Primary School Sport: Eyes on the prize

Primary School Sport kicks off soon with fixtures in basketball and football, plus we have our first swim meet of the year fast approaching! Also, weekend sport is back in full flow!

tennis

We are now into week 5 and I hope all your children are enjoying their PE lessons. There is such a great range of sports they will cover over the year from badminton, dance, tennis to touch rugby, gymnastics and basketball, to name a few. 

Last week was the start of our after school St Andrews International School Bangkok Sports Programme. We have 670 different children involved over the week within our program. That is a really positive number and I hope your child/children enjoyed their first sessions and are looking forward to an exciting term ahead. 

We have our TISAC and BISAC basketball season coming up along with other friendlies and competitions in football and swimming. We plan to get as many children involved in these competitive games as possible with over 50 basketballers and 80 footballers representing STA next week.

Nord Anglia Games

nord anglia games

One of our overseas trips during Term 1 is the NAE Games (Dec 6-9), which is a 2-day tournament combining basketball and tee-ball. This year we travel to Vietnam for 4 days. It is a great, fun tournament for the children and the PE look forward to taking the 20 children from Year 5 & 6 on the trip. Children will be invited on the trip once we have looked at both our basketballers and our teeballers. If you would like any further details about the trip, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

BISP Soccer 7s

bisp

The first overseas trip of the year is at the BISP Soccer 7s (Nov 21-24). This is the 4-day football trip where we stay on Surin Beach at the Novotel Hotel. The tournament is the biggest school football tournament in Asia and is one of our favourite trips. If you would like any further details about the trip, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Swimming

Kindly be informed that this Wednesday, 18th September will be a good opportunity for squad swimmers in Mini Marlins, Development, Gold, and Elite to place an order for racing swimsuits in preparation for our swim season. This swimsuit order is optional as the school swimsuit sold at the school Uniform Shop would also work. The supplier will be in front of Swim Office (2nd Floor N block) from 11.45 am - 1 pm.

Other news, we have the Tiger Prawns Invitation swim Meet for our invited 8 & under swimmers coming up on Sunday, 29th September at Bangkok Patana. Please stay tuned for final information regarding the meet.

Keep in touch

Please stay up-to-date by joining our STA Flames & Marlins Facebook group for parents and students who are part of our Sport Programme.

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 kids in action!

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).
