Inspirational Heathfield Alumni: A Cabin Crew Who Rides A Bicycle to Endless Destinations

Phanatda Waerojruedee (Panda), 26, was one of the pupils who appeared in the spotlight at Heathfield Secondary music band shows.  Having previously shown her confidence and enjoyment in visual arts and playing the drums at school, she has now turned her interests to marathon bicycling and devotes her passion and vocation, to serve as a cabin crew member, at Bangkok Airways.

Phanatda is fun to be around.  She has always been diligent in new creative activities since young as she expressed that at Heathfield International School, “I enjoyed studying Visual Arts a lot. Every time when I studied this subject, I was so excited about what the teacher was going to assign us to do.”

She also had a chance to start off with her first full band show at the school – which gave her excitement and nervousness at the same time.  The result however turned out to be successful because of the supports both from teachers and friends. “I miss playing the drums every time I hear fun music. Maybe in the futu…

Wolves Show Team Spirit in TISAC Athletics 2017

The TISAC athletics began on a wet Monday with myself, Mr Davenport and Mr Mark travelling to the Thai-Japanese stadium in Din Daeng with the U13 and U15 teams. The teams were up against stiff competition in the form of; Charter, Regents, TRAILL, Bromsgrove, St Andrews Dusit, St Andrews 107, Bangkok Christian, St Stephens and Ascot. 


Overall I am proud of how both teams handled themselves on the day as everyone gave 100% and showed great teamwork and camaraderie which is all I can ask for. With the U15 Boys and Girls they had to fill in events at the last minute, which is an example of great courage, and shows an ability to step out of their comfort zone, a skill which will hold them in great stead for future challenges. The U13 Boys and Girls showed great potential, and as a lot of them will still be in the age group next year this gives me great hope for an even better display at next year's TISAC athletics.

On to Tuesday and thankfully the sun was shining again for the U9 and U1…

Alumni : Beam Yanin

Beam


Hi. My name is Beam. I graduated from Heathfield in the year 2015 and decided to go abroad to the U.K. since I was offered a scholarship. I studied A-levels in St. Michael's school and finished the course in late June 2017. Since I left high school, I've been travelling both in London and Wales to explore the area before coming back to Bangkok. I wish to continue studying in the U.K. (this means for university) and gain work experience there. 



What I've realized since I left Heathfield is that there are opportunities everywhere and it comes anytime. Just expect the unexpected and you may end up in places you've never imagined. I chose Economics, Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths as my 5 AS subjects. This is the most common and recommended combination by teachers as it ultimately allows students to change their mind about their university courses they would wish to apply.



For A2 (second year into the course), I dropped chemistry and I advise students to only…

Dean : Thanapat Bekanan

1.Please introduce yourself.
Well, according to my passport, my name is Thanapat Bekanan. However, everyone knows me as Dean in which I always prefer. As is generally known, Thai people have a proclivity for calling each other bynick names, rather than their first or last names. Thus, I think we’d better go with the flow.
2.  What are you doing now?
I’ve literally been struggling to survive an MPhil in International Relations at Oxford University since October 2016 but I am doing well.
3.  When did you start learning in Heathfield? 
It was a long time ago that’s for sure. I wish I could remember. It was probably around 2006.
4.What things remind you when you think of Heathfield?
There are a few things which remind me of Heathfield. One of which is Christmas time. I’ve been in Britain for almost 5 years now. Every single winter, when December approaches, I always think of Heathfield as the Christmas parties at the school were the most unforgettable memories I have.



5. Please tell me what is…
