Ascot International School With Additional IB Authorisation

Ascot International School, an international primary school in Thailand, has been in operation at Ramkhamhaeng Soi 118 since 1995, and has acquired several accreditations and authorisations, like CIS and IB Diploma Programme, among others.

The school recently announced that it just received more authorisation, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), making it one of the four schools in the Thai capital to have the authorisation for multiple programmes.

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme is available to kids in the age range of 3-11 y.o., and different from the traditional methods of classrooms in that its designed students to challenge the ideas presented to them, ask questions, and, of course, extend their skills.

Ascot Headmaster Gary Booth explains that the learning process invariably involves taking risks, and the point of the programme is to create a safe environment for their students to learn, make choices about how they learn and behaviour in order to grow into adaptable and well-rounded students.

Ascot is a PYP school, where teachers act less than instructors and more like guides to students, who don’t just sit passively in their chairs, they’re active and move around the education space, going to the library, collecting data outdoors, or interacting with their teacher. A PYP classroom commonly has students working together in groups as they learn cooperatively, consult learning material, research or just gathering info from other people and their environment.

The IB PYP programme ends in a Year 6 exhibition, where the now-11 year old students working together in order to conduct an in-dept inquiry into issues and problems that afflict the real world. This activity is aimed at having the students use the transdisciplinary skills that they pick up over the programme’s duration in order to present their inquiry to the school, in any method that they deem fit.

Currently, the international primary school in Thailand accepts students from 18 months up to 18 years of age, allowing them to complete secondary education in familiar environs and avoid the problem of having to readjust to a new learning environment. Additionally, this also lets Ascot keep an eye on the students’ development, letting the school meet their needs.

Social Media Goes Wild Over $5 Carpet Cleaning Trick

People like their homes clean, as any company that handles carpet cleaning in Perth or anywhere else knows, the less time and energy needed to make that happen, the better. So it comes as no surprise when a new carpet cleaning trick, one that only needs a $5 squeegee, popped up, it became a hit.

Cleaning guru and British Instagram Star Mrs. Hinch, AKA Sohpie Hinchcliffe, recently revealed to the world at large, via social media, the trick behind her squeaky-clean carpet. Said trick is a simple tool, designed for cleaning windows, that she uses in order to get all the hidden dust, dirt and other grime from the fibres of her carpet.

According to her, it was also a great way to get into the hard-to-reach areas around your carpet, like the corners.

She shared her trick with her followers, all 1.8 million of them, saying that vacuuming only makes the carpet appear clean, there’s still deeply hidden dirt within it, and, on Instagram, she shared how a $5 squeegee, available to companies that handle carpet cleaning in Perth and anywhere else, as well as homeowners, could reveal how much dirt is hiding under the carpets.

As expected, other people on social media gave the hack a try, and the accounts are telling. One entry from a follower said that they always thought their carpets were clean, until they tried Mrs. Hinch’s trick, which led to a lot of pet hair getting pulled up, and a bit of disgust on the homeowner’s part. According to the user, they took a squeegee, and, quite literally, dragged it across the entirety of the carpet, which let it rack up all the hair and dirt on it.

Mrs. Hinch spoke to local UK outlet, The Sun saying that she only made the Mrs. Hinch Home account in order to put her home pictures somewhere, somewhere that wasn’t her personal Instagram. Now, she’s an internet sensation, who openly admits that cleaning helps her with anxiety and panic issues.

Cleaning hacks have been hot on the internet recently, like that denture cleaning hack that’s taken the internet by storm thanks to some very effective results.

New ‘Vehicle Wrapping Association Of Australia’ Growing

A new non-profit association, the Vehicle Wrapping Association of Australia, has been getting a lot of support as wrappers across the country, from those handling fleet signage in Brisbane to those dealing with race car wraps in Melbourne, join the association.

The VWAA, founded by industry veteran and owner of WA’s Wrap Works, Mark Murray, rolled-out quietly in December 2018, and already has several leading vehicle wrapping businesses from across Australia counted among its members.

The VWAA has an auditing process that needs to be taken by any aspiring member, with only those passing being counted as accredited members, regardless of whether they handle fleet signage in Brisbane or in Sydney. Currently, Pure Image (VIC), Signrite (TAS), and Zooma Signs (QLD), among others.

According to Murray, the vehicle wrapping industry has expanded in recent years, and has seen quite a few ‘crap jobs and less than stellar workmanship’, which he hopes to remedy. The 53-year-old says that, having been in the industry his whole life,he noticed that, as the industry grew, pricing was changing and standards were degrading.

Customers, he says, don’t deserve to see their car’s film come off. It was an issue that was giving the industry a bad name, with some actual sign shops botching jobs. Murray says that some shops, erroneously, think they can wrap vehicles simply because they handled signage.

Car wrapping, Murray adds, is an art form. There’s more to it than simple signage, and there are accreditations and insurance policies to give customers peace of mind. To that end, he founded the VWAA, where members would be tested, before being given proper accreditation, and only after meeting the set standards.

Murray explains that membership to the VWAA is purely voluntary; if a wrap business doesn’t have the VWAA logo, he explains, it doesn’t automatically mean that the wrapper isn’t a professional, but the VWAA does provide customers peace of mind that they’ll get professional level workmanship when they get their car wrapped.

All VWAA members undergo auditing to ensure that they meet the association’s professional, legal and ethical requirements.

Murray says that all he wants for the industry, what he wants the VWAA to promote, is to embrace legitimate, ethical trading business practices, proper material supplying, as well as installers that are both experienced and accredited.
