Early Finish on Friday 11th:
In honour of HM the King’s birthday, a “Bike for Dad” gathering is scheduled for the afternoon of Friday 11th December. On this day, roads will close in Nonthaburi and central Bangkok from 12:00 pm., these closures will inevitably cause severe traffic jams.
As a result, we have decided to run a shorter school day on Friday 11th December. The school day will run from:
- 7:30 am. until 10:30 am. for Middle School and
- 8:15 am. until 10:30 am. for First School.
Children using the school bus will leave campus at 10:30 am. and parents are requested to collect their children promptly at the same time.
Please note that both the First School Family Day and Upper School Kanchanaburi Residential Trip will continue as planned. However, KS3 children will leave Kanchanaburi earlier than planned to avoid traffic congestion.
New Telephone Switchboard Installed:
At a recent Head Teacher Forum, parents expressed their concerns regarding the school’s telephone system as parents were experiencing difficulties reaching the school office. A new telephone switchboard has been successfully installed, and our new phone numbers are as follows:
- FAX: 02-952-4002
Extension numbers are:
- 0 operator
- 101 School Office Manager,
- 102 Accounts
- 104 for the school uniform shop
Clubs Term Two:
We have an exciting selection of clubs for next term. Club Descriptions will be sent out on Tuesday 8th December and on Friday 11th from midday onwards, parents are requested to sign up for their child’s club choices via our Parent Portal.
Christmas Bring and Buy Sale:
Reminder: The first of our Samakee Community Action fund-raising events this school year, the Christmas Bring and Buy Sale, will take place on the morning of Friday, December 18th from 10.30 a.m. to 11.30 a.m.
Please, can you encourage your children to send in any used or unwanted toys, games, books, etc. which we can sell on that day (in reasonable condition, please). Big collection boxes are in front of the kingpin court close to the school entrance, for children and parents to deposit donations. All monies raised this year will go to the local Thanksgiving Home Foundation. Thank you.
