The first overseas trip of the year is at the BISP Soccer 7s (Nov 21-24). This is a 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.
This coming Sunday, 29 September 8 & under squad swimmers will kick start our swimming season at Tiger Prawns Invitation at Patana. Competition warm ups will start at 8 am with the competition itself starting at 9 am. Final information for Tiger Prawns parents will be sent out before this Friday 27 September.
After Tiger Prawns, it looks like it will be a very busy October and November filled with swimming competitions including our away meet at ISB SwimFest and of course our very own STA Swim Champs.
Please stay tuned for more information regarding meet information.

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
