Not to be outdone, on Monday our High School students will have staged their Christmas production, “The Night before Christmas” which I am very much looking forward to seeing. I know that this performance will set a proper tone to the final week of Term 1 in High School, especially because on Thursday, Years 7- 9 will each conduct their own musical concerts. To top the festivities off, this year's High School Christmas Fair will also be running throughout the day this Thursday.
To say that this term has been a long and challenging one would be an understatement. Nevertheless, it has been a great blessing that we could all be back in school and that almost all our annual events took place in some form, often modified to ensure we all stay safe.
On Friday 18th December, the final day of a term unlike any other, students will only be at school for a half day and our campuses will close for the holidays at 12:30pm.
Nord Anglia Education (NAE) Parents Survey.
It would be of great help if everyone could find the time to complete the NAE Parents Survey which you should have received by email. To really provide a strong mandate for developments our families wish to see at school, it is vital that we have a high percentage of the school community complete the survey. Your feedback gives us very useful information which we can use to continue to further improve as a school, focusing on how we are performing, managing the curriculum, improving the facilities and further developing many of the administrative services the school offers to support parents.
This survey will take about 15 minutes to complete, and is completely anonymous with the answers going directly to the central organising team of NAE. This team analyses each school’s responses to the questions, feeding their findings back to the school to enable us to put in place improvement plans that will hopefully deal with the mains areas of concern expressed.
I hope that you can please take the time to share your thoughts and opinions through this tool.
Term 1 is coming to a successful end
I would like to thank our PTG for all their hard work throughout this term, especially the two wonderful international food halls they organised, as well as all the Christmas fun over the last couple of weeks.
I know you will join me in giving a special thank you to all our school staff, teachers, teaching assistants and administrators. Their hard work has really made this a very positive and successful term, and I hope everyone has a chance to relax and enjoy the cooler weather, as you visit the many wonderful places all over Thailand in the coming three weeks.
I wish our whole school community a very happy holiday in which they relax and enjoy a peaceful and safe time. Please make note of where you go so you can fill in your Health Declaration Form just before we all come back to school on Monday 11th December. Please take great care wherever you go, continuing to wear your masks and maintaining social distance to stay fit and healthy.
The closing of this year 2020 will hopefully bring us all into a very positive, happy and successful 2021. I wish you all a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Health & Travel
Our school will continue to remain vigilant with measures like temperature checking everyone who enters either of our school’s campuses and requiring that everyone on campus wears face masks or shields. I’m proud to say that, on the whole, our community has been very good with following these precautions while at school.
As many of us in our community have been traveling around Thailand, it would be greatly appreciated if everyone upon returning to Bangkok could keep their Health & Travel Declaration Form (found on Moodle) up to date. This information could be an important contact tracing record for the Ministry of Public Health in the unfortunate event of an outbreak.
