“New to Bangkok” Coffee Morning
It was great to see so many parents from both High School and Primary School at our Coffee Morning last Thursday at the Primary campus. Parents who have been part of our community for some time were able to offer friendly advice and recommendations on anything from dentists to hairdressers and anything else that could help parents new to Bangkok settle into life here.
Given the success of this coffee morning, the PTG Committee hopes to launch regular “drop-in” sessions at both Primary and High School where parents can stop by, have a coffee and a chat. In this way, we hope to continue to build and strengthen the community at St Andrews International School Bangkok.
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. Parents who are interested in joining the Committee are kindly asked to send a short bio and picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions of candidatures is 7 September 2018.
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 at 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.
International Day Country Coordinators’ Meeting
Last year’s country coordinators have already received an email asking if they can help again this year but as there are so many new parents, if you are interested in representing your country at International Day (Friday 12 October in Primary and Friday 19 October in High School) please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Country coordinators are invited to attend the first organization meeting for International Day which will be held on Friday this week (7 September) at 09.00 a.m. in the Drama Studio at the Primary School. International Day is an amazing celebration of the diversity of the community here at St Andrews and the International Food Buffet organized by the parents is a highlight of the day.
