Head’s Lines: Countdown to International Day

St Andrews International School Bangkok prepares to host not one, but two, International Days … NAE Senior Leadership Meeting last week focused on expanding collaborations with groups such as Juilliard, MIT and UNICEF... Reminders about parking and drop-off procedures mentioned in last week's newsletter.

International Day

As we look towards the final two weeks of this first half term, time seems to have really flown. It certainly has been very busy, and these last two weeks are no different with lots going on. The highlight of the rest of the month will be our International Days.

As you are aware, on Friday 12 October at the Primary Campus we shall be celebrating our International Day. A huge thank you to our PTG and the country representatives for all the work they have put into setting up the food hall and cultural displays for the wide range of nationalities we have in our school community. I know it will really be a great celebration of the diversity of all our nationalities in the school community. It is always great to see all our children dressed in their national costumes or clothes that represent their culture and country.

There will be two assemblies. Each assembly will start with the flag parade which will be followed by some great musical pieces produced by our ensembles who have been meticulously practising for this performance. This year we are fortunate enough to have five cultural shows taking place in the Year 6 quad area during the extended break from 10.00 to 10.30 a.m.

This is always a fantastic day for our whole school community which I hope you will able to attend.

The following Friday, 19 October, St Andrews will be hosting another International Day at the High School Campus. This will be a great last day for this half term with some very interesting global issues being addressed by our High School students. I know the international food hall will be another fantastic celebration of sensory delights from around the world. I would like to give a huge thank you to our PTG and country representatives for pulling this all together for a second time.  Your hard work is sure to be appreciated by our entire community.

NAE Senior Leadership Meeting

The NAE SLT conference I attended last weekend focused on the collaboration NAE has with Juillard, MIT and UNICEF. These are all moving forward with more interaction and support for each school. Certainly, Juilliard Music is now well established and certainly improving our own music programme. The introduction of dance this year and drama next year will further develop these areas of our curriculum.

Our STEAM Curriculum is also progressing well with support from the NAE collaboration with MIT. A professor from MIT presented at the conference and indicated how keen MIT was in further developing the relationship with NAE schools.

Finally Apple executives presented about how they viewed the future of education using technology and how they would like to further develop their understanding of what schools require. In the future, this could be another very interesting relationship NAE can leverage our use of cutting edge technology to develop our own learning environment.

In Remembrance of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej

Next Saturday, 13 October, marks two years of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej's passing and various Thai governmental offices will hold a religious ceremony on Friday 12 October as a memorial service for their beloved H.M. the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. On Saturday 13 October, which is King Bhumibol Adulyadej Memorial Day, the Thai government is inviting everyone to wear a yellow shirt in his honour.

Primary School Drop-off Reminder

To help reduce traffic congestion in the local area around our Primary School, we would like to remind you that in the morning Pridi 20 is a drop off zone only.

To speed up the drop off process and keep traffic flowing, we ask that children are ready to exit the vehicles with all their belongings as soon as cars pull up to the entrance. This morning the Klongtan police observed some families stopping to retrieve bags from the boot/trunk of their vehicles and some cars which stopped so the driver could get out and open all of the doors. This caused traffic to back up on Pridi 20 all the way up and onto Sukhumvit 71.

In the afternoons, cars should not be parking opposite the school entrance and waiting for children to come out.

To ensure that we still have permission from the local police to use this entrance as a drop-off/pick up point, we request that those of you who use this facility cooperate by ensuring a quick drop off in the morning and not blocking the soi by parking opposite the entrance.

Parents are encouraged to take advantage of the MaxValu parking and shuttle bus service as well as parking at Gateway and using that shuttle bus.

Additional car parking at Primary School

We will soon be announcing additional parking following discussions with the owners of the land adjacent to Soi 26 on Sukhumvit 71, which is very close to the Primary School. This is a large area of land which has already been initially developed and covered with a concrete floor. The landowners are looking to open a really impressive market in the near future, which will be called Suk 71. They have agreed that we will be able to use this area for our school community to park their cars at the beginning and end of the school day. We are in the process of working out the details with the Suk 71 owners which will include our school security guards being present throughout the day to help parents access this parking and ensure that it is clear of our school communities cars at the end of the school day. I look forward to telling you more about this great development in the near future.
