Primary School Sport: Girls win in the pool and on the court

Our swimmers competed at their latest Swim Competition, our Girls basketball team win their basketball league and our U11 footballers tested their skills against strong opposition. Plus our footballers get ready 2 big tournaments in the football calendar.

It is going to be an all-action three weeks ahead with swimming, tennis, basketball, gymnastics and 2 of our big football tournament (HIS Cup and BISP Soccer 7s in Phuket). St Andrews International School Bangkok teams have really developed over this first term and now it is down to them to go and perform against some really strong opposition in Bangkok and the rest of Asia.

Football

All of our children in the U11 boys teams were in action at BPS this week. The children really enjoyed the experience and gave some children the opportunity to represent STA for the first time. Also, for the team that is going to BISP Soccer 7s, it was a chance to play against a team they may face in this years competition. There were some really position performances and something we will look to do again in Term 2, especially with our girls team who missed out this time.  

Next up for football is the HIS Cup on the 16th November. 50 of our Primary children will compete against the best school football teams in Bangkok. Please feel free to come along to support and encourage our teams. Then on 18th November it is the turn of our U9 boys teams to go to BPS and test themselves against strong opposition. Then finally before we break up, we have the BISP Soccer 7s in which we have 40 Primary children going to perform against the best school football teams in Asia. Last year our U9 girls reached the final and our U11 came 3rd, so we are hoping to build on this and maybe get our first ever Champions trophy at the BISP Soccer 7s.

Dance

What an exceptional performance by our dancers at the TISAC dance competition. For the second year in a row, our dancers were crowned champions. The level of performance was just mind-blowing. It takes a great degree of hard work and skill to carry this performance off, well done all dancers. Plus thank you to the great teaching of Miss Cherry. Please click on this link to see the performance.

Parents

It is great that more parents are supporting our teams across different sports. The Primary PE and Swim Department teachers and coaches really appreciate parent involvement. The Code of Conduct below is a reminder of the expectations we have of our STA parents at sporting events. If you are unhappy with any situation at a sporting event, please come to see me or email me to book a meeting. Please note that it is unacceptable to confront a teacher/coach during a tournament or a game. The PE and Swim department look forward to seeing you at the next tournament/fixture.

Swimming

It was an overall excellent effort from our Primary Marlins this past weekend at ISB Swimfest as we were able to come away with 1st overall in 8&under girls and 9&10 girls age group. A big thank you to everyone involved including the parents. Up next is the Bulldog Cup at Prep coming up on Saturday, 23rd November.

Nord Anglia Games

One of our overseas trips during Term 1 is the NAE Games (Dec 6-9), which is a 2-day tournament combining basketball and tee-ball. This year we travel to Vietnam for 4 days. It is a great, fun tournament for the children and the PE look forward to taking the 20 children from Year 5 & 6 on the trip. Children have now been confirmed and also children have been put on a waiting list in case a place becomes available. 

*The Parents meeting is on the 14 November in the PE department. 

BISP Soccer 7s

The first overseas trip of the year is at the BISP Soccer 7s (Nov 21-24). This is a 4-day football trip where we stay on Surin Beach at the Novotel Hotel. The tournament is the biggest school football tournament in Asia and is one of our favourite trips. Children have now been confirmed and also children have been put on a waiting list in case a place becomes available. 

*The Parents meeting is on the 31st October in the PE department. 

Sporting Conferences

We appreciate that you are often hearing different acronyms - TISAC, BISAC, FOBISIA - that we are involved in but may not know much about them. We hope that the following overview will, therefore, be useful.

We are currently members of four conferences or organisations:

TISAC: Thailand International Schools Activities Conference

We have been members for many years. This has 16 schools involved which vary in size from small to very large. Currently, we mostly enter Blaze teams in TISAC. There are leagues and tournaments in several sports from U9-U19 and next year, TISAC will also start its own multi-sport Games for Primary children.

BISAC: Bangkok International Schools Athletic Conference

This is our first year in BISAC. The 12-school membership includes the largest international schools in Bangkok in leagues and tournaments across many sports, from U9-U19, split into four seasons through the year. BISAC schools also run invitational tournaments.

FOBISIA: Federation of British International Schools in Asia

This has three major multi-sport Games per year (Primary, U13 and U15) that take place in Phuket against other schools across Asia. There are also single-sport events in Tennis, Golf, Swimming and more, which take place across Asia and provide some amazing travel opportunities.

NAE: Nord Anglia Education

We are part of the South East Asia division and meet for a U11 multi-sport Games once a year. Our schools take it in turn to host the NAE Games.

In addition, we are part of the wider circuit regionally which means we are invited to a whole range of other events across Thailand. 

Currently, we are able to offer STA students opportunities through these conferences in Football, Basketball, Swimming, Tennis, Badminton, Golf, Teeball, Track and Field, Triathlon, Cross Country.

If you have any questions about these conferences, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Damon (damon.se@standrews.ac.th).
