Songkran Celebration - 5 April
The next big event on this Term’s agenda is the Songkran Celebration, which is the celebration of the Thai New Year. Every year we celebrate Songkran in school by giving alms to the monks who visit our school to offer their blessings, taking part in a cultural assembly and playing traditional games, including the very popular water play.
Families new to Thailand will see that flowery Songkran shirts are starting to appear in the shops and markets. These shirts, or similar bright colours are the “school uniform” for Thursday 5 April - our Songkran celebration and last day of term, so please make sure your child has something suitable to wear.
Small food parcels for three monks maximum - optional
Songkran shirt or dress
A change of clothes (including underwear) for after the water play
A small towel
Swimsuit - optional
Water shoes if you have any, or shoes you don’t mind getting wet
NO WATER GUNS - we will provide water pots for the children to use
As we move into the hot season we have noticed that not all of the children are wearing hats.
Please make sure that you apply sunscreen as appropriate before the children leave for school and that they have hats and water bottles with them.
This term’s parent consultations will be held on Tuesday 27 March and Tuesday 3 April. This is your opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and get an insight into how well they are doing in school. If you would like to make an appointment, please use the links for each year group below. The teachers will try and accommodate time slot requests as closely as possible to your choices, but some time slots prove to be very popular and you may be offered an alternative.
Each child is allocated a 15-minute consultation. If you feel you need more time than this, which is often the case with families with children who receive some kind of specific support - EAL, Learning Support, etc.- you have the option to arrange an appointment outside of the appointed consultation days. Please contact the class teacher directly to do this. They will arrange an appointment for you before or after school on a day/time that is convenient for everyone.
You can check the confirmed appointment times by clicking on this link, which will give you access to the Google folder which contains spreadsheets for each year group. Please note that the teachers will be updating these regularly over the course of the next week, so please keep checking back to find your appointment.
*There may be slight adjustments to times over the week to fit everyone in as closely as possible to their requested times.
