Thank you for all your helpful feedback regarding Nord Anglia Education’s decision to temporarily suspend all fixtures for its family of schools worldwide.
NAE Senior Leadership has just completed an assessment of how Southeast Asia, and Thailand in particular, have handled the ongoing pandemic. This review board considered the low COVID infection rate in our country and the stability of these numbers over time. The level of cooperation and compliance associated with the Thai Government's policy to re-open schools was also taken into account.
Following this review, St Andrews has received approval from the NAE Regional Team to resume sports fixtures and competitive activities with other international schools in Bangkok.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Thank you to everyone who is working so hard to organise our International Days this year. The International Day assemblies at Primary School will take place on Wednesday and Thursday with the National Flags Parade. Each assembly will feature just two year groups and their parents.
- On Wednesday from 8:15 am the assembly will be for Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2).
- On Thursday, there will be two assemblies for Key Stage 2: Years 5 and 6 at 8:15 am in the Sports Hall and Years 3 and 4 at 10:30 am.
These assemblies allow us to celebrate the range of nationalities and cultures within our school, and as a visual representation of this diversity, everyone will be asked to come dressed in their national costumes or in colours representing their country.
For three days the Primary children will participate in a range of activities aimed at promoting understanding and awareness of the strength that comes from a diverse but united whole. These days will serve as great opportunities for everyone to find out more and celebrate the richness of the cultures we all come from.
On Friday 2nd October, there will be no opening assembly in order to allow more time for country representatives and parent helpers to set up the Sports Halls and ensure that everything is in place. Only parents who are helping at the country tables will be able to come to the International Food Hall.
Each year group and class coming through the International Food Hall will be carefully scheduled and allocated a specific time interval to explore all the tastes on offer. Children will be served the different foods they would like to try from each table. This arrangement will also facilitate a nice socially distanced gathering at what has always been a highlight of our International Day celebrations.
