Monitoring the Conditions
As ever, St Andrews International School Bangkok continues to monitor the climatic conditions to ensure that our students can exercise in a healthy and safe environment.
We are always checking the condition of our facilities and making changes if we see something that we consider might be unsafe, whether that be structural or a change to the way that we operate.
In addition, we monitor the temperature (we use an index that measures the ‘feels like’ temperature, which accounts for the high humidity in this part of the world), the possibility of lightning strikes and the air quality. We work with policies that cover all of these, and these are also applied to activities that take place off-site.
Currently, the air quality in the area is poor (rated ‘unhealthy’). We have cancelled or moved outdoor activities as a precaution and will continue to monitor the situation throughout the week.
Our U13G Blaze team had a friendly this week, which they won convincingly. It was great to see more ‘first-timers’ representing St Andrews, and doing so with such competence and pleasure. The girls are entered into the TISAC league this term along with our Boys Blaze team, so they will get to experience more competitive sport to make the hard work in training worthwhile.
Please note that the BISAC tournaments for U13 and U15 Flames teams are on Saturday, 2 February. This is the same day as Fun Day, which is unfortunate. We hope players will still be available for their season-ending tournament.
Please remember that this Friday & Saturday is the Harrow Football tournament.
Well done to all players involved in the Varsity BISAC Singles Tennis Tournament. A special mention to Now who won 3rd place in his draw.
