Meat Free Mondays

Ms Helen and the STA Eco-Beasts have been working hard all year on a number of sustainability related projects. Their newest, and most exciting project is Meat Free Mondays. This initiative, which was the brainchild of Sir Paul McCartney and his daughters, Mary and Stella. They are encouraging people to give up meat for one day a week to try and combat some of the environmental effects of the meat industry. You can watch their short video on this concept below. At St Andrews, we would like to push Monday as a meat free day in school. Families would, of course, still be able to eat meat at home on Mondays, but it would be fantastic if everyone could join in at both school and home.  

Our Eco-Beast Club, have already presented this idea to our Primary School SLT and to Mr Walter from Epicure, and we are all very keen to become the first school in Thailand to have a Meat free Monday. We will be trialling this both next week and the last week of term- Mondays 17 and 24 of June. Mr Walter has already been compiling some amazing vegetarian recipes to use on our meat free Mondays, but if you have any delicious vegetarian recipe ideas, please share them with us and we will see if we can add these to the menu too. Recipes can be emailed to helen.mu@standrews.ac.th">helen.mu@standrews.ac.th.

STEAM Week

Last week’s Project Week at High School was a resounding success with all year 6 pupils taking on an active role within their group. Each project was different, aiming at tackling ‘real world problems’ from making a fashion statement using clothes made from trash to exploring the sustainable effects of solar panels. Whilst some children developed mosquito traps in an attempt to reduce the harmful effects of malaria and dengue others explored fair trade and sustainable products to design, create and market their own beauty products.

The students worked within groups comprising of pupils from years 6, 7, 8 and 9. Some of the projects enabled students to learn and use new technical skills, using specific pieces of equipment to measure light and sound, or exploring new tools and machinery in the DT workshops, or using different computer programs to produce technical drawings, create videos or code. While other projects challenged the students to gain new knowledge or push themselves to meet new expectations.

In addition to learning new skills, all the projects aimed to promote and develop the pupils’ 21st century skills - reasoning, generating ideas, discussion, prioritising, delegation, perseverance and determination. Our students enjoyed working with different pupils, getting to know some of the High School teachers and familiarising themselves with what will soon be their new campus.

At the end of the week there was a showcase for students and parents, to show off what they had learnt and produced, providing an interesting opportunity to present their ideas to a real audience. It was great to hear their new found knowledge and to talk enthusiastically on a range of topics.

Y6 Leavers Party

Last Thursday afternoon, the Y6 students got their glad rags on for their celebration of coming to the end of their time in the Primary school. The children had a great time celebrating with their friends as they let their hair down.  They even squeezed in some filming for the Y6 Leavers video, which will be aired during the Leavers assembly on Friday 21 June.

Recycling at St Andrews - a new initiative

Last Thursday, we held our first ever ‘Trash Thursday’ at school. This is an opportunity for everyone in our community to recycle any old paper or cardboard. As well as paper and card, for our next event, we will also be accepting any old plastic bottles that you have. This will be held on Thursday 20 June. There will be two large bins at the main entrance from the car park. They will be there from first thing in the morning until 11.00 a.m. Each bin will be clearly labelled.
