No Idling Poster Competition
Just before half term we held a competition to design a poster to raise awareness of the issue of car engines idling. The posters will be put up around the school car park to make our community aware of this global issue. There will be English and Thai versions displayed. There were lots of interesting designs entered from students across the key stage. In the end it was the simplicity and clear message provided by the winning posters that won over the judges. Well done to everyone who took part- you have all been awarded house points.
The winners, who will see their work displayed and will get a personal copy of the poster to keep were:
Y3 & 4 - Aya Y3 Yao
Y5 & 6 - Olivia Y6 Karen
Year 5 Music Concert

St. Andrews Community BCST “Bird Walk”
Mr Ewen and Ms Kiyomi would like to invite key stage two children and their parents to this community event on Sunday 26th of March from 7:30 am until approx. 11:00 am. It aims introduce children to the pleasures of bird watching in Bangkok’s Suan Luang Rama 9 Park. The event will be run in conjunction with the Bird Conservation Society of Thailand (BCST), who will provide expert, English speaking guides and equipment.
Because this is a non-curricular event we are asking parents to accompany their child/children on the walk. Brothers and sisters are welcome, but the event is not suitable for very young children. There is a small charge per person to cover the BCST's costs. There are limited spaces, so they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in coming along please email us and we will forward further details. We look forward to seeing you there.

Book Week 2017
Next week is Book Week in the Primary School. In last Friday’s assembly, Mrs Leanne- our literacy coordinator- ran through all of the events and competitions which will be taking place over the week. A PDF of these can be found here. Please have a look to help decide which competitions your child/children can enter to earn valuable house points and other prizes.
One standout competition- which is a new addition for this year- is the ‘The Great STA Book Week Bake Off’. In this the students need to bake a Roald Dahl themed cake. All entries will be judged by a panel consisting of some members of our school staff alongside some catering professionals.
Don’t forget that Tanya Landman, our visiting author (click here for more info on her) will be available to sign copies of her books, which are for sale on both days of her visit. There are limited copies and they will go quickly, but fear not- she will be able to send some signed copies across to us when she returns to the UK for anyone who misses out.
