Key Stage 2: Happy New Year

A Christmas Concert review, as well as information about reports &  parent consultation meetings, and staying safe online.

I hope everyone had a fantastic festive break and have returned ready and raring for another exciting term in KS2 at St Andrews International School Bangkok. Find out about reports and parent consultation meetings, staying safe online and the results of our great Christmas fundraising concert. 

Last term ended on a real high with our Christmas concerts and Christmas Fair. The Fair, which is run by volunteer Y6 students who are supported by their teachers, raised a huge 47,475 Baht. This money will be shared equally between the Bangkok Refugee Centre and The Mercy Centre.

Staying Safe Online  

At St Andrews International School Bangkok, your child takes part in classroom lessons from Common Sense Education’s Digital Citizenship Curriculum, designed to educate and guide young people to harness the power of the Internet and digital tools so they can become safe, responsible, and respectful digital citizens. 

WHAT IS DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP? 

Digital media and technology is evolving at a rapid pace, bringing with it amazing opportunities as well as real risks for our children. On the positive side, young people are using the Internet and mobile technologies to create, connect, explore and learn in ways never before imagined. 

WHAT COMMON SENSE EDUCATION TEACHES 

The core message of the curriculum is one of empowerment: With powerful digital tools that allow for creation and communication comes great responsibility. The curriculum centers on 8 main categories based on the digital ethics research of Dr. Howard Gardner and The GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. 

WHAT FAMILIES CAN DO 

Common Sense Education takes a whole-community approach to digital citizenship by providing parent resources to help you support your kid’s learning. As we engage in these lessons in class, we would like to share the valuable information also available to parents. You can visit the Common Sense website at www.commonsensemedia.org for more parent resources. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Raising and educating young people in today’s 24/7 digital media environment is one of the most exciting and overwhelming challenges that parents and schools face today. Working together with Common Sense Education, we can raise a generation of kids who become smart, responsible, and respectful digital citizens.

Reports and Parent Consultations

The Term 1 reports are now ready to view on Moodle. The parent consultations to discuss the children’s progress will be taking place in weeks two and three next term- Tuesday 14th and Tuesday 21st January. Please use the links below to request a time.

STARs Programme:  Off to a flying start

Looking back at Term 1, our STARs students hit the ground running! Our talented team of teaching and therapy staff embedded individualised learning targets and strategies seamlessly into engaging and motivating programs across all curriculum areas. Our students integrated into a range of mainstream activities, with great success, and channeled more specific skills during small group and individual contexts.  See some of our highlights below.

We had the pleasure of celebrating all our Term 1 achievements at our STARs Christmas Afternoon Tea. We enjoyed playing our ‘Term Highlights’ movie to our families and singing Christmas Songs. We look forward to more productive terms for STARs in 2020!
