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.
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.
This is a reminder that next Tuesday, 14th November, and the following Tuesday, 21st November are the KS1 & KS2 Parent Consultations. It’s not too late to request an appointment using the links below. If you’d prefer an appointment outside of these days, please contact the class teachers directly.

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.
