Primary School Sport: FOBISIA fun in Phuket

It has been yet another busy week of sport at St Andrews International School Bangkok. Read on for details of our exploits at the Primary FOBISIA Games as well as the first ever Mini Marlins Mayhem, gymnastics and tennis competitions. There is also advance information on squad trial dates for the start of the next academic year.

Primary FOBISIA Games 2018

Our 40 Primary FOBISIA squad children traveled to Phuket for 3 days of sport last week. It was a great opportunity for our children to compete against some of the best young athletes in Asia and to compete against FOBISIA ‘A’ schools for the first time.

And what an amazing week of sport it was. The children have trained hard for 6 months and the results were spectacular, finishing the most successful school out of the 7 schools involved. The determination, resilience and love of sport shown by our STA children was infectious and inspiring. Other than getting to compete at the highest school level in Asia and winning lots of individual medals our 2018 Primary FOBISIA team won 9 team trophies.

  • 1st Places: Teeball and both our boys football teams.
  • 2nd Places: Three Teeball teams and two football teams.
  • 3rd Place: Athletics

This is an incredible achievement and we are very proud of the children. Thank you to the parents for your support over the last 6 months and thank you to the staff who always show such enthusiasm and passion for our children’s development.

Gymnastics

With the year coming to an end, the STA gymnastics programme is in a very healthy position and looking to grow next year. We will have a further squad for our Year 1 & 2 children which is very exciting. Also, with the new BISAC opportunities, we will add further competitions to our calendar.

Over the weekend our Level 2 and 3 girls competed at the Falcons Gymnastics Competition. There were some brilliant individual performances by our STA Team. Thank you very much to the girls involved and also Miss Bogi and her team.

Year 5/6 Sports Day

What a great morning our Year 5 & 6 children had at their 2018 Sports Day. The resilience, grit and determination shown by our children was in abundance. But after over 3 hours of sport in which the children worked hard to make as many points for their House, there could only be one winner, KAREN!

One of our very own swim teachers, Khun Nok, has been asked to represent Thailand at the 1st Asian Masters Swimming Championships in Japan from 12 - 16 July. Khun Nok will be swimming in the 100m. backstroke, 100m. breaststroke and relays.

You will probably see her training in the pool every morning in preparation. Being invited to represent your country is a fantastic achievement and we wish her all the best for the Championships.
