The idea is to build up STA’s Christmas community spirit by sending cards to friends across the Primary School. Many classes will be creating cards in school time, but all children and their families can get involved by sending cards to anyone in any class at the 71 campus only.
The post box will be in the Library from morning break on 11 December until 13 December. We plan to make deliveries each day. The Year 3 and 4 school councillors will be the post boys and girls.
Christmas Boxes for the BRC
Thank you to everyone who has donated boxes for the BRC. A huge pile of presents was removed today; ready to be delivered in time for Christmas. We will be having representatives from the BRC in attendance at our assemblies on Friday morning to say a big thank you to the children for their kindness.
Arrangements for the last day of term
On Friday, 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.
Reports and Parent Consultations
The teachers are busily writing their Term 1 reports, which will cover general progress and specific progress in English and Maths. They will be ready to view on Moodle on Friday 14 December.
Many parents have already requested appointments using the links below (highlighted in blue). If you haven’t signed up for an appointment yet, there’s still time to reserve your place, however, some time slots are proving popular and are now full, so you may be offered an alternative time. You can check out the confirmed appointments, and look for available times if you’ve not yet booked, using these links (highlighted in purple):

Future Event - 11 January 2019, 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 after the holidays, but we want to give you some advance warning! On Friday 11 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.
