Marvin has been unwell this week. He had a sore throat so
I took him to the doctor. The doctor was very nice to Marvin and he gave him
some medicine to make him feel better. Marvin was very brave when the doctor
had to give him a shot too. He said that he didn’t mind because it made
him feel better.
Have you ever had to go to the doctor? Write to Marvin
and tell what happened. You can send your letters to:

Parents had a chance to attend a seminar on children’s
intelligence given by Dr. Chom Chumchuy, child and youth psychiatrist from
the Department of Mental Health, Ministry of Public Health.
The lecture focused on the natural development of
children, the importance of IQ, EQ, MQ, and PQ for children, and how to
bring children up to be smart kids.
More and more parents are interested in this program, and
the children enjoyed themselves as well, because the organizers had set a
Baby Zone and a Kids Zone, where there were toys, dolls, games, and artistic
activities for improving children’s skills.
There was also a booth staffed by the Chiang Mai Ram Hospital providing
free health check-ups for children, the Dumex booth, and a toys booth as
well as the seminar for parents, and the children’s zone.

being assured that everything is perfectly ok.
Face painting, treasure hunts and pony rides were only a
few of the activities that marked the end of two successful years at Prem.
This kind of ‘Fun in the Sun’ is a terrific way for the whole school to
celebrate their accomplishments, get to know each other better and look
forward to seeing each other again on August 13, when the school reopens.
All 240 students worked together in organizing,
supervising and participating in everything that the day had to offer.
