The Summer Party
A huge thank you to the PTG for organising the end of term Summer Party at Viva Thonglor. There was a really great atmosphere with many parents, teaching and administration staff enjoying food, drink and music together. Thank you to our PTG for all they have done this year to bring our school community together. This party was an enjoyable celebration of the all that hard work, as well as all the friendships forged, over this past school year.
Parent Survey Feedback
In May 2018, Nord Anglia education released a parental survey to each of our families to complete over a three-week period. We have now had the report come back to school with its findings, and the graphic below highlights the top three and bottom three areas singled out by the 502 parents, or 44% of our entire parent community, who completed the survey. We will certainly be working with the PTG and the whole school community to look at ways these bottom three areas can be addressed immediately so that we can continue to improve the services we offer over the years to come.
Our International Accreditation and British Overseas School Reports
Following 5 months of reflection and discussion, our school produced a self review document across eight board standards that our international accreditation agency, The Education Trust, sets to ensure that St Andrews fully reviews its operations against accepted international standards for schools. In May 2018 a team of four British inspectors came to our school for a week-long inspection against our self review report to ensure that what we had achieved and how the school was managed was reflected in the actual operations occurring around the entire school.
It has been a stressful year for many reasons, but the final inspection week with the Education Trust team was an especially challenging one. As a management team, we knew this year would be difficult due to the new situation of our two campuses. However, we felt that it was worth reviewing carefully the merits of our two campus model to ensure that what we built on this further improved the education provided to our students. Having to carefully review where we were leading up to this Term 3 inspection was certainly, in retrospect, a very good thing. The accreditation reports that we have received state that St Andrews International School Bangkok has maintained its outstanding status as we have moved to the two campus model. From these reports, we shall be looking at ways to further improve the learning environment and how we manage many aspects of the school to ensure that we continue to work with our whole school community.
