    Our U14 girls basketball team took on APIS away today. It was such a close game, with the score moving between 4-6 points difference at the end of each quarter. APIS girls were strong and had great ball handling skills, we were fast and were great on defence. In the end, their ability to put the ball in the back of the net was too much for our defence. We learnt some great lessons and the girls played a fantastic game and are looking forward to the next! The final score was 20-16! Great job girls!

    What a fantastic way to kick off our Y1-3 & Y4-6 Swimming Gala's at Varee Chiangmai International School. The weather was perfect, the water was just right and the students were super excited to be in the water and demonstrating their abilities and newly learnt skills to both staff and parents alike! We'd like to thank all the parents who came to watch the gala and all staff who assisted to make this day possible. And a social thanks to Mr. Daniel & Mr. James (and our swim coach Marine Bobet) from the PE department who worked so hard to both train our primary students and organise/facilitate the gala! Come join us for the next one!

    More than 40 students and teachers from Varee International School attended School Strike for Climate this past Friday. Our school was among the biggest contingents at the strike and our students made us proud as they joined with other concerned citizens of Chiang Mai to demand action on climate change.

    Fresh salads, fruit, rice, pasta, pizza, and homemade desserts were on the menu at VCIS Wednesday, as students and teachers shared a vegetarian potluck lunch! We enjoyed the sunshine, music, good food, and lively conversation while also taking direct action to reduce our carbon footprints by reducing our meat consumption.  The main takeaways of the day: our students and teachers are excellent cooks, vegetarian and vegan food is delicious, eating as a community is really fun, and our choices matter. Going meat-free one day a week is one way we as individuals can have a direct impact on climate change. We look forward to any more Plant-based Potlucks in the future!

    Our JV squad (made up of mostly U14 players and some of our Y10 boys) and captained by AJ Stewart in Y11, played their first game of the season yesterday at Lanna International School. The game was always going to be the biggest challenge any of them had to date. With only one team practice under their belt and playing an older team with more experience, height, speed and knowledge of the game, our team talks focussed on our strengths, playing our own game, knowing our own worth and remaining calm under pressure. This appeared to be easier said than done as we ended the first quarter down by 12 points to 2. But after another team talk and some encouraging words by their captain the boys finally adjusted and started panting their game. Their defence was STRONG! In the second quarter, we managed to stop nearly every scoring opportunity with our 3:2 zone but our offense still wasn’t quite dropping for us. The game remained tight throughout the second half with our offensive game really starting to pick up and despite changes to the team to ensure all players got to demonstrate their prowess on the court, our defence remained tight! In the last quarter, due to a lot of patience, our offensive shots finally started to stop with our MVP HJ (Y8) hitting three 3 pointers! The final score 27-22 to Lanna but an awesome game and so much to take from it. We’re ready for the next one! 💪🏽

    This Saturday, September 21st was World Cleanup Day. VCIS students, parents, and teachers joined together with volunteers from Trash Hero Chiang Mai, to pick up litter along the Ping River. It was a beautiful morning of community service, teamwork, and fun, as we walked, sailed, and canoed along the river banks. There were many meaningful conversations and ideas exchanged as we took in the scale of the waste problem in Chiang Mai, and discussed the larger ecological crises we face. One student hit the nail on the head when responding to a comment that we needed the whole school here to begin to make a dent in the amount of trash. He said, ‘We need the whole city!’ Too true. We need the whole world. This is just the beginning. Watch this space for information about more cleanups and chances to get involved in the coming months!

    Fashion, fun, and eco-friendliness we’re front and center at Tuesday’s clothing swap! Students and teachers brought in gently used clothing, shoes, and bags to swap for ‘new-to-you’ ones.
    Everyone left with refreshed wardrobes and an understanding that by reusing and sharing we can reduce our consumption and our carbon footprint at the same time. Plus...it’s really fun!

    The windows are open and the lights and air conditioning are off as secondary joins together for a ‘No Power Hour’ Tuesday morning. This collective gesture is about saving energy and reducing fossil fuel use, but also symbolic of the need for action both as individuals and as a community.

    VCIS Trash Community Clean-Up. Today's event was about raising student awareness of the Global Climate Change Strike week which is happening this week across the world.
    World Clean Up Day is tomorrow, and VCIS did its part by organising a clean up this morning, in and around the community area of our school.
    In total, 90 bags of trash were collected by our students which was an excellent achievement, but also a hard reminder of plastic misuse and accountability.
    Tomorrow we have organised an event at the Ping River, to clean up that area for two hours and to remind all to do their part for future generations.

    We are super happy for our U12 boys basketball team who played their first ever game for VCIS yesterday at APIS. The game was a steep learning curve for the boys who as yet, have not played a full court full then game! Their defence was tight throughout and they adapted well to changes. Our target is to focus on our offence and shooting in our forth coming practices. The boys had just 7 players to the 13 APIS players but despite this, never tired, finishing the game with an extremely respectable 12-5 win to VCIS. Great job guys!

    Wow! What a great week for Basketball at Varee Chiangmai International School. On Tuesday 17th September we took our U14 girls basketball team and U14 boys basketball team to Lanna International School. The boys team played on the outside court and kept the pace and energy high despite the searing heat. The game looked in the bag from the first quarter with our squad out weighing our opponents in both height and physicality. It was a great game and Lanna fought hard to maintain a respectable score line. The game ended 28-6.

    Varee Chiangmai International School’s U14 boys basketball team played away at American Pacific International School on Tuesday 10 September 2019. The game was a great opener to their season and the boys were disciplined with putting into place the tactics they had been working hard on in practice. The game finished 36-6 to VCIS. The starting line up played a convincing first quarter with the end of quarter score at 12-4. With some team adjustments in order to rest players, we slowed down in the second quarter with the end of half score being 16-4. At half time we focused on highlighting our areas for improvement within this game and once again went out strong.. with the third quarter ending 28-6. The boys continued to demonstrate their passion and discipline for the game in the fourth quarter with the end of game score being 36-6. Overall an excellent opener to the season and we are proud of the boys’ achievement.

    We’re proud to announce what our PE Coordinator has done and is continuing to do for the development of sport for women and girls.
    Lisa Handy writes on June 24th 2019: 2 years ago today we broke our first world record with @equalplayingfieldinitiative .. a collective of women around the world who came together with one goal.. “equality, opportunity, respect, nothing more, nothing less”. Tomorrow I fly to Lyon for the #festivaloffootball2019 organised by #EPF and sponsored by @adidas @lenovo & @twitter alongside the #womensworldcup2019 in order to attempt to break 2 new records for the longest 5-a-side game ever played and the most nationalities in one game.. and keep creating change and moving things forward in the world of female sport. Proud to be part of this movement 💜
