Community Day: Saturday 4th February
There are just three weeks until we hold our Community (fun) Day on Saturday 4th February. There has been lots of activity at school with our PTG working hard with several members of the school administration to get everything prepared.
This will be the last Community Day as a single campus and it will be a great day for the whole family! There will be lots of rides and activities as well as plenty of food to choose from. There will be some great shopping opportunities as well. On top of all that there are fabulous raffle prizes to be won and raffle tickets will be sent home with students in the near future.
The day will start at 11.00 am with the raffle being called around 5.00 pm, so there will be plenty of time to have fun with your family. You will soon be able to buy your entrance ticket which is a wrist band from the school Accounts Office on Monday 23rd January. They come in two colours: black and white. The white wristband costs 100 baht and is for entrance only. The black wristband costs 500 baht and includes open-access to all the rides and means those with this wristband can enjoy the rides over and over again!
I am really looking forward to a fantastic day and hope to see you and your family enjoying this event.
This week I go to London for the annual recruitment fair organised by Nord Anglia Education (NAE). This will take place over three days - Thursday until Saturday evening. There have been lots of Skype interviews already with a whole range of excellent candidates and I am looking forward to three full days of interviewing teachers wanting to come and work at our school.
Christmas Music Concert
The music teachers and students across the school had worked very hard to bring this event together for the end of our first term. I would like to especially thank our music teachers, students and all staff involved. Having that many performers on stage at different times during the afternoon and early evening made for a really special atmosphere as we listened to and watched the performances.
This was a fantastic event and we were very fortunate to have Mr. Julian Hadden who is a professional camera specialist videoing the performance. This is a really great reminder of what great concerts these were, and the recordings can be seen here (Key Stage 2) and here (High School).
I would like to thank Julian for all the work he has put into filming and editing this recording of our Christmas Music Concerts - they certainly look and sound brilliant.
Car Park Idling Engines!!
I know our school has very limited car parking space, especially when school closes at 2.30 pm in the afternoon and everyone heads home. One issue that appears to be getting worse is that cars that are able to park in the car park in both the morning and afternoon are leaving their engines on while they are parked. This obviously generates a lot of fumes which everyone then has to walk through entering and leaving the school.
The PTG has raised this as a concern and we shall work together with the student community to raise awareness of this problem so that cars are not left with engines running in the car park.
Please bear this in mind when you are next parked at school.
