FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools In Asia) started as a collection of colleagues in British-styled international schools in Asia looking for fellowship and professional support. From this grew an organisation which now numbers 39 schools which are located in Asia.

The student events range in sports from Primary to Secondary Level.

  • Primary FOBISIA Games consists of four main sporting competitions in Swimming, Athletics, Football and T-Ball.
  • Secondary FOBISIA Games consists of four main sporting competitions in Swimming, Athletics, Football and Basketball.

Through these activities students from different countries and cultures are able to interact and enjoy working together on common interests. They benefit from sharing ideas, challenges and comraderie between our schools.
