I would like to give you a very warm welcome to St Andrews International School High School campus in 2018 - 2019 Academic year.
As usual this year, the Swim Team will provide a variety of options in our Swim Programme which is designed for all students from those who love exercising to serious swimmers. We provide 4 different programs plus 2 new water sport programmes - Water Polo and Synchronised Swimming - for students both before and after school as follows:
Development - emphasis on basic skills such as body position, breathing, timing, streamlining and core strength for all four strokes;
HS Silver Squad - physically and mentally ready to develop foundation strength and advanced techniques in every stroke;
HS Gold Squad - high standard techniques in all strokes and training to increase intensity;
HS Elite Squad – competitive swimming within a positive environment;
Water Polo - Fundamental skills leading up to competition skills, teamwork, and team strategies for competitions;
Synchronised Swimming - It is best defined as a series of dance steps performed over and under the surface of water, accompanied by music. Synchronized Swimmers will gain advances in water skills, strength, endurance, flexibility, artistry, teamwork, discipline and respect. This programs aims to foster a love of sport and self-confidence. For more details and information, we will be sending out an email shortly. Please note that this activity is only for female students.

We actively encourage our amazing parent body to be involved with us and keep fit. This sends a wonderful message to our students about leading healthy, active lifestyles both as children and as adults.
We offer organised sessions covering a range of sports and activities at school, using our facilities. These include volleyball, yoga, fitness, swimming, running, zumba, tennis. Some of these are run by our own staff and others are run by external staff.
Details about these will be sent to you and sign-ups are on Moodle, just as for ECAs. Key personnel will be Ann, who has children at High School and will be the parent liaison for this; and Miss Aanchal, in the High School Office (Front Desk) firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com
We love seeing parents work out during the day on campus - please come and join our active social circle.
(PS Volleyball is represented by our own Spicey Spikers, who even play against our girl’s team each term. Having lost some players last term, they’re now looking for new members. No need to be experienced - it’s all a bit of fun! Please contact Miss Jo (firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com. First session is at HS tomorrow, 21 August at 2.45pm).
