purple elephant at 39

An endearing house filled with all the history and charm of old Bangkok is home to the beloved purple elephant created in the eighties by one of our students – Per Jonsson from Sweden. The school exudes comfort, and the tradition of bygone days is palpable within the walls of this old colonial home that has been so lovingly restored for her young inhabitants.

Here our children, aged eighteen months to three years, engage in meaningful play and learning in a playground created especially for them, one that reflects the time when the purple elephant was first conceived. For children who have the privilege of playing in such an environment, it is a comfortable transition to ‘The City School’ located just around the corner – and what a delight it is to see our oldest graduates returning with their own children and reliving the experience they had when they themselves were young.
