“Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

Educational “Clownfish” stamp series

Youngster bags 6 medals from Arena Chiangmai Swimming 2006

“Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

Chiang Mai International School’s “Moms in Touch” prayer group recently hosted their annual lunch for our school’s senior class. The women in this group have been faithfully praying all year long for all of our students and staff, but this very special event represents the culmination of their care for our CMIS graduates.
After enjoying a terrific lunch of submarine sandwiches, cake, and chocolate fondue, the seniors were treated to a reading of Dr. Seuss’s “Oh, the Places You’ll Go,” a book that holds many poignant and pertinent sentiments for graduating students. Particularly appropriate for our seniors is the following quote: “You’ll be on your way up! You’ll be seeing great sights! You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.”
The CMIS Graduating Class of 2006 are indeed high fliers who will soon be commencing university studies in the following places: in the U.S. – Duke University, Houghton; Marymount Manhatten College, Wheaton; Lee University, Asbury; San Francisco State University; APU, Clark University, Harding University;
In Canada – Trinity Western University;
In Switzerland – Les Roches;
In Australia – University of Woolongong;
In Thailand – Chulalongkorn University, Mahidol University, Payap University, Chiang Mai University; and
In Korea – Seoul, Yonsei, and/or Koryo Universities.
The areas of study our students will be entering include: political science, engineering, education, health science, international relations, biology, hospitality/hotel management, economics, music performance, graphic design, business management, entertainment media, math and science, art and theatre, travel industry management, humanities, liberal arts, and fine arts.
The entire CMIS community is justly proud of its graduating class of 2006, and to quote Dr. Seuss, “You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So … get on your way!”


Educational “Clownfish” stamp series

“Clownfish” stamp series for kids who love collecting.

Chiangmai Mail Reporters
Central Airport Plaza Department Store together with Thai Post Co. has issued a new stamp series called “Pla Cartoon” (Clownfish), which are colorful and look real. Because it makes it more interesting and more realistic to show the fish in their natural coral habitat, it will attract children who want to study aquatic creatures such as the real clownfish. Those who love collecting stamps will also enjoy this undersea series.
Those who are interested in Clownfish and want to collect this series, can buy them on June 24 – 30 at G Floor, Aquarium Court of Central Airport plaza Department Store.
