Fun Day Raffle Draw
Our cancelled Fun Day was to have a raffle for some great prizes which the PTG had already provided. Therefore we shall continue to run this activity this term, pulling the winning tickets on the last day of term at our Songkhran assembly celebrations. Raffle tickets will once again go on sale from Monday across the school and I hope you will want to get involved in this bit of fun for the end of term. The top 5 prizes are and iPhone X; Dell laptop (High School standard); a Garmin activity watch; a flight simulator experience @ Gateway and Apple Air Pods.
All proceeds from the raffle go to the PTG, which supports various student projects throughout the year. In the past they have provided funding for Prom (both Y12 and Y6), carnival game gifts for school or charity events, and the drinks sold by students as part of their fundraising activities for Tanzania. They have offered the use of their chocolate fountain and now have two popcorn machines. They are sponsoring sustainable water bottles for an upcoming Model United Nations event held at STA. They present a gift to each member of the graduating class and organize the Summer Party. This is why they are asking for your help for this year’s raffle in particular. They have lost their main source of funding for this year – Fun Day – so the raffle is their only way of raising money to support student activities and community-building events.
Your support is much appreciated.
Please write your child’s name and tutor group on the tickets. The numbers of the remaining prizes (plenty of vouchers) will be posted in writing at both school offices and in the first Newsletter of Term 3.
Education Trust Consultant In School
This week we welcome Sally Lane, who is our Education Trust Consultant into school. Sally works for our accreditation agency - the UK based, Education Trust (EDT) - who we work with in an international accreditation cycle leading up to an inspection every 3 years. In May 2018 our school was awarded their international Accreditation at a Gold outstanding level following a very rigorous self review and inspection week. At this time we were also awarded the prestigious British School Overseas Award (BSO) which means our standards of management, operation and teaching and learning are at the same very high level that you would find in a British-based independent school. Sally will spend Monday this week in High School visiting a wide range of classrooms with the curriculum department managers, feeding back to them and the senior leadership team what she finds and observes during these sessions. On Tuesday she will be at the Primary School looking at standards of teaching and learning.
Last day of ECAs and Sports Squads for Term 2
Please be sure to check out this link to find out when your child’s ECAs and sports squads at both Primary and High School will end for Term 2,
Thank you to everyone who has already completed the Leavers Survey that was sent out. Thanks to this information, work is already underway to ensure that classes for next year are balanced so that every student can be afforded the best possible learning experience. However, if you have not yet completed this survey, we would appreciate your response as soon as possible, as it is also very important for our Admissions Team to have an idea of the number of new families we can welcome into our community next academic year.
