St Andrews has always been very proud of the support it gives to local causes and charities, but also tries to educate children about global issues and support initiatives that are happening on a global scale.
Later this year some of our High School students have been given the opportunity to join with some of the other Nord Anglia schools on an expedition to Tanzania. Whilst on the expedition they will get be involved in community projects such as building smokeless stoves, building desks and chairs for local schools and building goat sheds.
Over the next week or so High School Students will come and visit the younger children and tell them all about the places they will be visiting.
To support our High School friends, this Thursday, 16th February, we will be having a Tanzania Day and encouraging all the children to come dressed in the colours of the Tanzanian flag - green, yellow, blue and black - or a combination of them all, but please don't go out and buy anything special for the occasion.
There will be an optional donation (we suggest around 50 baht but it is up to you). This money will go towards the fundraising efforts of the students going to Tanzania.
Take a look at this Google Slides to see more about where your money is going and how our students help out in Tanzania - click here
Global Awareness - No Car Engine Idling Awareness House Competition
To help raise awareness of this issue, the students need to design a poster which will be professionally printed up and displayed in our car park. The competition is split up into 3 age groups - KS1 (Y1&2), Lower KS2 (Y3&4) and Upper KS2 (Y5&6). Everyone who takes part will receive House points and the winners will receive bonus points. The closing date for the competition is Friday 17th February.
