Q: How do I register with the alumni network?


A: Click on 'REGISTER' at the top of the page then select if you were a student, staff member or parent during your time at Bangkok Patana School. Fill out the registration information as requested including choosing your username and password.
Fields with a red asterix are mandatory. Uncheck boxes next to fields to hide information from other members (apart from the administrators) or leave them checked if you are happy for this information to be visible.
One submitted , your registration will be sent to the administrator for approval.

Q: I have completed the registration process but the site won't accept my registration. Why?

A: Have you completed all the required fields and any information requested twice is identical? Please also ensure you have accepted the terms of use at the bottom. If you have done all this but are still having problems please email alumni@patana.ac.th for assistance.

Q: How do I select my 'Class of" group?

A: The 'Class of' group refers to the year that you graduated, or would have graduated, from Bangkok Patana School. A student's expected graduating year formed part of their Bangkok Patana email address eg: John Smith, who was due to graduate in 2012, his email address would have been josm12@patana.ac.th regardless of the year he joined or left.
Another way to work out your graduating year is to take the number of the Year group you left in, minus this from 13 and then add this number onto the actual year you left. ie John Smith left Bangkok Patana School in Year 9, in 2008, therefore 13 - 9 = 4. 2008 + 4 = 2012 (his expected graduating year).

I went to Bangkok Patana School before it was possible to graduate, which group should I join?

A: Please join one of the groups relating to the decade and location that you attended. These currently are:
1. 1950s:Ploenchit Road
2. 1950s: Sathorn Road
3. 1960s: soi Ngam Duphli
4. 1960s: soi Navin
5. 1970s: soi Navin
6. 1980s: soi Navin
7. 1990s: soi Lasalle

How private is my profile information?

A: Only other registered users can see your profile. The only information visible within the class lists to non-members is your name and class year, plus city and location, if you have not unchecked the boxes beside these latter two fields within your profile. All other information is private to anyone apart from registered users. Many of the personal information fields can be hidden from other registered members by unchecking the relevant boxes within your profile.  This can be done at registration or later on.

How do I access the website once my registration is approved?

A: Enter the username and password you set during registration under the 'sign in' section to the lefthand side of the home page.

I have forgotten my username/password, how can I retrieve it?

A: Forgotten your username? Send an email to alumni@patana.ac.th to request your username and it will be emailed to you. Forgotten your password? Enter your username in the 'sign in' form and click on 'Forgot your password?'

How can I turn off the auto-notifications I am receiving by email?

A: After signing in, click on 'Message Centre' on the right of the screen. Select 'Message Preferences' at the top of the next screen and click on 'Show all preferences'. You can then unselect the boxes as required. Don't forget to 'Save my settings' to save these changes.

How can I send a message to another member of the network?

A: After signing in, select 'My Messages' on the right of the screen. Under 'Message Options' select 'Message a member'.You can then search for the member you would like to message by entering a name into the relevant field. When you have found the correct member, click on 'Message member' to the right of their name and write your message.

How can I submit news / event information to the site for other alumni to view?

A: Send an email to alumni@patana.ac.th or complete the Contact Us form with the relevant details. We will then add it to the news section or events calendar. You can also add news to the group pages of which you are a member.

Why do you ask parents to register?

A: A proportion of students leaving Bangkok Patana School will do so whilst they are quite young. Many however still wish to stay in contact with the school. We therefore allow parents to register so that even our youngest alumni can be part of our network. It is up to each individual family as to when they allow ex-students to register with the network themselves. We also recognise that some parents may want to stay in touch with the school and other parents they will have met whilst their children attended Bangkok Patana School. This community website allows them an effective way to do this.

How can I stay involved with Bangkok Patana School once I have left?

A: There are many ways for you to stay involved with Bangkok Patana School once you have left.  Details of these can be found under the 'Alumni Volunteers' menu tab. We are always looking for Alumni Ambassadors from around the world to help us spread the Bangkok Patana community; we run a popular work experience programme for our older students that is always looking for companies willing to offer a placement. Alternatively why not sign up and help to mentor current and  past students, looking for both university and professional advice, as they embark on the next stage in their lives?

Can ex-staff members access any educational resources once they have left Bangkok Patana School?

A: Yes ex-staff members can access the 'Shine & Write' and 'Link & Learn' pages once they have registered with the alumni community.  Please click the 'Educational Resources' menu tab once you have signed in.  Please note these resources are to be used for educational purposes only and accredited to Bangkok Patana School where appropriate.
