HCMC – About 300 student athletes from Australian International Schools (AIS) in Asian countries and territories are participating in the AISA Games on the AIS Saigon campus in Thu Duc City, HCMC.

This year’s competition is held from November 16 to 18, celebrating athletic excellence and solidarity among AIS facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Vietnam.

During the games, athletes are competing in eight sports, including soccer, basketball, touch rugby, netball and swimming.

After a four-year hiatus, the event is expected to provide a platform for athletes to engage in friendly competition and serve as an opportunity for schools to showcase their athletic abilities and dedication to sports.

The AISA Games finals, which are expected to eventually take place on November 18, will coincide with the Open Day of AIS Saigon, an event designed to introduce parents and children to the school’s core values, innovative curriculum, and its vibrant community.
