Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Teachers go back to school

Two of our teachers in FS and KS1 have received their Masters in International Education. Many congratulations to them...Some very useful lessons were learned during Sustainability Week… Drivers are reminded to turn off their engines in the school car park … Raffle tickets for Fun Day will be sent home this week.

Congratulations

As a teacher, one of the great things about working at St Andrews International School Bangkok is the opportunities we get to develop our professional practice. We have access to all kinds of training courses to make sure that what we offer the children is both current and forward-thinking. Some of these courses take a few hours to complete, whilst others have a much longer commitment.

This week we say congratulations to Ms Meg King and Ms Emma Mulligan, who have recently completed their Masters in International Education with King’s College London.

Sustainability Week

Last week the whole of the Primary School was actively involved in Sustainability Week and each year group worked on different, age-appropriate projects. Year 1, for example, looked at food waste by weighing what they put onto their plate at lunchtime but didn’t actually eat. They all resolved to be a bit more mindful about the amount of food that they took, knowing that if they are still hungry they can still go back for a little bit more.

Lots of families have also joined us in saying NO to plastic bags and sent in photos of them doing just that in the supermarket this week. As we have been saying to the children, every little helps.

An appeal to all car drivers

Everyone is Bangkok is acutely aware of the pollution problems that the city is experiencing, and we explained last week about the way we manage this in school regarding break times. Surprisingly, this important community concern has not filtered through to some users of our car parks and we are still finding cars that are idling whilst waiting for students to come out of school.

Could we please make a renewed plea for everyone to talk to their family drivers and ask them to please turn off engines whilst waiting to pick up children?  We understand that getting into a hot car is not pleasant, but it only takes a minute or two for the aircon to work its magic. Better that than adding to the air pollution around school.

Foundation Stage Physical Fun Day

On Friday morning we were very pleased to see that the pollution levels had dropped dramatically, and we were able to give the go-ahead for the Foundation Stage Physical Fun Day. There was a cool breeze blowing as everyone warmed up to the Dinosaur Stomp before breaking into groups to join in with a range of different activities including parachute games, obstacle races and bikes.

Families came along to join in and support, and a healthy snack finished off the morning’s activity. A big thank you to Ms Meg and the Foundation Stage team for all of their hard work.

White Elephant

As Fun Day approaches we are encouraging everyone to dig through their cupboards and wardrobes, browse their bookshelves and sort through the toy box to find as many items as possible to donate to our “White Elephant Stall”.

Some of you might know the White Elephant stall as a rummage sale - the place where once loved items or unwanted gifts can find another home. For the last two years this has been one of the most popular attractions of the Fun Day because, let’s face it, everyone loves a bargain!

Please bring your donations and put them into the House Boxes you can see appearing around school. Attach your child’s name, class and House to earn some house points too. The money from this stall will go to a worthy charity - details to follow.

Fun Day Raffle Tickets

As Fun Day approaches and excitement rises, it is time to launch the annual Fun Day Raffle Draw.

Every year there are fabulous prizes to be won and this year is no different. Early this week each child will bring home one book of tickets. Tickets are 50B each or 500B for the book. Money and ticket stubs should be returned to the Accounts Office along with any unwanted tickets that can then be resold. If you need more books these can also be collected from the Office. High School students will also bring home a book of tickets when they return from residentials next week.

Fun Day is the only fund-raising event for our PTG and the sale of raffle tickets is a big part of that. Please do sell as many tickets as you can to help our PTG continue to support our community.
