The school year 2022 – 2023, with numerous breakthroughs in teaching, has brought about remarkable achievements for WASS and PennSchool community. And to attain these accomplishments, we cannot forget the endless efforts of our students, the parents’ trust and companionship, as well as the dedication and hard work of our teachers over the past year.

In sincere gratitude for the tireless contributions of our teachers, PennSchool and WASS faculty recently participated in a team-building trip to Thailand. The trip was not only an opportunity for teachers to meet, exchange ideas, and connect but also a chance to express gratitude for their efforts in providing positive learning experiences that are inspiring and unleashing the potential of our students.

Besides engaging in experiential activities, bonding, and exploring the Land of Golden Temples, the teachers also attended the Gala Night – 20 YEARS TOGETHER, featuring vibrant musical performances by the teachers themselves and emotional sharing sessions by the School Board and Administration.

The highlight of this year’s Gala Night was the recognition of teachers with excellent performance and significant contributions in teaching, professional development, and management coordination during the academic year 2022 – 2023.
