The St Andrews School Fair raises money for Charity
The St Andrews School Fair a very, very successful fund raiser for charities supported by the school. The total amount raised was an amazing 279, 881.5B. This included a very generous donation of 120,000B towards Operation Smile from Khun Pattamaporn Ann Nokhong from the Laemthong Shopping Plaza Rayong. Other large donations included 30,000B from the parent Decou Page group who made and sold some very nice designer bags and wallets and 29,530B from the Primary and Secondary Student Councils. There were also a large number of smaller but equally important donations from other members of the school community, including the PTG, who ran stalls on the day. Thanks must also go to all the families who donated raffle prices or purchased raffle tickets. All these elements combined to raise this amazing amount of money that will go to help others.
The Year 12 students organized and ran the Fair. It is now their job to allocate how the funds will be spent. The plan so far is:
- 120,000B will be used for the next Operation Smile Medical Mission
- 60,000B will be donated to Habitat for Humanity to support their Philippines disaster relief effort.
- The other 119,881.5B will be used to go towards another St Andrews Habitat for Humanity building project here in Thailand as well as other charities that the IB students may wish to support.
The St Andrews School would like to thank everyone for your generous support.
