A Primary Teacher is needed for Southern International School Hatyai, a rapidly growing, co-educational Cambridge International School in the prosperous and friendly southern city of Hat Yai in Thailand. We currently offer classes from pre-school to age 16.
The Secondary school follows Cambridge Secondary 1 and IGCSE, whilst in Primary we closely follow the National Curriculum and we use the highly regarded International Primary Curriculum or IPC. We are about to embark on international accreditation for the first time, so our next two years should to be very busy and exciting.Our Primary classrooms are colourful and spacious with air conditioning, interactive whiteboards and full internet access. There are typically ten to fifteen children of mixed abilities in each year group. For children whose English skills are a little behind the class average they can take classes with our EAL teacher either individually or in groups of two or three. We provide teachers with the best English and Maths textbooks from the UK, and you are welcome to request your own.While subjects such as Maths, English and IPC units are taught in the classroom, other lessons such as Music, PE and Art are taught in other parts of the school. If teachers wish to conduct a Science lesson they can make an appointment to use the Secondary Science lab. Field trips are a great way to expand children's horizons and we provide all the help needed for risk assessment and organisation for these trips such as to the museum, historic Songkhla old town or the beach.For break times, outside there is a covered, fully equipped play area for basketball and football, and a shaded garden for the exclusive use of primary students. Our parents are mostly from the growing young professional classes, business leaders and expat workers from the nearby offshore gas companies.Hat Yai in Songkhla province has grown from a small but busy commercial town into a lively but manageable city of a little over a million, surrounded by rice paddies, forested hills and waterfalls. The tourist hot spots of Krabi, Trang and Phuket are easily accessible for long weekend trips, but there are several unspoiled destinations much closer to home. New upmarket bistros and restaurants are springing up seemingly overnight, adding to the cosmopolitan feel of this welcoming city. Accommodation is cheap and varied, from Thai-style houses to newly built, self-contained condominiums with shared swimming pools.Our School is about to enter its third year of operation with over 110 children, mostly in Primary and, due to reorganization, we are seeking a Primary Teacher to join our team in August 2017.We need a caring, compassionate and enthusiastic qualified teacher, B.Ed., PGCE or equivalent, who can speak fluent English.
