NAE SEA Games Cambodia 2018

Full Event Review!!! - NAE SEA Primary Games Cambodia 2018

Day 1 - 

The first day of sport and what a day it was!

Unfortunately no silverware was won but a lot pride and commitment was clearly shown.

The girls fielding 8 players against a suggested 12 was always going to be a tough ask.  That said they batted amazingly to narrowly lose two games by just one run and then a further depleted team in the play off game meant that we came 7th.  That said, all the girls improved from the first game and learnt much about the game and, more importantly, themselves.  

The boys won two games and ended up tied 5thplace against Regents Pattaya.  A very respected and established school in terms of sport in South East Asia.  A fantastic day of basketball saw the boys mature and learn in every game developing into a formidable team.  The defence was like a solid wall and on another day, with a bit more luck, the ball would have dropped in the hoop some more and would have resulted in very different score lines.

Days like this cannot be underestimated in a child’s development.  They are physically and mentally demanding as well as emotionally draining and so tense.  The students have experienced pretty much every emotion today and in just two days the staff have commented on how much they have developed, and not just in sporting terms. Andy Dean, Director of Sports

We are exceptionally proud of the students efforts and are looking forward to tomorrows tee ball and basketball competitions.  

Thank you for all the emails that I have received wishing us well and also the parents who are here supporting and experiencing the same emotions as the students and staff!

Day 2 -

Another amazing day of sport and the students have made the staff so proud!  

The girls basketball team lost their first games but then won their next two games against NISC and BVIS.  However due to a point differential they were harshly eliminated into the 5th 6th place play off that they won comfortably.  That slightly overshadows the days play with perhaps the most exciting game of the day - when 2 - 0 down with 38 seconds to play, Mia cooly slots home a basket to take it to overtime and then scored again to beat the eventual runners up.  It was a hard pill to swallow but shows how good our girls were against much bigger opposition and on another day would surely have resulted in a top 3 trophy!

The boys made it just as exciting. Losing their first games but winning the next two - be it very very tightly - meant we were in the semi finals.  A very strong St Andrews team produced some amazing base running and fielding to win that game.  The 3rd place game went to the wire... literally - the last ball of the game BSY needed to avoid a home run!  They did it and have walked away with 3rd place in the boys tee ball

The three objectives prior to the trip were

1. Have fun.

2. Learn from the experience.

3. Win a trophy

Having spoken to the children I certainly think we have achieved all 3 objectives and the students are keen to get back to BSY practice some more and come back even stronger next year.

It has certainly been evident for the staff how much progress in term of physical development as well as maturity has been achieved.

Thanks again for your continued support - it has been an absolute pleasure having the 18 wonderful students.

We were glad and proud that our child (Sayuri) got a chance to participate in the games representing BSY in the international arena. We feel this kind of event enables the child for all-round development apart from the studies, this also makes them learn life lessons, independence, being responsible, competitiveness, discipline and the team spirit. Sayuri's parents
want to express my appreciation and gratitude to you and your team for putting such a great effort and commitment in exposing our kids to various sports experiences.  

I could see much and lots of positive changes have been introduced in the sports area to bring BSY and the students to a greater level and reaching their maximum potential.  I can’t believe Hannah who has been weak in sports, suddenly love sports and challenging herself! Heartfelt thanks to the encouragement and trust the team has in every child! 

Apart from teaching kids to be ambitious and winning medals, these are all important basic life and social skills. Especially that they learn according to hands on experience and self realization (which I love! And not thru lecturing all the time). 
 Hannah's parents
These events are extremely important for our children to have opportunities to get more involved in sports; to have a chance to build new relationships based on a team mentality and strengthen existing ones; to learn how to work together, follow instructions and gain a bit of independence.
