Our students get to take part in FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools in Asia) competitions and programmes across Thailand. The overall aim of the Federation is to promote excellence in good British-style education in our schools, and to provide opportunities for inter-school competitions and enrichment programmes.

The Primary Games involves the teams competing in multi-disciplinary events that include swimming, athletics, football and tee-ball. The team is selected from Green Valley in January/February and they train specifically for this event with after-school practises. In April the school hosts a Primary Inviational Games where schools are invited from across the region for our students to practise their skills. At the end of May around 40 children from Year 4, 5 and 6 then fly to Phuket for the Primary FOBISIA Games.
The Secondary FOBISIA games is held for Under 15s in November and the Under 13s in February. Again teams are selected earlier in the year and train for this event in swimming, athletics, basketball and football. All events are hosted at Thanyapura in Phuket, where they battle it out against approximately 8 other international school teams.For the Senior students, over 15s, there is no official FOBISIA Games but we attend the annual Senior Games hosted by Regents locally, where teams fly in to compete in football and basketball.
