It has been almost one year since the passing of His Majesty the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, a great loss resonating in the hearts of Thai people throughout the world. The much-revered and beloved King passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on 13th October 2016 at Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok. The Royal Cremation and merit-making activities are planned to last five days starting from 25th until 29th October 2017 at Sanamluang Royal Crematorium where the “Architecture of Heaven” – an elegant nine-spired funeral pyre for the late King has been built especially for this ceremony. On 26th October, the Royal Cremation Ceremony will take place between 17.30 hr and 22.00 hr. The actual cremation is scheduled for 22.00 hr.
To express the profound sense of mourning that we all feel from the loss of our beloved Majesty the late King Bhumibol, St Andrews International School Bangkok would like to encourage the entire school community to observe an appropriate dress code in respect to this great man. If possible, we ask that you wear black or dark clothing, or at the very least, tone down the colours of your shirts or dresses for the entire month of October. Students should still come to the school wearing their normal school uniforms. Furthermore, during October we will not be wearing House Colours until the mourning period and the royal cremation is finished.
This week Rembrandt Family Studios will be taking individual photographs at the High School from Tuesday 26th September to Friday 29th September in the Fitness Studio. We will be taking class photos for the Yearbook that will be distributed to students at the end of the school year. There will be also be opportunities for your children to take photographs with their siblings in the Fitness Studio at break time and lunchtime. Details about these photos were sent by email last week.
