Our Senior Flames teams travelled to Pattaya over the weekend to attend the annual Games. On Day 1, our girls had a great run to the semi-finals in the Basketball, where they were narrowly beaten. They bounced back and won the playoff for third. The boys, meanwhile, went all the way to the final of the Football, where they finished runners-up.
On Day 2, both teams reached the finals, with the girls claiming the runners-up spot in the Football and the boys going all the way to the Basketball Championship!
Both teams deserve praise for the way that they worked hard and represented STA. We’re very proud of them.
Last Friday, the students signed up for events at their Sports Day on the following dates:
27 February: Year 7
28 February: Year 8
8 March: Year 10
9 March: Year 9
The rosters will be posted on the PE notice board later this week.
We’re looking forward to four great days off site at Ramkhamhaeng University stadium, with each Year having their own event for the first time.
Students will need to wear their House t-shirt, PE pants and trainers.
Our Term Break Basketball Camp is back after all the building work over previous holidays. We’re offering High School sessions (Y7-9) at our High School campus, Monday 19 Friday 23 February.
Please log onto Moodle and look for the sign-up in the left hand menu.
This is a great opportunity for our STA children to stay active and to build on their skills during the break.

School Online Communication System - SOCS
We’re very excited to announce that we are now using a new online system to help coordinate our busy sports schedule. The SOCS programme is used by many large schools around the world and is essential to us in moving to full BISAC membership in the near future.
The system allows us to input all team data and details of each fixture. There is a calendar, the option to upload photos from games and there are maps to many of the venues. Training schedules and changes to training can be accessed on the site.
The site is open for players and parents alike to check rosters, schedules etc. It is a great tool for communication between coaches, players and parents, though unlike the current system, the emphasis will be on parents and players to be proactive in checking the site, rather than awaiting emails from coaches!
We will still need to communicate via email for transport requirements for the time being.
We are in the process of building the database of information to make the site fully functional, but it is essentially up-and-running.
We recommend that you visit the site and familiarise yourself with it. If you have any feedback, please let either Mr Damon or Mr Ollie know.
By August, we hope everyone will be ready to use SOCS to follow the action!
