Biokia Stands for Quality and Sustainability

The clean forests of northern Finland are ideal for growing berries: clean and bright, untouched, and free of pesticides. Nordic berries are an authentic superfood rich in nutrients and flavor.

In berries, all vitamins, flavonoids, trace elements, and dietary fiber are in natural form. Berries are an easy and delicious way to eat healthily and boost your wellbeing.

Biokia’s berries are handpicked to ensure the highest quality and sustainability of the forests. In addition to local berry pickers, hundreds of foreign berry pickers, including Thais, are also invited to come and pick berries during the season every year.

We take responsibility for paying a reasonable salary for our berry pickers. All our operations comply with the ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility.

Biokia’s products are now available also in Thailand.  Please find more information about the products and their distribution HERE.

KIS Celebrates Strong Results

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is respected around the world as one of the most rigorous high school diploma programs. Students select six IB courses at the end of 10th grade and work tirelessly for two years to sit the exams.

KIS International School’s graduating class of 2022 was challenged to handle this trying curriculum entirely during the pandemic. They began their IBDP courses in August 2020 and spent most of the following two years online or in a hybrid model of instruction.

As a result, forty percent of the graduating class undertook the additional challenge of a bilingual diploma, and forty percent also achieved a score of 35 or higher.

 

 

KIS’s IBDP average score of 33 continues to be above the worldwide average of 32, with an overall pass rate of nearly 90%. They leave KIS with the lifelong skills that the IB curriculum instills: principled, caring, and knowledgeable risk-takers ready to improve the world.

 

 

The students have been expertly guided by our faculty to develop skills in such areas as thinking critically and creatively, problem-solving, reflecting, communicating, social skills, collaboration, self-management, self-motivation, resilience, emotional management, time management, research, and information literacy. These skills allow the students to continue learning throughout their lives and to have what it takes to be the innovators of the future.

Thanks to the outstanding results, the students have been accepted at top universities around the world.

 

About KIS International School

KIS International School is known for its dynamic curriculum and passionate educators that guides students toward thinking for themselves and taking control of their learning.

SEAC Launches Finnish Education Initiative in 12 Thai Schools

The South East Asia Center (SEAC) has launched an education initiative based on the Finnish model in 12 Thai schools, while trying to inspire widespread educational reform across the region.

The community-based, educational and social service organization announced its cooperation with Code School Finland. Aringya Thaloengsri, SEAC chief capability officer and managing director, says it had been carefully selected from 94 institutions around the world.

“With the strength of Finnish education, and this coding school’s reputation for a world-leading education model, I believe that the partnership can only help to improve and develop Thai educational standards, so our children have every opportunity to grow up to be quality adults and be prepared in every dimension for the working world.”

The curriculum not only focuses on hard skills such as coding, AI or robotics but also the soft skills such as learning techniques, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, business skills and user-centric ideas.

Jyri Järviaho, Finnish ambassador to Thailand, says this is a positive and timely step with education in its current state of flux.

“Finland has a long tradition of investing and developing its education system.”

In the Worldwide Education for the Future Index, Finland ranks number one.
