Years 4 and 5 work hard and have fun at their Sports Days and our footballers, teeballers and gymnasts continue to impress with some excellent results. Don’t miss out on the U11 Friday Night Game - come and join in the fun. Plus with FOBISIA nearly upon us please check the kit list for the trip!

Well done to both Year 4 and 5 for their excellence Sports Days last week. The PE team hope the children enjoyed the new layout and new activities.

The week ahead sees two big sporting events with the HIS football festival and also BISAC Tennis on Saturday 11 May. St Andrews International School Bangkok will be taking 90 children to the morning of football which is more than any other school in Bangkok. It’s is the last football tournament of the year and a great chance for our children to show the progress they have made and enjoy playing together one last time.

Tickets are for sale in the main Primary School Office and also in front of the Office this coming Thursday and Friday morning.

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).
