Primary School Library: Countdown to visiting author

Children celebrated Valentine’s Day by celebrating their love of books; we look forward to welcoming Jonathan Camm to the Primary School Library next week and we launch our “Design a T-shirt for Book Week” competition. We are collecting books for our Used Book Sale so please have a look through your shelves and donate books that you no longer need.

Visit of Jonathan Camm - Thursday 7 March

St Andrews International School Bangkok is delighted to be hosting the English, Hua Hin-based, author, Jonathan Camm, for a visit to the Primary School next week. Jonathan will be here during the day on Thursday 7 March working with the children during a series of workshops and also chatting about, selling and signing copies of his books in the Library during break time, lunchtime and after school. He may even read to us from one of his stories time permitting so this is very exciting.
