Remembering others at STA

This term, Year 6 are studying fantasy stories. As a stimulus for this, they study The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. Linked with this, they also study World War Two- the story revolves around a family of evacuees who are moved to the country to live with their uncle at the height of the war.

For the last few years, the Year 6 students have been involved in selling poppies on behalf of the Royal British Legion in Thailand. The poppy is a sign of remembrance for all those who have laid down their lives in conflicts around the world. The poppy was chosen as a symbol of remembrance as this delicate flower bloomed even in the chaos and destruction of the battlefields of the First World War. You can find out more about the story of the poppy here.

From this week, children will be able to purchase poppies and other poppy-themed items at break and lunchtimes form the Year 6 students.

Year 4 Ancient Egypt Day

On Wednesday, before the half term break, Year 4 enjoyed their Ancient Egyptian Day. It was a fantastic start to the day as the children sang their Egyptian-inspired songs that had been practiced in Music class over the term. With everyone looking like real ancient Pharaohs they were now ready to walk like Egyptians back to the classrooms!

Parents were then treated to many displays of the children’s learning from during the term. The children’s examples of adventure stories, cartouches, Modigliani portraits and more, were showcased in each class. It was wonderful to see how interested the children were in explaining what they had learned and the processes they had gone through in order to create their final pieces.

Once the parents had left, we then moved onto cooking several authentic ‘Ancient’ Egyptian inspired dishes. The children used their cooking and preparation skills to produce: Tabouleh, chickpea salad, Hummus and a fruit salad. Once these were complete, the children enjoyed tucking into all that they had created!

The final part of the day saw some Ancient Egyptian themed games played with each class making several mummies!

Thank you for all your support in preparing the children for the day, and it was wonderful to see so many of you there to share the experiences.

Frightful Friday

This Friday - 2 November - we will be having a house Frightful Friday. This will be a low-key Halloween celebration in school and there will be no big parades.

The children (and teachers) will be allowed to dress up in a Halloween costume for the day but will attend all classes as normal.

At lunchtime, the House Leaders will be organising a variety of Halloween-themed activities for the students to take part in.

Fighting the flu at STA

Last year, we held our first ever flu vaccination afternoon at St Andrews International School Bangkok here at the Primary School campus. This was organised in conjunction with Samitivej hospital, whose staff came along to administer the shots. Last year was particularly bad for flu, so to help prevent this again this year and keep as many of our community healthy as possible, we will be running this again on Friday 16 November from 1.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. This year, to simplify things, you can register online for the vaccination, which costs 590 Baht per person. Payments can be made on the day at school from 1.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. Please bring along your confirmation code - which you will receive once you've registered - and present it to the Samitivej staff before paying.
