Head’s Lines: A kaleidoscope of cultures and colours

International Day, one of the highlights of the St Andrews International School Bangkok calendar, is just around the corner at both Primary and High School...There will be no school on Monday, 14th October as we remember and commemorate the passing of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

International Day

As we look towards the final three weeks of this first half term, time seems to have really flown by.  It certainly has been very busy and these last three weeks certainly have lots going on. The highlight of this period though will be our International Days at High School and Primary School.

On  Friday 11th October at High School campus we shall be celebrating our first International Day.  This year each year group in High School students will be exploring a different continent for the day. They will then be engaged in a variety of activities throughout the event getting to know about  traditions, cultures, exploration 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 those of others in the 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 which is generously being organised by parent representatives and our PTG.

Following the High School celebration, on the last day of the half term, Friday 18th October, the Primary School will enjoy 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.

During break, there will be a cultural show in the quad organised by parents and students. Last year this was one of the highlights of the day.

Each of the Primary class teachers has chosen a country and an activity to put together for their class, and then two more classes who will come to visit the country they are representing during the morning.  There are always some interesting and great displays around the school really giving every child a great experience. The highlight is the food hall which every child and adult enjoys visiting and tasting the marvellous food on offer from around the world of cultures we have within our school community.  

Timings for the day will be sent to you shortly.

A huge thank you must go to our PTG and the country representatives for all the work they have put into setting up the food halls and cultural displays for the vast array of nationalities in our school community at both High School and Primary School campuses. I know these two events will really be a great celebration of diversity in our school community and help us to better understand each other.  It is always great to see all our children dressed in their national costumes or clothes that represent their culture and country.

This is always a really great day for our whole school community, and I sincerely hope you will be able to attend and celebrate alongside everyone.
