St Andrews Swimming Galas

Early Years Water Day

Pattaya School No.5 ready to open new tuition building

St Andrews Swimming Galas

Students from Reception, and Years One and Two at St Andrews International School were eager to show off their emerging swimming skills at the recent Key Stage One Swimming Gala. The students had a great time participating in lots of different water events organized for both swimmers and non-swimmers. The "Treasure Dive" had everyone scouring the bottom of the pool to see what they could find and there was stiff competition to see what House could find and collect the most treasure! After the final scores were tallied up, the Red House emerged as the winners of a fun filled Key Stage One Swimming Gala.

The Red House are the victors of the K.S. 2 and K.S.3 Swimming Gala.

Keep Going! We’re nearly there...

"This is easy," says Nick.

A second day of competition was held for the older students in Key Stages Two and Three which resulted in a closely contested Swimming Gala. Parents, students and teachers witnessed a great display of swimming from all the children involved and everyone certainly swam for their House teams with lots of enthusiasm.

After a well deserved break and snack the children were able to participate in some fun races including a "tyre relay" and a "Treasure Dive". There was even a relay race for the mums, dads and teachers, which saw some interesting styles of getting the finish line first!

The overall winners of the Key Stage Two and Three and Swimming Gala was again the Red House, although the Blues and Whites provided some stiff competition. A big thank you to Mrs. Sribbans for organizing two great Swimming Galas, and to all the mums and dads who came along on the day to cheer for the competitors.


Early Years Water Day

Nursery and Kindergarten children had buckets of fun at the annual Early Years Water Day held at St. Andrews International School recently.

Activities organized for the day include a slippery water slide which had the children lining up to slide down on bottoms, back and fronts! There was also a wading pool to see who could make the biggest splash, and trying to catch a fish in a net proved to be challenging.

The children had a wonderful time throwing and catching the water balloons and everyone’s favorite event was the water bucket race held as the finale to the day. It was great to see so many mums and dads come along and participate in the Water Day and help make it a splashing success.

Pattaya School No. 5 finally has its brand new tuition building.

Pattaya school number 5 (Baan Nern Pattaya Nua) is one of ten schools under the supervision and budget of Pattaya City. The school provides education to kids between nursery level and Mathayom 3 level.

The school has 40 teachers and class enrollments of 1,200 students, most of whom are Thai-Muslim children.

When city officials learned that the number of the new family members in the area is rapidly increasing it was decided to construct one more building to meet to the needs of the community.

The city spent 6.4 million baht to build the four story-tall building which is equipped with 12 classrooms.
