Primary School Sport: An action-packed week ahead

Primary Sport looks forward to a weekend of swimming, gymnastics and football tournaments as well as an action-packed week of sport.  Good news for our footballers as the Saturday football programme gets bigger and better in Term 3.

The weekend ahead is one of our busiest ever.

We have our first ever gymnastics competition, the Marlin Mayhem and also girls and boys U11 TISAC Football Tournaments all at the weekend.

The children will also be extremely busy during the week with many different events lined up. On Tuesday Bangkok Soccer Schools will be here to coach football to our Reception children from 8.30 - 9.30 a.m. All our FOBISIA squad will be playing tee ball on Wednesday and our U9 children playing football in their TISAC tournaments on Thursday.

Also, during our curriculum PE lessons we start our second round of endurance running. This is not a race and is not about running fast. It allows children to work at their own pace and run for as long as they can without stopping. Once they stop then the test stops and the distance they have run is their score. We will give the children the scores from Term 1 so they know what they are trying to beat. Once again during this time we will be talking to children about living a healthy lifestyle, the types of the exercise they can do away from school and the importance of exercise.

We are happy to announce that we will be starting Saturday football from Term 3. Mr Damon and Mr Graeme will be coaching the football sessions and are excited about this positive development for the children at STA. Please use the Moodle sign up to book a place for your child.

Swimming

Our annual home meet, the Marlin Mayhem 2018, will be taking place next weekend (Saturday 31 March - Sunday 1 April). Please come to support our Marlins swimmers who will be competing against other schools such as Bangkok Patana, Bangkok Prep, Harrow, Shrewsbury and Concordian to name but a few. The event will take place at High School starting from 8.00 a.m. to approximately 4.00 p.m. on Saturday and but we hope to finish earlier on Sunday.

  • U11 Girls TISAC football festival - TISAC @ Soccer Pro - 27 March @ Soccer pro

Gymnastics

The Moose Games is STA’s first ever gymnastics competition and will be held from 31 March to 1 April. The squad has been working hard on their routines and now look to perform against the best schools in Bangkok. It will be great to see our gymnasts perform at this level. The new Flames Gymnastics kit will soon be ready for the team’s debut competition. This year is our first year with a gymnastics squad so it is fantastic that we can already compete. This is just the start of our gymnastics journey and we now look forward to adding more events to our school calendar. The competition falls on the same weekend as the Marlin Mayhem so these children will have to choose which competition they want to take part in.

The Moose Games Competition Times

Our Level 2 girls will compete on Saturday 31 March in the last session from 4.30 p.m. If the schedule runs on time, they will finish around 7.30 p.m.

 

Our Level 3 girls will compete on Sunday 1 April from 9.00 a.m. and are scheduled to finish around 11.30 a.m.

FOBISIA Training

We will soon have the full schedule for the Primary Games at which point I will contact all FOBISIA team parents to arrange a meeting to share the programme of events and also answer any questions you have.

Now is a time to start thinking about the kit your child will need for the FOBISIA Games. All items are available in the Uniform Shop. If your child does not have the Flames Teeball logo on their PE top please bring it to K.Seung to have the logo added.

  • STA Cap
  • STA tour bag or rucksack
  • Athletics vest
  • PE top with Flames Teeball logo
  • PE shorts x 2 or 3 (athletics, football and teeball)
  • Yellow football top
  • STA football socks
  • Tour top
  • Marlins top
  • School swim suit
  • STA Swim cap
  • Goggles

Term 3 Training

  • Wednesday - All FOBISIA SQUAD (Years 6,5,4) will have athletics training. This will give all children a chance to work on their athletic events.

  • Friday - All FOBISIA SQUAD (Years 6,5,4) will have teeball training at the Arsenal training facility Pridi Soi 21. We normally only do this a couple of times before FOBISIA, but by using the bigger teeball pitches at Arsenal for longer, we will be better prepared.

If you have any questions please email damon.se@standrews.ac.th">Mr Damon.

School Online Communication System - SOCS

We hope you may have had a chance to look at our news Sports portal, where we are already posting fixtures, team sheets, photos etc for our busy sports schedule. You may access it using this link.

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.

Mr. Ollie presented the new system to the High School students in early March so that they may get to know it. He’ll recommend to them that they show it to you too, in case you’re interested.

We recommend that you visit the site and familiarise yourself with it. If you have any feedback, please let either damon.se@standrews.ac.th">Mr Damon or ollie.fa@standrews.ac.th">Mr Ollie know.

By August, we hope everyone will be ready to use SOCS to follow the action!
