Recently, St. Andrews International School, Green Valley hosted a fair to raise money for the flood victims in Thailand. It was organized entirely by the secondary students, in groups of 4-5, and they had to come up with a store/game for the primary students and parents to take part in.

There were lots of activities to do and we managed to organize some fantastic entertainment for the younger students. A few of the students even went on stage to perform live and show off their singing and dancing talents. Various instruments were also played such as the guitar and piano, creating a fun atmosphere for all participants in the event.

Some of the stalls included bake sales, guessing the name of a teddy bear, face painting, shooting balls into a basketball hoop, cupcake decorating, a bouncy castle, bobbing for apples, trying to hit teachers with wet sponges and so many more great activities to participate in.

The whole event was around 2 hours long, and we managed to raise 100,000 baht for people who have been affected by the floods. All the students were very proud with what they had managed to achieve with just a week’s notice to prepare a stall, decide who would do what, get prizes and finally to help out on the day. It was a fantastic event to take part in, especially knowing our money was going to such a good cause, and the support from everyone was outstanding, with lots of great co-operation from the students, parents and staff.
