Welcome back from Songkran, we hope everyone had a lovely break! Please read on as we have a few updates and announcements which some will have already been sent via line.
We will be taking additional yearbook photos on Monday 29th April (Unity 1) and Tuesday 30th April (Unity 2). This is for any students who missed the first opportunity in October 2018 and for new students who started in Unity after October 2018.

Class photos will not be redone, only individual photos.

Unity Concord International School hosted our first Songkran Ceremony at UCIS for members of staff. The ceremony was part of the traditional “Rod Nam Dam Hua” ceremony. It was a time of fun together as part of a celebration for the Thai New Year. We would like to thank everyone who participated in making this event such a success. Our school founders A.J. Chugait & AJ Amporn were also surprised with a special Anniversary cake to celebrate their recent 29th wedding Anniversary. The evening was complete with a “Thai Sea Boxing” event that showed the best of the best at UCIS.
To help combat the flu, some of our students recently availed of the opportunity to get immunised. Our Unity 1 students will receive theirs early next month.
In our continuing vigilance to prevent contagious illnesses, it is school policy that a student must remain at home for 24 hours after a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea. Thank you for your cooperation.
The school nurses would greatly appreciate donations of uniforms that you no longer need or use. Please drop them off to either the classroom teacher or the nurse’s office. Thank you.
