Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Christmas Showcase

Christmas shows across Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 showcased the amazing talent of the youngest students at St Andrews International School Bangkok...The Christmas Fair and Concerts take place on Wednesday...Don’t forget that school closes at 12.30 on Friday

Last week was very exciting as Foundation Stage entertained us with their amazing Christmas Shows, and Y2 invited us to their Lights, Camel Action extravaganza in the Drama Studio. Being lucky enough to see all of the performances was lovely. It is always great  to see how the children grow in confidence and independence as they move up through school. They worked so hard to remember their songs, actions, dialogue and acting.

This morning we saw Y1 in action this week as they gave us their performance in the Quad as the KS1 Festive Finale.  Brilliant participation from everyone.

A huge thank you of course to all of the adults who supported them, and to you for being an enthusiastic audience!

All of the Foundation Stage and KS1 staff wish everyone a happy and restful holiday and we look forward to seeing everyone again after the break.

Christmas Fair

Although FS and KS1 students are not involved in the carol concerts this week, it would be lovely to see some of you at the Christmas Fair on Wednesday - from 2.30 - 4.00 p.m.  With food available and vendors selling seasonal gifts, and Y6 students running small games and activities, it is always a lovely atmosphere.

The Fair, organised by the PTG, is a popular event and as such will impact parking and traffic flow around school.

*Please try and send the children in with lots of change if they are going to the fair- the games and activities organised by the Y6 students will cost between 10-20 Baht per go. .

Please note that parking and a shuttle bus service are available at MaxValu on Sukhumvit 71. This will run until 6.00 p.m. Parents can stamp their tickets to benefit from free parking for stays of over two hours. The parking stamp will be in the Main Office.  There is also parking at Suk 71, just a short walk from school.

Arrangements for the last day of term

Friday is the last day of term and we will be closing at 12.30 p.m. Please make sure that you make arrangements to collect your children at this time. The school buses will be boarding at 12.30 p.m. for a 12.45 p.m. departure.

You can, of course, pick up your children after they have eaten lunch at 11.45 a.m. but please inform the class teachers before you take them out of school.

Future Events - 11 January, Tiger Conservation Day

As you can imagine, though we are already celebrating the end of a successful first term, we are planning well ahead into Term 2 and beyond.

We start off the next term with a sustainability and conservation theme, which we will explain in more detail next term, but we want to give you some advance warning! On Friday 11th January the children will be visited by representatives of The World Wildlife Fund in Thailand (WWF), who will talk to us about conservation in general, but specifically about Thailand’s endangered tiger population. To raise the profile of this event we are inviting staff and students to come to school wearing ‘tiger themed’ clothes. That might just mean wearing orange and black or something more creative!

We ask that children donate 20-50 baht on this day, the money going to the World Wildlife Fund in Thailand to support their local projects.

Siri will be returning to St Andrews in January to a free 2 hour workshop to parents, with a focus of mindful self compassion. (https://centerformsc.org/learn-msc/)

The workshop will be held on Friday 11th January at our Primary School - R Block 7th floor

Start time 8.30am.
