Nord Anglia Education U11 Games

It’s only 4 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.

The NAE Games begin on Friday 1st December, with completing teams staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton. That evening, the children will have a welcome dinner before the events start on Saturday 2nd. These continue continuing on Sunday 3rd December and concluding with a Gala dinner on Sunday evening. The two day tournament 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.

There are four other Nord Anglia schools coming to Bangkok to take part in the NAE Games: Regents, Pattaya, British International School, Ho Chi Minh City, British Vietnamese International School, Hanoi and Northbridge International School, Cambodia.

The PE team are very much looking forward to the NAE Games and extending our STA welcome to our neighbouring Nord Anglia Schools.

Loy Kratong

Last Friday morning, our Year 6 students popped over to Reception and Year 1 to help the younger children make their krathongs. This was a fantastic example of our What Makes a Great St Andrews Community? framework in action. The children fulfilled many of the aspects of the relationships section by supporting the younger students. There will also be more opportunities for such cross phase work during our Primary reading week in which the Y6 students will travel across to HIgh School to work with older students and the Y9 students will come across here to work with Year 3.

 

Poppies

As part of their topic this term- Fantasy Stories- the Year 6 children are reading the story ’The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe ’ by C. S. Lewis. This story is set during the World War 2 and follows the adventures of a family of children who are evacuated from their home to go and live with an uncle in the countryside, where they would be free form air raids. As part of the topic, the children start to learn about WWII.

St Andrews has a long standing relationship with the Royal British Legion in Thailand (who also raise money for veterans in Thailand) and the High School students have always sold poppies to help raise money for this charity. With High School’s move to Ekami, Year 6 are now taking over this responsibility for this site, which ties in with what they are learning in class.

 

Over the course of this week, the Year 6 students will be selling poppies and other poppy related items (wristbands, wrist snaps, bracelets). These range between 50 - 100 baht each and are available to all KS2 students. You can read more about the story behind poppies here.

International Day

Next Friday, 10th November, is International Day at the Primary School. This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the diversity of our community and learn something of the culture and life of other nations. During the day, the children will get to take part in a number of activities run by the teachers which allow them to visit different countries. The day will begin with an international assembly of music and dance and of course, there’s the amazing International Day lunch in the Sports Hall in which representatives of the different nations provide examples of their nations cuisine for the children to try.

On International Day all students should come wearing their national costume, or wear an outfit that represents their nation. House t-shirts/school uniform are not needed on this day.

Influenza Vaccination

To eliminate queues on November 17th for those families signed up for the flu vaccination, Samitivej Children’s Hospital representatives will be at St Andrews Primary School, outside the office, at the following time:

Date:  Monday November 13, 2017

Time: 07:00 – 15:30 hrs.

Venue: St Andrews International School Bangkok, Primary School, Pridi Banomyong 20

During this time you can pay for the vaccinations your family has requested and complete the necessary medical forms. Then on Friday the 17th you bring your receipt with you and join the line for the vaccination. The receipt will contain all the information the medical staff need to administer the appropriate dosages.

 

You will be able to pay on the day but the hospital strongly recommends that this is done before as it speeds up the whole process and means not too much waiting around for the younger students.

Entering our children’s world

A Workshop By Rachel Nahmias (Our Play Therapist)

Children’s behaviour is an expression of their feelings and thoughts. The behaviour is a message they are sending to their surrounding. In many cases, this message is hard for adults to read.

How do we better understand our children’s world? How do we see things through their eyes? And how do we learn to better communicate with our children?

This Wednesday, November 8th, Rachel Nahimas, our play Therapist, will be hosting a workshop at 8:10am on helping parents better understand how to see the world through their children's eyes and how to better communicate with their children.
