Poppies Remberance Day

Head's Lines: Remembrance Day

Remembrance Service at the British Club proved, as always, to be a very moving and thought-provoking experience. Let's continue to remain vigilant and work together to maintain this new normalcy and stability over the four remaining weeks of this Term. Finally, let's look forward to Loy Krathong, a cultural festival that the whole of Thailand will celebrate this Friday.

Remembrance Day

Last Sunday, I attended the Remembrance Service at the British Club which proved, as always, to be a very moving and thought-provoking experience. There are still many conflicts and threats of conflIct around the world, and listening to the poems and readings during the service reinstalls the commitment we all should have towards peaceful solutions to these disagreements. It was great to attend this service with Eloise (Year 9) and Ms Sarah. Eloise laid a wreath along with a whole procession of other embassies, businesses and schools in remembrance of those who have died or suffered due to armed conflicts around the globe.

4 weeks til Christmas 

Thank you to everyone for cooperating with all the school reopening requirements and complying with the ATK testing so we can try to keep everyone safe within our school environment. This past week at school actually felt “normal” as everyone enjoyed themselves in their learning spaces and outside during break and lunch times. Let us all remain vigilant and work together to maintain this new normalcy and stability over the four remaining weeks of this Term.

Loy Krathong 

This week, I am really looking forward to Loy Krathong, the cultural festival that the whole of Thailand will celebrate this Friday, 19th November. It will be great to see the whole school dressed in Thai traditional costumes and for us all to enjoy a very nice day with the different events that are planned to take place. Then in the evening with our families float our Krathongs and wish for a bright future for the coming year.

Our School Director, Khroo Noke, and the Thai team have prepared some fantastic information to explain this lovely national festival, Loy Krathong.

A Message from the Thai Department 

 

Loy Krathong is approaching, and this year with so much rainwater, krathongs with candle lights in rivers and canals around Thailand should bring a serene atmosphere back to us after the stressful lockdown situations of the pandemic. For those who are new to Thailand, Loy Krathong is one of the most beautiful cultural celebrations in Thailand. Having been an agricultural society for thousands of years, people in the Golden Land (Suvarnabhumi - where Thailand is located now) have been heavily relying on water, both for their crops and their daily living. 

Despite the pandemic constraints on school-wide events, it won't stop us at St Andrews from safely celebrating Loy Krathong. Our students will learn all about the origin of Loy Krathong and how people celebrate it here in Thailand in their virtual Thai cultural assemblies. 

Primary students will present a fun performance showcasing the Goddess of water, Naga (a half celestial being half-beast creature in Thai myth believed to bring rain) and his rival, Garuda.  Primary children will also learn about Thai handicrafts and make a Krathong for their families. As is our tradition, everyone in the STA community will come in Thai costumes on this day. After a long period in the Virtual School Experience, it will be fabulous to dress up and see all our teachers, students and administrative staff in the beautiful traditional Thai costumes around the school.
