Let me guide you through our large team, as I know you will need to know who to go to if you’re interested in your child participating in sport this year.
At our Primary School, PE will be led by Mr. Damon, Head of Primary PE & Sport (firstname.lastname@example.org). All matters concerning Primary PE can be directed to him. He will be supported by K.

Primary Sports Information
Last year was a massive success for Primary sport and we are looking to extend and grow in 2017/2018.
We have lots of opportunities within our new sports program and many competitions throughout the academic year.
The swim programme will continue to grow with more space in the pool for our Primary children. The important dates are below.
- 24th-30th August 2017: Swim Squad Time Trials
Please email our Head of Primary Swimming Khun Goh for more details (email@example.com)
We have a new Head Coach for tennis and there will be 3 ECA's available for Years 1, 2, 3 and 4. Also, the Flames Tennis will train every Thursday and this is for the selected players from Year 4, 5 and 6.
Gymnastics is a new sport we're developing this year and we will have 4 ECAs and 1 Primary Flames Gymnastics Squad for Year 4, 5, 6 (every Thursday).
There will be Basketball squads for U9/U11 boys and girls, with the U11 teams now being able to train after school rather than lunchtime as in previous years.
Basketball for U11 girls is on Mondays and U11 boys is on Thursdays, both from 2.45-4.15pm. Basketball for U9 boys and girls will be on Friday lunchtime (12.40-1.10pm).
Football squad training for U9/U11 boys (Year 3, 4, 5, 6) will be on a Monday as usual but U9/U11 girls(Year 3, 4, 5, 6) will change to a Tuesday. This is to allow more squads to train with our coaches and to have the extra coaching time to develop.

Also along with weekly Monday-Friday training with Bangkok Soccer Schools (STA ECA program) we also have BSS squad training on Saturday mornings:

If your child did not attend the sign ups please email me to let me know which sport he/she is interested in.
Please if you have any questions about any of the sports or opportunities next year then please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that we use email for day-to-day communication regarding sports events. Please ensure school has an up-to-date email address for you.
We post regularly to the St Andrews Facebook page and I’d recommend liking it so that you can see photos of our teams out and about.
We send surveymonkey forms for many events. It would be much appreciated if you could be diligent about completing them, so that we have accurate information to pass to our Transport Department.
As we begin to form our many squads, we’re already planning some major experiences for STA Flames members. We have the U15 FOBISIA Games in November at the Thanyapura Sports Resort in Phuket, and we’re hosting the NAE South East Asia Primary Games in December. Mr. Damon will contact Primary parents soon about this.
We’ll be sending football teams as usual to the Phuket 7s in November, and entering FOBISIA Tennis also. We will also host our annual STA Swim Champs this term.
There are many games and meets in between and they can be found on the STA Sports Calendar on Google alongside our school one. If you have problems accessing this, please contact Miss Aanchal.
