Vaccinations, CIS visit and Covid protocols are covered in this week’s letter….
It seems as if we are quickly moving into the end of Term 2 with the excitement of performances, assessments and extra-curricular competitions and activities.
As expected, our return after half term came with more than usual covid cases reported within the community, mostly mild symptoms, but our continuing protocols have been able to prevent wide community spread. Still, we urge you all to be cautious; we all have varying degrees of immunity and even if you have had multiple vaccines, you can still transmit the virus to those around you who are more susceptible. Please continue to consistently practise the 3Ws.
We are delighted to confirm that many of our 5 – 11-year-olds who had been registered through the school, have received their first vaccine dose. The last group of children have received their appointments to be vaccinated this Saturday. The guidance from the hospital is to avoid rigorous activity, please advise your child’s teacher if you do not want them to participate in PE next week.
The School has been busy preparing for our upcoming CIS virtual visit starting on 21st March. We will have a virtual visiting team of six experienced educators who are mainly Asia-based and will be talking to students, parents and staff across the school. They will also be visiting classrooms to see our learning and teaching in operation. We are expecting a detailed report from the visiting team within the next month and we will share their feedback with you.
Congratulations to our SEASAC Swimming team with the Boys’ team bringing home the Gold and the Girls’ team, the Bronze. Our Tennis team will compete in the FOBISIA championship this weekend and we wish them all the best. Go Tigers!
We are celebrating Smile Day tomorrow at school. As part of the celebrations, we encourage everyone in our community to wear bright yellow and perform random acts of kindness. Donations made in support of Smile Day this year will go to Operation Smile Thailand.
Just a reminder to regularly check and read the emails you receive from school and look through Patana News. These are our main channels of direct communication.
Wishing everyone a restful weekend and make sure that we all continue to wear masks diligently!
Best wishes, Senior Leadership Team
