Skipathon update

On Friday 28 September, as part of their Fit for Life topic, Year 3 took part in a sponsored skipathon to raise money for Operation Smile Thailand, who provide life changing operations for children suffering from cleft lip and cleft palate. The children participated in a range of skipping activities for 1 hour and raised an enormous 165,581 baht, which provides a life changing operation for 6 children.

This weekend Mr Jon and his son Tymek have been in Mae Sot assisting the charity with their medical mission and to meet and play with the children before and after their operations. They have seen first-hand the impact that your donations have had on the lives of the children and their families. They have reported back that the operations have been a resounding success and the children now have new, beautiful smiles. All of the Year 3 team would to thank the children, parents and friends who have helped to support this worthy cause. Without you, none of this would have been possible.

Year 4 Virtual Titanic Museum visit

On Monday morning, Year 4 virtually traveled to the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Ridge, Tennessee yesterday did a virtual tour of the exhibits. They were meet by two characters from the Titanic story- Maggie Brown (a famous survivor of the disaster) and Thomas Andrews (the ship’s designer). This was an exciting experience as the children got to see a variety of actual artefacts from the actual ship as well as replicas of cabins, the bridge and deck as well as the beautiful Grand Staircase, which was built from the actual blueprints drawn by Thomas Andrews's team of draftsmen.

Eco Warriors Club

The Eco Warriors club in Primary School is looking for help from parents.  They need willing volunteers to help develop and maintain a vegetable garden on the top of the R block building. This is a huge job but with your help they know they can do it.

Why do we want to grow our own vegetables?

A school garden is a powerful educational tool. Through gardening, students become more responsible and learn important science skills of trial and error, predicting and problem solving. They have the opportunity to learn real agricultural life skills on a small scale as well as understand the interconnections among all living and nonliving things. The children also gain a deep understanding of where their food comes from and how to harvest and prepare healthy and delicious food. In addition, working with nature is very relaxing and allows children to really focus and unwind whilst building important teamwork skills.

What we need to succeed

We need help! We know that many of our parents are skilled and knowledgeable gardeners, understanding well what will grow specifically in Thailand. We need help sourcing high quality local seeds and soil. We need people to help us develop and maintain the space. All expertise is welcome!

If you are interested please contact Miss Helen on helen.mu@standrews.ac.th">helen.mu@standrews.ac.th.

Word Mania

Round one of Word Mania has now begun, and it will end on 9 November. For those of you who haven’t heard of Word Mania, it is a competition for schools all over the world, which gets children to make as many words as possible in three minutes. Word Mania has been shown to improve the variety of skills involved - including phonics, spelling, vocabulary and word knowledge - on average by 36%.

Last year, we did very well in the Word Mania competition. Year 4 did particularly well, as they came 3rd in the world!! Let’s see if we can even better this year. The children will be joining in the fun at school, and we would like you to encourage your child to play this at home too. Your child’s teacher should have given the login details to their class already.

For more information about Word Mania, please have a look at the website by following this link.

Did you know….?

As we continue our efforts towards being a sustainable school, our partners, such as STEPS are doing the same.  They are offering a 5 baht discount on a drink if you bring along your own cup. It would be nice to see more people bringing their own cups along as so many of us have them these days. It’s not about the discount, but about setting a good example to the children and other members of the school community.

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.
