Our future tennis stars were showing off their skills at their recent tournament at Patana. Lots of fun games and some excellent tennis on show as we continue to improve! Well done to all of the children involved.
Year 5/6 Sports Day
We have one final Sports Day on the 11th June from 8-11.50am. It will be an action packed morning in which children will try to accumulate as many points for their House as possible. Hard work, determination and lots of fun! Currently YAO have won all 3 Sports Days this year. Surely they can not win all 4?
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 programme 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. In case of bad weather, training will continue in the Red Room.
Our Open basketball and Flames Academy sessions continue to grow with many children enjoying the game and being coached at a high level of basketball.
If you would like to know more about our Saturday programme please email Mr Damon.
