As we head towards December and the excitement of Christmas, we at St Andrews use this as an opportunity to reflect on our lives and appreciate how lucky we are to live such comfortable lives. Christmas is a time of giving and present us with a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the city we live in and those less fortunate than ourselves.
In KS2 we will be collecting and donating Christmas boxes to the Bangkok Refugee Centre. This is a chance to make a difference to a child’s life at this happy time of year. We ask that you send in a box filled with small gifts and useful items that will go a long way to helping a child enjoy Christmas, even if their family is facing the difficulty of living as refugees in a strange land.
The boxes could include: small toys, toiletries, books, underwear, etc. When you have filled and wrapped your box, please make sure it is clearly labelled. This should include the target gender and age group. Boxes can be left under the Christmas tree in the school office from Monday 4th December.
Nord Anglia Education U11 Games
Don’t forget, it’s only 3 weeks away until St Andrews will host the annual Nord Anglia Education U11 South East Asia Games. The Primary PE team are busy organising this exciting tournament for our U11 children. This is a fantastic opportunity for some of our athletes to complete on a wider scale.
While only a selection of students will be taking part, we would love to have a big crowd of support for our teams which will hopefully be made up of parents, fellow students and teachers- all to give a big STA cheer on their way to hopeful victory.
The two day tournament- Saturday and Sunday- involves basketball and teeball. The basketball venue will be over at our High School in the new double Sports Hall, while the tee-ball will be held at Ramkhamhaeng University. This will be a fantastic opportunity for aspiring tee-ball and basketball players to come along and see what they could be involved in in the future. Any questions about the event should be directed to Mr Damon: firstname.lastname@example.org
