Year 6 Assembly – Imagination
Friday saw further ‘firsts’ for our school as Year 6 presented our first assembly in our new meeting room. The students really projected their voices well to explain how important it is to use our imagination to have ideas, solve problems and make dreams happen. Their research and accompanying presentation was very professional. Their final message was to tell us to never stop using our imagination not matter how old we are! Thank you Mr Paul and Year 6.
Wish upon a Star
We also welcomed Mick Duggan from Mercy House and Nicola Virgo to our assembly on Friday. Mick and Nicola introduced the students to a Christmas project which is being organised by our Parent Teacher Group. Mercy House is an orphanage in Pranburi. Some parents visited the orphanage over the weekend and asked the children in the orphanage to make a wish for a present at Christmas. They put their wishes on stars. The PTG is asking for us to choose a star and provide a present for a child in the orphanage.
The stars will be displayed in school and we ask you to choose one. If you can then provide the present and bring it wrapped, the PTG will give it to the child in the orphanage and make their wish come true.
Many countries across the world take the day of November 11th to remember all those who have given their lives in wars. The date marks the end of hostilities in World War I. Mr David has organised the sale of poppies through the British Legion. These are on sale in our foyer. You have already been very generous. Thank you.
On Friday November 11th at 8:40 we will hold an assembly and observe a minute’s silence. Parents are welcome to join us for this assembly, which will be held in the meeting room in the new building.
We will be holding our Loy Krathong festival on Monday November 14th. Students will be making Krathongs during the morning and will also be reflecting on their worries, thoughts for the future and giving thanks. This year we will not be dressing up or dancing as we are passing through the end of the first 30 days of mourning for HM King Bhumibol. We would really appreciate help from parents to make the Krathongs.
