The Eagle vs. the Panther: Lifestyle

Going to SAS, students are able to collaborate and compete with other international schools all throughout South East Asia. Arguably the largest channels of school spirit every few months, IASAS (Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asian Schools) is an establishment that presents students with the opportunity to travel to and compete with JIS (Jakarta Intercultural School), TAS (Taipei American School), ISKL (International School of Kuala Lumpur), ISM (International School of Manila), and ISB (International School of Bangkok).

These six schools involved in IASAS have tournaments and events for nearly every activity: sports, music, forensics—the list goes on. But what about the lifestyles of the schools themselves?

This month, I reached out to Panther Nation, the student publication of the International School of Bangkok (ISB), to collaborate with them and find out more about the similarities and differences between a day in the life at SAS and ISB. A special thank you to Jaden Cilliers and Sara Khan, my points of communication at ISB who helped me bring this article together!

As the school year is nearly coming to an end, the seniors are the basis of this article. A reporter (me for SAS and Sara Khan for ISB) interviewed two seniors, asking the same questions pertaining to their everyday lifestyle in their respective schools and cities. We hope that you take away the diverse range of opinions and day-to-day habits that students at each school have. Here are just a few (and thank you to the four senior interviewees):
