High School Sport: BISAC Brilliance

St Andrews International School Bangkok was represented at a wide range of BISAC tournaments this weekend. Catch up on all of the results and take a look ahead at some important events ahead in what will be a very busy month of November.

BISAC Basketball Championships

We had a busy day on Saturday attending the four separate championships across Bangkok. All of our teams were at the Cup tournaments for the top six teams in BISAC and our players did us proud, working hard, showing their technical proficiency and performing well as teammates.

The U13G, U15B and U15G all made the finals, with the U13G and U15B winning well to be crowned BISAC Champions! This is a great achievement in our first full BISAC year.

We now move on to the Varsity season, whilst the U13s and U15s aim for FOBISIA, our Flames 3on3 and the Phuket 3on3 between now and March. The U15s will also be involved in the FNG#2, taking place in February!

Touch Rugby

The U15G went into their Cup competition on the back of two great wins last week. They performed well in the hot conditions, finishing a very admirable 3rd in their first-ever BISAC tournament.

November

November is a busy month for us with several major events taking place:

  • BISAC Season 1 Basketball and Tennis tournaments
  • U15 FOBISIA Games
  • Phuket 7s Soccer
  • TISAC Basketball tournaments
  • Marlins Swim Champs

We also have a huge variety of sporting fixtures covering football, rugby, basketball, swimming and tennis.

Community Sports Day, Saturday 10 November

Thank you to everyone who has signed up for our next Community Sports Day on Saturday 10 November. We’re looking forward to another fun afternoon of social sport, supported by our amazing PTG.

The tennis courts will be open for informal use. If you want to come and play, please feel free to join. We’ve already had some enquiries about playing and we’ll make sure that there are balls for you to play with.

TISAC Basketball

We have entered our U13B Blaze and Varsity Boys Blaze teams into the TISAC Tournaments coming soon. This will be a great chance to offer competitive opportunities for more of our ballers. We hope that they enjoy the experience!

BISAC Season 2

We’ll next be heading for BISAC Season 2: U13/U15 Football, Varsity & JV Basketball, Varsity Rugby & Tennis. Some of our Blaze teams will be entered in the TISAC Basketball tournaments.

Changes in PE

We’ve made an exciting change to the way that we group the students in PE. This will allow them all to enjoy mixed ability and gender groups, as well as a broad range of activities throughout the year.

The students will be in one of 6 groups, selected alphabetically. This has mixed them up and gives them a chance to socialise with students who may not be in their tutor group. They will remain in these groups for the remainder of the year, with one teacher responsible for them.

They will then enjoy a range of activities including different invasion games (basketball, football, rugby for example); net games (e.g. badminton, volleyball); striking games (e.g. softball) and fitness activities.

The focus in PE will remain on students not only developing sport & activity specific skills, but also on a whole range of skills that will enable them to be lifelong learners. At the heart of all this is a hope that our students also develop a love of being active and healthy!

Flames Tennis

Well done to our U13 Tennis players who competed in their BISAC Team competition this weekend. Our Boys finished 1st place in the Plate and our Girls placed 5th in the Cup. Below are reflections from some of our players:

I played singles on Saturday and I think that I have improved from the last few matches I played in the league. I had a great experience, playing with different players from different schools, which made the matches competitive yet enjoyable. It also enabled us to make new friends. I feel that I have done my best in the three matches I played and have no regrets. Thank you St Andrews for this opportunity! Isabel
I played doubles on Saturday and the matches helped us to improve communication and teamwork. Although we lost two matches, the mistakes helped us to improve coordination. Playing with different schools and players contribute to develop our skills and find out new tactics to win. Also, me and my partner got along together in the match. Thank you St Andrews for this experience! Noko
