Looking In, Looking Out: Developing Roong Aroon International School
When Roong Aroon School decided to develop an international program, we expected challenges in merging our Buddhist, holistic and traditional Thai-values based program with the IBO's international perspective and more western-values outlook. The ongoing project has continued to provide more growth opportunities - and self-reflection - than anticipated. As the initial driver of change of the program, Ms James-Wyachai will reflect on her journey of collaboratively developing Roong Aroon International School with her Thai directors and the greater school community. Where coaxing integration of divergent thoughts and methodologies becomes a focus, many questions and opportunities arise.
