International Day 2018
Thank you to all the Country Coordinators who came to the first International Day planning meeting on Friday. As a reminder, International Day in Primary will be held on Friday, 12 October 2018 and in High School on Friday, 19 October 2018. All parents will be hearing from their country coordinators asking for contributions to the International Food Buffet which is, without doubt, the highlight of the day for students and teachers alike. It is always an amazing sight to see the Sports Hall in Primary and the Atrium in High School decorated and full of people learning about each other’s food and culture. It just underlines the hugely diverse community we have here at St Andrews International School Bangkok.
If you don’t hear from your country coordinator or if you are new to school and do not know if your country has been represented in the past, please send us a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to those parents who have expressed an interest in joining the PTG Committee for the coming year.
The existing Committee will step down and, together with the new applicants, stand for (re)election. Elections will be held during the AGM on Tuesday, 25 September in the Drama Studio at the Primary School.
Lost and Found at Primary School
Please find below the procedure for the management of Lost and Found at Primary School. Lost and Found is run by parent volunteers so if you have some spare time and would like to help out, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch by email on email@example.com.
Any items found at any time deemed valuable, such as money/wallets, electronics, jewellery or items of personal significance/emotional value such as a photo must be taken immediately to the School Office.
Any other items found during the day that are not being directly supervised or attended to by another student should remain in the same location, allowing the owner to return to where they left it and collect it themselves.
Any items still found to be unattended or attached to a student at the end of the day are to be collected by Estates staff and delivered to the Lost Property Room.
Lost Property will open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for children to retrieve items. Parents can come anytime to look and retrieve lost items. The key can be borrowed from the School Office.
Any items clearly marked with a student’s name will be returned to the child’s classroom, with the exception of hats. Hats will stay in lost property until retrieved.
Un-named items (non uniform) will be kept in Lost Property for 1 month and will then be passed onto charity. Un-named uniforms/hats will be kept in Lost Property for 2 months and will then be handed over to our Second-hand Uniform Shop to be sold. Proceeds from the sale of second-hand uniform is given to charity.
It is extremely important that all items that your child brings into school be clearly marked with their name and, where possible, their class. This will make it much easier for lost items to be returned to their owners.
