Primary School Sport: Football’s coming home

90 Primary children represent STA at the HIS Festival! Plus we had the U11 BISAC Tennis Singles Tournament.

At the weekend 90 of our Primary footballers, of which 50 were girls, played their last tournament of the year. It was a great morning of football for our children and a real coming together for a large portion of footballers and parents to play and cheer for one last time.

Also, well done to all our Primary tennis players who competed at the U11 BISAC end of season tournament.  Please read our tennis section for more details.

Plus last week we also had the Year 6 Sports day and our Primary badminton players had their end of season tournament.

Football

What an incredible morning of football with 90 of our children competing in the last tournament of the year.  We had the most participation by any Bangkok school which reflects the expansion of opportunities available to our STA children. Out of the 90 children involved 5 children were playing in their first ever tournament for STA.

In the end our teams reached 4 finals and won 2 with our U9 girls and U11 boys Flames teams becoming Champions. The rest of the teams all finished runners up or 3rd which shows the depth we have within our football programme.

Tennis

Well done to all the Flames Tennis players who participated in the U11 BISAC singles on Saturday. There were over 80 boys and 40 girls competing in this tournament with fantastic performances being shown by all the players and it was great to see our players continuing  to develop their game.

Congratulations to Yuzu and Yaya who made it to the final in the A draw competition. Runa and Grace were undefeated and came first place in their groups in the B draw competition.

It was our badminton players’ turn last week to show their skills in their end of season TISAC badminton tournament.  All the players had really positive results all winning medals. Out of the 13 schools involved we game 2nd in both the U11 and U9 categories, with our U11/U9 girls Gina and Prize both winning their tournaments.  Well done to all involved.

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">damon.se@standrews.ac.th).
