Phuket Soccer 7s (24th-27th November)
Well done to the U9 boys, U11 boys, SNR boys and U13 girls/boys for yet another successful football tournament. Every year the competition and the standard improves. Our teams played some fantastic football with the SNR boys reaching their final narrowly losing to a very good team. Our girl’s football just keeps getting better with the U13 Girls reaching the semi-final, which was a massive achievement for the team. Also, there was success with the U13 Boys and U9 Boys reaching finals in their competitions. Well done to all the students for their hard work over the first term and thank you to all the parents that traveled to support the STA teams.
Primary Nord Anglia Games (25th-28th November)
We had a hugely successful first-ever NAE Games in Pattaya last weekend with our U11 teams. We travelled from school on Friday to the tour hotel and met all the other teams at the Welcome Ceremony. Saturday saw our girls Teeball team win gold whilst our boys Basketball team came a close second, losing to a very good team by only two points in our first game, but closing out all the others convincingly.
On Sunday, the boys lost just one game of Teeball, finishing runners-up once again, whilst the girls won all their Basketball games to be crowned Champions for the second time in two days. This included a thrilling game that swung in and out of our favour before being decided with a basket by the Flames in the final seconds.
The Games concluded with a great Gala Dinner that was such fun. Our players showed great sportsmanship throughout, being gracious winners and fantastic company. Thank you to the many parents who supported both teams and coaches alike. It made for a truly warm Flames community event.
