Key Stage 2: International Week Reminders

This Thursday and Friday, KS2 will be our chance to recognise the amazing cultural diversity of our school’s community with our annual International celebration. 

International Day

As mentioned previously, this year, the event has been spread over two days to help us manage the number of people in the Sports Hall for our assemblies. The following outlines the key parts of the two days and lets you know when you can also be involved.

Costumes

Thursday - the children should come wearing their national dress or wearing a costume that represents their country.

Friday - the children should wear an outfit which represents the colour of their flag or colours that represent their country. They may also wear their national costume again if they’d like.

Assemblies

Both of our assemblies will take place on Thursday in the Sports Hall and parents are very welcome to come along and join in the celebration.

  • Year 5 and Year 6 assembly - 8.15 am
  • Year 3 and Year 4 assembly - 10.30 am

Parent-Led International Day Performances

These performances will take place in the Sports Hall on Wednesday at 10 am and the show should run for approximately 30 minutes. Parents are welcome to watch these performances.

Photos

On Thursday, parents are welcome to come and take photos of the children in their costumes with their friends before they head into the assemblies. The teachers will bring their classes downstairs/outside for this. Years 3-5 will take their children outside the R Building and on the field. Year 6 will keep their classes in the Y6 Quad.

  • Y5 & Y6 - 8:15 am
  • Y3 & Y4 - 10:20 am

International Food Hall

One of the highlights of our International celebration for the children is our amazing food hall. This year we have carefully staggered the event to minimise the number of people in the Sports Hall at any one time. Only parents who are helping with each country’s stall will be allowed into the Sports Hall. These people will each have an Access ID provided by the PTG to help distinguish them. STA staff will help out on the doors to manage the flow of people and ensure these guidelines are being followed.

Pridi 20 Entrance Closing

This is a reminder that as of next Monday, 5th October, the gate on Pridi 20 will no longer be available for drop-off and pick-up. We have had to take this measure as requests to help reduce the traffic in Pridi 20 have been unsuccessful.

During this week and over the weekend, we will be changing the Pridi 20 gate so that entry will only be available to people with RFID cards. The gate will still be accessible to shuttle bus users and to residents of Pridi 20 and its sub-Sois. Pick up and drop off will no longer be permitted from this gate and cars from the STA community will no longer be permitted to park in the Soi. We will have members of our senior team on the gate from Monday morning to remind people about the new system and help manage the flow of allowed users through the gate.

Families and their drivers who currently use Pridi 20 for drop-off and pickup will instead have to make use of the drop-off and pick up facilities in the Main Car Park (for KS2 the drop off is in front of the car park). Parking for KS2 families is at Suk 71 (Pridi 24), or you can use the free ‘park and ride’ shuttle bus service from Max Value on Sukhumvit 71.

*Families with children no younger than Year 3 age must use the drop-off in front of the car park.

**We will be in touch with families who residents of Pridi 20 and its sub-Sois to arrange for RFID cards to access the new gate.

Let your child’s creative juices flow!

If your child enjoys writing, they will LOVE this worldwide creative competition for KS2 children: My Country.

The competition has a theme: ‘My Country.’ It requires the children to write a piece about either the country they are from, their ideal country or their favourite country in the world. Besides providing a great opportunity to showcase your child's writing skills, there are some great prizes to be won. More details can be found on the website.

The piece of writing must be completed and sent from home; however, your child’s teacher would be more than happy to give some feedback before it is submitted.

 The deadline for entering the story is Sunday 1st November 2020.
