Year 3 Assembly
Well done to all of the Year 3 students, teachers and LSAs for an fantastic assembly last Friday, which took us all on a journey through life in Ancient Greece. The students did an amazing job of depicting life in the city states of Greece and made us all think about the differences between life now & then.
Don’t forget that school is closed next Monday and Tuesday for half term. We will re-open on Wednesday morning for the final half term of the year.

Next Friday, 9th June, is the Year 5 assembly. This be be all about their new topic, the Romans. Parents are invited to come along and enjoy this performance by the Year 5 students. This will be in the Sports Hall and will begin at 8 am.
Pop up Art in KS2
If you’ve been in the KS2 building over the last week, you may have noticed that some artwork interesting has appeared in the stairwells. Mr Neill’s Street Art ECA have been creating some pieces and installing them around the campus. The image below show the children’s work in the style of Keith Haring. Keep your eyes peeled for more exciting installations appearing over the rest of this term.
House Black & White Day
Back in January of this year, a devastating fire tore through the Klong Toey slum, destroying 51 old wooden shacks and the homes of 76 families. In total, an area two city blocks wide & long was wiped out by the fire. Most of the families affected were left with little more than the clothes on their back and the difficult task of rebuilding ahead of them. The Mercy Centre, under the leadership of Father Joe, work tirelessly in the Klong Toey community to help the residents get access to a standard of life that many of us take for granted- education, medical care, clean water.
Following the fire, the Mercy Centre have been working with the local community to help rebuild the homes that were lost to the flames and return a sense of order to the lives of the families affected. However, this is only possible through the help of the wider Bangkok community.
St Andrews House team would like us to do our part to help support our local community by raising 70,000 Baht to go to the fantastic work being done by the Mercy Centre. To do this we are holding a Black & White day this Friday, 2nd June. On this day, students to come to school wearing black & white clothing (grey is fine too). This doesn’t have to be a special costume, it should simply be something from their existing wardrobe that's black or white. We would like participating students to make a donation to go to the Mercy centre (suggested 50 baht). The total collected will be shared in next week’s newsletter.
