U15 FOBISIA Games, Beijing
Last week, our U15 team returned from a great Games in Beijing. Despite very cold conditions, they excelled across all four sports, becoming Athletics, Swimming and Boys and Girls Basketball champions. This the first time we have won four FOBISIA titles at one Games, and the first time we have won a double in either Football or Basketball.
Well done to our students who have trained with great commitment and ambition, and who performed so graciously and with such team spirit. We are very impressed.
Next up: the U13 FOBISIA Games, here at STA in March 2017!

Harrow Bangkok Cup Football Tournament
Well done to all the Flames footballers who participated in the Harrow Bangkok Cup. Each year, our teams are getting stronger and the style of football we play is easily recognizable compared to the other teams. This is down to the hard work and enthusiasm of our coaches and players on a weekly basis. The children were impressive as always and worked hard for each other throughout the long day of football.
The U11 boys won their final with two quick goals and some brilliant team football. The U13 girls reached the final playing the best level of football in their tournament and remained unbeaten, only losing on penalties. The U13 boys finished 3rd while the U9 boys and U11 girls finished 4th playing against some very strong competition. Thank you to all the parents that came and supported the STA children.
Phuket Soccer 7s (24th-27th November)
The U9 boys, U11 boys, SNR boys and U13 girls/boys travel to Phuket on Thursday for the biggest football tournament of the year. Best of luck to all the teams involved.
