Primary Canteen Working Group
The Canteen Working Group has collected all the responses to their questionnaire on the quality of lunches served at the Primary School and are now planning to meet with Epicure to discuss with them ways to move forward and take into consideration parents’ opinions. One overwhelming result was that parents would appreciate knowing the source of the food on offer to our children and this will be at the forefront of future discussions. If you did not have the chance to fill out the questionnaire but have comments or suggestions for the Working Group, please don’t hesitate to send them to us by email to email@example.com.
What does success mean to you?
On Friday 18 May parents are invited to a coffee morning for a discussion on the definition of success. The topic will be presented by Natalie Glebova and Dr Patama Mokaves Dumas. Given the pressures our children face in today’s world, this is a great opportunity to learn more about what success means to us as individuals and how to help our children be successful in whichever direction that takes them. The coffee morning will be held in the Jo Adamson Theatre at High School and starts at 08.00 a.m. All parents are welcome whether your children are in High School or Primary School and don’t worry if you were not able to sign up on the Google form that was sent out. We look forward to seeing you there.
Lost and Found Reclaim Day
Lost and Found in Primary is running out of space. To remedy this, we will be holding a “Lost items reclaim day” on Tuesday, 5 June 2018. This is a chance for parents and students alike to pass by and take anything that they have lost. Anything not reclaimed on that day and that has been handed in to Lost and Found up to the Songkran holidays will be given to charity.
One of the biggest problems that the Lost and Found volunteers face is hats. There is an unbelievable number of hats handed in every day. Hats that have a child’s name on will be returned to the student. Other STA hats will be put in a general usage basked for children to use at break and lunch time to comply with school’s “no hat no play” policy. Other non-uniform hats that are handed in are kept in Lost and Found. Please take the time to check everything that your children bring into school. Lost items that have names on are returned to the student.
We hope everyone has their diaries handy as the PTG Summer Party will be held on Friday 15 June 2018 at Viva Thonglor – a fantastic location on Thonglor between soi 19 and soi 21. There will be food, drink and music - the perfect combination for a fantastic celebration of another great year at St Andrews International School Bangkok. This is an event not to be missed.
PTG Committee looking forward
The PTG’s Annual General Meeting will be held shortly after the start of the next academic year to give new parents joining our school the chance to hear about all our achievements this past year and to have the opportunity to get involved in PTG activities. More information will be sent out soon.
PTG Facebook Group
Don’t forget we have a very lively Facebook page where you can keep up with everything that is going on at school but also you can use it as a means to get in touch with other people. This is just one of the many ways that the PTG is working to strengthen our school community.
As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any suggestions, questions or concerns. The easiest way to reach us is by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or many of us are around in the mornings both at Primary and High School and you are welcome to have a chat at any time.
