As the world is facing this pandemic, we are all doing the best we can to take care of our
children, families and our community. At Starfish Education, we are working hard to support our
communities through our programmes during these challenging times.
Starfish Country Home School
Our K6 school is now closed according to the Thai government strategy to encourage social
distancing. All of our school management and teachers are working from home. The homeroom
teachers are always in contact with the guardians on group chats. There is a dedicated school
hotline (+66 95 685 9092) available for guardians should they need assistance on anything.
We are actively working to move all of our prearranged Face-to-Face workshops and events
online. Notably, the work to support professional development for 59 public schools in the
TSQP project of the Equitable Education Funds (EEF). The coaches are working hard set up
online courses and producing educational materials to continue the great work with the schools.
We are also working rigorously to add more online courses on our curriculum. Please stay tuned
for the upcoming online courses at www.facebook.com/StarfishAcademy2019
As an online learning platform for parents and teachers to help children develop 21st-century
skills, we have more than 90 online courses for parents to learn about child development,
learning strategies and hands-on activities. We are also launching three new course collections
for parents and family to support their children’s education and development during this home
Starfish Country Home School Foundation and Starfish Innovation Co.Ltd (Social Enterprise)
The management has been working hard to set up our work from home policy which includes
HR-related policy, team planning and technology professional development planning for our
employees. We have been transitioning to home working. All employees will be working from
home form Monday 23rd, March 2020 onwards.
We do realise that the disaster affects everyone on professional and personal levels. We are
making sure that we do all we can as an organisation to support our children and their families,
our partners, community, last but not least, our Starfish and Firetree trust team members. I am
grateful and proud of our team for their responsive, thoughtful and caring actions. Together, we
can get through this global crisis. Take care, everyone!
