I hope everyone has had a relaxing half term holiday and is excited to be back at school for the second half of Term 2. Get ready for a full slate of different events and activities happening all across the school as we move through the weeks to the term’s last day on Thursday 5th April, when we will hold our annual Songkran Festival.
One highlight will be our Primary Book Week which will commence on Monday 19th March. There will be a bounty of activities taking place to celebrate reading and stimulate awareness of literature. We will have a children’s book author in school, Mr David Bedford, who will work with many of the year groups throughout the week inspiring everyone to exchange and share the books they have written, while also developing students’ writing styles and techniques. On the Friday of Book Week, we will hold our traditional Book Character Parade which always brings a marvellous array of literary (and therefore often film) characters into school.
At the High School on Saturday 31st March through Sunday 1st April, we will be hosting the Marlin Mayhem Swimming Competition. This event gets bigger every year, and this year we will be welcoming over 14 schools for an exciting weekend of swimming meets. Judging by the success of our own Swim Championships during Term 1, the Marlin Mayhem will certainly be a fantastic event for everyone involved.
The Nord Anglia Parents Survey
Today all parents in our school community will receive an email link to this year’s Nord Anglia Parent Survey, and we hope that everyone will try to find 10 minutes to complete this form. Your answers will give us some extremely useful direct feedback about how our school is operating across a wide range of areas.
It will give us valuable insight into areas where we are doing well, as well as areas where our families would like to see improvement. We can then use this information to help phase our development over the next two years. Please take the time to give us your feedback so we can move forward together and immediately focus on the high-priority needs of our community. We strive to exceed expectations, and this survey will go a long way in helping us to do just that.
WoW - Week of Work
Our school wishes to set up a Week of Work (WoW) for our Year 10 students later this year (from the 4th to 8th June). We are reaching out to our community for possible placements in a wide range of businesses across the city that will allow our Year 10 students to gain valuable work experiences for a week.
We want to offer a wide range of choices to our Year 10 students so that they get the opportunity to experience different career professions they might be interested in. This will give our young adults a way to find out more about what could be their chosen career path and gain motivation to work even harder to achieve the best external examination results and progress towards their career goals.
Our Careers and Higher Education Counsellor, Mr Bevin Clark, would really love to hear from you about the sorts of placements you could offer in your businesses.
I am sure you can see the importance of developing such a programme in our High School, so please get involved and allow us to work closely with you produce a truly outstanding work experience programme for our Year 10 students. Please contact Mr Bevin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Khun Pom in the High School Office (email@example.com) to express your interest.
