The winter season is always filled with events and festivities. This year was especially memorable as it gave our community a sense of closeness we had not experienced since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Wells Bang Na parents, students and teachers planned activities and celebrated together in a few special ways:
Place of Grace Donations
For the past three years our students and teachers have worked together to take action in the local community. Wells Bang Na has developed a connection with Place of Grace, a foundation that works to improve the lives of children in the Maha Thai slum community. For one month, students and families brought presents and food donations to the school. We aimed to collect 100 gifts in total. By the end of the gift and donation period, over 160 gifts had been given! Additionally, the community donated enough food to fill the food pantry for months. The students of Wells Bang Na were extremely proud to know they made a difference for others.
Frost Fest Show
The Wells International School students and parents were very excited on Wednesday, December 14th, as the Bangna campus performed the Frosty Fest 2022 show. The students danced with enthusiasm and were risk-takers. Some classes danced to Christmas songs while our grade 3 & 4 students performed short skits. Having parents on campus with us this month was a treat. The students might have been a little nervous, but they do love to share their talents and hard work with their friends and families!
On Friday, December 16th, Wells International Bangna School held a fun fair! The students had a great time playing games and making festive crafts. There were activities like the crazy dress-up game, minute-to-win-it games, cookie tower, and even picking candy canes up with string. The students decorated cookies, made Christmas decorations and even made Christmas cards at different booths. The students replenished their energy with popcorn, candyfloss pancakes, and even Christmas tree brownies and snacks offered by the catering company, Foodhouse. The parents were equally involved in this day by contributing their time by working at the PTO booth, and our Santa Clause was cool with his sunglasses.
Student Reflections Video
The students of our school love to share their ideas, experiences and thoughts with others. In this video, you can hear a little bit more about their views on the meaning of Christmas. We hope they continue to think about the greater meaning of Christmas and all the ways they can share and care for others.
