Primary Physical Education: 

U/11 BISAC Track and Field Championships

Published Wednesday, May 20, 2009.

Primary Athletes conclude a memorable year of BISAC competition with victory in the under 11 Boys and Girls Track and Field Championships


On Saturday 16th May our six boy and seven girl Under 11 athletes would have been relieved to look out in the morning to see clear skies and confirmation of their big day on the track at ISB. Our youngest competitors started their events in confident mood with the first track events over 60m leaving Peachy Ellis with a Silver Medal for the girls and David Gist a Silver and Hein Htet MacArthur the Bronze over the two heats for the boys. Over in the field events the Long Jump had started with Ross Nicholson taking the Gold for BISAC schools for the boys and Molly Frain claiming the Silver and Angelina Siddons who is still only in Year 5 taking a well deserved Bronze for the girls.


Next on the track were our 600m runners where Emilia Caule ran a great race to take Gold with a strong 4th from Pann Maleenont for the girls while Ross also ran a fine race to also win Gold with David securing the Bronze for the boys. Back to the field events where the High Jump was in full spring with David winning the Gold with a P.B. jump of 1.37m and Peachy retaining her BISAC crown with a jump of 1.35m.

On the track our 200m runners were also climbing the podium with Peachy claiming the Silver and Ellen Hagelauer the Bronze over the two heats and Hien Htet the Silver with a good run from our other Year 5 student Taran Muthukumaran. The final event on the field left Katie Lawrence-Smith with Gold in the Baseball throw and Basketball Push Pass with Molly the Bronze in the Baseball throw.

In between rain, the 60m shuttle relays got underway with the girls taking a commanding lead before the batton was unfortunately dropped but the boys held onto theirs to take a deserved Gold. For the boys Gene Ratanadaros and Fionn Baily certainly played their part in a strong team effort.

As the results were announced I was delighted to hear that both the boys and girls had won the Under 11 BISAC competitions with great performance from our Under 13 and 15 teams also.

The Track and Field events brought the BISAC season to a close for our Primary athletes and I am delighted and very proud to share our overall performances for the year.

A tremendous set of results from a large group of very talented young Patana Tigers. Year 4 and 5 you will certainly have a very exciting challenge on your hands for next year!

A huge thank you to all of the students who have attended our ECA training sessions for any of the above sports as the competition for places has been tough throughout the year. Also to all of the coaches without whom we would be unable to play at all and finally to our parents who support what we do so positively.

Last but not the least we look forward to our KS2 Inter Class Football during the week beginning Monday 9th July and finally the much anticipated Primary FOBISSEA Games in KL, Malaysia.

Stay focused children the year is not yet done!
