As we start arguably our busiest month of the year, we have been involved in a large amount of tournaments and fixtures this week, resulting in a championship and many medal positions.

On Tuesday we hosted the Football under 11 girls KL Sports League cup finals. Our first match was excellent, resulting in a 3-2 win for our girls against HELP International School. Our next match was against TIS Kuala Lumpur in which we dominated proceedings but succumbed to a 1-0 loss. In the final match we faced St Joseph’s which was an excellent game. We tried so hard but went 1-0 down. We won a penalty but the goalkeeper made a great save, meaning Mr Azharul’s team lost 1-0 and took a well deserved bronze medal.

The following day was a day full of Football fixtures. The highlight being our under 9 girls who competed in their KLISS cup finals at Tenby International School. They played fantastically well, were dominant and won all their games, meaning they were crowned as champions of KLISS! This team have a history of being successful in this competition and it’s been great to see them keeping up this tradition. We also had our under 9 boys B team competing for their KLISS plate. Our boys, led by Mr Zul, played excellently but just lost out on the plate, achieving a 2nd placed finish. Our under 11 boys B team also played on this day, coached by Mr Firdaus, winning their group at Mutiara International School and will go to their finals at the same venue next week attempting to bring back the trophy.

Thursday was a day for making history in our school. We took two teams to British International School Kuala Lumpur to compete in the KLISS Basketball under 15 bowl competition, our B and C teams. It is the first time we have ever had a C team (3rd tier team) compete in a tournament, which is credit to our department, coaches and students for their ongoing commitment and excellence. Our B team, coached by Mr Adrian, played fantastically achieving a 3rd place finish and our C team, led by Mr Owen, were a credit to our school, competing well and enjoying the occasion.

Our Football under 11 girls B team travelled to British International School Kuala Lumpur also on Thursday, drawing two matches and losing the final match which is a great achievement considering we could only field 6 players in a 7-a-side tournament. Our under 11 girls B team’s fixture was postponed due to bad weather, which will be changed to a later date.

Next week once again, we have many fixtures on the horizon. But one stands out - our Primary Athletics tournament! This will be an all day event on Wednesday held at IGB International School. The week after on Monday 18th March will be the Secondary Athletics turn, taking place in the familiar surroundings of Panasonic stadium. May I ask all participants to arrive to school at 6.30am as we will be leaving promptly at 6.45am to ensure we get a proper warm up and are ready for the events.
