Boarding

SEELOS RESIDENCE

The Seelos Residence is a small on-campus boarding facility staffed by qualified teachers who have created a caring, inclusive, student- centered environment. Students who stay at Seelos become part of the boarding community—a version of “family away from home”—with an open-minded, diverse group of students and staff. Moving into a residential setting at any school can be exciting and unnerving, so each student who lives at Seelos is encouraged to get to know the other students, get involved in as many extracurricular activities as they can, and make their best effort to speak English at all times.

Students at Seelos receive daily academic support in the study hall as well as math and science tutors every week. While living on campus gives students more time for academics, it also allows them to become involved in the wide variety of dynamic extracurricular activities on offer at RIS. Seelos students have access to RIS facilities in their free time as well as to a range of organized outings around Bangkok on weekends. While the staff at Seelos promote and celebrate academic success, they also encourage and emphasize personal development, collaboration, and social responsibility.

MEET OUR RESIDENCE COORDINATOR

MRS. ALEXANDRA POWELL – SEELOS RESIDENCE COORDINATOR

“I am an Australian who grew up in Australia, but I was also a boarder a long way from my home for six years. My two daughters were also weekly boarders. So I come to Seelos with experience of having been both a boarder and the parent of boarders. This will be my fifth year working in a boarding department. I know the ups and downs of living away from home and make sure I help all the boarders settle into boarding life here at RIS. I worked at a British boarding school here in Thailand for the past two years and love living in Bangkok. I have managed to travel quite a lot over that time and look forward to more travel in Asia.”
