Somongkul Touch Grade 9, SCIA High School

What opportunities has secondary school given you so far?
 
“At SCIA, I have opportunities to apply what I learn in Entrepreneurship class such as marketing, sales and customer service through student initiated projects. The school also provides opportunities for students to meet with entrepreneurs and hear from their life experiences. With my education at SCIA, I hope to add value to my father’s business and to start my own business in the future.”

What are you looking forward to about being a secondary school student in a new country, Australia that you have successfully enrolled?
 
This year I’m looking forward on starting a new chapter in my life as a secondary student. This chapter, although new and intimidating should end up being one of the most exciting and interesting one. Yet, I hope to learn many new things from secondary and hope to achieve things I could not imagine possible.

How are you feeling about transitioning in to secondary school?
 
“Most people think that going to secondary might be scary, but in my opinion it isn’t. You get to learn new things, there are more sports and cool field trips, and some students even can travel to a new country. Also, if you learn about a subject a lot you might get an A+.”
