High School Sport: Smiles all around

With term 2 fixtures kicking off, many Flames team first-timers are enjoying the spirit of representing STA in various sports and competitions.

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.

Football

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.

Tennis

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.

Happy new year I hope you have enjoyed your break. We are looking forward to your child being part of our Tennis programme this term. As of January, we are excited to be able to offer additional weekend training sessions for our students.

In addition to this our coaches are available to offer private or semi-private lessons outside ECA times. If you would like more information, please contact Mr Adam or Coach Pair via email or speak to one of our coaches directly.

Basketball

Our Varsity and JV teams are in action this season.

The JV Boys enjoyed a narrow win last week, as did the Varsity boys. The girls are a young team in a very strong cohort of teams with some outstanding female players on the BISAC circuit. They lost another game, which will place them in the Plate end of the tournaments, but the experience will be invaluable for them and should inspire them to reach the heights of some of the amazing ballers they are playing against.

FNG#2

Our next night game is on Friday 8th February against a visiting team from BIS Phuket. It will feature our U15 boys and girls team, as well as the usual music, popcorn and half-time shooting competitions!

Tickets will go on sale soon in the school entrance. (If you buy tickets for students not at St Andrews, then they must be accompanied by an adult).

Swimming

Massive thanks for all of your support in the FOBISIA Swimming 2019 over the past weekend. Another huge step forward for our swimmers with some amazing efforts in individual and relay events. Our Marlins took 3rd place out of 24 teams at the event.

STA parents are an important part of our team. On behalf of the swimming department, we really appreciate your support.
