All the old favourite rides are back this year, including a Carousel, Bouncy Castle, Foam Pit, Spin Boats, Water Balloons, Archery, Shooting Gallery, Caterpillar, Electric Train and Wave Slide. This year, though, we have some new rides as well, including a second Euro Bungy, Mechanical Bull and King of Mountain Climbing Wall - giving a great selection of rides for kids both young and old. Kids that buy the 500 baht entry ticket are able to have unlimited goes on all of these rides all day. If your kids are going to the Foam Pit, please bring a spare set of clothes or swimming costume and towel as they will get wet.
We will also have loads of fun activities on Fun Day for kids including nail painting, henna and face painting, which are all included for free for kids with the 500 baht yellow wristbands, and also a favourite with smaller kids, cookie decorating as well.
Many vendors will be giving some great experiences for free including Scuba Diving by Mermaid Dive (bring your swimming costume and towel), or you can try out a variety of different dances with the professionals from Satori Dance including Salsa, Zumba, Capoeira, Jazz Dance and many more, and there will be kids golf provided by Wilding Golf. If it is all too much then you can always just relax and have a foot massage (located in the PTG Room all day).
There will be a programme of live music throughout the day, and the House Talent Show will be happening in the Drama Studio, so come along and support your friends and enjoy some great tunes. Students will be running a number of small games and stalls at just 20 baht per go to raise funds for conservation in Indonesia through Operation Wallacea, so make sure you pay them a visit. The CAS students will also be running a lot of great games and activities, including favourites like Beat the Goalie etc.
Food & Drink
This year we have more than 20 different food vendors, offering a huge selection of different types of cuisine, with everything from Greek to American to Iranian to Indian to Mexican. There will be old favourites like Pizza, Popcorn, Candy Floss and Ice Cream, and our favourite local vendors will be there serving satay and sticky rice, coconut ice cream and rotis...so there's really something for everyone! This year there will be two food courts, one in the main Canteen area, and a second one next to the Bar and Beer Garden, which will have more space and will be the best place to base yourself while the kids are free to run around. Outside the School Office we will have the Subway van, as well as a number of small local food vendors.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Coca-Cola (Thailand) there will several soft drinks stands, as well as the Rose Café serving teas and coffees and cakes that will be run by STA students. Also, we welcome back the Bar, serving a selection of wines and beers and ciders and other drinks. We will have cold draft beer on tap from Singha and this year a great open air Beer Garden (the Beer Garden and Bar area will be ADULTS ONLY).
More Things to Buy and Do
We will have a great selection of more than 30 small local vendors at this year's Fun Day selling everything from Mermaid Tail Swimming Costumes to Jewellery to Handicrafts to Dance Classes to Cross Fit Sessions to Kids Toys, Books and Games to Spa Products and Treatments and much more! There will be a number of charity stands as well, and even a White Elephant (Bric-A-Brac) stand run by the Early Years students, so if you have time between the rides, the Bar, the music and the Talent Show, then it is time to fit in a bit of shopping as well.
Practicalities & How to Get Here
Thanks to Samitivej Hospital, we shall have a professional medical team at Fun Day, including a fully equipped ambulance to deal with any emergencies.
