St Andrews holds Sport and Music Awards dinner for students

Friday, 07 October 2011 From Issue Vol. XIX No. 40 By  Amanda McCloskey and Jeff LaMantia, teachers at St Andrews International School

The first St. Andrews Sport and Music Awards Dinner was held at The Purimas Hotel, Ban Chang. We were delighted to see such a good turnout from our school community with over 100 people in attendance.

The evening was to acknowledge and celebrate all of our sporting and musical achievements of the year. All students who had represented St. Andrews in ESAC, FOBISSEA (games, music or choral) or taken sport or music examinations received a formal invitation.

After a welcome speech from Mr. McGee, our Assistant Head of School, our guest speaker for the evening, Coach Dillon, spoke words of inspiration for achievement and participation. Mr. LaMantia then announced the sport award winners. The Parent Sport committee also made a presentation to the Primary FOBISSEA coaches in acknowledgement of their efforts in Taipei. Mr. Williams also presented a rather large trophy to the staff football team who narrowly beat the student team.

Mrs. McCloskey then announced the Music Award winners. Teerawat Nantiyakul then performed a piano solo to a rousing applause, providing a superb end to the formal part of the evening.

We then all enjoyed a delicious buffet, spent time with friends and congratulated the winners. The evening was a testament to the students that we have at St. Andrews - a high standard of achievement with a friendly atmosphere. We look forward to another great year in 2011-2012.
