Sport: Puppy Cup showcases bright future for young Marlins

Our youngest Marlins took to the pool over the weekend and gave the STA community a sneak peek at future champions. And don't miss the latest in High School Sport news...

Primary School Sport

It’s been another busy week with football friendlies and then the weekend swim meet. Unfortunately, our Wednesday trip to Harrow was cancelled due to the storm but hopefully we can rearrange this fixture as it gives so many of our squad players a chance to represent STA.  I hope the children are enjoying the new Fitness Studio where we have currently curriculum lessons for yoga taking place. Also, I hope they like our new roof on the swimming pool which will come into full effect in the heat of the coming months. Our Primary site has had so many positive changes over the past few years making it brilliant for our expanding  sports program.

Swimming

Our STA Primary children had a great day at the Puppy Cup 2018 and swam extremely well. Thank you for the hard work from our swimmers and our STA parents for their brilliant support. A special mention also to the swimmers competing in their first ever swim meet.

Football

After our recent success we now focus our attention on TISAC football.  This year we hope to give as many boy squad players some game time as possible. But our girls U11/U9 A squads will play in their TISAC league games. The times of the games will be from 1pm-4pm and the dates are:

  • U9 Boys TISAC football festival - 31st January @ ASCOT
  • U9 Girls TISAC football festival- 6th February @ Soccer Pro
  • U11 Girls TISAC football festival -7th February   @ Soccer Pro
  • U11 Boys TISAC football festival - 7th February @ ASCOT

Badminton

Our Badminton squads have started and we will be looking to get some friendly games in before our tournaments.

If you would like your daughter or son to take part in the open badminton on a Tuesday then please email Khung Seung at (seung.sa@standrews.ac.th">seung.sa@standrews.ac.th).  

Badminton Squad training is in the Sports Hall from 12.40-1.10 pm:

  • Every Tuesday lunchtime for U9s from 12.10-12.40pm in the Sports Hall

  • Every Thursday lunchtime for U11s from 12.10-12.40pm in the Sports Hall

Saturday Program and Outside Opportunities

Our Saturday Program continues to grow with so many great sporting options for our children.  It is great that STA students can come to the Primary school and keep active over the weekend and have fun with their friends playing sport. On Saturday mornings we have gymnastics, girls football, yoga, Club Basketball and our Flames Basketball Academy.  Currently, we are looking at opportunities to extend the football so that all of our children have the chance to play football at the weekend.  We are also trying to encourage more children to join up for endurance events that take place specifically for children at the weekends.  If you would like to know more about our Saturday program please email Mr Damon (damon.se@standrews.ac.th">damon.se@standrews.ac.th) or to enquire about the endurance events, please email Khun Seung (seung.sa@standrews.ac.th">seung.sa@standrews.ac.th).

High School Sport

3 on 3

Flames 3on3 Basketball Invitational

On Saturday, 10th February, we are hosting our first major Basketball tournament. It is open to U15s and has attracted top teams from across the scene in Thailand including top school teams from BISAC, two basketball academies and teams from Pattaya and Phuket.

We’re really excited to be amongst the first to host a 3on3 tournament. It’s a very exciting format played at one end of a bball court between two teams of three players. The short format games make scoring very important, and we should see lots of shooting and plenty of fast action.

Please feel free to come and support us in our Sports Hall at High School. We will be using our bleachers for the first, with games streamed live on our Facebook page.

Sports Days

We’re planning our annual House Sports Days for this term. To accommodate the large numbers in school, we’ll again have split days for all Year groups as follows:

  • 27 February: Year 7

  • 28 February: Year 8

  • 8 March: Year 10

  • 9 March: Year 9

This means that everyone will participate in a full athletics programme. In keeping with our approach to offer non-competitive roles, there will be a limited number of marshall places available for those who would rather help organise than compete.

Sign-ups will take place on Friday 2 February at a special House assembly. The students themselves decide what it is they’d like to do. There’ll be several opportunities available for each student (depending on House size) and we hope that everyone will select at least one event.

The strongest male and female athlete in each House in each Year group will participate in a separate pentathlon event, consisting of five compulsory events. This is a very unique opportunity for the most serious athletes, for which there is a separate trophy to recognise their achievements. They don’t compete in the regular events, giving more chances for others to win medals. We think this works very well and spreads the opportunity for success much wider.

U13 FOBISIA Games

Training resumes this week and continues until we leave for Phuket. If your child is part of the team, please try to ensure that they are present for all Friday training sessions. Thank you.

Fitness in Key Stage 3

One of our developments this year in PE is to replace our termly Bleep Test with a new exercise to engage our students in fitness and measure their progress.

Our target is that by the end of Year 9, all St Andrews students are able to run 1,500m - without walking!

In order to achieve this ambitious target, we’re committing to termly practices, starting at the KS2 target of 1,000m and building up over the nine terms that a student spends in KS3.

Early results show that currently, 92% of Year 9 are able to run 1,200m, with many capable of the full distance already. We have some work to do to be 100% successful and we hope that you will support your child in their efforts to get fit!

It’s been a pleasure to see how the fitter students have been supporting their peers during the practice to help the whole group to be successful, and the resilience shown by some of those who have found the target challenging.
