House Athletics Meets 2018

We enjoyed our first two House Athletics Meets last week, with the Y7s and 8s in action at Ramkhamhaeng University stadium. This week we have the remaining two events:

  • 8 March: Year 10

  • 9 March: Year 9

The rosters are posted on the PE notice.

All 570 students in Years 7-10 will be competing or marshalling in our biggest Sports Days ever. We have a full programme of track and field, with over 400 medals to be one, several Pentathlon trophies ‘up for grabs’, and one House trophy for the overall winners.

Students will need to wear their House t-shirt, PE pants and trainers. They should bring sun-cream too.

Basketball

Please note that we have several changes to our scheduled basketball programme this week due to cancellations by other schools.

The U13 games against Shrewsbury are no longer taking place, nor is the U13 Development game against KCS.

Instead, we’ve arranged some replacement games as follows:

  • Wednesday: STA U13 Boys v STA U14 Boys & U13 Girls v U13 Development team.

  • Thursday: U15 Boys v Somtawin School (Hua Hin)

  • Saturday: U12s Coed (Y7 Flames Basketball Academy members) v Ballers (10.00am)

  • Saturday: U15 Flames Basketball Academy v Elevate (11.00am)

  • Saturday: Senior Boys (Flames) v Ballers (12.00pm)

Holiday Camps

We will continue to offer activities for those who wish to participate in organised sport during the holidays, starting with our Multi Sport Camp at Songkran (9-12 April). We’ll also offer another bball camp, although it is likely to run in the afternoon at Songkran.

More details will be posted here soon and sent home via email. As usual, we’ll also use Facebook and Instagram to keep you updated as events come along.

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 will be presenting it to the High School students on Wednesday 7th March in the Sports Hall at 12.45pm 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!

Primary School Sport

This week the swim team will continue with their aquathon training during lesson time. Plus we have 40 children going to Shrewsbury for teeball matches and our U9 children playing their second TISAC football festivals.

Before the end of Term 2 all the children from Year 3-6 will do their second running endurance test around the school and they have their Aquathon (during their swim lesson) that starts from 12 March. The running endurance test 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.

Football

We come to the second round of the TISAC festivals and and then the TISAC Tournaments. Plus we have the U9 boys and girls Tournament on the 10 March @ Patana.

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. The new Flames Gymnastics kit is nearly here and it will be great to see our gymnasts perform at this level. 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.

Basketball

After the success of their first fixture last term, the Year 4 boys and girls squad have been invited to go to Patana to play against their year 4 team on Thursday 22 March. The selected children will leave school at 1.15 p.m. and head to Patana for a 2.30 p.m. tip off.

Swimming

There are 2 swim meets scheduled for March. These will have the strongest swimmers in Bangkok and it’s a great chance to compare and compete against the best.

  • BISAC Swim Meet - 17/18 March @ NIST

  • Marlin Mayhem - 31 March - 1 April

Teeball

In preparation for the FOBISIA Games we have agreed a fixture against Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury play at a similar standard to the teams we will face at FOBISIA so this is a brilliant learning experience. All the FOBISIA children will leave early from school at 1.15 p.m. and head to Shrewsbury for the games.

  • U11/U10 teeball (FOBISIA Teams) @ Shrewsbury - Monday 5 March.

  • Teeball @ TCIS - U11 Girls - Tuesday 3 April

  • Teeball @ TCIS - U11 Boys - Wednesday 4 April

  • Teeball @ ASB - TBC

  • Teeball @ NIST - TBC

Aquathon

The dates for the Aquathon are a little complicated due to the children’s busy schedules, but the majority of the aquathons will take place in the week 12 to 16 March. Exceptions to this are the Y3 and Y4 Tuesday swimming groups who will have their aquathons on 20 March and the Y5 Monday swimming group will have theirs on 2 April.

The children will be asked to run and then swim the distance they feel they are capable of. These events are a great way to help the children work on their determination and resilience. By completing these type of events and not giving up children will get a real sense of achievement and a belief that they can achieve anything with hard work. There are two Aquathons:

Normal Aquathon

  • Year 3/4 - 4 laps (1K) running and 2 loops in the pool
  • Year 5/6 - 5 laps (1.25K) running and 2 loops in the pool

Aquathon X

  • Year 3/4 - 6 (1.5k) laps running and 3 loops in the pool
  • Year 5/6 - 10 (2.5K) laps running and 4 loops in the pool

FOBISIA Training

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.

Saturday Programme and Outside Opportunities

Our Saturday Programme 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).
