purple elephant @49

Happening upon a blissful bamboo forest just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok is a rare occurrence. The Purple Elephant@49 – the latest addition to our family of schools – embodies this calm and tranquillity.

The gentle breezes flowing through the school and its environs beckon all who enter these hallowed grounds to pause, take a breath, and simply delight in the surrounds. And, if you think you’re hearing young children engage in discourse in three languages, you are not mistaken, because here these young citizens of the world are exposed to the rich experience that comes from a mix of three cultures, and communicate it in English, Mandarin and Thai. The bamboo forest allows its young inhabitants, aged eighteen months to three years, to engage in a dialogue with one another, and their surroundings, as they forge lasting cross-cultural friendships, and learn new ways to communicate them, every day.
