Air Quality Update
With pollution in the city hitting the headlines last week, we at St Andrews have been looking very carefully at the air quality in Bangkok and how it can affect our students and staff. We have re-visited our air pollution policy, which can be seen in the High School section below. Primary children are not able to regulate their activity levels in the same way that older students can, so teachers have to do it for them by reducing time outside, when necessary.
For more details on how we are monitoring the pollution levels each day, please read Mr Roo’s section of the newsletter.
Year 5 have been using Dash and Dot, our new control robots. The students have been building code on the iPads to send their Dash robot around a track on the floor. They have also been given additional challenges such as making a siren sound and recording some audio. This is a challenging activity as the students first build the code and then send their Dash off on the track. When Dash makes a wrong turn, they have to de-bug their code to get him back on track
