Head’s Lines: The sustainable benefits of collaboration

Year 13 Theatre Arts students at St Andrews International School Bangkok performed their amazing final examination pieces...ECOBeasts congregated and came up with creative environmental solutions during Sustainability Day...International Day at High School is this Friday, to be followed Primary International Day the following week...We commemorate the passing late great King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Sunday along with a holiday on Monday, 14th October.

Last Thursday I was fortunate to be in the audience when our Year 13 Theatre Arts students performed their final examination pieces. The two fantastic group performances showcased the seamless collaboration such an endeavour requires, while also demonstrating a deep understanding of the themes explored in their work. The pieces delved into timely topics such as the recent Amazon Rainforest fires and more universal themes like the hopefulness and challenges of achieving our aspirations. Their approach to the work was very imaginative and invoked a mesmerising combination of multimedia, masks and movement to engage and transport all in attendance. 

Congratulations to all the students and teachers who brought these creative visions to life.

A Sustainable School

In school we continue the momentum from recent climate change gatherings by mobilising our students and community at large to come up with ways we can live more sustainably. Through these actions we hope to counter  the dramatic effects of climate change our world has just begun to experience. Any such plan must include reducing the effects of wider pollution, especially waste from plastics.

Following Friday’s worldwide Climate Strike, our High School initiated a Global Action Week, which our Head of High School, Mr Roo, described in last week’s  Newsletter. There were lots of great activities throughout the week focused on raising awareness about what each of us can do. I know the High School Student Sustainability Group will continue their work with the whole school community to help us operate in a more environmentally sustainable way.

Last Friday at our Primary School campus, we commenced the day with a Sustainability Assembly.  Our student ECOBeast presenters issued a clarion call to the whole school community about making a difference and continually striving to be a more sustainable school throughout this year.  This lead really well into Mr Jon, our Primary Science Coordinator, setting out what was going to be happening during Science Week across the Primary School and his challenge for everyone to be involved in at least one sustainable science activity.  These projects are proceeding well across the school and also have the added benefit of being great fun for all students involved.

On Monday 7th October our school hosted, for the second year running, our EcoBeasts Sustainability Day.  We had student groups from 20 other international schools who came to our school to collaborate and present their projects for making their school more sustainable and reducing plastic and other waste. The day included workshops conducted by a wide range of eco-friendly businesses that collect and recycle waste materials.  They also promoted more organic ways of farming and encouraged the use of packaging that is not plastic based. These workshops were followed by a great ECOBeasts Sustainability and Wellness Market in which our whole school community could come and purchase products produced along sustainable lines. It certainly was both eye opening and very interesting to see what was available across a wide range of products whose purchase and use does not cause damage to the local and global environment.

International Day

On Friday 11th October at High School campus we shall be celebrating our first International Day of the school year. Each year group in High School will be exploring a different continent for the day and participating in activities that familiarise students with the traditions, cultures, pastimes and even sports in each continent. Many of these activities have been designed by tutors, but they have also incorporated student ideas and suggestions to create a really exciting day for all. Here are how the different continents have assigned:

  • Year 7: Oceania

  • Year 8: South America

  • Year 9: Asia

  • Year 10: Antarctica and Europe 

  • Year 11: North America

  • Senior Studies: Africa

With 49 different nationalities represented in the High School’s International Day, we are looking forward to another fantastic event where we celebrate our own traditions while also learning about others in our community. We will be celebrating throughout break time, lunch and in assemblies with fascinating dance and choir performances, as well as the fantastic food hall generously being organised by parent representatives and our PTG.

On the last day of the half term, Friday 18th October, the Primary School will celebrate their International Day. 

The day for Foundation Stage will begin at 8am with their ‘catwalk’ of International Costumes. Following that, two assemblies will take place. Each assembly will start with the flag parade and be followed by some great music pieces produced and performed by our musical ensembles who have been practising to be ready for this performance.
