Si Ri Panya International School is a member of Eco-Schools which is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life. Schools work towards gaining one of three internationally recognised awards – Bronze, Silver and the Green Flag award, which symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity.
Si Ri Panya International School is currently working towards achieving our silver award. In order to achieve this award the students are undertaking the following:
The students set up an Eco-Committee consisting of students, teachers, parents and wider community who met on a regular basis to discuss environmental issues. These meetings were run by the students themselves under the leadership of Teacher Faye Reading.

The Eco-Committee completes an Environmental Review covering the Eco-Schools ten topics:
Food & the environment
Health & welbeing
Results of the review are discussed by the Eco-Committee and communicated with the whole school through their excellent student-led environmental assembly and eco-notice board.
The Eco-Committee produces an Action Plan highlighting their campaigns.
LINKING TO THE CURRICULUM
Environmental issues are covered within curriculum work in Year groups including in Thai, Mathematics, English, Geography and Science lessons to name but a few.
INVOLVING THE WHOLE SCHOOL AND WIDER COMMUNITY
Your child's long-term future is our priority. At Si Ri Panya we recognise the impacts of climate change and the importance of respecting our environment.
The Si Ri Panya Eco-Committee are a group of staff, parents and students from all year groups who share a common passion: saving the environment.
The Eco-Committee will work to develop an Eco Code that the school will agree, adopt and display in the classrooms.
On behalf of the Environmental Committee, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who is involved in helping Si Ri Panya on our mission to achieve Silver Award Status!
