KIS is a well-established member of TISAC (Thailand International Schools Activities Conference) and, along with 14 other international schools, participates in the range of activities provided by the organization. The purpose of TISAC is to provide a well-rounded programme of both sports and cultural activities for participating schools that will achieve recognized educational objectives and provide an enjoyable activities programme for all participants. Participation at TISAC events is open to students from Kindergarten and up (5 years +).
Primary School students are given the opportunity to strengthen their skills and to try out for different TISAC sports teams. Students can practice their skills during the after school programmes, during the Friday clubs and at lunch time. Secondary School students train and build skill tactics for TISAC competition in the Sports Coaching Clubs.
Participation in KIS sports classes as well as commitment to practice are the stepping stones to selection for the KIS TISAC teams. League members are required to conduct all competition in a spirit of good sportsmanship

Physical Education at KIS aims to engage and empower students to understand the value of living a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Students learn, both about and through, physical and health education.
An inquiry-based learning approach is used to enable students to develop physical, health, and sport concepts, first at a basic level and then in progressively more complex situations. In addition to subject-specific content, students also learn how to work effectively with others by refining collaboration and communication skills. Swimming is not only encouraged, but it is also a part of the curriculum at KIS Additionally our programmes allow for the development of leadership skills and a sense of social responsibility. Being in an international school, the program aims to expose students to a variety of games and activities from around the world, providing further opportunities for intercultural understanding. PE at KIS strives to allow every student to experience success while simultaneously challenging them to step outside of their comfort zone with the goal of reaching their potential.
Ultimately the goal of the program is to foster well-rounded young adults who understand the intrinsic value of living a healthy lifestyle, and who have the required physical literacy and confidence to participate in, and enjoy long-term physical activity.
Our after school programme for both primary and secondary students offers non-competitive sports for those who want to stay active, have fun and participate in non-competitive sporting activities. These sports include badminton, tennis, basketball, football, futsol, swimming and ping pong.
