Key Stage 2: Book Week … in the books

A week of book related activities and celebrations culminated in crowd-pleasing book character parades. We look forward to Songkran events this week followed by our term break. Don’t forget to book your preferred slot now for parent consultations upon return from the holiday break.

Book Week 2019

Books! Books! Books! That was certainly the theme last week in school. Another fantastic Book Week was enjoyed by students, staff and parents alike. There was such a lovely buzz around the school.

Throughout the week, so many super reading-related events were run by the teachers at morning breaks and lunchtimes, such as: book-marking making, quizzes galore, script writing, book board game making and drawing masterclasses. There were so many wonderful competitions too, so lots of house points were earned by the children.

We had lots of events in and around the library too. Paragon Asia and Book Link both came in and were selling discounted books. We also had a used book sale. Children in KS2 could watch Dr. Seuss: the Lorax, and other super competitions could be entered.

Our visiting author- Karin Littlewood- was in all week holding presentations and running workshops with all EYFS and Primary children. Not only was she a hit with everyone, she also said what an amazing week she had had. Karin commented on the lovely atmosphere in school, and said we had great children, who were talented, polite and asked her some wonderful questions.

She was the best author that I have worked with from Author’s Abroad - very engaging, had good behaviour management and the children thoroughly enjoyed their workshop with her. They can’t wait to finish creating their story necklaces! - Mrs Kat

Our Book Week rounded off with our annual book character parades. Everyone looked super in their costumes. Thank you to all the parents, who had helped to make the costumes. You efforts are truly appreciated. Any winners of competitions, as well as the best costume from each class, were announced during the assemblies. A big thanks to Miss Cherry for choreographing an amazing book-themed dance, and also to Mrs Alice and Mrs Marie, who taught the STA Sing Girls choir an outstanding book-themed song ‘Words are Ours.’

Reports and Parents Consultations

The Term 2 reports will be available to view this Friday on Moodle. Parents will have a chance to meet with the class teachers on the first two Tuesdays back after the Songkran break- Tuesday 23rd and Tuesday 30th April. You can use the links in the first tabel to request a time slot for the appointments. The teachers will use this to create a schedule, which can be seen using the links in the second table. As always, the teachers may be available to meet outside of the appointed days, but you will need to liaise directly with them to arrange a day and time.

Songkran Celebrations

On Friday this week, the last day of term, we will have our annual Songkran celebration. The day will be organised slightly differently to previous years so please read the following schedule carefully if you plan to join us for the ceremony.

We ask that all children come to school wearing a Songkran shirt. These brightly coloured, flowery shirts are currently available in all supermarkets and local markets.

Each year we arrange a traditional alms giving ceremony and invite monks from the local temple to collect the offerings and give a blessing. This is a fascinating experience for all of the students, allowing them to share in an important cultural event, but it is optional.

The day will begin with optional almsgiving on the field. Children not taking part will remain on their year group's floor. This will be followed by a Songkran assembly.

In the afternoon, the children will get a chance to cool down with some water play on the field. Please note that water guns are not allowed for the water play-school will provide a small cup for the children to use. All children MUST bring the following on Friday for the water play:

  • a towel to dry off with

  • a complete set of clothes to change into

Water Play timings

  • FS1 & FS2 - 10.30 am
  • FS3 - 12.30 pm
  • Y1 & Y2 - 1.10 pm
  • Y3 & Y4 - 1.35 pm
  • Y5 & Y6 - 2.00 pm

Grand Raffle Draw

Don’t forget, the Raffle that was postponed due to the cancellation of Fun Day will now take place this Friday during the first Songkran Assembly at Primary School. The top 5 prizes, which include an iPhone and a laptop, will be announced at the Songkran assemblies on both campuses on 5 April.

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 also offered the use of their chocolate fountain for school events and they now also have two popcorn machines. They are sponsoring sustainable water bottles for an upcoming Model United Nations event held at STA. In addition they  present a gift to each member of the graduating class. and they organise 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.

Good luck and thank you.

Announcing the arrival of the White Elephant

elephant

We were all disappointed at the cancelation of Fun Day this year, none more so than the parents and staff who were collecting donations for our White Elephant Charity Stall. With so many of your donations being stored by the Estates Department we wanted to make sure that the sale went ahead this term.

This Friday, at the Primary School, we will be holding the White Elephant Sale after the Songkran alms giving and assemblies.  The sale will be held in the Drama Studio and the doors will open at 10.00 a.m. The stall is open all day for parents who wish to find a bargain.  There are toys, clothes, books, ornaments, games and lots of other interesting things to find at very cheap prices.

The children will have a chance to visit the stall at break times and during the school day so please send up to 100 baht in a named envelope or purse with your child.

In the interest of a sustainable environment, please bring your own shopping bags.

Leavers’ Survey

Thank you to everyone who has already completed the Leavers Survey that was sent out. If you have not yet done so, we would appreciate your response as soon as possible (click here) as work is already underway to make sure that classes for next year are balanced and will give every student the best possible learning experience. It is also very important for our Admissions Team to have an idea of how many new families we will be able to welcome into our community.

*Please note, you only need to complete this form once.
