Buds International School’s Purpose, Aims and Goals
Set in an Idyllic village in the heart of Phuket, surrounded by greenery and a freshwater lake, lies an International school with a difference. Oak Meadow International has easy road access, virtually no traffic around or near the school, was founded on the following beliefs: We believe that all children deserve an education regardless of their family’s financial standing. We aim to achieve our goals by good financial management and a stable pricing system. Where our parents can be rest assured that price fluctuations are not part of our school policy. We believe that religion and political beliefs play no part in our curriculum, school management or school ethos. Students are taught tolerance, understanding, respect for oneself and others as well as parents and teachers. Discipline and routine go hand in hand with our belief that some systems disregarded by many still have a part to play in what kind of citizens our students will become one day. Pride in one’s school, a good work ethic and a willingness to contribute to society are all traits that we would like to instill, while maintaining a nurturing, caring and loving environment.
Our basic goal is to help your child achieve a great head start in today’s world by giving them a good basis of English and developing their social skills with both their peers and the teachers and adults on the staff. At Buds International School, we will help your child learn English in a structured, planned environment. Math, science, arts and crafts, as well as Thai language are also taught. Whenever possible we communicate with the children in English.
We also strive to do fun things in groups to teach our children how to get along with and relate to others in their own age group, as well as get along our adult teachers. This of course helps develop the children’s social skills that are so important in today’s society. At the same time we try to make sure that the children really enjoy their time and experience here at the school by having as much fun as possible while still learning. Our physical activities are designed to further develop our students’ fine motor skills. We also offer a Swimming class to children three years and above which takes place Wednesday through Friday and is at a local public swimming pool. Of course the safety of our children is always uppermost in our mind; among other things we have a locked gate, padded play areas, and a trained nurse on the staff. We are focused strictly on providing our children with a great head start in life both in our nursery and kindergarten. We do not provide overnights or do evening and or weekend daycare.
