Grade 10 and 11’s Drama Presentation
On the 8th and 9th of March, the assembly hall was transformed into a theatre world: 10 Ways to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse (by 10N), Game of Tiaras (by 10G), Beauty and the Wimp (by 11G),and Snow White through the Looking Glass (by 11N) were all on stage in front of the whole secondary school and a portion of elementary.
High school art electives also experienced aspects of stage production by constructing theatrical backdrops and props. The plays themselves are told through make-believe yet empathetic themes the juniors and sophomores had put together. Inspired by this quarter’s drama presentation, a Drama club, where students can self-express through various forms of art, is underway for next school year! –By Moon, 10G
Niva’s Charity Run was held at Nawamin Pirom Park on the 10th of March 2017. It started at 7:30 in the morning untill 12 noon. All the Niva students, teachers, and parents were invited to participate in our charity run. Also, by purchasing a “Run for a Reason” T-shirt, we were able to collect money for two charities in Thailand, namely “The Peace Charity Foundation” and “Foster House Ban Tab Kwang Foundation”. The purpose of the Niva Charity Run was to help charity organizations with their needs and also to enjoy the activities while making valuable memories with friends, family, and teachers. It was such a nice day and a great experience for all who came that day. I look forward to next year’s Charity Run.

Student Government President of 2005-2006
The NIVA alumni highlight for this issue is one of our brightest graduates, Chompoo, who works as a Customer and Sales Support Specialist at Google’s regional offices in Singapore. Chompoo graduated with a degree in Bio- Nano Engineering from Chulalongkorn University and got a job at Thomson Reuters as a technical support specialist even though her university training was not in a technical field.
“Thomson Reuters looks for bright and capable people and trains them to their advantage and I was willing to take that challenge and now it is Google. I was also the SG president at NIVA when I was graduating in 2006; it was a life changing opportunity.” says Chompoo.
“Don’t limit yourself to what you know and what you learned, explore! Give yourself a chance to advance in everything that opens up for you . You never know what heights you can reach.” Quoted in her words.
From the recent trip of Mr. Anthony and Ms. Nikki –Reported by: Marie Kishi, Senior
Our Nursery and Kindergarten students learned many things about sea life during their field trip to Ocean World on February 24th. Ocean World is the largest indoor ocean park in Asia and many of the sea creatures and animals from around the world are found there.
The students were privileged to experience the wonders of the sea. They also witnessed the penguin show, enjoyed a shark-feeding show, and experienced walking through a glass tunnel that was surrounded by live sharks and exotic fish.
This year the Kindergarten students had a blast celebrating Chinese New Year!
The students began the celebration by making red roosters out of paper cups and red construction paper….it was so cool. Ms. Tang oriented the students with the animal this year and Ms. Fang made sure the roosters could make clucking sounds!
After making the Year of the Rooster items, students sang Chinese songs and danced in their classrooms. At the end Ms. June read all the children a Chinese story-KG students said it was the best Chinese New Year ever!!!
The NIVA Kindergarten is well on their way to figuring out what they want to do when they grow up! Students in the Kindergarten had an absolute ball dressing up as the adults they hope to become.
There were firemen and policemen, businessmen and scientists who all were able to explain in English which direction they plan to go in after they finish school.
After the description, students played games and danced as a part of the Children’s Day activity.
At the end, prizes were given to those students who were able to quote the Children’s Day slogan….this year the prizes were books and the students were THRILLED!
This year’s High School camp was bigger, better, and more exciting than ever before!
Students grades 9-12 went to Kanchanaburi for 2 nights and 3 days of fun and adventure. Students enjoyed activities ranging from paintballing to ropes courses, and trust-building exercises and games of all sorts. All emotions were on display at camp this year; from fear to joy, students learned that camp is a roller coaster of fun. By the time everyone arrived back at NIVA on Thursday night, students and teachers alike were exhausted and elated at what was certainly the best high school camp in recent memory!
Niva Middle School Gryphons were invited to participate in KhaoYai U13 Basketball Competition. The selected squads were fortunate enough to play against challenging opponents.
During the two- day competition, the boys defeated the other teams all the way through the final. The experience helped them bring the Championship back to school on January 15 th.
At the same time, we cannot ask the girls more for their amazing spirit and enthusiasm in each game. Both the boys and the girls showed the best sportsmanship throughout the games.
The grades 1 and 2 students were assisted by their parents and teachers in creating krathongs for Loy Krathong during the first and second period on Monday, November 14, 2016.
We didn’t have a big celebration at school, but it was also good to remember Thai tradition.[ngg_images source=”galleries” container_ids=”4″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_thumbnails” override_thumbnail_settings=”0″ thumbnail_width=”240″ thumbnail_height=”160″ thumbnail_crop=”1″ images_per_page=”20″ number_of_columns=”0″ ajax_pagination=”0″ show_all_in_lightbox=”0″ use_imagebrowser_effect=”0″ show_slideshow_link=”0″ slideshow_link_text=”[Show slideshow]” template=”/home2/ab3226/public_html/niva.ac.th/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/ngglegacy/view/gallery.php” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]
