SISB LOGO

RATIONALE
The enhanced SISB logo is a symbolic representation of the SISB name, which is inspired by its first
campus - Singapore International School of Bangkok, the first Singapore International School that was
established in Thailand in 2001. SISB aspires to bring education to people of diverse backgrounds and
nationalities and strives to be a leading international school to provide quality and broad-based
education to students. The colour black symbolises strength and solidarity of the SISB workforce. The
colour blue reflects knowledge and integrity, capturing the essence of an international organisation
that is constantly progressing. The two colours unite to signify that SISB is a community inspired by a
global outlook and enriched by cultural diversity.

SISB CREST
The enhanced SISB School Crest is an emblem of the spirit of excellence that the school upholds.
Emblazoned in the Crest are two lions supporting a shield which embodies the SISB name together
with symbols of intellect and knowledge. Below the shield is a banner inscribed with the school’s
motto. The lions represent Singapore and
symbolises strength and integrity. The colour orange associates with energy, creativity and positivity.
Harmonising with the SISB logo colours of black and blue, the emblem’s colours denotes the core of
the School’s spirit of service, perseverance, integrity, respect & responsibility, independence and
teamwork.

OUR NATIONAL FLAG

ORIGIN

Thailand’s first flag, used when the country was known as Siam, was plain red; however, this design
was deemed not strong enough for international relations. Then in 1855, King Mongkut (Rama IV)
officially created the first flag, complete with a red backdrop and a white elephant in the middle of it,
which has long been a royal symbol and the national animal of Thailand. In 1917, the country adopted
the current flag design; however, at this point, the middle stripe was also red. Historians believe that
the inspiration behind this flag came during a flood when King Vajiravudh (Rama VI) saw the flag
hanging upside-down, which inspired him to create a new symmetrical flag to avoid this situation from
happening again. Not long after, in the same year, the middle stripe was changed from red to blue.

The current Thai flag is one of the world’s oldest flags, officially adopted according to the royal decree
issued by Rama VI on September 28, 1917. The national flag is locally known as Thong Trairong, which
literally means ‘tricolour’. The flag comprises five horizontal stripes in the colours red, white, blue,
white and red; the flag’s central blue stripe is twice as wide as the other stripes.

MEANING

Red is said to symbolize the blood of life
White the purity of the Buddhist faith
Blue the monarchy.
The blue and white stripes were added to the flag during World War I.

OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM

IN THAI LANGUAGE MEANING

Pra thet thai ruam luead nu’a chat chu’a thai Thailand embraces in its bosom all people of Thai
Pen pra cha rat pha thai kho’ng thai thuk suan blood. Every inch of Thailand belongs to the Thais.
It has long maintained its sovereignty, Because
Yu dam rong khong wai dai thang muan the Thais have always been united. The Thai
Duay thai luan mai rak sa mak khi people are peace-loving, But they are no cowards
at war. They shall allow no one to rob them of
Thai ni rak sa ngop tae thu’ng rop mai khlat their independence, Nor shall they suffer tyranny.
Ek ka raj ja mai hai khrai khom khi All Thais are ready to give up every drop of blood
Sa la luead thuk yat pen chat p’hli For the nation’s safety, freedom and progress.

EXAM GUIDELINES

The purpose of formal examinations is to give teachers, parents and students themselves information
about their progress, strengths and weaknesses and how well they have been performing academically
in school.
Exams are not the end of a process but part of an on-going journey that is focused on developing
students’ understanding and confidence in the content and skills mastery and are a good indication of
how both teachers and students can close the gap.

Late for exam:
Students who are late are allowed to sit for the paper but with no extra time given.

Missed exam:
Students will still be allowed to sit for the paper but senior management and internal exam committee
will decide the students’ grades with the subject teacher and on a case by case basis.

Cheating in exams:
Students caught cheating will be penalised and given a zero for that particular paper.

Not making the mark:
Students who have not passed more than 4 exam subjects will have to meet the senior management
team before the year ends.
