Primary School Sport: Displaying our sporting excellence

The second half of Term 2 kicks off with a huge number of opportunities for children to represent St Andrews International School Bangkok in sport. Football, gymnastics, tennis, swimming…. The list goes on.

Welcome back. I hope you have had a relaxing break. We come into a busy period of sport with more football, swim meets, BISAC Athletics, badminton friendlies and gymnastics @ the Black and Gold Competition and the Moose Games. It’s so exciting to see so many children participating for STA across a huge range of sports.

We have been saving up all the brilliant experiences and events over Term 1 and now parents can see the boards with new pictures of the sporting trips, swim meets, competitions and tournaments that have taken place. We love to celebrate how truly brilliant our children are and this is one way of being able to reflect and show all the things we have done.

Football

After the success of our U9 Girls teams it was our U11 teams’ turn in their TISAC Festivals. After a slow start the quality of our girls’ team came through dominating their games and finishing top of their league. Our boys’ Blaze team only lost one game and are still in with a chance in the 2nd festival. All the second TISAC Festivals will take place this half term, plus more football opportunities for our teams.

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).
