provided with the appropriate environment and tools that they need to access the curriculum and continue growing in their learning. ​ Our guiding principles include: respecting confidentiality, focussing on strengths to overcome weaknesses and nurturing students as individuals. ​ The Learning Support Department functions by: Providing targeted 1-1, small group, and in-class support Creating Individual Learning Plans that outline the learning strategies and learning goals Communicating with parents, administration, teachers, and students to ensure that the learning plan is implemented and updated Supporting teachers with differentiation strategies, implementing accommodations, and providing resources Providing referrals for external assessments as needed ​ ​ ACCESS AND INCLUSION PROGRAM Our Access and Inclusion program helps students with identified learning disorders as well as students who are seen as needing extension in their academic work ​ As students progress through academic year groups, learning becomes more complex and some students may show that they need intervention and support for identified Learning Support needs. These needs can manifest in many ways, such as dyslexia, for example or other identifiable learning disorders which cause issues for the student’s learning progress. ​ The school's Access and Inclusion teacher provides help to the teachers of the student and to the student, in some cases psycho-social assessments are conducted by outside specialist services who can provide therapy in various areas of special need, such as Speech therapy and Occupational therapy. In every case, the outside providers work with the school’s Access and Inclusion teacher, the Homeroom teacher and the parents in a collaborative way. Student Support Services: Activities

  • IGCSE FAQs | Australian International School Bangkok

    IGCSE Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): What is the IGCSE? The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. It attracts almost 500,000 entries from 144 different countries every year. The IGCSE is designed to be taught as a two-year course beginning in Year 9 and culminating in external examinations in Year 10. In some subjects there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making the IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities. Students can enter examinations for the level that is most appropriate for them and this need not be the same across all subjects. Cambridge IGCSE is an international passport to progression and success. It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide as evidence of academic ability. Cambridge IGCSE provides the perfect springboard to the Cambridge Advanced stage, typically for learners aged 16 to 19 years, as well as the International Baccalaureate diploma and other post-16 routes. Within Cambridge Advanced, learners can choose from a range of 55 Cambridge International A Level subjects. Cambridge IGCSE helps improve learner performance by developing skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving. ​ ​ How are the students assessed in the IGCSE? Cambridge IGCSE assessment takes place at the end of the course and can include written, oral, coursework and practical assessment. This broadens opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning, particularly when their first language is not English. In many subjects there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making Cambridge IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities. Grades are benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade. Cambridge IGCSE examination sessions occur twice a year, in June and November. Results are issued in August and January. ​ What does core and extended curriculum mean? The core curriculum is based on an overview of the subject and is suitable for students expected to achieve grades C to G. The extended curriculum is more challenging and designed for students who are expected to achieve grades A* to C. This is in line with the School’s focus on differentiation and students can choose either stream according to their ability. Students will generally make that choice in Year 10 after consultation with their parents and teachers. Beforehand we will teach all students the extended curriculum. ​ How are the exams marked and graded? Some exams are marked on paper and some (such as multiple-choice exams) are marked automatically by a computer. But for any exam, every student’s work is marked in the same way. Cambridge examiners are teachers or experts in their subject, and they are carefully selected and trained. It is vital that they all mark to the same standard so that they can award the right mark to every student every time. After all the marking has been done, grades are set. They use a mixture of statistical evidence and expert judgement to agree on grade boundaries. Exam papers can vary slightly in difficulty, so care is taken to set the grade boundaries in the right place, so students don’t get a lower grade just because the paper they sat was more difficult than the year before. ​ ​ Does the IGCSE prepare the students for further study? The IGCSE provides the perfect springboard to the Cambridge International AS and A levels, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and all Higher School Certificates in Years 11 and 12. The IGCSE is also used as a benchmark for entry into many UK universities. Does my child get to choose the subjects they study? There are over 70 subjects available at Cambridge IGCSE, and schools can offer them in any combination. At AISB, the first cohort is very small which will limit the amount of choice the students can make. However, course selection can be influenced by results in previous reports, discussion of student’s strength and weaknesses, interest in subject area and career aspirations. How much will it cost? Cambridge International charges an entry fee per syllabus per student. Schools usually also add an administration fee which includes the transportation of exam materials to and from the UK. The amount is approximately THB 2,500 per subject. ​ What does my child receive at the end of the course? Your child will receive an embossed certificate which can be used in a student portfolio for employment and further study. IGCSE FAQs: Text

  • Reopening FAQs | AISB

    AISB SAFE RETURN TO CAMPUS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Select from the categories below or use the search bar. Will we be having a staggered start when beginning On-site Learning? Yes. To ensure that all students have the opportunity to become familiar with the new systems in place to help protect our community, we will, for the first few days, be bringing in different year groups on different days to allow us to manage the procedures and effectively show them to students. The year groups will return as follows over the first 3 days back in school: Soi 20 Campus Weds 3/11: Year 1 students will return Thurs 4/11: Nursery, Kindergarten and Foundation students will return Soi 31 Campus Weds 3/11: Year 1 and Year 6 students will return Thurs 4/11: Year 2 and Year 5 students will join our Year 1 and Year 6 students on-site. Fri 5/11: Year 3 and 4 will return (all year levels will be on-site). Secondary school students will not be returning in this coming week, with further announcements to be made once a start date is confirmed. Will the students have to swipe in? All students on Soi 31 and Soi 31 Secondary will have a scan card which they will use to swipe in and out of the campus. Bag tags will be provided to attach the swipe card to younger student’s bags. Children on Soi 20 will not. How can we get the cards or bag tags? Swipe Cards and bag tags can be collected from school ahead of the re-opening of the school to the student. These are to be collected from the Clarendon window (Soi 31). We will advise when they are available. What will the classrooms look like? Students and teachers will be wearing masks in class at all times; The teachers will frequently be reminding the student about personal hygiene, especially washing their hands and the need for distancing to prevent the spread of illness. Every classroom will have a cleaning kit and hand sanitiser. Before and after all breaks students will sanitise their hands and also if they move to a different classroom for a specialist lesson. The teachers will encourage the student to clean their work surface throughout the school day. Classroom doors and, where safe to do so, class windows will be kept open for part of the day to encourage air flow through the learning spaces. Fixed seating (using a seating plan) will be provided to help trace student contact. We will keep this seating plan in all learning spaces and when eating. Can we still borrow books from the library? The library be open to those who return on-site to school. Can the student bring a bag to school? Yes. The student can bring a bag in with them. This should carry essential items only- water bottle, hat, spare face mask; along with anything needed for lessons that day, such as swimming gear. Will my child need to be Covid 19 tested before returning to school? Yes. To help minimise and monitor levels of infection, all students must be tested with an Antigen Test Kit (ATK) before returning to school. This must be once (1x) per week. We have just been notified that the nasal test or the saliva test can be used. Note: Nursery students do not need to do the ATK What is an ATK? An ATK is an Antigen Test Kit that screens people for Covid 19. It is not as effective as the RT-PCR Test and so is only a screening test, not a conclusive test. There are nasal ATKs and saliva ATKs. All ATKs must pass FDA standards and over 50 brands have been approved. They are sold in pharmacies and retail outlets. Where can I get an Antigen Test Kit (ATK)? Antigen tests are available from Boots Pharmacies and from MedPlus clinic (they are cheaper at Medplus). The school will sell ATKs for 90THB but will require parents to buy for 2 weeks at a time. We will provide an order form and bank details to transfer payment into. How do we conduct the ATK? What if I have difficulty? To enter the school premises, a nasal swab, or a saliva test as part of the ATK test, will need to be completed to help reduce the risk for our whole school community. We are unable to administer this test on your child, thus it must be done at home. Most test kits come with links to tutorial videos to help you administer the test correctly. There are also some examples of how to use these test kits on YouTube, but please check for any tutorial videos on the packs you purchase as they may differ slightly. Please note: You can use either a saliva test or a nasal test. How will I inform the school of my child’s ATK result? Take the test every Sunday and Wednesday evening – after 6.00pm. This means a parent can record their child’s test for Monday at any point after 6:00 pm on Sunday and their child’s test for Thursday at any point after 6 pm on Wednesday. NB: Tests are not be taken before 6.00 pm on a Sunday and Wednesday evening. Once you have taken the test, write your child’s name on the test strip and the date. Take a photo of the test strip. Send the photo via the Year Level ATK link, making sure you complete all questions on the link. NB: The link will always remain the same but each year level will have a different link. The latest we can accept a test result being forwarded to school is 6am on a Monday and 6am on a Thursday. Please send it on the Sunday and Wednesday evening. What if I forget to send in the ATK result for my child? Your child will not be allowed to enter school. If he/she arrives at school unaccompanied, he/she will be taken to the Isolation room until you pick him/her up. If accompanied by a parent or Home Helper your child will be asked to return home. You are asked to test your child at home. You may then send in the negative test result, inform the school via phone that you have sent the result and then may return to school that day. What if I forget to send in the TST result for my child? Your child will not be allowed to enter school. If he/she arrives at school unaccompanied, he/she will be taken to the Isolation Room (Care Room) until parents are able to confirm a Low risk TST and send in this confirmation via the Year Level Screening link. The child’s scan card will then be activated. If accompanied by a parent or Home Helper your child will be asked to return home or stay off site until the TST result can sent via the Year Level Screening link, be verified and the child’s scan card activated. How long will screening with ATKs and TST be required to access school? We will follow the screening requirements until we receive further directions from the MoPH and OPEC. Does my child have to be Covid 19 vaccinated to attend school? The Ministry of Public Health currently provides Covid 19 vaccinations to children aged 12-17. We ask children in this age range to be vaccinated, however they can attend school if not vaccinated. Do I need to fill in the Health and Travel declaration form again? Yes just prior to opening on-site all families will be asked to complete the form. What is Thai Save Thai? (TST) Thai Safe Thai is a website that allows you to log in and after completing a series of questions it assesses your risk as Normal, Low Risk, High Risk, Severe Risk. You must complete this every day. Firstly you will need to register. https://savethai.anamai.moph.go.th/main.php You register the Establishment as Australian International School Bangkok (โรงเรียน นานาชาติ ออสเตรเลีย กรุงเทพ) if your child attends Soi 31 or Soi 31 Secondary or Aucksara International School if your child attends Soi 20.

Yr. 7 first, then Yr. 8, then Yr. 9, then Yrs.10,11,12 to allow classes to distance. What do I do if my child tests positive with the ATK at home? If your child tests positive with an ATK, it is important not to panic but to remain calm and then; 1) Do not come to school. Re-test with an ATK after two hours to help rule out a possible false-positive result. Should this also show a positive result, take your child for an RT-PCR at your preferred hospital or Medpark Hospital. Or 2) Immediately take your child for an RT-PCR at your preferred hospital or Medpark Hospital. Please inform the school via email if your child has a positive ATK (after the second ATK if you intend to do a second test). Then inform the school again of the result of the RT-PCR test. Soi 31 Campus: (nurse31@australianisb.ac.th) Soi 20 Campus: (nurse.soi20@aiustralianisb.ac.th) Following an RT-PCR test result, the medical staff at the hospital will guide you through the correct course of treatment. What happens if a family member or Household staff tests positive, or we have close contact with a positive case?" (a) If someone within your household tests positive for COVID, and they have had contact with your child, your child must remain at home for 14 days and be tested with an ATK on days 1, 4 and 14. You must inform the school immediately. (b) If someone in your household becomes a high-risk person (due to exposure to someone who is infected) and they have had contact with your child, your child must remain at home for 14 days. You must inform the school immediately Your child to be tested with an ATK on days 1, 4 and 14. Each time your child takes an ATK test (ie; Day 1, 4 and14) you need to photo graph the test results (make sure you put the date and child’s name on the test strip first) and send the photo and information through the Year Level ATK link. What medical facilities do you have at school to deal with a suspected case? We have created an Isolation room (Care room) where students displaying symptoms of COVID can be moved to. The student will wait here with the school nurse until their parents come to collect them. This room is thoroughly cleaned after the student is picked up. What happens if a child in school has symptoms of COVID? The student will immediately be taken to the nurse. If the symptoms could indicate a COVID infection, the nurse will take the student to the Isolation care room, take their temperature and contact their parents. Parents will come and collect their child, along with any siblings. On arrival at home, an ATK should be conducted or you can take your child to hospital for a medical opinion. Please inform the school of the result of the initial ATK and then of the RT-PCR if one is conducted. Please do so via email. Soi 31 Campus: (nurse31@australianisb.ac.th) Soi 20 Campus: (nurse.soi20@australianisb.ac.th) Negative Test Result If the test is negative, you should continue to monitor their symptoms. The parents are to provide another negative test result after two days to allow for the child’s return to school if the symptoms are gone. Positive Test Result If a test is taken and is positive, the parents need to take the child to Hospital for the RT-PCR test and work with the hospital /medical authorities on the correct treatment for their child. What happens if there’s a case in my child’s class? If a family reports a positive ATK result for their child, the parents of that child’s class would be contacted and the class will immediately be closed for 3 days to allow deep cleaning to take place, along with other spaces the child has spent time in. Should we receive confirmation that a child has tested positive after an RT-PCR test, the school will immediately inform parents of every student in that class and move the class to Remote Learning for a total of 14 days. The parents of any other student deemed low risk for infection will also be informed so they can monitor and test their children using ATK tests. How will school support my child if they test positive? If a child tests positive with an ATK, the school can advise parents on the next steps to take in terms of obtaining a RT-PCR test. If your child is well enough to attend school Remotely, we will arrange for him/her to have Remote Learning. What actions will be taken to ensure that there is no stigma from a child/family testing positive? Some students may be anxious as they return to the classroom. Teachers will be preparing materials to support the transition of students into school and these will be delivered in Health lessons. We will also cover issues such as the need for sensitive responses when a friend or someone in their family has contracted COVID 19. Are parents allowed into school? There will be restricted access to the campus for parents. Only parents with a prior appointment (and who have taken an ATK – bring to school to verify and a TST assessment) will be allowed on campus. Will I still be able to make payments at Accounts? We ask that all accounts be paid using online payments. How can I meet my child’s teacher? You will need to make an appointment to visit the class teacher onsite. You can book an appointment via the teacher’s email. You will need to bring a negative ATK result and declare a Low Risk and below TST assessment. Zoom meetings are encouraged. How can we get the cards or bag tags? Swipe cards and bag tags can be collected from school ahead of the re-opening of the school to the student. These are to be collected from the Clarendon window (soi 31). We will advise when they are available. What’s happening with lunches and snacks? Snacks will be served in the student’s classroom and will be hand held snacks such as fruit pieces and biscuits. Snacks will be individual and served to the student by the staff, not taken from a shared plate. All students can bring a lunch from home or use the school lunch service (at cost) Please be aware that we do not allow student to share food and as we are a Nut Free school, we ask you not to pack any nuts or products containing nuts. Screens will remain on the tables to help protect the student while they have their masks off to eat. Classes will be rostered into the dining room, one class at a time or will eat in their own classroom. All students must bring their own spoon and fork every day. Any other questions? If you have any other questions regarding the return to the physical school, please contact either your child’s class teacher or Sheridan Musto – Head of Nursery Laura King - Head of Primary Neil Robinson – Head of Secondary Brenton Hall – School Director My child was temporarily withdrawn from Remote Learning or we deferred their start date. How do we return to school? We have surveyed parents to get an indication of how many students will return to school. We will re-survey once we have our date to re-open, to confirm your child’s attendance on-site. Once you confirm your intention to return on-site, our Admissions Department will confirm the school place with you and your child’s start date. Detailed information will then be sent to you. Will Remote Learning continue if we choose to keep our children at home? Our preliminary survey showed that most (90%) of students will return to On-site learning. We anticipate that we will assign one teacher from each year group to temporarily continue running Remote Learning. Children who remain working from home will be allocated to this teacher, who will not necessarily be their current classroom teacher. What if I choose Remote Learning but change my mind and want to return on-site. You can choose to return to on-site learning at any time BUT we do require 3 days notice so that we can organize your entry into a class and the teachers can prepare for your child. Please inform us via email: suzete.liwanag@australianisb.ac.th - soi 20 campus jade.villanueva@australianisb.ac.th - soi 31 campus We aren’t in Thailand. How can my child keep up with work? We have a number of families who are not in the country. They will continue with Remote Learning with the same arrangements that they currently have until the end of Term 1. Will the children still do language lessons/ Thai lessons? Language lessons will take place as normal. Teachers will create fixed seating plans for each class. This way we will have a record of where children have been sitting in the case of a positive case of Covid-19. After School Thai lessons for Thai students will commence in the second week that Onsite begins again. Will music lessons still take place? Music lessons will take place as normal. Teachers and students will use face masks when singing. Will the children be swimming? For the first week back in school, the students will not be swimming. This will allow us some time to help them adjust to life back in school and the new routines. Will PE be going ahead as normal? Yes PE will continue as scheduled and students should wear their PE uniform to school when they have a PE lesson. Will there be ASA and Sports Training? Initially, we will not be conducting in school After School Activities (ASAs) or after-school Sports Training.
