St. Andrews International School, Sathorn has announced plans to host activities for their entire school community of children, parents and staff on Thursday, September 30th to commemorate the worldwide children’s wellbeing event Global Be Well Day.
A number of different activities will be organized to celebrate Global Be Well Day – an international event run by Cognita, the global school group comprised of 85 prestigious institutes including St. Andrews Sathorn.
St. Andrews invites Bangkokians to join in the celebration, where more than 58,000 youngsters from all over the world will come together to raise awareness on the importance of mental wellbeing in education.
The purpose of the Global Be Well Day initiative is to give, connect and do. Throughout the week, activities focused on empathy will be staged, promoting connections with others and the network of Cognita schools.
To better understand how children can help people in their communities during this time of the Covid-19 pandemic, members of the Bangkok Community Help Foundation will be there to discuss the matter.
Miss Karen Pennock, who is the Head of School at St. Andrews International School, Sathorn, revealed: “We’re excited to be connecting our children with tens of thousands of young people around the world to mark Global Be Well Day 2021, and would love for our local community to join with us.”
“The work we’re highlighting on 30 September informs and supports everything our children do throughout the year, placing emphasis on the vital role that wellbeing has in academic success,” Miss Pennock added.
The school has been regularly updating followers of their social media pages regarding the upcoming occasion. This week in the lead up to the big event, they highlighted the participation of one of their students.
They recently made a post to raise the issue of #empathy, giving as an example the sterling efforts of Ria in Y4, who cut off and donated her hair to a local cancer charity.
St. Andrews International School, Sathorn is located in Bangkok’s Central Business District and is a small community elementary school that provides students aged 2 to 11 a British International curriculum in an environment that promises to be safe, happy, and inspiring. It focuses on developing positive attitudes that will impact children’s futures.
The community activity day, which will celebrate its third year, was created to expand understanding of wellness for everyone, including children, parents, and teachers.
