Road construction begins
I’m sure that everyone will be very pleased to see the road reconstruction that is currently underway. Please be aware that at times, diversions may have to be taken whilst the works are carried out. When finished, it will certainly make our journeys into school a lot smoother and safer. .
Junior School Council
Our Key Stage Two students experienced the process of democracy this week as they selected representatives for the Junior School Council. The School Councils are really important as they provide a ‘voice’ for students in the way our school is managed. Candidates for the posts gave well prepared and confident speeches to explain how they would try to further improve daily life in our school.
Following a highly democratic process the following students were elected to represent the students’ views.
Students in KS2 and KS3 are currently focusing on being healthy and fit in their studies. They are learning the importance of washing hands and the ways that germs are spread. This is particularly important at the moment as there is a sickness virus going around the area of Hua Hin.
If your child does become unwell, please help us to prevent the further spread of this virus by keeping your child at home for 48 hours after the last bout of sickness.
We will continue to be extra vigilant in school and during this last weekend, we have carried out a ‘deep clean’ of the Early Years classrooms. We will do all we can to prevent this virus spreading and your support is most appreciated.
The San Paulo Hospital have offered us a place on their flu vaccination programme.
Nurses will come to our school at the end of September (date to be confirmed) to carry out vaccinations for those children, whose parents would like them to be vaccinated.
The vaccinations will cost 550 THB per dose and of course, will only be given to students whose parents have request this in writing. We will be sending out letters with further details at the end of this week and asking if you would like your child/ren to be included. Once we have an idea of numbers we can organise the exact date with the hospital.
Wai Kru Day
We are all looking forward to Wai Kru Day on Thursday September 12th at 8:40am in the canteen. Please do come if you can.
Another event that is coming up is our very first ‘ Music Cafe’. Mr Sam is inspiring our students and music it is set to really take off in our school.
The inaugural music cafe will take place on Wednesday September 18th at 4:45pm in the canteen. Some of our keen musicians will be performing pieces to an audience who will be able to relax with a coffee and light refreshments whilst they watch and listen.
International Service Residential
It has been a real treat getting news of our intrepid secondary students who are currently in Cambodia working on a service project (what’s this mean?) The photos and messages tell of a very positive team working together to make a difference to a community and having a lot of fun at the same time.
Home Agreement Letters
Thank you to the many parents who have returned the forms giving your responses regarding the taking of photos within school, school visits and confirming your understanding of our accident insurance arrangements.
We do need these to be completed by all parents. So, if you have not returned the form yet, we ask you to return it to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible. Please do ask for another form, if the form did not reach you.
Here is a summary of some of the sporting events coming up over the next few weeks.
