Primary School Sport: Taking aim

STA Golf hits new highs with our first ever team trophy! Our swimmers show their quality again and Juilliard dance their way into the Primary School.

What a brilliant week in Primary PE.  Golf has hit an all-time high with some incredible results at the FOBISIA Golf Tournament @ Black Mountain Golf Resort. We are looking at ways to develop our golf programme which will be a very exciting development for next year.  

Our swimmers were at the BISAC swim meet up against the best swimmers in Bangkok over the weekend and produced some great results.

Also, we finished off the Triathlons season and Juilliard came into Primary to kick start our Juilliard Dance Programme for next year.

Coming up this week we have Primary children off to Delhi for the FOBISIA Tennis, U11 girls TISAC Football (can the girls win the Championship), our KS2 Aquathons start and our athletes are involved in the BISAC Track and Field Meet hosted by STA.

Golf

Last week, we took a team from St Andrews International School Bangkok to the 2019 FOBISIA Golf Tournament in Hua Hin at the Black Mountain golf course. This was the first time that we were able to take a full team of 12 golfers; 4 students from Primary and 8 from High School. It was a fantastic week where all of the children were outstanding ambassadors for the school; the High School students did a great job of looking out for the Primary children and we were fortunate enough to have lots of support from our incredibly supportive parents.

Team spirit was clear for all to see, with parents and students looking very smart in their STA kit and everyone made a real effort to support each other. We were complimented by a number of coaches, parents and players from other schools on how sportsmanlike and polite our team was as well as how much effort they put into their game.

One of the highlights was to be the first team to win the net team prize and this was extra special as it was a combination of both boy and girl scores from both campuses that clinched this for us: Pun Pun, Leely, Jida and Boom. It was also really special to see how much resilience that the whole team showed. Black Mountain is a very challenging course with strong winds and extremely tough greens - this did not dampen the team’s spirits and many members were straight back out on practice areas to help them to improve for the next day.

Our Primary golfers were exceptional. JJ (Year 4) showed real courage and determination as one of the youngest players in his flight and was able to show his strength of character to bounce back after particularly difficult holes, especially as this was his first FOBISIA competition. He still has 2 more years to compete in this category. Fahsai (Year 5) managed to post some excellent scores and her positive outlook and sense of humour was a joy to be around, for us and the other competitors alike. This was also her first FOBISIA and she will have the opportunity to play in this group again next year. Pun Pun (Year 5) came 3rd in his flight, an excellent performance for his first FOBISIA and was one of the contributors to the net team prize. Leely (Year 6) played in a very competitive group and improved her score day on day to win her group with a final day score of 4 under par; an amazing achievement! Leely also came top of the net scores for her category as well as 2nd place out of all the girls for gross scores and 2nd out of nearly 128 golfers for net score for the tournament. She also added to this with an impressive win in the longest drive competition.

If you are a golfer and would like to try out for the team please contact Mr Matt matt.mc@stanadrews.ac.th">matt.mc@stanadrews.ac.th or Mr Damon Damon.se@standrews.ac.th">Damon.se@standrews.ac.th.

Swimming

We had a fantastic result from the BISAC Junior Swimming Championships this past Saturday at Harrow. Our Primary Marlins were able to come away 5th in overall point score. Our 9 year old girls were dominant as they won the Female Team Winner award. This was a great start to the BISAC Swimming Championship weekend.  Thank you to all our swim parents for your continued support towards the STA swim programme. Next Saturday, 23 March will be our 7-8 age group Marlins’ turn to make a splash.

Dance

It was a great day on Wednesday when we welcomed Donna Costello from the Juilliard School of Dance.  From next year, Juilliard Dance will be a formal part of our PE curriculum, so Donna came into the Primary School to see what our current programme is and how the Juilliard programme can be integrated into our Dance lessons.  Donna was highly impressed with Cherry and her teaching and went away feeling very positive about our STA Primary Dance Programme. Thank you also to all the parent community who came in to show off their dancing skills.

Triathlon

On Friday the PE team concluded all the final triathlons.  Well done to all the children for putting so much effort into the experience and making it so positive.  A big thank to Khun Seung for all the hard work she has put in for the children to be given this type of opportunity.

Football

Well done to the 50 U9 children who tested their skills against the rest of Bangkok at the BPS  Football 7s. The U9 children had a great time and produced some fantastic performances. The boys team was so close to winning but lost 2 important games. Our B team finished 2nd. In the girls tournament both our teams looked so strong throughout the tournament, with our Blaze team finishing 4th out of 10 teams and then our Flames team coming runners up.

See the highlights from the boys team here. The U9 next tournament is the end of season TISAC Tournament on 26 March.

On Tuesday our U11 Girls have the opportunity to win the TISAC League and make it a clean sweep for all our girls teams.

Also, we have the TISAC tournaments for U9/U11 coming up with both our U9 boys and girls in action on 26 March and then our U11 teams play on 30 March.

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).
