ACEP’s Student Development Centres (SDC) are located on the upper floors of the Ave Maria and Regina Coeli Buildings for primary and secondary school students respectively. The centres include areas which have been especially designed for students to develop interest and skills in Chinese Language, Art, Music and Board Games.
The 5th floor of both academic buildings house Art Studios, Thai Music Studios, Thai Dance Studios and Piano Studios. In addition to designated Chinese Language classrooms, ACEP’s Chinese Language Centre is on the 4th floor of the Ave Maria Building and is available for use by students from all Year Levels and special guests from time to time. In the 2015 Academic Year, two designated Board Game Rooms have been added to the ‘umbrella’ of the Student Development Centres.
Students can access the Development Centre’s learning areas during some Music, Art, Chinese Language and Club periods. The rooms are also used for After-School classes and special Club periods.
The Student Development Centres are overseen by Bro. Kittisak Charoensri (Vice Director) with the assistance of Art, Music and Chinese Language teachers. The specialised learning areas are ideal environments for teachers to provide activities which motivate ACEP students to develop a diverse range of skills and interests.
