Head's Lines: Try Out Week

As you are aware our school has an open admissions policy - meaning we do not select children purely based on academic ability but consider children’s particular needs and whether we are able to cater to them. 

We have built an unparalleled capacity for learning support that runs parallel to our mainstream programmes. Our Learning Support Department has grown and become more specialised in recent years to the point where our STARS and Embracing Differences programmes allow even more children facing significant challenges to access and enjoy an international school education. Being fully inclusive means we aim to allow everyone to access all the different opportunities across the school, and our sports programme is an ideal illustration of this.

It is great to have sports teams that perform at a very high level, and we can certainly claim this at St Andrews. However, student involvement in sports cannot be purely selective on ability but should also take consideration of who wants to participate and even learn to play. At St Andrews, sports is also viewed as a healthy form of relaxation that allows students to build friendships and socialise. For this reason, we have ‘Try Out Weeks’ where children of all abilities can come along, have a go, and hopefully enjoy themselves. The School then tries to provide enough places and coaches for them to develop into good sports players.

Last week it was great to see so many young people participating in Try Out Week. Large numbers of boys and girls of all age groups - from the youngest players through to the Senior teams in High School - helped create a great buzz after school, especially those participating in football and tennis last week. From all this interest, our Sports staff will now try to ensure that as many individuals as possible are supported with the right coaching, so that we can field a competitive team to play in league, inter-school and international matches once these resume in, what is hoped, the not too distant future. More sports tryouts take place this coming week, and I look forward to all that energy returning to school again.

Primary Parking

Thank you for everyone's patience as we have gradually improved the flow of the cars as children arrive and leave school. It has been great to see so many children being dropped off at the Key Stage 2 Drop Off Point, all eager to leap out of their vehicles with all their things for the day and venture into school. It would improve things even further if those families arriving at school with personal drivers would refrain from parking in the Main Car Park. Instead, it would be better if these drivers would exit out of the Car Park and come back later to pick up parents should this be required. This will allow for an even better flow of traffic, and allow parents of our youngest children to be able to find parking spots quickly, escort these tiny tots to the school entrance, and hand them over to our waiting school staff much more smoothly. This has really worked effectively thus far, and increased cooperation is getting better and better each day. Greater numbers of personal drivers not parking in the Main Car Park would lead to even better results for all of us.

At the moment Soi 20 is still being used by some families to drop off their children in the morning. It would be much more helpful if parents or drivers would instead use the Main Car Park entrance through Soi 20/1 to drop off students. The long line of cars in Soi 20 is adversely affecting the operations of the free Shuttle Bus Service the school provides for parents and children going to the High School, Ekkamai BTS (at Gateway Shopping Mall), or MaxValu Sukhumvit 71 - the latter service for parents returning to their parked cars in that lot. Moreover, the residents of this soi, as well as the surrounding sois, have complained about cars from our school community parking inappropriately and blocking egress into their home. It is understandably frustrating for these residents not to be able to leave their own homes in the morning.  A solution would be for our community to refrain from using Soi 20 as a drop off point or a place to park/leave vehicles idling in. The impending risk we face as our school community is that we will be formally asked by the authorities and the Police to close the Soi 20 gate, adversely affecting our community’s access to school, as well as our ability to provide a timely and effective shuttle bus service.

I sincerely ask everyone to consider this problem on behalf of our community’s common good and switch to using the Main Car Park Entrance via Soi 20/1 as a drop-off point instead of regularly relying on Soi 20. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and for adjusting your morning routines.

Parent Teacher Group (PTG)

Our PTG were not able to have an Annual General Meeting (AGM) during Term 3 when the school was temporarily closed due to the government lockdown. Therefore, we hope parents will make a special effort to attend the AGM scheduled on Wednesday 9th September at 8:15 am in the Exam Room located on the 7th Floor of the R Building at Primary School.  We are really looking for new members wishing to join the PTG to come forward, but we also hope you can get to know the fantastic group of current volunteers who are already working hard in preparation for our International Days later this term.

Obviously, under the present pandemic conditions, events and preparations have to be thought through very carefully this year, and it would be great to have as much support and input into these great school community celebrations as possible.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support and cooperation. If you have any issues or require any support with the start of Term 1 at St Andrews, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office at either Primary or High School, and we will put you in touch with the best person to address your needs.

School Calendar 2020/2021

Three weeks ago it was announced that Friday 4th September and Monday 7th September are now national holidays to replace those missed during Songkran or the Thai New Year. As a result, St Andrews will also be closed on these days. To compensate for these unexpected holidays, the calendar for 2020-2021 has been updated and is available here.
