H.E The British Ambassador to Thailand Brian Davidson visited Harrow International School Bangkok for the first time today to officially open our brand new Lower School Library.
At the opening ceremony he commented:
“Books are the most precious gift that anyone could have…”
“Books are the most precious gift that anyone could have. They are full of treasures that will develop your imaginations, they will take you to places you never dreamt of, they will help you to step into the lives of others to experience their worlds. Books are how we discover new things. They extend our vocabulary and develop our language skills.”
As part of the ceremony, he enjoyed a performance from the School’s Glee Club of ‘Where is love’ from Oliver, and Dr Seuss’s Cat in the Hat gave a special appearance with his reading of Green Eggs and Ham alongside Gerard from Year 4.
The Ambassador summed up the event: “I know that here at Harrow Bangkok the importance and enjoyment of reading is a fundamental part of your curriculum and something that all of you get great pleasure from. The new Pullman Library is a testament to that and I am sure that the Harrow Bangkok community will benefit greatly from this new facility.”
