FOBISIA was introduced in 1988 by a Principal at the British International School in Jakarta who was interested in sharing and supporting other schools with the British Curriculum. Its main objectives are to promote excellence amongst British Schools and to provide opportunities for inter-school competitions and enrichment programmes. The federation has grown over the past twenty-five years and now has over 50 schools in the group. The organisation is known and respected all over Asia and beyond, serving the interests first and foremost of all FOBISIA students, teachers and schools.
We had over 60 students showing interest in getting into the team, which is excellent. For the successful students who have been selected, training will start next week as part of the ASA programme. The training will focus on improving physical fitness along with skills based and game play training in preparation for the 4 sports which they will compete in.
