Best of luck to all the children that are competing at the U11 BISAC singles tennis tournament at Patana at the weekend.
Thank you to all the parents that came to the FOBISIA parents meeting last Thursday.
Athletics training will be at the Ramkhamhaeng University Track on the 9th/16th/23rd May. This will be great preparation for our young athletes to work on their track and field events in the proper environment.
It is now 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
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 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 Mr Damon or Mr Ollie know.
By August, we hope everyone will be ready to use SOCS to follow the action!
Saturday Programme and Outside Opportunities
Our Saturday program continues to grow and it is great seeing so many of our STA children coming to school to enjoy playing sport together.
On saturday we had our very first Saturday football. Close to 60 children were at STA on Saturday to enjoy playing football. If the weather is bad then training will continue in the Redroom.
I will send an email to parents but due to a recent development we can not do Saturday Football on the 16th June so it will change to 19th May.
Also, we have the Open and Flames basketball which once again continues to grow with so many children enjoying playing and being coached a high level of basketball.
