Remembrance Sunday STA

Heads Lines: An unforgettable break time!

Lightning-quick decisions were made during the Primary House Recycling Race, the Primary Counselling Workshop was very informative, keep a lookout for this week's fantastic Juilliard visitors and see what St Andrews did for Remembrance Sunday.

Primary Recycling House Competition

Last Friday at break time there was a great House competition held in the Sports Hall at Primary School. Four teams of students from each of our Houses - Yao, Lahu, Karen and Akha - came together with the unique objective of racing around obstacles and picking up things which could be recycled. These materials had to be placed in the appropriate Houses’ bins at the opposite end of the Sports Hall. The din of excitement was tremendous as children frantically collected a variety of materials and made lightning quick decisions about which bins they should be deposited in. The raucous cheering was really a sight to behold, and without a doubt,  this enjoyable break time competition left an indelible impression. Once time was called, judges reviewed each House’s bin bounty, while everyone else tidied away all the remaining materials uncollected on the gym floor before returning to their classes.

Want to find out which House won? The winners of this competition are waiting to be unveiled in the House section of the Newsletter below.

Juilliard Music - Professional Development and Workshops

As previewed in last week’s Newsletter, our Juilliard consultant Brian Drye, who himself is a trombone player and true Jazz specialist, was online all week working with our cross-campus music teams. Our fledgeling musicians had a great feedback session with Mr Drye last Friday, and he expressed how impressed he was with all the children and staff he had seen and worked with throughout the week.

The week featured a session on creative repetition, which is often used in music practice to perfect skills. Brian had some insightful ideas on how to make practice not seem repetitive by taking advantage of all the different ways one could interpret and undertake musical pieces to be learnt and developed. He also had the opportunity to observe some lessons in Primary and High School and provide feedback to our teachers. Finally, this amazing jazz artist conducted sessions with both the High School Jazz Band and Primary Orchestra that was really enjoyed by all.  The whole exercise proved that distance is no obstacle to bringing music to life (thanks to Zoom) and that no matter how far apart we are, music can still bring us together.

There is still much more to come, as this week there will be Juilliard specialists also visiting both Dance and Drama lessons and working closely with teachers across the school. The training and workshops emanating from these collaborations are sure to be an unforgettable experience for all involved.

Primary Counselling Workshop
Last Friday was one of the first PTG Coffee Mornings in which Ms Amy, our Head of Counselling, provided an overview of the wellbeing provisions and preventative programmes available in Primary School. It was also great chance to hear feedback on how students are managing the academic year so far in the face of such uncertain times. Ms Amy explained the digital citizenship curriculum and the anti-bullying initiatives which are vital parts of our wellbeing support programme. If you missed this event or would like to learn more about counselling services at St Andrews, please visit the section in Moodle called “STAtimetotalk”. In fact, if you click on the parents section, you will find all the recent workshop presentations.

Ms Amy also explained that at the end of the month there will be an in-depth discussion on Social Media and your child. This session will explore the current trends and research related to social media usage in our KS2 students. All Primary School parents are encouraged to attend in order to stay abreast of the technology students have at their fingertips - as we know children are always a few steps ahead of us in this regard! The workshop will run on Friday 27th November at 8:15 am in the Exam Room.

Remembrance Sunday

On Sunday 8th November our school took part in the Annual Service of Remembrance held at the British Club. Alongside Mr. Roo, our students laid a wreath at the War Cenotaph and observed two minutes of silence remembering with pride and gratitude those men and women who suffered and died in war.

Keeping our community safe: Health and Travel Declaration Form Update

In order to have the most up to date information regarding everyone's health and travel, we request that everyone takes a moment to update the Health and Travel Declaration Form found on your parent Moodle page.

health & Travel

This information will only be used by the Ministry of Public Health should an outbreak of Coronavirus occur within our school community. The details of where individual families may have travelled will help the MoPH screen, track and trace transmission of COVID-19 to ensure it is fully controlled and isolated.

While Thailand's coronavirus cases remain low it is essential that we as a community stay vigilant. Everyone who comes onto the school sites must wear an appropriate face mask or face shield. Temperature screening will continue to take place at the entries to both of our school campuses, and anyone presenting with a high temperature will be taken to School Nurse for further observation before going home. Please do not let your children come to school if they have fever, coughs or colds.

Please note that everyone who comes to school should be able to participate in all school activities, including swimming, unless they have a doctor’s certificate stating clear and precise reasons why this should not be the case.

Vaccination Programme

For a number of years, we have been hosting a Flu Vaccination Programme for our school community. Last year, we were pleased to report that over 500 people in our school community received the flu vaccination in school- 221 STA staff and 228 students and parents.

Vaccine

This year’s Flu Vaccination Programme will be held on Friday 27th November between 1 pm and 4 pm in the Drama Studio at the Primary School. The programme, in collaboration with Samitivej Hospital, will be open to all members of the family at a price of 590 baht per shot.

How to register

The programme is popular, and this year we anticipate a tremendous turnout. To make sure we have ordered enough vaccines, we ask that you complete the form below to register. Please note that one form must be completed for each person who is to receive the vaccine.

With parental consent, High School students may take the shuttle bus over to Primary at 2.30pm to receive their vaccination independently.

School Calendar

Our school will follow the recently updated school calendar that has been shared with our school community and is available on our school website. We realise the Government has recently brought in some additional holidays in November and altered holiday dates in December. However, St Andrews will not be adding any additional holidays or making any further changes to the calendar.

For your convenience, you can find the updated school calendar for 2020-2021 here.
