Primary Sports Awards

It has been an action packed year of sport at St Andrews International School Bangkok and on 19 June we celebrate our brilliant children at the 2019 Sports Awards. Yes, these awards include individual awards that coaches have selected from a year of sport, but this awards celebration is far more than that with all the children who have competed for STA this year coming together to celebrate their year. The awards start at 3.30 p.m. in the Sports Hall. After the awards ceremony there will be food for both children (outside the Drama Studio, BBQ) and parents (Year 6 area). To finish the awards off there will be a disco for the children in the Drama Studio. Tickets go on sale today from the main Primary Accounts Office.

Mini Flames tennis players were in action in a Friday friendly fixture against the Bangkok Patana tennis team. It is great to see how much progress our players have made. This year has been a great year for these young players to learn, improve and enjoy the game. We are delighted to see many players get involved in tennis and most of all, they are having fun.

Thank you parents for your continued support and well done to all Mini Flames players!

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).
