High School: Sawadee Pee Mai Welcome to Term 3! STA Songkran2019_619001

Welcome to Term 3!

Our Songkran celebrations were a great way to end Term 2 and to (start to) say goodbye to Year 13. I hope that you have all had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday since then.

The school is very quiet today, with the Year 13, and Year 11, students now on Study Leave, before their IBDP and IGCSE exams begin next week. Lunchtime today was also very calm, as Year 9 have now joined Years 10 and 12 in the 12:30 - 1:30 lunchtime, meaning that all of the Year groups benefit from shorter queues and more space, both in the Canteen and on the field etc.

This week is Community Action Week in the High School, with the Year 12 Sustainability Group organising different eco-friendly products and workshops (Bangkok Soap Opera, Courageous Kitchen, Grin Green, Superbee and Zero Waste Thailand) to take place each day.

Next week is one of the highlights of every school year in the High School, the High School Production. There are still some tickets available for the two evening performances of Bugsy Malone, on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

These events and many others taking place during Term 3 are shown on the “highlights” calendar below, on the school’s full Google Calendars, available on Moodle (accessible via, and on this pdf version.

As you can see, it is going to be another very busy term, made even busier by three long weekends. As these mean that we will have significantly fewer Mondays than other days, students will have their usual Monday lessons on Wednesday 8th May and Thursday 23rd May. ECAs will still take place on the correct days, according to the separate ECA Calendar that has already been emailed to parents.

I look forward to seeing you at many of these events. Have a great Term 3!
