Thursday, May 10, 2018
In the morning of Thursday, May 10, Assumption College English Program held an opening ceremony for the 2018 ACEP Professional Development Fair which is being held at our school on May 10 – 15, 2018.
The ceremony started with Mr. Marcin Kempka, Head of Foreign Affairs, welcoming the ACEP Brothers, teachers, and staff to the ceremony. Mr. Marcin also discussed the overview of Professional Development at ACEP and the schedule for the next few days. Professional Development plays an important role at ACEP with seminars and training sessions organized during the months of May and October of each year. We also offer professional opportunities to our teachers during the academic year.
After the short introduction, Mr. Marcin invited Bro. Dr. Pisutr Vapiso, Director, to thank Bro. Vicharn Saengharn, Vice Director, and Bro. Katawut Sittichosakul, Assistant Director, for their work at our school. The two Brothers will be leaving ACEP and moving to other schools; Bro. Vicharn Saengharn to Saint Louis College and Bro. Katawut Sittichosakul to Saint Gabriel’s College. Bro. Pisutr then welcomed Bro. Supaloek Viriyasirimongkol to ACEP. Bro. Supaloek will be the Bursar. Then Bro. Pisutr congratulated Rev. Bro. Cyril Siriroj Viriyasirimongkol on the Auspicious Occassion of the 7th Cycle, or 84th, Birthday Anniversary.
Bro. Dr. Pisutr Vapiso then talked about the school policies for the 2018 Academic Year.
After the Opening Ceremony, the teachers joined various seminars and training sessions that the school prepared for them. Teachers will join seminars and training sessions on Technology, ESL Teaching, IELTS and Oxford International GCSE.
