ISB’s Multilingual Peace Pole Gets an Update


ISB’s peace pole, a wooden obelisk in the courtyard between the MS/HS Creative Art Room and ES Music, has had an update! (Click the arrows to see.)

Carpenters in the Building and Grounds department refinished the pole and reinstalled it with a new base.

The pole was first erected after the International Day of Peace in 2015, when ISB began marking this occasion annually as a school. The pole’s faces bear messages of peace in four languages used by many students in 2015: English, Japanese, Korean, and Thai. It exemplifies the school’s commitment to ideals greater than itself and to #manylanguagesonevoice.

The carpenters who removed, refinished, and reinstalled the pole with its new base are: 

  1. Mr. Preecha Prasit
  2. Mr. Kosol Panngern
  3. Mr. Ekkalak Sasuya
  4. Mr. Songchana Ponthong
  5. Mr. Anan Nilpradub
  6. Mr. Suranal Ouychan
  7. Mr. Santas Satwasana
  8. Mr. Somsong Muanthong
  9. Mr. Prakit Kimchua
  10. Mr. Supachai Penngrueng.
