First of all, our apologies for getting the date wrong in last week's newsletter. The correct date for our Year 2 Christmas Party is Thursday 19thDecember ... we promise! On this day, we would like to see the children coming to school in their party clothes (which can themed for the season if you would like!) to enjoy a day of activities, games and a wonderful banquet lunch, followed by a magical Christmas film in the Black Box. What a day to look forward to! As we would like to make the banquet a very special occasion for them, they will be eating in a special banquet room with tables and chairs, table cloths and flowers! To make it all the more impressive we would like the classes to bring in some party food on the day to go with the food we will also be serving - all details about the day will follow in the Red Books in the next few weeks.
Secret Santa ... with a "twist"!
Would you like to make a deserving young child very happy? As we are coming up to the festive period, with many children receiving presents over the holiday and New Year, we would like to extend our gift giving and provide one for each child at the day care centre we support as our main Year 2 charity - Chanukroh Day Care Centre.
It is a centre for children whose parents cannot afford schooling or child care in the Samrong area. They care for children between 5 and 11, providing education and food for the children. We would like to give each child a shoebox filled with a variety of gifts up to a total of 300 Baht. This week you will receive a letter both by email and in your child's Red Contact Books indicating the gender and age of the child you are buying the gifts for. When your shoebox is completed please can you place it under the Year 2 Christmas tree in the Learning Den. We would like all of the shoeboxes brought into school by TUESDAY 17th December so they can be delivered on Thursday 19th. Many thanks.
