Key Stage 2: Fostering a healthy, sustainable environment

Awareness and adherence to our Well Child Policy can help combat the spread of illness at school… Fun Day 2019 is just around the corner… Find a new home for unwanted items at the White Elephant Stall… Buying  Fun Day Raffle Tickets is a great way to support our PTG activities… Let's do our part to keep our environment sustainable.

Well Child Policy

The return to school after the Christmas break is, unfortunately, a time when illnesses seem to be at a high. A number of staff and students have been sick over recent weeks with coughs, cold and in some cases Influenza.  To try and keep everyone fit and healthy, we would like to remind everyone about our Well Child Policy. By working together, we can try and limit the spread of illness.

As a school, we have a rolling programme of Deep Cleaning and where we have a number of cases of illness in a year group, this Deep Clean is repeated. Teachers are vigilant and send children to the nurse when they see that they are unwell, and show them how to cough and sneeze without spreading germs to their friends. However, if your child is showing symptoms such as fever or a runny nose, please don’t give them medicine to allow them to get through the school day.  Keep them home until they are feeling better and if you are in doubt, please take them to the doctor. This way all the other students and their teachers stay healthy and ready for learning.

This is especially important with our KS2 residential trips coming up. If your child is off school in the days before the trip, particularly if they have been diagnosed with influenza, we may ask for a medical certificate to say that they are well enough to attend the trip. If, on the morning of the trip, a child shows signs of illness, we will send them to the nurse to assess whether they are well enough to attend.

Fun Day 2019 is just around the corner

This Saturday, we will be opening our doors at 11 am for our annual Fun Day. This is always one of the highlights of the year and is a chance for our community to get together and enjoy the rides, activities, entertainment,  food and drinks.

To avoid the potential difficulty of trying to find a space in the school car park on Fun Day, why not make use of our shuttle bus service and alternative parking. We will have shuttle buses running between Gateway and the Primary campus if you decide to come by BTS or park at Gateway. You can also park at MaxValu on Sukhumvit 71 (behind the store) and catch a shuttle bus from there. The third option is to park at Suk 71, the new market space accessed from Pridi 24- available from 10 am - 5 pm.

Fun Day 2019

ECAs & Sports Training Cancelled this Friday

To help preparations for Fun Day run safely and smoothly, all ECAs and sport training that normally take place at the Primary campus on Friday afternoons have been cancelled this week. Please ensure that your children are collected promptly at 2.30 p.m.

White Elephant Stall

It’s not too late to have a good clear out and home and find a new home for your unwanted/unloved items by bringing them in for our White Elephant stall at Fun Day.

280119 ks2 1

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

Don’t forget to try and sell/buy all of the raffle tickets that the children brought home last week. There will also an opportunity to buy extra tickets on the day to be in with a chance of winning one of the amazing prizes on offer, including an iPhone XS, a Garmin Sport watch, a Dell laptop (in line with High School specifications), Apple Airpods and an exciting flight simulator experience.

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.

Sustainability @ St Andrews

Last Friday, we had a special assembly to re-cap on all of the fantastic activities that took place across the year groups as part of sustainability week. Mrs Helen - who coordinated sustainability week - led the children through a series of videos produced during the week, as well as showing photos of what happened in the classrooms. This was a lovely end to our sustainability week activities, but not the end of the children’s enthusiasm for doing their bit to help our planet- whether it be reducing their use of single-use plastics or helping encourage others to recycle their waste.

This weekend, our very own Mr Ewen had an article published in the Bangkok Post. He covered the recent Eco-BEASTs Community Action Day which was hosted here at St Andrews. You can read his article here.

Attention car drivers - Doing our bit for the environment and our health

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.
