A Colourful Day to Remember

The annual Premathlon returned in full bloom last Friday, November 18th. Over 850 students, parents and staff crossed the finish line in one of our multiple races that took place. House points were given to each House racer and then extras for placing in each category. Those who crossed the finish line wearing beautiful orange, blue, purple or green also helped raise the point totals for the day. 

I’m proud to announce that FIRE HOUSE won the event by 1 extra point. (See? Every single person matters!) In 2nd place was Water, followed by Earth in 3rd, and Air in 4th. The attached poster gives the current House Cup point standings overall. Thank you so much to the Precious Plastics team for designing and creating the unique recycled medals that every Junior School child and all race-winners earned. We appreciate you!   

By far the biggest winners on Premathlon day were our 7 school charities. We’d like to thank all of our generous raffle sponsors, parents and participants who donated money on the day, bought food from one of our vendors, supported our PSC, and helped learn about the great work our students do. We raised just over 65,000 THB at the event and profits will be split between these groups to continue the great work they do. 

From providing cleft lip palate operations for children to helping stop human trafficking; from assisting low-income applicants in receiving business loans to caring for local cats and dogs in our community; Prem is a community that cares and your generous support at the Premathlon has enabled us to continue doing just that. We will continue to pay your kindness forward. 

Congratulations to Fire for winning this event and to Water House who have now taken the House leaderboard lead. What will the 3 remaining House contests bring for our community? We shall see…

Until next time #GoPremHouses,
