Game of the Month: BISAC U15 Boys Basketball v ASB

 

The U15 Boys’ faced tough opposition in their BISAC fixture against ABS. Despite facing opponents who are renowned for their Basketball prowess, they were no match for our boys. Senior Boys’ Coach, Mr Blakemore, had this to say about the game: “It was an immense defensive effort allowing ASB to score on 6 points in the first half of the game. Zone press forced ASB to turn the ball over in the 3rd quarter, allowing Prep to pull away from the visitors into a comfortable lead. There is still a lot more work to be done, but it was an impressive start to the season”.

Early Years

At Bangkok Prep, the Early Years curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework of England, emphasizing thematic topics and child-led learning for a stimulating and enjoyable school experience.
