Keep in touch
Please stay up-to-date by joining our STA Flames & Marlins Facebook closed group for parents and students who are part of our Sports Programme. We try to add as many of the events we go to and also keep you updated on fixtures, competitions and tournaments coming up.
As it’s a closed group not open to the general public, please complete the questions so that we know if you’re part of our STA community.
Parents may post to this group and it’s been great to see some of your photos of our children in action!
New range of supporter T-shirts
We know how supportive our parent community is in the lives of our students at St Andrews International School Bangkok - it’s one of the things that makes our school so special - and we are excited to announce that we have a new range of parent supporter T-shirts just for you.
These great shirts are now available at the Uniform Shop at both Primary and High School for the very reasonable price of 250 baht (220 baht for the sleeveless top). Be a part of the team.
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 (email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org).
